Transitioning services

Give yourself the benefit of time and perspective to determine which outcome is right for you.

Whether you plan to sell your business, launch an IPO or shift leadership to the next...

Succession planning

When it comes to running a business, the toughest decisions can be around succession. As an owner-manager, you want to make the right choices, for your business – and your family. Starting early is critical for a smooth transition. By making decisions and developing transition timelines, you can avoid conflict and build the support and buy-in your successor will need.

KPMG Enterprise professionals can help you manage the sensitivities that come with succession and provide confidential advice on the implications of any decisions your family might make. When the time comes, we can also help your successor take on his or her new role.

Selling your business

Deciding to sell your business can be difficult. You’ve put your life into your work and want to get the value you deserve. But realizing value can be challenging. How can you make your organization attractive and find the right buyer?

KPMG Enterprise advisers understand how important this decision is and can help you get the most out of the process. KPMG Enterprise can help define your expectations and identify and prioritize potential buyers. Our professionals can also help you make sure that your business is in shape for a sale, evaluate offers, manage due diligence procedures and supervise the transaction.

You’ve spent years building your business. Let us help you get the most out of selling it.

Going public

Taking your company public is an exciting process. It brings with it prestige and higher visibility in the market. At the same time, going public brings new risks, including complex accounting and reporting requirements and the need to manage new stakeholders – like the board and your shareholders.

To get the most reward, you need to be well informed and well prepared. KPMG Enterprise advisers can work with you to decide whether going public is the right choice for your business. If you go forward, we can help you manage the IPO process and begin to operate in the public company environment.

M&A tax

Every transaction has tax implications. Whether you’re contemplating an acquisition, a merger, or restructuring – understanding the relevant tax issues will let you take advantage of tax opportunities while reducing your transaction risks. If you’re considering an M&A outside your home jurisdiction, getting specialized tax advice can help you ensure your deal is commercially viable.

KPMG Enterprise firms’ advisers can work with you to understand the tax implications of your potential deals and help you to structure transactions in ways that are tax-efficient. No matter where you are in the deals lifecycle, KPMG Enterprise can help you determine the best tax structures to support your endeavors.

Payroll

Companies outsource their payroll functions - delegating payroll administration to a third party with proven expertise in payroll processes - to get more accurate, timely and confidential systems which are compliant with local regulations and laws and based on the latest technology. Companies can then concentrate on their core business activities, saving time and enabling them to focus on what really matters to them. Payroll processing is an important, sensitive and time consuming activity. Errors or delays impact employee morale and can affect organizational performance.

We can:

  • Process payrolls, including issuing pay slips and e-pay slips
  • Administer employee benefits 
  • Ensure all payments are aligned with worker protection schemes (WPS)
  • Manage employee reimbursements and travel expenses
  • Update leave balances, including accrued and consumed leave
  • Manage bonus, overtime and incentive payments
  • Alert staff on expiry of passports, visas and other key documents

Bookkeeping

We have invested in a new, cloud-based bookkeeping platform which gives clients better direct access to a number of reports. This new platform also allows:

  • Accounting for monthly invoices and transactions
  • Producing monthly reports
  • Preparing payments for online banking systems

For those unable to embrace cloud technology, we can also store data on our own dedicated, secure internal servers.

MIS and KPI dashboards

We leverage leading edge proprietary tools and our experience gained from working with prominent companies in the UAE for more than forty years to develop customized dashboards that are designed according to client needs.

Our seasoned professionals consolidate large amounts of company financial data onto dashboards - including charts and current status reports (often using RAG traffic lights) - so that key decision makers can easily understand critical information. Our dashboards allow senior management to make the important decisions needed to drive the business forward - as well as to see - and therefore deal with - issues before they become significant problems.

Process and procedural gap analysis

Our experienced professionals can review processes and procedures for single departments or for an entire company. We make recommendations aligned with industry-specific leading practice for departments including:

  • HR
  • Sales
  • Procurement
  • Operations
  • Finance

Temporary secondments

We help clients augment their existing management and technical resources by seconding experienced KPMG professionals for short or long-term assignments.

When you work with a KPMG team, you will:

  • Gain access to quality people and proven business methodologies
  • Engage with people who both listen to you and speak your language
  • Receive advice that’s clear, practical and jargon-free
  • Work with a professional organization that tailors its services to your needs
  • Choose and pay for only the services you need and want
  • Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from working with people who take their professional and ethical responsibilities seriously
