Tax Advisory Services
The Challenge: In today’s highly regulated and scrutinized environment, there’s a gap between auditors’ complicated tax reporting requirements and clients’ ability to provide audit-ready financial statements. In fact, almost 80 percent of restatements are in the area of tax reporting. That’s because tax reporting that simultaneously meets all regulatory requirements and arrives at optimal tax positions for the business requires a depth of professional knowledge and resources that most companies don’t possess and that audit firms are restricted from providing. New and evolving tax laws make this navigation even more problematic. In short, companies need outside help.
The Solution: Our Tax Advisory Services help companies resolve the full spectrum of their tax issues – accurate application of the latest accounting rules, technical accounting, tax risk management, timely and compliant tax filings, etc. – with the ultimate goal of facilitating the preparation of audit-ready financial statements that meet audit firms’ requirements.
The BGA Difference: When it comes to tax advisory services, the BGA difference isn’t just in the depth and breadth of our tax experts’ experience but in the bench that’s always available to support them and vice versa – what we call BlytheTeamSM.
