Solving accounting issues in your business

Operating a business can bring up a variety of accounting issues. Whatever challenge you are facing, we have the expertise and experience to support you.

The changing accounting landscape

The accounting landscape is continually changing.

These changes can come from the introduction of new accounting standards, or transaction activity in your business. You may need to consider the accounting impact of transactions on your financial statements.

We can help you understand the implications of any transaction that occurs during the financial year across multiple GAAPs. These include, amongst others, IFRS, FRS 101, FRS 102 and US GAAP.

Our specialists have experience across all industry groups and provide solutions to your most complex problems.

Accounting guidance for group restructuring

Ongoing changes to national and international tax mean that companies must review their group and corporate structures to ensure they meet business needs.

These reviews often result in the need to transfer value in and out of legal entities and, in some cases, between countries. We provide support and solutions with these transactions, including group reorganisations, restructurings, acquisitions, divestments, distributable reserves guidance and summary approval procedures.

Our strength is the wealth of experience we have in helping our clients manage complexity. We identify, manage and resolve key judgements relating to the implementation of these transactions, including accounting for distributable profits.

Global compliance for financial statements

Across the globe the regulatory compliance landscape and environment is changing. That presents increased risk for multinationals when meeting their compliance obligations.

We are aware of the challenges faced by new entrants into the Irish market. Our teams assist organisations with their regulatory compliance requirements, such as the client assets regime or capital adequacy.

Helping you solve your accounting and financial reporting challenges

As you face a changing accounting landscape and greater scrutiny than ever before, we can help you meet your challenges and preserve the value of your business.

Accounting advisory services

Rather than seeing accounting and regulatory changes as a burden, we can help you understand and implement them, and strengthen your organisation.

Our team of accounting experts can help you work through and solve your accounting challenges. That includes:

  • Supporting transitions from one accounting framework to another
  • Providing accounting advice for complicated transactions
  • Ensuring you and your staff are up to date and trained to meet your accounting responsibilities

Supporting your structures

Boards are under increasing pressure to ensure group and corporate structures meet their business needs. This is driven by a desire to execute strategic initiatives, such as mergers and acquisitions and other deals. It is also to ensure these structures are efficient when it comes to repatriation of value to shareholders. This is particularly relevant in today's dynamic environment, with changes to tax legislation and events such as Brexit shifting priorities.

Our key strength is the wealth of experience we have in helping our clients manage these complex events. We help management identify, manage and resolve key judgements relating to the implementation of business plans including group reorganisations, distributions and mergers to address the identified financial reporting and distributable profits risks as a result of these events.

We also provide accounting and financial reporting support and solutions in relation to these transactions.

Financial statements and global compliance

We can help you to take care of your compliance obligations. We work with you to prepare financial statements and standardise and streamline the process through our technology solutions.

Our Global Compliance Services team delivers a streamlined, centrally-managed statutory financial statement (SFS) compliance process. This includes managing the coordination of the preparation of financial statements and other compliance requirements across your, in Ireland and abroad.

Our service offering involves working with network firms to ensure timely and efficient delivery of key milestones throughout the SFS process. This is critically important in a world of ever-evolving complex compliance. Our work supports you to:

  • more efficiently meet your compliance requirements;
  • access experienced accounts preparation specialists;
  • reduce the risk of incurring late filing fees;
  • augment your finance function efficiently and effectively; and
  • focus more on your core business activities
