A privately held company typically doesn’t issue an audited financial statement and is not under the same scrutiny with the SEC as publicly traded companies. However, privately held companies, like publicly traded companies, must adhere to generally accepted accounting practices or GAAP, but only to satisfy lenders, shareholders and insurers.
