Critical Point Network

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.

Introducing the Baker Tilly Staples Rodway Critical Point Network

The Critical Point Network is a support network that assists professional advisors by providing the ability to offer their clients specialist services outside their own expertise.

In all businesses there comes a time where the management team reaches a critical point, a time when serious decisions have to be made about the 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 advisory role depends on the quality of professional advice that you are able to provide to clients. In our increasingly complex environment it can be difficult to keep up with rapid legislative and risk management changes. It’s crucial that you have someone to turn to for advice on specialist matters which are outside your specific capabilities.

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway’s Critical Point Network offers that access to specialist expertise, without the concern of referring your valuable client on to another accounting firm. We provide your clients with the additional “stretch advice” they’re looking for, while preserving and reinforcing your existing relationship.
