Areas of expertise

We are committed to building long-term relationships with our partners and will always go the extra mile to ensure their success. Our collaborative approach ensures that we engage with our clients and take on their challenges as our own, working together to drive progress and achieve common goals.

Accounting

Accounting is an essential aspect of any business as it provides a framework for financial management and informed decision-making. Its importance lies in the ability to provide a clear picture of a company’s financial health and meeting regulatory requirements.

Without accurate accounting data, it becomes challenging to create financial reports, develop budgets, or forecast future financial performance. This is particularly true in larger organizations, where data input errors can quickly compound and lead to significant inaccuracies in financial reporting.

Our services include design and implementation of effective processes, building a business-supporting data model as well as interim assistance for your team if you need plug and play operational resources within:

  • Accounts payable processing
  • Accounts receivable management
  • Balance sheet reconciliations
  • Bank reconciliations
  • Data analysis and clean-up projects

Controlling

Financial controlling is a critical function for companies to manage their financial performance and make informed decisions. Effective financial controlling involves not only monitoring financial data, but also ensuring accurate and timely financial reporting, complying with regulatory requirements, and understanding relevant accounting practices.

Financial controllers play a vital role in providing oversight and management of their client’s data. They safeguard the financial integrity of a business while building trust with stakeholders.

At Atlab, we understand the challenges that companies may face in maintaining an effective financial controlling process, especially during periods of high workload or resource constraints. We can help you strengthen your financial controlling process and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements – while also meeting your reporting deadlines.

An example of roles we can occupy would be:

  • Financial controller
  • Finance Manager
  • Financial reporting specialist

Financial Planning and Analysis

FP&A is a crucial process within finance as it enables companies to make informed decisions about their future financial performance. By providing insights into the company’s financial position and identifying areas of opportunity and risk, FP&A helps companies to develop effective strategies, allocate resources efficiently, and achieve their financial goals.

In Atlab, we have experienced consultants with a long history of working with FP&A and can assist you in areas such as:

  • Financial Modeling: Developing accurate and reliable financial models that can be used to analyze and predict your financial performance
  • Budgeting: Providing guidance on how to develop realistic budgets that align with your company’s overall strategy.
  • Forecasting: Predicting future financial performance by using historical data and market trends
  • Financial Analysis: Using advanced tools and techniques to identify trends, deviations, and opportunities in your company’s financial performance

ERP / Digital transformation

Businesses are becoming more and more dependent on digital instruments to ensure critical infrastructure, a healthy and inspiring work environment and insight into the business operation and finances.

We provide an end-to-end service focusing on the entire project rather than a corner of the solution. We are your team and righthand to ensure the organization drives safely thru any change.

Risk and Compliance

Effective risk management and compliance programs help companies identify and manage risks proactively, reduce the risk of financial reporting errors, and enhance their reputation with stakeholders.

One of the most well-known regulations related to risk and compliance is the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, also known as SOX 404. Compliance with SOX 404 can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive process, but it is essential for companies that want to maintain the trust of their stakeholders.

We provide risk and compliance advisory services to help companies design, implement, test and document effective internal controls that meet regulatory requirements and align with their business goals.

Business partnering

Business partnering in finance is a vital function that bridges the gap between finance and the core business. By working closely with other departments, Business Partners gain a deeper understanding of the business operations and provide insights that foster informed decisions.

This involves collaborating with stakeholders across the organization to identify opportunities for growth, optimize processes, and drive value creation. With Finance as a strategic partner, businesses can gain a competitive advantage by leveraging financial expertise to support business objectives and drive growth.

At Atlab, we offer business partnering as a service to help companies build effective partnerships between finance and other departments and run successful transformation projects.
