Team of advisors meet to discuss a compliance program

Compliance+

Bringing you value beyond compliance

Compliance+

Baker Tilly helps turn your regulatory compliance into an easier, more strategic process that enhances value for your company.

    A company’s approach to the regulatory environment must balance the governance, risk and compliance programs with managing the data, information and insights used to build and run each compliance model. Baker Tilly brings an improved governance approach focused on delivering value to your organization beyond simply satisfying your regulatory requirements.

    Too often, compliance work is conducted in silos, leading to redundancies, inconsistencies and troublesome inaccuracies. Our team utilizes a consistent data source to maximize transparency across your compliance needs, giving your board and management teams the confidence they demand.

    Compliance+ benefits delivered

    Baker Tilly’s Compliance+ team of industry professionals brings accounting, compliance and modeling experience that will not only help improve governance and mitigate your risk but will optimize your internal controls processes so you can leverage resources (people, time and budgets) in more efficient and effective ways.
