Our firm is active in this sector, in all trades (audit, accounting, consulting, etc.). This activity sector is deemed sensitive as it is governed by heavy regulations (ANSM, FDA, EMEA, ARS, etc.) and for which intellectual property (patents, R&D costs, etc.) is an essential intangible asset!
Our consulting know-how:
In the early stages of research (Biotechs and Medtechs)
Our consulting and accounting firm has broad experience as a key player in the fields of Biotechs and Medtechs, either listed or not. We maintain a high level of comprehension and knowledge of all issues specific to your activity :
Many client references in the Biotech and Medtech sectors provide a measure of our competence and know-how in this field.
We are also active within pharmaceutical laboratories and consequently familiar with all issues linked with this strongly regulated activity (research contract accounting, marketing authorization filing costs, license contract costs and their associated features: up-front, milestone, royalties, pharmacovigilance, etc.)
Most of the pharmaceutical groups have an international organization divided according to certain functionalities per country (distribution, research, production, pharmacovigilance, etc.) requiring the implementation and documentation of a transfer pricing policy.
Thanks to its competencies in management and tax issues, our firm has designed several transfer pricing policies on behalf of pharmaceutical or research groups (Overall studies).
We also work with health cooperation groups, which are a privileged cooperation tool between the public and private sectors, as well as between city authorities and hospitals. The sepcific features of these structures are notably linked to the annual monitoring or follow-up of the members' subscription to the group and their contribution to the capital, as well as the processing of subsidies granted by the health cooperation group ("Groupement de Coopération Sanitaire" or GCS) or by the Regional Health Agencies and the public and private health institutions.
In the scope of subsidies received by the GCSs, we also intervene in the establishment of certificates of expenditure.
We often work in the non-profit sector that include all legal and accounting specificities, with medical research foundations and social work foundations (aid for the sick), recognised as being of public utility.
Finally, whatever the medical activity and the sector, our philosophy is to privilege interpersonal contact throughout our mission in the interest of our clients and with available, stable and high-level contacts with, obviously, the law required level of confidentiality.
