Critical Point Network

The Baker Tilly Staples Rodway Critical Point Network is a support network that assists professional advisors.

In all businesses there will come times when they reach critical points, where serious decisions have to be made about their future. These decisions may involve tricky tax issues, valuations or financial modelling. Regardless of the type of decision, most business owners will seek help from their trusted advisors: accountants and lawyers.

Your business as an advisor depends on the quality of professional advice that you are able to provide to clients, but in our increasingly complex environment it can be difficult to keep up with rapid changes and meeting your clients’ needs. It is important that you have someone to turn to for advice on specialist matters which is outside of your areas of expertise.

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway’s Critical Point Network has specialist expertise available to provide you with the support you need to be able to continue to service your clients with the high quality advice to which they have become accustomed and thereby enhancing your relationship with them

Memberships Benefits

Membership of the Critical Point Network provides you with access to the following benefits:

  • Our specialist skills to help you provide quality service to clients in areas outside of your immediate areas of expertise;
  • There is no charge if the time required to respond to the query takes 10 minutes or less;
  • Should the query require more than 10 minutes to respond, we will provide an estimate of the costs for approval and authorisation before proceeding with the assignment.
  • Regular periodic newsletters, technical updates and seminars, discussion groups and forums to keep you abreast of new developments.
  • Networking events to maintain regular contact with your peers, other professionals and bankers.

How does it work?

Using our network is easy – and membership is free.

We will either consult with you in relation to the client matter or directly with the client, as you prefer and needs dictate. If you introduce us to the client, Baker Tilly Staples Rodway will respect the integrity of your relationship and will not infringe on it in any way. We do not accept direct approaches from clients who have been introduced to us by you through CPN. As the primary referral source, you will be kept appraised of all progress in the matter.

Once you are a member, feel free to call us with any queries you may have. Each of our specialist disciplines and contact details are detailed below.
