You realise the importance of working with the right accounting advisors to supplement your internal resources and capabilities to provide the depth of experience necessary to address accounting issues as they arise. We can assist management to understand the implications of the accounting issues and provide explanations to stakeholders.
We collaborate with you to provide advice on deal structuring, review transaction agreements and provide assistance to prepare information memorandum and handholding for the transaction.
Our responsibility as statutory auditors is to express our opinion on whether the financial statements are properly drawn up in accordance with the provision of the Companies Act and Singapore Financial Reporting Standards. Our approach to audit is to be effective and efficient.
As tax compliance becomes more complex and rigorous in Singapore, we keep our clients updated with Singapore tax regulations and any changes that may affect their businesses. We also communicate with IRAS regarding the companies’ tax affairs with a view in reaching an agreement and finalisation for each year of assessment.
