I write this entry deep in the heart of tax season with my head buried in 1040’s and 1120’s. That doesn’t change the fact that we provide not only tax compliance services, but other services as well. I deem all of the services we provide important, but Assurance and Advisory Services are on the top tier of that list. But what does this particular service entail?
When a tax return or financial statement is prepared, it is done so from historical information. Assurance and Advisory Services are current and forward thinking. They help plan for a current need or a future plan. These services include but are not limited to:
- Entity selection and restructuring
- Accounting software selection, implementation, and support
- Business valuations
- Financial projections and forecasts
- Debt and finances advising
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Transaction structuring and negotiations
- Business succession
