How AAFCPAs can help Life Sciences Companies

Why Choose AAFCPAs?

  • AAFCPAs’ team of 325+ multi-disciplinary professionals includes CPAs, Consulting Tax Attorneys, Consulting CFOs & Controllers, Data Analysts, Business Process, and IT Security Professionals, as well as Wealth Advisors. Our specialists come together quickly to help you persevere through the complexity of running a sustainable, high-performing organization in today’s business world.
  • Our team includes senior professionals with Big 4 and national firm experience. They have advised mid-sized, multinational SEC registrants and bring “lessons learned” to emerging companies navigating the accounting and tax complexities of revenue recognition, development costs, share based compensation, and complex equity or debt structures in venture capital transactions.
  • And while our ideas and experience are “big,” we pride ourselves on the fact that we are a locally grown firm that has expanded into a nationwide reach.
  • AAFCPAs’ diverse tax expertise is delivered by seasoned advisors with years of proven experience advising start-ups, venture-back companies, and companies expanding across the country and the globe with complex multistate, cross-border, international accounting, and taxation issues. We are deeply familiar with tax credits, deductions, incentives, and other strategies to help companies grow and preserve cash.
  • Many of AAFCPAs’ start-up and emerging growth companies leverage our Outsourced Accounting & Fractional CFO practice to achieve their finance function. AAFCPAs provides right-sized, outsourced accounting & advisory solutions, from cloud-based transactional accounting to high level CFO deliverables designed to optimize the modern finance function, and efficiently address your most critical financial processes.
  • If an exit is what you’re eyeing, you may access our Business Transaction Advisory team, which advises clients managing and executing buy-side, sell-side, private equity, and internal transactions. We help clients make informed decisions and execute transactions through all stages of the deal cycle.
  • We provide cost effective in-house tax solutions for companies that have gone public or are on the path to IPO, many of which the audit firm is unable to provide. These services include corporate income and sales/use tax advisory and compliance, preparation of tax provision workpapers and related financial statement footnotes, and stock option modeling upon request for executives and founders. (We do not audit publicly traded companies.)
  • AAFCPAs provides additional “second firm” solutions in instances where clients’ CPA firm either lacks the resources or has auditor independence issues. These solutions include SOX 404 management assessments, enterprise risk assessments, cybersecurity risk assessments and Vulnerability Management as a Service (VMaaS).
  • As an independent member of PrimeGlobal, the third largest CPA firm association in the world, our clients experience seamless national and global coordination of resources, on an as needed, pay-as-you-use basis. Our clients consider us an attractive alternative to national CPA firms.

Massachusetts is home to the most verdant and productive life sciences ecosystem in the world. AAFCPAs is uniquely positioned to provide you with the close personal attention of our executive level professionals and help you continue to position your company to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
