"The business owner is not alone when it comes to having the audit at your CPA's office: the auditors are familiar with me and my staff, they know us and know what to expect (they never know what to expect when they go to a business), my entire staff will treat them with respect and try to make them comfortable while they're here."
I've heard stories from taxpayers where they would put an auditor in a small back room with no air conditioning while it's 90 degrees outside. This kind of approach doesn't help your cause.
