Entrepreneurs – Companies led by committed owners who also actively participate in the company’s development. The company can be strongly intertwined with the individual, both in identity and financially. Classic family entrepreneurs where success for the business is of utmost importance for the well-being of the family. Our services receive a naturally increased focus on the financial and tax connections between the company and the owner, as well as on smart routines and solutions for the company that have limited resources at their disposal.
Innovators – With the proximity to universities and research facilities in our local area, it is natural that brilliant new ideas become business opportunities, which become start-ups. In these companies our services often relate to ways to maintain financing and viability in the business, rules that need to be considered by the board and owners in order not to end up in personal financial risks. The company often faces a journey that requires planning and structure around growth, strength, staffing, capital raising and shareholder terms.
Companies with dispersed passive ownership – Typical features of these operations are that the individual owners are not obviously active in the company and their transparency is often limited regarding the information provided by the board and the managing director. These companies tend to be more white-collar-driven. The audit is not only about ensuring that the business is conducted correctly, but also about any individual owners being disadvantaged or the entire owner collective losing financial value through inadequate management. Our services often have an increased focus on formalized processes, compliance with regulations and governing documents. This sometimes also includes assignments such as constituted minority auditor or special examiner.
International companies and groups – The audits of these companies often differ in that the reporting of the companies’ financial data must be reported on a group level through consolidated financial statements. This place demands on the audit, in addition to the actual audit of the company’s results and position. Auditing often requires communication and reporting between the group auditor and subsidiary’s auditors. Reporting often takes place to several management levels. Our services often include issues relating to transfer pricing and tax implications in intra-group transactions, compliance with consolidated accounting rules and any deviations from the individual companies’ applied national accounting rules and special Swedish phenomena in accounting, such as group contributions and untaxed reserves. Company law issues are also brought up, not least liability issues for those individuals who have been appointed board members of the subsidiaries due to employment in the business.
