Acquisition accounting assistance

Helping you put the pieces of the puzzle together

Acquisition accounting assistance (AAA) is typically needed in the transaction execution and integration stages of a transaction.


Failure to fully consider the impact of the AAA throughout the due diligence and integration stages may result in:

  • Unexpected earnings charges or adjustments to
  • Assets or liabilities not previously disclosed to board committees and/or the market
  • Inability to fully capitalise on available tax benefits
  • An incomplete data set from which to appropriately price the transaction
  • Difficulties in managing the requirements of internal and external stakeholders including shareholders, management, auditors and regulators
  • Execution and reporting issues, including unforseen integration costs

Additionally, a number of specific issues affecting the various parts of the AAA puzzle - accounting, valuation, tax/legal, project management and integration – need to be considered and resolved.
