Key Facts

By their nature, Tax and Business Advisory activities can vary in both size and complexity and have a number of fundamental elements that need ongoing management and alignment to ensure that Client requirements, and internal profit levels are met.

The aim of this initiative was to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Tax and Business Advisory function.

The Partners of the business had a specific focus on improving compliance activity profitability and reducing the level of rework.

There was a limited time window available so the project needed to be completed within one month.

We used the realising success® platform to provide a systematic and reliable way of modelling business processes and capturing information.

Models were created to define and communicate how the business delivers and creates value for its clients and to clearly identify client/activity profitability.

Reviewing and refining specific performance measures provided a foundation for continuous improvement.
