Accounting & Controlling

The accounting & controlling area at FAS AG offers you fast and efficient support thanks to a mentality that focuses on the goals and implementation while pursuing the work pragmatically with a hands-on approach. We give you an overview of everything thanks to our interface competence in all adjacent areas. In this area, we cover the subject areas of accounting, reporting, controlling and planning. The scope of our advisory services is always based on your needs and can be adjusted flexibly. We would be glad to handle selective coaching or relieve your team of the burden by undertaking the full outsourcing of the respective areas of responsibility.

Accounting

In the accounting area, our accounting advisory services focus on international accounting (particularly IFRS and US-GAAP), but also accounting in the area of the German Commercial Code (HGB). In addition, we have extensive experience in the area of IFRS/US-GAAP conversions, the development of practice-oriented accounting guidelines and manuals as well as the drafting of expert opinions and second opinions. 

Reporting

In the reporting area, we will advise you on all questions related to the preparation of financial statements and the optimization of related processes. This includes, for example, support for financial statements and assistance with audits, the preparation of consolidated financial statements in accordance with the German Commercial Code (HGB) or IFRS, the drawing-up of special balance sheets and the optimization of accounting and fast close. Our advisory portfolio is rounded out by special topics such as IPO readiness or assistance with audits by the German Financial Reporting Enforcement Panel and CSSF as well as support in the transposition of IFRS financial statements to the IASB taxonomy and in company-specific expansions of taxonomy (iXBRL). 

Controlling

Many companies today are seeing an unprecedented change in business models, technologies and markets. Internal controlling systems are therefore required to reflect these changes as efficiently and effectively as possible in order to make companies more transparent and controllable. We will support you with our expertise and innovative technologies to achieve the strategic and operational implementation of your controlling requirements. Our advisory spectrum ranges from the optimization of cost accounting and the development of effective controlling in project business to the harmonization of internal and external reporting or the development of effective reporting with clearly defined key performance indicators. However, we will also support you in the operational implementation of measures to optimize individual key performance indicators.

Planning

The planning and budgeting processes are usually the most complex and least efficient processes in a company. In this regard, the results in a dynamic business environment are usually outdated faster than you would think. Against this backdrop, the planning processes in the company should be further developed into a flexible and efficient controlling instrument that is oriented to the main drivers of the business model, from strategic orientation to operational implementation. In terms of system technology, the planning instrument must be designed flexibly and intelligently enough so that changes and new trends can be taken into account at any time and different scenarios can be played through. FAS AG will support you in the optimization of these processes, the methodological structuring and the selection and implementation of intelligent planning and budgeting solutions.

Treasury

Core task of a Corporate Treasury function is to ensure solvency and to create transparency regarding the availability of liquidity. The basic prerequisite for this is adequate cash and liquidity management, accompanied by a clear banking strategy. We support you to standardize the processes regarding payment transactions or in financial risk management (commodity-/interest-/currency risk), to make them more efficient and thus to optimize them. Support in the selection of suitable treasury IT tools such as treasury management systems or trading platforms is one component of active fraud prevention. Benefit from our decades of experience when it comes to implementing a new treasury function, be it from internal motivation or within the framework of cave outs or joint ventures. Use us as a neutral, auditors indipendent sparring partner to identify the improvement potential of your processes or guidelines. Interdisciplinary thinking and acting, keeping the big picture in mind is our strength. In this way, we contribute to increasing control and transparency in your organization.
