Our Services

Advisory

While some firms focus on the preparation of federal taxes and financial reports, FY offers a variety of complex advisory services. At FY, we acknowledge that the new and more stringent regulatory regimes around the globe are shifting the market demands and are stressing the need for more creative solutions. Our consulting team not only acts as your advisors but also submerses themselves in the workings of your own team. Alternatively, we can be your Advisory Board to support and foster your vision and generate solutions to internal and external hiccups that may interfere with your ability to compete and grow your business.

Leadership & Quality Advisory Service

A distinguishing characteristic of FY partners and managers is that we take the initiative to identify new business opportunities, assist clients in their globalization efforts, and take actions to prevent problems before they occur. In general, we look to constantly develop creative solutions to reach an organization’s objectives and goals. Our efforts go above and beyond our client’s expectations, by also seeking out opportunities to distinguish our client’s organization from the rest.

FY partners have an understanding of the global economy and how to overcome cultural differences that may arise. Our proven abilities to understand multi-jurisdictional issues have allowed us to be leaders in this area.

Entrepreneurial Support

Getting outside support can be a challenge, but having an esteemed relationship, built on trust and reliability of expertise, with your Advisor(s) is known to create superior returns. FY relates with your management team’s concerns. We can help you with training, minimizing risk, championing projects and initiatives to ensure successful results.

STRENGTHENING BUSINESS INTERNAL CONTROLS

CEOs and CFOs of Canadian public companies, excluding venture issuers, are required to certify on the design and the effectiveness of their company’s disclosure controls and procedures (DC&P), and their internal controls over financial reporting (ICFR). FY can work with your management team, board, and audit committee, and address ongoing issues occurring within your team and internal controls; and, together, we can assist your organization in defining proper internal controls that comply with public guidelines, and, when implemented, reduce your annual audit fees.

Business Succession Planning

It is quite common that family-owned businesses are managed by a single or by a few key family members, who have driven the company through different development phases. When the time comes for a new generation or team to take over the leadership role, a detailed succession plan needs to be established and implemented. We assist business owners and stockholders on drafting the appropriate family protocols, updating shareholders´ agreements, estimating shares fair market value, tax implications assessment, and a wide range of related services to support the transfer of control in the smoothest possible manner, with least possible business interruption.
