Alter Domus has its origins in a Big Four accountancy practice and has traditionally had strong accounting, financial reporting and audit liaison skills. The scope of our fully-integrated Corporate Services includes: company formation and liquidation, corporate secretarial services, daily administration and management, accounting and tax compliance. We also provide independent directors for the companies we administer. Key factors to our success include a single client relationship management structure across jurisdictions, experienced local operational teams and a globally integrated IT system.
The main strength of our service model is that the client engagement team is involved in all tax, accounting and legal aspects of the company it manages and administers. These dedicated teams coordinate the resources that are part of their assignment so that our clients always have a central point of contact for any request. In the case of specific requests, such as consolidation under IFRS or US or UK GAAP, the client teams ensure seamless coordination with our internal experts. With every new engagement an Alter Domus Director is assigned to take overall responsibility for the client relationship, service delivery and quality standards. The Alter Domus Director ensures that an appropriate team is put in place to manage and administer client affairs on a day-to-day basis. An Alter Domus Manager is assigned to be the client’s direct contact for any queries concerning accounting, tax and corporate legal matters.
At Alter Domus our clients can rest assured that the latest technology solutions are employed to ensure efficient operations and safe and streamlined availability of corporate information:
All documents for the companies we administer are scanned, indexed and stored on our proprietary document management system. In day-to-day operations we have increased efficiency and accuracy by only working with digital copies and leaving the original documents safely archived. All of our clients’ company documents on our document management system are accessible by our clients through secure web access, allowing relevant information to be accessed by our client’s internal finance or operation teams and be easily shared among approved parties, including auditors and legal advisors.
Prepare group consolidated financial statements in accordance with local GAAP, US GAAP or the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)
