How We Can Help
The breadth and depth of our expertise allows us to offer a broad range of services.
We are surprisingly innovative for accountants. We find this to be a great fit for tech companies, who want to use the latest technology in all facets of the business.
In the highly regulated world of financial services, quality and timeliness of information are paramount. You need reliable advisors who use reliable systems.
For a growing retail business, integrating operations with finance can be a real challenge. We enjoy solving these problems for our clients.
We had a situation where Marcum were our group PCAOB auditors based out of New York and KPMG were our UK auditors. This left us in a painful situation where all of our numbers, regardless if they were the same under different GAAP regimes, were being audited twice. As well as incurring unnecessary cost, this meant complete inefficiency from the standpoint of my team’s time. I approached Marcum to come up with a better solution and together with Ecovis they have nailed the brief. Other than GAAP differences, all substantive work only takes place once as the UK team leverages the work of the US team. Regarding these GAAP differences and local UK reporting, where more questions are naturally needed from the UK team, I have found Ecovis’ questions very relevant and their approach sensible and pragmatic.
