With the sky-rocketing costs of medical insurance and given that many companies historically encounter lower claims reimbursement than yearly insurance payments, it’s an increasing trend for companies to investigate the financial benefits of self-insuring, particularly outpatient claims. Given this trend, we are now offering services to help you administer your self-insured reimbursement of medical costs for your staff.

Basically, we will render assistance to facilitate the administration process in order to meet the payment timing and to ensure that the medical reimbursements are in accordance with the Company’s policy and available limits. Most importantly, these reimbursements will be reviewed by our qualified Doctor to ensure their technical consistency.

The main objective of the product is to reduce the tedious administrative work of your employees and subsequently improve the efficiency of your department. Further analysis has also shown that there are substantial cost savings associated with this particular outsourcing compared to managing the administration internally or even through a third-party insurance agency.

While managing medical reimbursements internally can bring efficiencies, administrative staff in general often do not have the necessary technical medical skills to read and approve that the diagnosis/sickness is indeed covered under the Company’s medical policies. To date, however, the only alternative has been to pay what may turn out to be very costly premiums to a third-party company.

What we are offering is the best of both worlds, savings accruing from the fact that reimbursement of medical, plus our professional service fees may be far lower than standard premiums charged by third-party companies. Again, this has typically been the case with outpatient reimbursement whereby the company maintains its inpatient third-party insurance. Savings on total outpatient costs can be 40% or even more.


Three main benefits

  • Eliminate tedious administrative work
  • Administrative staff do not usually have medical knowledge
  • Estimated cost savings of approximately 40% compared to insurance premium payment


Scope of Services

  • Initial medical reimbursements policies and procedures development
  • Administration of self-insured medical reimbursement in terms of:
    • Technical Medical (reviewed by qualified doctor)
    • Limits available
  • Payment processing of the medical reimbursements
  • Reporting e.g. Medical limit updates & Medical analysis reports, common sickness.


We can provide you with a comprehensive computerised payroll service with security payslips, P45 forms etc. We can also talk to the tax department about employee tax matters on your behalf.

Market research consistently shows that for international business, transfer pricing continues to be the most significant international tax issue.

Tax audits are becoming more focused in most countries, with an increasing number of specialists at the heart of the fiscal authorities. The exchange of information between different countries is becoming much more prevalent, leading to greater clarity over cross border tax takes.

The issue is not just confined to large multinationals. Medium-sized and family businesses are also affected where their trading operations take them overseas. It is often in this area that there are easy pickings for tax inspectors descending on businesses that previously treated transfer pricing as a low priority.

Our services consist of (among others):

Value added tax, or VAT, is a tax charged on most business-to-business and business-to-consumer transactions in all the countries of the European Union and in a growing number of other countries. The laws establishing the VAT are national laws. In the EU the national laws are framed within certain parameters specified by the EU in Council Directive 2006/112 on the common system of value added tax.

The complexity of the VAT legislation is a growing concern for businesses. Management of VAT and other indirect taxes is a key issue, especially for companies involved in international trade.

Our specialists help you to maximize savings in finding an optimal VAT position for current or planned business activities. They can assist you with VAT planning and compliance, VAT scans and with local and international advice.

Acquiring and developing new capabilities to grow market share and gain competitive advantage will be a key challenge facing business managers, whether their business operates in a national or international marketplace.

Our corporate finance specialists are here to help your business succeed in this fast-moving environment.

Our corporate finance advisory covers: 
•    Due diligence;
•    Business valuation;
•    Lead advisory.




Due diligence is a review of all, or specific aspects of, the affairs of a business. Our due diligence services have helped our clients at crucial points in their business development. We help them to make sound commercial decisions and avoid bad ones. These decisions are often highly significant for the client's future prosperity. 

Due diligence is challenging and needs a real understanding of how the business actually operates with the people behind it and their motivations for entering into the proposed transaction. Among our successes were opening a client’s eyes to the fact it was buying into a volatile industry with a lack of clear underlying regulation, while on another occasion we uncovered years of management fraud that had left immeasurable tax liabilities due to lack of legal documentation. 




Whatever the need, Moores Rowland can assist the management of your company in establishing a range of fair value of the business by taking into account the economic and operating environment, the company’s financial condition and the regulatory environment.

Staffed with highly experienced corporate transaction analysts and valuation experts, we provide integrity in our valuations, be they for internal reasons or as an offer negotiation base. Moreover, whether  it’s the pricing, structure or the qualitative and quantitative aspects of a transaction, the main point is to discern whether management is executing the transaction in the best interests of the shareholders (non-controlling, as well as controlling).


Net assets and goodwill valuation (IFRS 3):

With the establishment of the new IFRS 3, book value business combination is out. Therefore, greater transparency is required in establishing the balance sheet account after a business combination. With IFRS 3, the balance sheet accounts should be stated at fair value, meaning that all identifiable assets (tangible, as well as intangible assets like patents, brands, certain R&D costs, customer base, back orders, etc.) need to be priced at their worth in an arm’s length deal.

Biological assets valuation (IFRS 41):

Plantation assets are normally stated at cost of acquisition. Under IFRS 41, plantation assets are living assets that can grow, deteriorate or even die. Thus, the real value of a plantation’s assets at any given time may not reflect their book value. Hence, the value of a plantation’s assets needs to be determined on an annual basis.



Corporate action is normally carried out in the face of arising needs and/or opportunities that management believes to be good for the company.

In our years of advising clients, we find that on occasions  management is left at risk due to some unanticipated circumstances.

We will be on your side to assist in arranging your M&A, funding and disposal needs. And as our team of advisors has over 30 years of combined experience, you can rest assured you’re getting the best.

If you are going through an acquisition, Moores Rowland will examine the financial, legal and tax circumstances of your target company. We will provide you with the most thorough insight we can into its past and projected profitability as well its financial structure. We will also help you get the right financial clauses in your contracts.

If you find that your business is struggling you will want to get to grips with any operational issues and get back to making a profit. Your business may need some restructuring, whether it is improving your organizational structure or making internal operations more efficient. Moores Rowland can perform an operations review to identify operational inefficiencies, saving costs and overheads. We can look at unprofitable business segments, divisions or affiliates and any weaknesses in systems, procedures and controls.

We can help you during restructuring by:

  • Defining and implementing an overall strategic turnaround and restructuring plan,
  • Preparing a priority timeline for restructuring,
  • Providing operational consultation at each stage of the restructuring,

We have played a leading role in the field of special audit of projects funded by bilateral and multilateral aid agencies, having undertaken financial audits for various NGOs and programmes funded by The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), New Zealand Agency for International Development and the U.S. Agency for International Development (UsAid) Mission in Indonesia, among others. We also have considerable experience with procurement contract reviews for World Bank financed projects.


Investigation Services

We assisted the Office of Anticorruption and Integrity (OAI) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in uncovering evidence of corruption and fraud practices in certain projects funded by ADB in Indonesia.


Socioeconomic research/survey

We have extensive experience and are well qualified in qualitative and quantitative research techniques. These cover baseline surveys, project impact assessment, data collection, data analysis, monitoring and evaluation, and reporting. We have completed projects and research work in various sectors for a number of clients. Among these, for example, were a number of projects in a variety of agricultural sectors for the likes of IFC PENSA with the ultimate aim of improving agricultural practices and raising living standards across Indonesia.

On an entirely different front, meanwhile, we also conducted an integrity and capacity assessment of the justice sector in targeted areas of Indonesia for the UN Office of Project Services (UNOPS), while in the educational sector we conducted a survey for the Ministry of Education on the external evaluation of the Target School Programs (TSP) and Non-Target School Programs in East Java Province. 


Public Awareness

We also have considerable experience in public awareness/relations and outreach services in Indonesia and our Public Awareness Team was engaged to handle media matters for the UsAid-funded IN-ACCE project, which developed new anti-corruption legislation and established regional courts specifically to handle cases of corruption. Meanwhile, we led the efforts to socialize the Deposit Insurance Agency (Public Awareness for Deposit Insurance Establishment Project – UsAid), taking the lead role in media relations.

On yet another front we drafted communication and promotional materials for the Learning Assistance Program for Islamic Schools (LAPIS) of Cardno Acil Pty Ltd / AusAID, including newsletters, informational brochures, and activity profiles. We also managed the logistical aspects of seminars, symposiums, workshops, conferences, and similar events from the conception stage right through to completion.


Rule of Law and Human Rights

In a consortium with Millennium DPI Partners, LLC, we won an Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC) on the International Rule of Law Technical Assistance Services funded by UsAid. The purpose of these contracts is to support the development of the rule of law, and the promotion and protection of human rights throughout the world.


Public Private Partnership (PPP)

Moores Rowland has specialist expertise and experience through the Praxity Alliance with PPP projects across Europe and particularly the UK.


Project Management

We have considerable experience in managing large and complex projects. Understanding the unique complexities of how projects should be designed in Indonesia makes us a leading provider for forestry and climate change projects.

One important project we have led was the Katingan Peatland Restoration & Conservation Project in Central Kalimantan funded by Marubeni Corporation, the Japanese Ministry of Economics, Trade and Industry, and PT Rimba Makmur Utama, providing experts and specialists on the areas of REDD+ at each phase of the project.

Other clients for environmental projects include organizations such as the William J.Clinton Foundation, UNDP, and the World Wide Fund for Nature.

Moores Rowland also supported the Project Manager of Indonesia – State Audit Reform Sector Development Project (STAR-SDP – ADB funded) in the monitoring and evaluation of the project contracts/activities. The project supported the reform undertaken by the Government of Indonesia to improve governance, efficiency, economy, and effectiveness of public sector audit through strengthened audit institutions operating to internationally accepting standards. We designed, coordinated and implemented training for PIU and BAWASDA staff on financial report format and procurement  covering 30 provincial BAWASDAs (Regional Supervisory Body), 20 BAWASDAs at regency and municipality level, and 50 Secretariat of DPRDs (regional parliament) in Indonesia.
