Frictionless business advisory services to make your job easier 

How can our business advisory services add value to your organisation? 

This question is our starting point to ensure we provide valuable insights that will:

  • Boost your business development
  • Increase profitability
  • Identify and reduce operational threats

Not all advisory services are the same. Do any of these experiences sound familiar? 

  • A lack of transparency over advisory costs and deadlines
  • An overload of corporate jargon in communications
  • Broken promises over who’d be undertaking your work 


When you want a refreshingly different approach and outcome, our advisory services provide transparency, clarity and accountability. 

The TGS network has grown and continues to grow worldwide because our reputation and your satisfaction are everything to us – and this shines through in our work. 

You’ll find an overview of our advisory expertise below. We’d love to hear from you whether you’re looking for help in one area or multiple fields. 


Budgeting, financial planning and control

You don’t need us to tell you how essential it is to have your business finances in great shape. Our business advisory services in this area will provide clarity, foresight and the relevant experience to enable you to look at your organisation’s financial future more confidently. 

You’ll benefit from our network’s expertise in the following and more:

  • Year-end account preparation
  • Management account reviews
  • Budget preparation and short/long-term financial projections


You’ll also get value from our insight and proactive approach. We’ll help you understand how to use the financial data at your fingertips to plan effectively, make any necessary internal changes and harness the right tools to help your organisation flourish in uncertain times. 

Is your financial framework still fit for purpose? Significant strides in control and compliance are taking place thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) and other technologies. 

Our advisory services take a holistic view when you want to modernise your in-house financial function. We aim to deliver efficiencies without affecting compliance with regulatory frameworks and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). 

Whether your organisation operates in one jurisdiction or globally, tapping into the TGS network will ensure the advice and support you receive is reliable, current and valuable.

Cash flow and profit projections

Cash flow is the lifeblood of any business. However, there are times when, for various reasons, your company might face difficulties. These issues include:

  • Tax arrears that need settled imminently 
  • Pressure from your bank and other creditors
  • Shareholder scrutiny
  • A lack of visibility and forecasting


No business wants to be surprised by any of the above, but if you’re having problems currently or want to ensure no repeat, our financial advisory firms can help. 

The road to improved financial clarity begins with you tapping into the strength of the TGS network to find the best firm to work with you.

After the devastating impact of the global pandemic, it’s more important than ever to prepare for the unexpected. There are several other challenges facing businesses worldwide, and navigating everything on your own can be difficult. 

A fresh perspective on your financial forecasts and projects can help prevent many problems and give you greater control. 

Arrange a call today to be put in touch with a local expert. 


Domestic and international expansion 

There’s a lot to consider when your business is looking to expand at home or further afield. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) can be complex, with many potential pitfalls along the way. 

Our M&A corporate advisory services are focused on helping you through the process from start to finish so you can still manage your day-to-day priorities. Here are some of the areas where the TGS network can add value:

  • Valuing potential companies to acquire
  • Raising the necessary finance for expansion
  • Due diligence on potential targets
  • Forecasting and restructuring post-merger or acquisition


Whether you’re in the planning stages or further down the line with your merger or acquisition, it’s essential to partner with a firm you can trust. 

International expansion, in particular, can raise many unforeseen issues. As well as M&A corporate advisory services, tapping into our global network gives you access to expertise in tax, legal and accountancy matters. 

There’s a lot at stake in mergers, acquisitions and scaling your organisation. Our members understand this and have the skills and experience to guide you through uncharted waters.

ESG advisory 

The demand for environmental, social and governance (ESG) advisory services is growing rapidly. There are several important sustainability challenges facing organisations globally, including:

  • Complying with new reporting regulations
  • Avoiding claims of greenwashing from shareholders, staff and the media
  • Unearthing relevant green tax incentives


The ESG landscape is moving at pace, so we can help you keep up to date with what’s necessary and applicable to your business, wherever it’s based. 

We’re proud signatories of the UN Global Compact and can provide you with a level of insight that will inform, inspire and change your business for the better. 

Within the four areas below, we can guide you through the challenges and opportunities you’ll face and ensure you a solid ESG strategy for the future. 

  • Anti-corruption
  • Environment
  • Human rights
  • Labour 


TGS stands for Think Global Sustainability, so this topic is at the heart of what we do. Our ESG advisory services are a core offering and not something we’ve only decided to provide because of what’s happening in the world. 

Our member firms are at the forefront of ESG advisory and have access to our specialist auditing tool – TGS Label. We’re only at the start of the journey to a more sustainable world.

Support for trusts, foundations, pension funds and charitable and philanthropic involvement

An increasing number of businesses are embracing corporate social responsibility (CSR) and positively contributing to society. This is something we’ve championed since founding the TGS network. 

When you have plans to leave a legacy by helping others, our members can advise you on the following and more:

  • Setting up charitable trusts
  • How to establish a foundation
  • Considerations around philanthropy 


There are legal, financial and ESG implications when considering any of the above. Our role is to guide you through the ins and outs to give you a full understanding of how to take your plans forward. 

Of course, there are different laws, regulations and structures in place in different countries. That’s where the power of our global network comes into its own. Wherever you’re based and whatever your plans are, we’ll ensure you find the best people for the job. 

Beyond putting trusts and foundations in place, we’ll also help with the bigger picture around greenwashing and how to communicate your CSR efforts clearly and credibly. 

Our member firms can also steer you through your pension obligations at home and in other countries where you have employees.

Examples of where we can help include:

  • Reviewing company pensions after mergers and acquisitions
  • Legal compliance in new jurisdictions
  • Corporate governance of company pension schemes


Whether you’re about to open an office in a new country, are planning an acquisition or need independent advice on your current pension arrangements, you can count on TGS.

Succession planning

Succession planning is critical to the long-term future of businesses. And the sooner you’re able to look ahead and put the right structures and processes in place, the better. 

This vital business area is often overlooked or not done thoroughly because of day-to-day demands. However, leaving succession planning until it’s too late or not implementing it all can have serious consequences:

  • Reduced confidence among employees and suppliers
  • Uncertainty, which opens the door for competitors
  • Legal and tax implications that could damage the business financially


As with most things in life, it’s best to prepare for the unexpected. For example, you may suffer from health problems as you near retirement, decide to slow down or pursue other interests away from work. 

With this in mind, our succession planning advisory services will provide peace of mind and a detailed roadmap for transition. This includes, but isn’t limited to, the following:

  • Selecting the right person/people to hand over to
  • Mentoring them over an extended period
  • Ensuring you document your succession plans and they’re legally binding
  • Gradually handing over responsibility and being a sounding board for new ideas


There’s no reason why business succession planning shouldn’t be a seamless process. Our member firms have the knowledge and experience to ensure every last detail is considered and planned for. 

If you’ve been putting off preparing for your organisation’s future, now’s the time to take control by contacting TGS


Wealth management

Our advisory services also extend to wealth management. Having your own finances in order as a business owner is just as important as ensuring your organisation is on a sound footing.

The areas below are often things people put off for another day. However, taking the time to talk through your options doesn’t take long and will give you added security, knowing everything is taken care of. 

  • Tax and estate planning
  • Philanthropy and charitable giving 
  • Pensions and investments


Your wealth management can also impact your business, for example:

  • When do you plan to retire?
  • Have you made a will that states what will happen to your share of the company when you pass away?
  • How will you fund your growth plans?


With so many firms and options in the wealth management market, it’s essential you get advice tailored to your circumstances. We take a holistic view of your financial situation as a business owner and individual to deliver advice you can trust. 

The potential risks and opportunities around wealth management vary from country to country. Having up-to-date local knowledge at your fingertips comes as standard with the TGS network.

Whether your circumstances have recently changed or you’ve not made the time to explore your wealth management options, let us clarify your options step-by-step. Get in touch today.
