About BlumShapiro Automotive

Today, the rewards of managing an automobile dealership are greater than ever. Yet so are the challenges. Squeezed profit margins, increased regulation, the need for greater internal controls — these are just a few of the issues auto dealers face. You need an accounting team that offers not just financial expertise but also industry knowledge, so you can get the advice you need for profitability and success.

BlumShapiro knows the automobile industry. Over the years, we’ve built a team of CPAs and other professionals dedicated solely to serving auto dealerships, and we work hard to stay on top of the issues you’re likely to face. How does this expertise translate for you?

Auto Dealership Experience

First, you don’t have to train us. Unlike accounting generalists, we speak your language and we understand your business. So when we perform our year-end work, our industry expertise, timeliness and professionalism make it easier on you and your staff. Our year-end engagement is the cornerstone of our relationship, yet it’s not the only time you’ll see us. During the year, we suggest on-site visits where, over the course of a day, we review your books, spot-check internal controls in the various departments and make sure the numbers you’re using to make important decisions are up-to-date and accurate.

This interim visit provides the chance to discuss the business issues that are on your mind, like identifying areas for increased profitability and control, seeking advice on tax strategies to reduce your overall taxes or consulting on succession planning or strategies to build individual wealth.

All year long, we’ll keep you up-to-date on industry issues you should know about, such as upcoming IRS changes and possible manufacturer/dealer changes. We’ll bring new issues to your attention, and we’ll serve as a sounding board when you’re contemplating important steps.
