Automotive & Dealer Services

Drive Your Business Forward

Pursuing your business goals isn’t always a straightforward journey. Auto, heavy equipment, RV, and boat dealers, as well as businesses in the automotive aftermarket and heavy truck sectors, face major industry disruption—from the growth of electric and autonomous vehicles to consolidation, shifting franchise control, increasing online vendors, and the rigid and everchanging regulatory environment.

Strategic planning is crucial to strengthen profits, support your workforce, and overcome tax and compliance issues.

Explore how our industry-smart services can help you stay ahead of change and focus on what matters most: growing your business profitably.

Conquer Industry Challenges

Put your biggest challenges in the rear-view with guidance from our professionals.

Prioritize Transition Planning

For business owners near retirement, planning to pass the business on to family or new leadership can be a complicated process—one that should commence years ahead of the actual turnover.

Privately held business owners should integrate both the business’s needs and their personal financial goals when determining plans for future management, finding the right successor, and the legacy they’d like to leave behind.

Envision your next business and life chapter with our Individual Financial Planning, Organizational Planning, Succession Planning Consulting Services, and more.

Navigate Tax Regulations

Staggering tax challenges such as ever-changing state tax laws and federal income tax obligations can drain precious time and resources from your business without guidance from tax professionals versed in their nuances.

Additionally, cost segregation studies can help you avoid paying federal and state income taxes earlier than necessary after building, remodeling, expanding, or purchasing a facility.

Confidently meet your tax and regulatory obligations with our State & Local Tax, Cost Segregation, Estate Tax Planning Services, and more.

Streamline Accounting Functions

Evaluate the efficiency of your accounting department to verify your systems function properly to help identify opportunities and weaknesses in your financial operations.

Utilizing our Systems Control & Operations Risk Evaluation (SCORE) program, our professionals can work with your accounting team to identify key areas of risk—including cash management, parts and service operations, inventory management, financing and insurance, schedules, and fraud risk.
