Business Consulting & Financial Services

Expertise & Services

ropa consulting GmbH offers its services across all branches; particularly for SME’s (Small / Medium Enterprises) who do not have the necessary resources to employ a full-time CFO/Finance Director. We offer our services as a consultant or an outsource-partner, according to the client’s requirements.

Our customers can expect the same levels of engagement and support in all finance and strategic departments they would receive from an in-house CFO/Finance Director. However, the added advantage would be in only using resources when the support is necessary.

We offer services in areas of strategic finance management, process optimization, risk management, internal control systems, change-management, support around corporate governance, consulting in corporate finance and in all aspects of  Controlling / Finance Director functions.

We also support our clients in various accounting and financial structuring areas at times of company founding, restructuring as well as buying, selling or merging of companies.  Additionally we provide support for all accounting according to OR, Swiss GAAP Fer and IFRS.
