Financial Reporting Advisory

Specialists in financial reporting standards (IFRS®, NZ IFRS, IPSAS®, PBE IPSAS, CAANZ SPFR)

BDO’s Financial Reporting Advisory department are a team of financial and corporate reporting specialists that assist entities with the analysis and documentation of complex transactions against the requirements of the applicable financial reporting standards (including NZ IFRS, and PBE IPSAS). 

The team have assisted private and listed entities operating in a diverse range of industries, and have undertaken projects including transitioning into new reporting frameworks (including those applying NZ IFRS, and PBE IPSAS), analysing complex transactions (including employee share schemes, convertible loans, revenue recognition, and business acquisitions), and preparation for IPO and direct listings.

With experience in both professional services and corporate environments, the team is able to deliver practical and pragmatic solutions for our clients, and assist in their discussions and communications with external auditors and regulators.

At its core, accounting is a tool that enables an organisation to tell its financial story.

For any business or organisation, the accuracy of its financial story is critical to a wide array of stakeholders, including management, auditors, financers, shareholders, potential investors, or even an organisation’s employees.

Accounting is like any other tool. From time-to-time and depending on what you’re up against, you might require extra know-how and precision to get the most accurate results.

We live and breathe accounting, we see its challenges, and we know how they need to be approached. We do this by providing specialised support and expertise across a variety of customised service offerings.

The Financial and ESG Reporting Advisory team leverages its extensive commercial and professional experience, and works closely with BDO’s Technical Accounting teams, both in New Zealand and across our global network.
