Accounting Consulting Services
Technology is quickly changing traditional accounting. We go beyond typical bookkeeping services by providing expertise to keep your accounting function running efficiently and effectively, so you can focus on your business.
We understand that audits can be painful. Let us help your staff prepare for an audit by performing pre-audit risk assessments, and assisting with schedule preparation and process documentation.
Controller and CFO Services
Do you need a CFO but can't afford to take on the cost? Did you lose your accounting all-star and need help filling their responsibilities? Our professionals have helped bridge the gap between senior management and accounting staff for numerous companies, providing CFO and controller expertise at a lower cost than hiring in-house.
Financial Due Diligence
Mergers and acquisitions are riddled with complexities. Our professionals have been on both sides of M&A deals, participating in analyst calls and due diligence procedures. We understand what buyers want to see in your organization. Let us help you tell your financial story to get the most value out of your company.
We adopt a different approach to our accounting practice areas:
Tax: we take on tax matters only as an adjunct to our other work, and will also use tax specialists in the appropriate fields to help when needed.
Audit: we staff our audits with more senior staff for greater efficiency and effectiveness.
Outsource CFO & Controller Services: we utilize a team approach to address issues and provide solutions.
