Capability in explaining GAAP to regulators - - Regulators may be reluctant to accept GAAP accounting for rate making, capital adequacy or other regulatory purposes because of concerns about how GAAP works and whether the resulting information "makes sense" from a regulatory perspective. Convincing a regulator to permit the application of GAAP to a complex transaction requires a straightforward explanation of the transaction, its economics, and how GAAP reflects those economics. Our ability to simplify the complex and explain our views in plain English combined with our decades of experience dealing with the accounting for complex transactions makes us well-suited to serve as accounting experts when dealing with regulators.
