Transaction advisory

Transaction advisory services (TAS) groups in accounting firms help organizations evaluate and navigate corporate transactions, with services that include business modeling, M&A, and valuations. A career in transaction advisory is a lot like investment banking and can therefore involve very long hours with lots of stress and extreme attention to detail. The competition for positions is intense, as most accounting firms only have small TAS groups relative to the rest of their divisions. The most common task that a transaction service provider will focus on is completing due diligence reports (ensuring the viability and legality of the transaction on behalf of the client).
