Accounting for innovation.

Innovation is essential to ensuring success in the technology industry.  And in an environment marked by shifting regulations and business models, sound fiscal practices and access to capital are more important than ever – whether companies are investing in research and development, acquisitions, new products, or overseas expansion.

Nourishing growth strategies.

Cleantech companies focused on renewables remain at the forefront of a rapidly changing energy landscape. Facing funding challenges, investment volatility, and competition from other energy alternatives, the sector nevertheless exhibits significant strength in R&D activity and innovative business models.

From start-ups seeking to commercialize a new idea to businesses expanding abroad, TMO’s cleantech industry professionals have the knowledge and experience necessary to help companies address the industry’s most pressing business concerns. And with a global network spanning more than 150 countries, TMO helps drive expansion beyond U.S. borders to address offshore opportunities. Additionally, going green offers significant tax benefits, and TMO’s tax practice has been able to successfully guide clients through the application process.

Seamless execution.

Consolidation, competition, and convergence with software and services elements are transforming the hardware industry, dramatically increasing the need to invest in new technologies and product offerings. Today’s customers expect hardware providers to offer products which provide integrated solutions and support services, and this sophisticated combination entails complex transactions and business arrangements. Additionally, the growing importance of reduced power consumption in data centers has led many companies to increase their investment in research and development.

TMO’s Technology and Life Sciences Practice brings tailored guidance on these and other issues facing the hardware industry by offering insightful perspective and advice. Our experienced professionals draw on deep industry experience to help our clients seamlessly execute and account for complex business arrangements. And by leveraging the resources of one of the world’s largest global networks, TMO helps businesses focus on achieving innovation in product design, effectively managing their supply chain, and navigating complex reporting requirements.

Changing business models, solid strategies.

Changing business models are reshaping the software industry. Perhaps most notably, many companies now choose to sell their software as a web service instead of or in addition to a traditional upfront licensing model. This translates to more predictable, recurring revenue, which can be seen as a significant benefit to investors. More broadly, as the continuous cycle of product development continues, software companies face a variety of financial and operational challenges, including increasingly complicated financial reporting rules, and tax regulations.

As the software industry innovates and evolves, we help our clients navigate the numerous financial and tax reporting complexities which result from these changes. Our professionals offer assurance, tax, risk advisory, and consulting services to software companies around the world, guiding clients – including enterprise, mobile, hosted, and web-based solution providers – through diverse issues. We also leverage our global network of thought leaders in order to provide our clients with key insights into industry trends.
