On-call Accounting Advisory Services

A holistic accounting approach tailored to your challenges

As the accounting world rapidly evolves, businesses are demanding more from CFOs, CAOs, controllers, and their teams. This is pushing accounting teams to be as agile and efficient as ever. Discover how our on-call accounting advisory team’s accounting guidance can help accounting and financial reporting departments handle today’s challenges and add organizational value.



The complex accounting world companies face

Preparing financial statements today is more complex and challenging than ever. Market downturns can increase demand for things like impairment analyses, evaluations of changes to financing arrangements, and even evaluations of whether companies can continue as going concerns. Market upswings may shift focus to things like acquisitions and IPOs. Meanwhile, companies are trying to keep up with the implementation of new accounting standards like ASC 606 and ASC 842.

Deloitte’s On-call Accounting Advisory professionals can help you confidently meet these challenges and more in an ever-changing financial reporting environment. An on-call accounting adviser with holistic accounting knowledge, a track record of making and defending accounting positions, and the ability to identify and address thorny issues early can help you deftly handle accounting challenges as they surface instead of scrambling to keep up. Likewise, teaming with an experienced accounting adviser who has helped others implement new standards can help prevent organizationwide disruption and provide clear disclosures regarding the expected impact of a new standard.
