Daily operations are often most important.

All employees are well qualified within accounting procedures and possess comprehensive and relevant work experience from various business activities. Our services include ordinary accounting services, remittance services, public reporting, periodical statements, tax returns and statutory accounts.

All assignments are monitored by an employee and a group leader responsible for the assignments to ensure availability for our clients.
Taking care of family business
Management for investors and privately held investment companies has always been one of the core services rendered by Procurator. Our services are coordinated with the owners and the board of directors and are executed according to decisions made by the board. Management services are always kept within the mandate given by the customer. We present complete summaries of all kinds of investments, including gains and losses on a monthly basis or as often as the clients request the reports. We report on a company level, prepare tax returns and statutory accounts, including consolidation whenever necessary, attend to all formalities such as minutes and protocols and assist the owners with their private tax returns. Privately held investment companies develop over time resulting in new challenges and demand for our services. New generations are gradually taking over, investments must be reorganised into separate companies and holding companies may be established. We ensure succession processes and that restructurings are carried out as cost efficient and optimal as possible; through spin-offs, mergers, establishment of holding companies or single purpose companies.
Many clients request our competence insupervision of the running operations. By close supervision through budgeting, reporting and analysis, the operations may be optimised and adjusted to meet new conditions for the enterprise. We participate as a discussion partner in the establishment of strategic and financial objectives, preparation of budgets as well as the supervision through reporting and analysis.
Minimize tax on all business levels
We may assist in organising company structures to achieve minimum taxes on all levels. In case of equity transactions, initiated by a succession process or some other structural adjustment, we may assist in the implementation and evaluation of tax positions to prevent errors that may trigger extra taxes. We may also assist our clients with their private tax returns and other tax related issues.
New times - new challenges
Future generations may be involved in the family business. Their involvement could be implemented by thorough planning. Many questions arise; How and when should this happen? Who will be in charge after the process? Should the new generation get access to the values? Should activities or investments be split? What about tax matters? There are several problems and issues to consider. We have been through succession processes for our clients and also collaborate with external advisors whenever necessary.

The important decisions
We assist our clients in optimizing corporate structures whether this may be mergers, demergers, establishment of new companies, transformations or liquidations. We prepare the necessary documentation and ensure that all formalities are taken care of and all tax consequences discussed. We collaborate with experienced external advisors whenever necessary to obtain quality assurance for our work.
Companies listed on the Stock Exchange are required to apply IFRS as an accounting standard. Other companies use simplified IFRS (voluntary) to highlight their assets in long-term investments in reporting purposes. IFRS are large and complex with frequent updates of standards. This requires substantial additional expertise. We assist our clients in both IFRS as finance director’s extended arm and with full IFRS reporting in Norwegian, as well as in English.

Outsourcing of the financial management usually increase the efficiency for small and middle sized companies. Our employees engaged in financial management outsourcing possess adequate experience from previous executive positions within business administration and audit. Hence, we may render services as financial partner or chief financial officer (CFO). We focus on financials and reporting, and take command within the financial operations.
Our values are summed up in the word “LYNOR” in Norwegian. We strive to employ and adhere to these values on a daily basis in our actions and decisions.
