Business Consulting

Financial Advisory Services

 

Whether it’s growing sales, cutting costs, or responding to market trends, managing complexity is a challenge every business faces. But when that complexity extends to accounting and financial reporting, the stakes are too high to go it alone. Financing arrangements, share-based compensation, business combinations, and changing accounting standards require more specialized skills than most internal accountants offer. This is where EKS&H can help. 

Many of our clients view our technical accounting professionals as an on-call extension of their teams. We have the experience, resources, and capabilities to handle a wide variety of issues and customize our services to deliver exactly the support your organization requires. We work closely with our experienced industry leads and tax and valuation specialists to determine the most appropriate outcome for each situation.

Practical Technical Accounting Support

  1. Understand form and substance: We explore the business developments fully, including review of applicable documentation, existing policies, underlying economics, and the management perspective.
  2. Explore preliminary recommendations: We identify applicable research and conduct analysis to understand relevant implications for the company’s unique circumstances.
  3. Evaluate consequences: We work closely with your team, auditors, and key stakeholders to support management and bring technical analysis and resources to the table.
  4. Document policies and processes: Custom presentation and/or documentation of findings is scaled according to need of intended users.
Deliverables we can assist with include comment letter responses; accounting standard implementation; memos (whitepapers); and audit support, including drafting of financial statements.
