Personal and Business Tax Planning and Preparation

Careful tax planning is critical to any business operation. It involves an understanding of the interrelated areas of tax laws as they continually change through new legislation, regulations and rulings. It also involves the motivation and skill to recognize opportunities and recommend creative solutions. Taxes are a complicated and demanding discipline and at Cornick Garber Sandler we place a distinct professional emphasis on our Tax Department, as evidenced by the high ratio of tax practitioners to total professionals in the firm.
A Unique Angle of Approach

Accounting and Auditing

Accounting and auditing services are common to all accounting firms. Yet even within these “basics” there are real and discernable differences. At Cornick Garber Sandler, we offer our clients a sophisticated, in-depth approach – one that treats the audit, review, compilation or attestation engagement as the first step of a process, not the final product.

At the Outset
The engagement begins with a determined effort to understand your business almost as well as you do. We utilize this knowledge in order to provide the most cost effective service. In addition to rendering financial statements and reports, we seek to identify and evaluate a company’s strengths and weaknesses so that management can make sound decisions. While other accounting firms may solve problems when they are presented, we seek to identify problem situations before they surface and suggest appropriate action.

Partner Involvement
Our partners possess a broad range of accounting, auditing and industry expertise, including new or highly complex accounting standards and SEC rules and regulations. After meeting with the client direct partner involvement continues with planning the engagement strategy, and continues with staff supervision through the review, evaluation and final client discussion phase. Our partners understand and assist our clients in achieving their objectives, whether they are related to the needs of a relatively simple start-up operation, an initial public offering or a sophisticated business that is expanding internationally.
