Q-Concepts Advice

Q-Concepts Advice

We assist companies in understanding a diverse array of important (market) developments that influence every aspect of businesses and organisations. These are financial, economic and strategic topics. We can advise you on these developments, to help you fine-tune your organisational strategy. Our driven professionals are specialised in identifying business opportunities and risks and defining and attaining clear, concise business goals. Creativity and clear communication culminate in added value that exceeds regular consultancy.

Examples possible within the Q-Concepts Advice concept:

Risk management

  • Strategic, tactical and operational risks need to be controlled and we can support you with these control measures. We will always offer a pragmatic solution. Examples in this area include:
  • Identification, evaluation and prevention of risks through project management and/or periodic testing of internal control measures within frameworks such as (among others) Sarbanes-Oxley, SAS 70, Code Tabaksblat and COSO.
  • Designing or refining your risk management system.
  • Identification and evaluation of current and future business risks.

 

Internal control

By comprehending risks and calculating chances and (financial) impact, preventative measures can be taken that can limit potential negative consequences. As well as risk management in the broadest sense of the word, we also support organisations in establishing and testing an efficient and effective system of internal control measures. Examples of our activities in these areas include:

  • Advice relating to compliance with laws and regulations.
  • Effectiveness of the internal audit and risk management systems: operational audits, quality assurance and testing.
  • Evaluation of your existing risk management system.
  • Support with defining, documenting, evaluating and reporting risks.
  • Support with implementation of improved or new structures and with guiding your business: change management, process improvement, etc.

 

Tax advice

We can provide a broad range of advice services relating to taxes and legal issues. This includes advice on structuring your activities (such as in a holding company) and completing tax returns, especially income tax and corporation tax.

We provide services such as:

  • Complete optimisation of your tax structure
  • Corporate tax
  • Income tax
  • Tax on salaries and wages
  • VAT

 

Corporate Governance and Compliance

As a formidable entrepreneur, you are responsible for compliance with all current laws and regulations, including Sarbanes Oxley, Code Tabaksblat, IFRS, COSO, managing the risks in your organisation and relevant reporting.

Examples of our activities in this field include:

  • Advice relating to compliance of laws and regulations.
  • Quick Scan of compliance with (among others) Code Tabaksblat, Sarbanes-Oxley, IFRS and COSO Internal Control.
  • Support with compliance of laws and regulations.
  • Project management and/or periodic testing of internal control measures within the framework of (among others) Sarbanes-Oxley, Code Tabaksblat and COSO.
  • Initial fraud evaluation and prevention programs.
  • Design and implementation of codes of conduct for your employees and executive colleagues.

 

Information management

ICT contributes to the optimisation of business processes and realising business goals. By identifying, analysing and controlling risks in an ICT environment, you reduce the probability of damage or missed chances as a result of a failing ICT environment.

Examples of our advice provisions in this area include:

  • Support with and checking of the realisation of the financial reports and records from your ICT systems.
  • Evaluation of the efficiency and effectiveness of your information security policy.
  • ICT-project (cost) management.
  • Guidance through the process of selecting and implementing a new ICT system or the (re)development of a process and testing of the ICT measures implemented by you.
  • Process integration: the (re)development of business processes by implementing an integrated information system. The expansion or further optimisation of existing systems can strongly improve the management and operation of an organisation.
  • Advice on your internal audit procedures dealing with the ICT environment.
  • Testing of your ICT systems to ensure they correspond to legal requirements.
  • Testing your ICT systems in accordance with Sarbanes Oxley laws.
  • Advising on ICT investments.
