More than just solutions… Results.

Cornick Garber Sandler combines technical expertise and creative thinking to produce innovative solutions for every client.

We listen to the numbers. Intelligence and imagination teamed with sound professional judgment enables us to explore new concepts while remaining sensitive to the need for sustainable, practical solutions as companies grow and evolve. Cornick Garber Sandler’s experience covers a range of industries and services. While our practices may cover a broad spectrum, our focus on service and dedication to our clients never wavers.

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.

Business Planning

Our involvement consists of assisting in the development of business plans, including financial forecasts and projections for an existing or for a contemplated business. Our network of financial resources and other professionals often provides the wherewithal to make the plan a reality.

Business Technology Consulting

Business technology grows more powerful and complex each year. In today’s challenging business environment companies require expert guidance to help them leverage the benefits of business technology to make their businesses more efficient, responsive and profitable. Our certified professionals offer a broad range of business technology expertise to assist our clients in achieving their business goals, including:

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.

Personal Financial Planning for High Net Worth Individuals

Individuals often require professional assistance in identifying their financial objectives and goals. Under the direction of a Certified Financial Planner, we assist our clients in developing a comprehensive framework that incorporates such elements as estate planning, insurance requirements and investment planning to meet short and long-term requirements.

SEC Practice

While entering the publicly traded markets constitutes a significant step in the growth of many businesses, it also involves a change in the mindset of entrepreneurs who must now consider their new partners, the public and the many rules and regulations which apply under the securities laws. At Cornick Garber Sandler we have served as accountants, advisors and auditors to publicly traded enterprises throughout our existence, beginning in 1968. Some of our clients have grown from relatively small family owned businesses to large multi-national corporations. As a long time member of the AICPA’s Center for Audit Quality and its predecessor, the SEC Practice Section and under the direction of our Director of Accounting and Auditing Practices, who has served as Chairman of the SEC Practice Committee of the New York State Society of CPA’s and on the SEC Advisory Committee of the AICPA, we provide our clients with a thorough, experienced background to guide them through the sometimes arduous registration process with the SEC, advise our clients on compliance with the rules and regulations pertaining to various SEC filings and serve as auditors of publicly traded entities. We also advise publicly traded companies on compliance with some of the more complex new accounting issues as they arise.

Our firm has been registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Standards Board (PCAOB) since its founding and has already undergone successful inspections by the PCAOB staff. Unlike the large international accounting firms where your inquiries can take days or weeks to be cleared through the “national office”, at Cornick Garber Sandler we are structured to rapidly respond to our client’s inquiries.
