Engagement letters that ensure you’re compliant with every client

You need engagement letters that evolve with regulatory changes to protect your business. OverSuite is the ONLY compliance solution for accountants that is continuously auto-updated by experts every quarter.

Are you still using engagement letter templates?

Back in 2020, we found many accountants we spoke to were behind on issuing up-to-date letters of engagement. And it’s no surprise, because building your firm’s library of engagement letters is challenging.

Every letter must be robust enough to give you the protection you need, yet clear and simple enough that all parties fully understand.

With this in mind, accountants typically rely on engagement letter templates. But this strategy is high-risk, because YOU’RE responsible for deciphering their meaning and correctly assembling all components into a suite of fully compliant documents.

Accountants just like you confessed that creating Engagement Letters in this way is:

  • Extremely time consuming
  • Shrouded in lengthy, complicated guidance
  • Beyond their in-house legal knowledge
  • Requires resource outside of their current capacity

If this sounds familiar, and you’re also relying on hope that your Engagement Letters are providing some form of protection, then we built OverSuite with you in mind…

Welcome to the new era of engagement letters

Leading experts didn’t just lead the creation of OverSuite engagement letters, their experience & technical expertise has actually been built into our software. This means that all you need to do is enter some key, simple inputs to generate a whole library of engagement letters in a matter of minutes. You’ll be safe in the knowledge that however complex your clients are, the right engagement letter is in easy reach.
