Tax Accounting/Risk Advisory
Our Tax Accounting/Risk Advisory support falls into the following areas:
- Accounting for income taxes - Our accounting for income taxes support can reduce potential review comments by your external auditor on accounting for income tax matters, allowing for more timely financial statement closings.
