Risk management, strategy and operations
We help treasurers identify and quantify their exposure to financial risks, determine appropriate risk management strategies and policies, and help quantify the economic implications of specific treasury transactions. We also help the treasury function itself run more efficiently.
Governance and controls
We help meet increasing demand for efficient treasury solutions around processes, risks and controls, by regularly reviewing or creating internal audits of treasury controls. In doing so we give clients confidence they’ve got the oversight they need to meet all necessary external audit requirements in our ever-more scrutinised regulatory environment.
Accounting rule changes can have significant impact on the reporting of balance sheets and profit and loss. We provide careful research and impact analysis (including financial statement and accounting policy reviews), to help clients understand the impact of their capital structure or financial risk exposures. If needed, we help businesses re-think their hedging strategies and the accounting implications they entail. We devise workable future strategies and investigate why any previous failures might have happened.
Of particular relevance to corporate treasury departments is that amongst the main targets of the BEPS Action Plan is the prevention of tax base erosion through interest deductions and other (commonly used) cross-border financing structures. There is no doubt that treasury operations of several MNCs will be significantly impacted by the OECD BEPS action plan.
As technological change continues unabated, optimising efficiency and control in the treasury function through automation is key. Deloitte helps businesses rationalise their digital platforms to ensure their treasury technology is 'future-proofed'. We also work with modelling specialists to deliver bespoke solutions for risk identification, derivative valuations and hedge accounting.
Our Corporate Treasury Assurance team comprises audit and advisory specialists, including qualified Treasurers, Chartered Accountants, ACT Associates and Members, as well as CFA Charterholders and Treasury Consultants. They each have extensive experience researching the implications of accounting changes, and advising and assisting Corporate Treasury clients with impact analysis, accounting reviews and hedging strategies.
