The Firm offers the following lines of service, namely:1. Audit and Assurance
We are committed to deliver quality audit services by understanding our clients’ businesses, needs and strategies. We aim to go beyond mere compliance with the statutory requirements but instead to provide value added services in the form of recommendations to improve our clients’ businesses through proper internal control as part of our auditing methodology and the provision of practical solutions to significant business challenges.
Our professional team is trained to conduct comprehensive due diligence assignments that constitute a pivotal part of any acquisition or merger transactions. Apart from satisfying regulatory requirement, our due diligence process will provide our clients a set of comprehensive financial information that will give a reliable snap-shot of a transaction (or series of transactions) at a specific time frame depending on the reporting framework required.It is a norm for creditors, bankers and other financial intermediaries to request for due diligence exercises when processing applications for loans and other corporate restructuring exercises. We have since established ourselves in this area.
We offer independent financial review services for today’s demanding business management that will serve as a firm basis for decision making and in specific circumstances, to assist management to establish practical recovery options and plans.
2. Tax Consulting
Our taxation services are designed to help clients to tap into today’s competitive business as well as fiscal environment through effective tax planning and maximization of tax incentives while maintaining regulatory compliance. We offer a whole range of professional tax services as listed below:
Corporate Tax Compliance
Our taxation services department is led by a team of experienced professionals striving to assist our clients in the area of tax compliance. Our staff is committed to continuous professional development so they are well equipped to convey to our clients the latest tax knowledge when preparing various tax returns to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).
Corporate Tax Planning
It is important that companies are aware of the various potential tax benefits made available by the government and the availability of tax incentives. We aim to excel in the area of tax planning to minimize the cost of doing business and therefore, optimizing business competencies as well as efficiencies.
Tax Assistance in BIR Investigation
We understand what our Clients have to go through when a company receives assessment notice from the BIR and hence can provide support and assist the clients in dealing with the issues raised in the process. We also take directives from clients to negotiate the settlement with the government over these tax deficiency investigations. This will lead to the issuance of a composite assessment in most instances.
3. Business Advisory Services
Registering as a local Corporation or a Branch Office of a Foreign Corporation with the local Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is an important process of a business cycle. We are able to provide such services due to our firm understanding and hands on approach with regulatory agencies, including Amendments of Articles of Incorporation and By Laws, Applications for Increase or Decrease in Capital Stock, Corporate Mergers and Acquisitions, Corporate Dissolution and Liquidation, among others.
One of the corporate buzzwords of today is business re-engineering. It compels managers to look at their business operations to ensure that the operations contribute towards achieving the company’s broader strategy. In the event that it doesn’t, a restructuring process is usually undertaken. In other cases, corporate restructuring is also undertaken to “unlock” value in assets of significance. Through our affiliate, CAS International, a comprehensive service of this nature is available that blends our management’s broad commercial exposure with an acute understanding of the present tax regime, an area that is normally neglected during the restructuring process.
Business Valuation and Investment Appraisals
Valuation of business is the core in any acquisition or merger initiatives. We provide expert services for vendors and acquirers in these complex exercises.
