Technical Accounting

Technology and globalization have dramatically impacted the nature of commercial transactions. Today’s small and mid-sized companies are especially challenged to keep pace with the regulatory and reporting changes required of them.

Transaction accounting

Wherever you are in your business life cycle — startup, growth, mature, or rebrand phase — you may need occasional assistance with complicated accounting projects. This is especially true if you need additional financing or feel pressure from investors for an exit. These typically lead to internal conversations around an initial public offering (IPO), which involve more rigorous audits.
