Meet the Adviser: BDO - Drop-In Clinic

-, BDO, 55 Baker Street, London, W1U 7EU

There are many difficulties facing a business as it looks to expand globally. As part of the MIBP program our partner BDO are offering all members the opportunity to attend a drop in session. BDO understand that not everyone has the time to attend a long seminar on tax or accounting but would like to be able to just call on an advisor when they have a burning/important question. The purpose of these sessions are to generally discuss any issues that you or your business are facing. From international tax issues to funding queries and general business guidance, these sessions are for you to ask any questions you would like. This is a great opportunity to talk to one of the leading professional advisors globally who can point you in the right direction. Each session will last 30 minutes and can be either face to face or over Skype. To schedule your session give them an email here

Meet the Advisor: KPMG - Third Party Assurance

, Central Working City, 4 Crown Place, London, EC2A 4BT

KPMG specialists are available to all MIBP members to understand how third party assurance reports can benefit you (e.g. SOC 1 / 2 / 3 reports(*), ISAE 3402 / SSAE 18, ISAE 3000 / AT 101, AAF 01/06, AAF 02/07, etc.). This is an area which is increasingly pertinent to a wide variety of outsourced service providers, particularly if you meet one of the following triggers:

· You are looking to expand to the US, or to highly regulated industries such as the Financial Services;

· You are managing a large amount of sensitive / personal / confidential / transactional data for your clients;

· You are handling client’s material financial processing (e.g. payments, payroll, claims, loans, deposits, etc.);

· You are increasingly required to demonstrate a strong control environment when tendering for business;

· You are an IT cloud outsourcing company (e.g. cloud hosting, cloud email, SaaS-based HR services); or

· You are a business where topics such as security, availability and privacy are increasingly important.

We have a proven, thorough and robust approach with an excellent track record of helping our clients in their assurance reporting needs, and are looking forward to meeting you to discuss yours to support your expansion plans.
