Tax

Is your business truly tax efficient?

 
Every day – somewhere in the world – tax regulations, rules and treaties change. Strategies that reduced taxes yesterday may not work today. New opportunities to save money could be missed – especially as you enter new markets. The talented tax staff in your organization might not have time to keep up with each nuance. Your current tax advisor may think your company is too small for personal attention – or your advisor may be too small to serve you.
Successful companies consider tax implications before they make business decisions, so they do not pay more than their legal obligation. This makes international tax compliance, consulting, and structuring a crucial element in your global strategy.


Advisory

Are you making the best decision for your company’s future?
 
Many acquisitions fail to live up to expectations. The reasons range from poor deal structure, poor strategic fit, failure to identify problems with the quality of earnings, overly optimistic estimates of synergies, to lack of an integration plan.
Evaluating a company in another country compounds these risks. You are dealing with a different language and cultural barriers; different business ethics, legal systems, filing regulations, and accounting principles; transfer pricing that affects taxation – and often government involvement.
But international deals often provide the best growth opportunities. They can offer improved returns from economies of scale, new target markets for existing products/services, access to commodity materials, and a hedge against seasonality.
Even savvy managements and private equity investors cannot know everything they should to make a deal successful, so they need an experienced international advisor.


 

Risk Consulting

Are you meeting or exceeding today’s elevated standards for risk management?  

As an international business, you manage a challenging array of risks on multiple fronts: strategic, operations, compliance, and reporting. Today’s stakeholders – including shareholders, customers, and employees – expect high standards.

While cultures and customs vary, the language of identifying and monitoring risks is consistent in leading boardrooms and management suites throughout the world. Effective and consistent risk management gives you and your employees the confidence to focus on achieving your organization’s key business objectives.

Along with every risk comes opportunity. Therefore, leading organizations carefully assess and evaluate their portfolio of risks and allocate appropriate resources to identify and manage their key risks more effectively than competitors do. For such organizations, having an effective risk management function is now an essential management discipline.

We value both developed and vacant plots of land.

We establish the possible future market value for properties that are not yet in existence, but which will be constructed or repaired.

We value investments made by the users of property. This sphere of valuation may be considered to be our company’s specialism, as we have developed a methodology for valuing investments based on the provisions of the Azerbaijan Civil Code.

We perform analysis of market data for various types of property.
