What we do:
IaS performs or provides support to organizations with their complex accounting and financial reporting needs. The regulatory environment has become much more complex with many changes to IFRS requirements. Accounting standards are constantly changing making it much more challenging for organizations to ensure compliance.
IaS can evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of internal and SOX controls supporting financial reporting. Increasingly, the consequences of inaccurate financial reports is very severe in many jurisdictions.
We perform post general-ledger accounting and also provide support and assurance that financial statements are prepared in a professional manner before filing with tax authorities.
IaS provides accounting advice for major transactions, such as M&A, IPOs, restructuring, and sale and lease backs.
Auditor independence rules may limit the support, work and advice that your auditor can provide. With respect to the financial statement preparation process, IaS can fill the gap in a more economical way.
A familiarity threat exists if the auditor is either too familiar with employees, officers, and directors, or keeps a long-standing relationship with the client. This is a major issue for the industry and regulators and the capital markets are alive to this issue.
IaS has robust protocols to ensure that our professionals provide independent and insightful advisory services.
