    ‘Why is it that results are often so different from forecasts?
    There must be a better way to go about it!’

Management Accounting

Whether you are starting up a company, or running a family business or a group of companies, your key concern is steering and guiding your ship resolutely towards your ultimate destination. And of course this can’t be done without accurate input for all policy aspects of your organisation because otherwise you could easily get blown entirely off course, take unnecessary risks or waste fuel. In other words, there’s a real risk of losing profits.

Measuring and predicting the performance of just one domain isn’t all that difficult, but what is difficult is determining the short, medium and long-term effects of all sub-domains collectively, in an integrated manner and without completely missing the mark. The financial, tax and legal experts at BDO - we are truly a multidisciplinary team - have developed a number of tools and instruments that allow us to gain a clear insight into the economic reality and evolution of your company or group. We can of course do this at both the national and international level.

Accurate and proactive

With those accurate analyses, reports and figures to hand you will be in a much stronger position in strategic negotiations with, for example, banks or potential takeover candidates. On top of this, they can also come in handy when defending your strategy before the works council.

Transparent information makes it easier to identify bottlenecks - don’t kid yourself, your company has them - and to work out an improvement plan together with your management. Why wouldn’t you appeal to our expertise for this? Remember: our worldwide experience allows us to provide you with a team of specialists in every field. It’s up to you to choose the expertise you need: pragmatic and tailored to your company and the market in which you operate. Because after all, theory and pretty words alone won’t help you move forward, but the concrete implementation of models, process improvements and related aspects will. Not only that, you can use this to proactively anticipate the market of tomorrow.
