Meeting the international needs of private equity firms and their portfolio companies

Our client’s need

A Chicago-based private equity firm began its relationship with Baker Tilly when it acquired one of Baker Tilly’s Minnesota manufacturing clients with operations in the US and the Netherlands. After the acquisition, the company and the private equity firm required assistance to meet Dutch financial reporting requirements and support global tax needs.

Baker Tilly solution

Baker Tilly International independent member firms in the US and the Netherlands collaborated with the client to meet aggressive financial reporting deadlines in both countries. Additionally, international tax specialists worked together to facilitate tax planning meetings with management and implement appropriate planning ideas.

Results achieved

Since its acquisition of the manufacturing company, the private equity firm has acquired several more companies and regularly engages Baker Tilly as a Valued Business Advisor. Baker Tilly and other Baker Tilly International member firms have been able to provide consistent reporting for all portfolio companies, proactive local and international tax planning, and in-depth reporting on business performance to the boards of directors.
