Know how your gaming business stacks up against the competition and in the eyes of regulators.
CLA helps bring unseen risks and opportunities into view by serving your whole operation and the people behind it. Together, we look beyond compliance details to performance improvements and enhanced profits.
What’s on your mind?
- Increasing profitability
- Taking advantage of tax reform
- Reducing tax liabilities
- Managing cash flow
- Staying ahead of rising competition
- Defending against cybercrimes
- Meeting regulatory compliance obligations
A unique approach
When you run a gaming operation, you need to have unwavering confidence in your internal controls, financials, and compliance functions. But your work doesn’t end when your regulatory obligations are satisfied; there are still profits, people, and policies to tend to.
CLA doesn’t take a task-oriented approach to serving gaming businesses and call it a day when the compliance list is checked off. We look at the entirety of your enterprise and act as an extension of your own finance team, offering proactive help with industry benchmarking, tax containment strategies, profitability improvements, information security, and whatever matters to you. The upshot is a surprise-free assessment of your exposure to risk — and a panoramic view of your opportunities for new growth and achievements.
