Automotive Aftermarket

Prepare For The Road Ahead

Demand for aftermarket parts used for car maintenance, car upgrades, new markets created by electric and hybrid vehicle sales, and other external drivers present significant opportunities for automotive aftermarket businesses.

However, challenges are always present in the sector that is, by its nature, tied closely to the rest of the automobile industry. Shifting interest rates and consumer confidence can impact sales as development in electronic vehicles also brings uncertainty along with opportunity—all within a heavily regulated environment that requires strict compliance with evolving local, state, and federal tax complexities.

Avoid Tax Penalties

Ever-changing nexus laws could have major implications for businesses that operate and sell across state lines when tax obligations aren’t properly monitored.

Staying proactive with tax planning can help determine which taxes you owe, when they need to be paid, and what strategies to reduce obligations might be available—so you can avoid missed deadlines that result in costly fines.

Protect Valuable Data and Assets

Cybercriminals infiltrate businesses at alarming rates with targets including trade secrets, sensitive business information, financial systems, and more.

A security breach could have massive financial and reputational implications for your company—ranging from regulatory penalties, infrastructure disruption, stolen funds, and damaged customer relationships—if sensitive data leaks.

The most effective way to mitigate a breach is to prevent one from happening. Test your current systems, or implement new ones, to evaluate your safety levels and identify controls you need for further preventive measures.
