Research & Resolve Complex Accounting Matters
We perform accounting research with focus on deep understanding of the business purpose, nature and expected results of the transaction. Practical application of the rules with knowledge of industry, business and transaction specifics is key to ensure that resulting accounting reflects the true intent of the transaction. Though the best approach is to get us involved at the planning stage of the proposed transaction, we can help to at any stage of the transaction. It is even more important to get a timely professional help with remediation of the completed transaction to avoid wasting valuable time and resources trying to comply with unintended accounting and financial reporting requirements some of which might have profound negative impact on operations and financial results of the company. We can help to plan and execute such remediation steps to achieve the accounting and financial reporting results most reflective of the transaction’s substance. If involved at the planning stage we can also help you negotiate terms and understand the accounting impact of each significant term. As a result of our research we will prepare accounting memos and white papers to satisfy the most rigorous demands of independent auditors and other interested parties.
