Services for the Insurance Adjuster

Insurance adjusters must deal with accounting issues and financial data in virtually every claim they process. At times, however, they need an experienced accounting professional to consult and assist in claim evaluation.

Our professionals, experienced in the property insurance field, can help evaluate areas to investigate, assist in the examination of pertinent records, aid in file documentation, and later be of assistance if litigation and expert witness testimony is necessary.         

We provide an unbiased evaluation of the financial facts and economic issues. Our team is used to dealing with individuals who view them as adversaries, who offer minimal assistance and information. Therefore, our approach is creative, flexible and objective. Claim verification is not limited to traditional accounting methods. We rely on internal documents provided for our review as well as available external sources. Our team is skilled in collecting and analyzing support documents in consultation with the adjuster.

Franchise Agreement
Compliance Verification

We assist franchisors and franchisees by providing an independent, third-party assessment of whether franchisee remittances are properly managed in accordance with franchise agreements.

While our services are flexible depending on the needs of the franchise, procedures in this area often include:        

  • Reviewing franchise agreements and guidelines for key provisions related to royalties, marketing funds, training funds and other fees 
  • Assessing and testing processes and procedures related to franchisee remittances 
  • Verifying that franchisee-funded activities are in compliance with franchise agreements 
  • Expenditures in accordance with guidelines 
  • Internal allocation methodologies 
  • Determining whether franchisees meet franchise agreement requirements 

Contract compliance testing benefits both franchisors and franchisees and promotes transparency within the organization.
