Consulting & Advisory

EP provides a range of specialized services that can help your operations run smoothly during difficult decisions and issues. Effective consulting begins with taking the time to understand your circumstances and goals.  Once the issues are clearly identified, we can begin the solution process.

Our services often include analysis of your organization, benchmarking, strategic planning concepts, and succession planning.  We may be able to assist you in addressing a specific problem that needs to be resolved to allow you to progress.  As you grow, systems need to be modified, internal controls need to be evaluated and possibly changed, and a fraud risk assessment may be in order.  Whether you need someone for brainstorming or just a sounding board, we are here to help.

New Accounting Principles

Whether your organization is following FASB or GASB, we realize that implementing new accounting pronouncements requires a significant level of effort not only by the finance team.  Accounting changes that impact revenue recognition and measurement of assets and liabilities often lead to broader organizational and operational impact. EP’s experienced technical accounting professionals can help your organization understand, prepare for, and implement new accounting standards.

We provide assistance to your finance team by helping them develop an implementation plan, gather the information needed for the implementation, create a position paper, and proceed with the implementation.  We can provide training to the organization’s team members in order to maintain the implementation going forward.  In addition, we can assist in communicating with senior management, audit/finance committees, and boards of governance.
