Finance Controllership

More often than not, companies lack a dedicated finance controller or a CFO. This could be on account of various reasons, such as setting up a business in a new location (leaving no time to focus on the business’ financial aspects), or attrition of key employees and senior management, or maybe an evolving accounting and compliance landscape creating a dearth for skilled financial management.

Our dedicated team helps you ensure continued reporting and compliance by handling your daily F&A activities. We handle the entire range of F&A services, including accounting & bookkeeping, banking support, audit closure support, representing the F&A function to the board of directors or other parties, financial decision-making, compliance & regulatory filing, finance process optimization, and internal control review.

Health Check/Clean-up of Books

Inefficient practices adopted by the F&A staff, over time, leads to disordered books. This undermines the reliability of financial statements and leads to non-compliance with existing laws.

Our team can help you perform a comprehensive health check of your books and clean up your records. A typical book clean-up procedure can include in-depth review of books, inter-company reconciliations, compliance checks, fixed asset verification, and other tasks.

Financial Statements Closure & Audit support

The modern-day enterprise is finding it increasingly difficult to handle audits and auditors. These difficulties may stem from either the employees’ lack of expertise in managing audits or the continually expanding regulations.

Deeply rooted in the assurance domain, our team can help you manage auditors professionally, complete audits in time, and minimize audit qualifications. Audit support typically involves preparing financial statements in accordance with applicable GAAP (IFRS, Ind AS, US GAAP, or Indian GAAP), liaising with auditors, preparing audit schedules, advising on audit remarks or qualifications, and representation to the board of directors or audit committee.

IFRS Transition

MNCs are increasingly transitioning towards IFRS from other GAAPs. This shift requires these businesses to be circumspect of many aspects which may fall beyond the purview of the finance function.

We can guide you through this transition by analyzing the impact of the convergence, supporting the decisions made on accounting policy choices, preparing financial statements (including the opening balance sheet), implementing new reporting processes, and making changes to the ERP.

ERP Implementation Support

Implementing new ERP in the existing environment or modifying the existing ERP can be a challenging task for established entities. Major obstacles in this process include a lack of expertise or discrepancies in the requirements framed for the ERP consultants.

We can help you select an ERP in accordance with your business requirements, identify business needs for the ERP technical consultant, list finance and compliance requirements, support data migration, perform user acceptance testing, ensure smooth go-live, conduct post-implementation review, and also provide hyper care and employee training.
