Support with all accounting and financial reporting issues

Corporate accounting and financial reporting are constantly facing new challenges from legislators, regulators and boards. New accounting standards and regulations have to be understood and implemented in companies. Some accounting topics are so complex that many companies find it difficult to handle them without external support. This applies, for example, when measures are planned that have a significant impact on the net assets, financial position and results of operations. Last but not least, the digitalization of finance is playing an increasingly important role.

The challenge

  • Are you faced with the task of introducing new standards and need to make system and process adjustments alongside?
  • Do you have questions about complex accounting issues, such as tax accounting, revenue recognition and group accounting?
  • Do you want to take a targeted approach to your external presentation in financial reporting and to your key performance indicators?
  • Are you striving to optimize and digitalize your accounting system and want to make greater use of digital solutions?

These examples show: The demands on external and internal reporting are increasing. So is the pressure to produce financial statement information in ever shorter timeframes and to meet the growing expectations and requirements of external and internal stakeholders for standardized reporting. But accounting issues also frequently arise in the course of transactions.
