Our experience in ascertaining the facts quickly during a corporate financial review and presenting them in a comprehensible and relevant way is peerless. We have completed reviews in the region of €30 billion for banks and for clients entering NAMA. When necessary, we extend the reviews into investigations. In one particular case, we went on to discover probably the largest corporate fraud in Ireland to-date.
In preparing company valuations and estimates of the value of a client’s interest in a business, we ensure our clients maximise their return on investment. Company valuations can be required in many situations, including management buyouts, shareholder disputes, or divorce proceedings involving a company owner.
We are experienced in investigating target companies on behalf of acquiring companies and often work with the legal teams involved to ensure the share purchase agreement is correctly drafted. We also assist our clients whose businesses are being acquired. This involves meeting the investigative due diligence team acting for the acquiring company, to ensure all their queries are addressed.
With our knowledge of auditing, personal forensic accounting, taxation, company law and banking, we’re well-placed to deliver focused investigations. We have the forensic skills to identify undeclared assets and income, and the credibility to give clear advice to legal advisors. We deliver concise reports that have been well received by legal advisors, law enforcement agencies and judges.
Our expert team has a breadth of experience working with legal advisors, insolvency experts and businesses to deliver clear and concise accountant’s reports for court proceedings. We understand the examinership process and are familiar with the demanding deadlines involved.
Internal Auditing is an independent, objective, assurance activity designed to add value and improve a company’s operations. It helps improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes. Our team is experienced in documenting and testing key internal control systems and reporting in a clear and constructive manner and making recommendations to help improve weaknesses in systems.
When corporate records contain conflicts of information and significant differences of facts, we can investigate the facts, outline the summary position and recommend how our clients should resolve the issues found.
We have extensive experience dealing with Revenue audits for both individual and corporate taxpayers across a range of business sectors. Our partner in charge of this service is an ex-Inspector of Taxes. Before any Revenue audit, we proactively seek to identify tax risks for our clients. Then once our clients receive a Revenue audit letter, we carry out a complete review of their affairs. During the audit, we manage all communication with Revenue and negotiate any tax issues that arise. Our team has actively managed hundreds of Revenue Audits and have the experience to deliver the best outcome for our clients.
