Accounting and Reporting

Helping you bridge the gap to high quality financial reporting

Private and public investors alike are becoming more sophisticated in their decision-making processes, with increasing expectations for enterprises to deliver high-quality financial reporting, so they can make better-informed decisions. To address this, various regulatory bodies have emphasized the critical application of accounting principles to lessen the degree of subjectivity and enhance disclosure requirements for better clarity for users and stakeholders.

Our team has extensive experience in various industries, including energy, healthcare, manufacturing, technology, and more. We use our industry knowledge and technical expertise to give clients the insights they need to make informed transaction decisions.

We are here to assist your team in adopting various accounting guidance and interpretations with supporting, audit-ready documentation to help alleviate additional stressors in your accounting functions and to address increasing investors’ expectations over high-caliber financial accounting and reporting.

Accounting changes

There has been a notable evolution in accounting standards in recent years, marked by substantial changes in revenue recognition, lease accounting, and credit loss models. This trajectory is expected to persist as standard-setters endeavor to align legacy standards with contemporary practices.

Additionally, regulatory bodies like the SEC have taken proactive measures to provide clarity on previously ambiguous accounting matters, aiming to enhance protection for public investors. This heightened scrutiny has prompted restatements of historical financial statements for certain entities.

Our team is equipped with the technical knowledge and expertise needed to help companies navigate these situations. The following are some of the areas of accounting that we have helped companies on:

  • Revenue recognition
  • Lease accounting
  • CECL implementation
