With Plante Moran, you get more than compliance, because we know the dealership industry and understand the risks and opportunities you face. You can depend on us to provide meaningful recommendations for efficiency and control improvements, as well as guidance regarding tax compliance issues, tax minimization, and strategy.

Financial Statement Audit & Tax

You can expect extraordinary responsiveness

You will find that the Plante Moran team will perform most of its consulting services at your dealership, offering personal service and extraordinary responsiveness. You also will benefit from the team’s value-added approach and the financial consultants’ ability to collaborate with their 1,600 colleagues with specialties that range from corporate finance to succession planning and technology selection and implementation consulting.

Financial Statement Audit

When you engage the dealership consulting team to conduct financial statement audits, you can expect more than compliance because they know dealerships and understand taxes and key indicators on your financial statement.

Their experience with 200 other dealerships means they won’t have to ask you a lot of general questions. But at the same time, they will know the right questions to ask so you can take advantage of opportunities to improve cash flow from tax credits to real estate decisions. 

Tax Consulting Services

You can also benefit from our tax consulting specialists who continually monitor regulations at the local, state, and federal levels. As the rules change, they continually develop new tax strategies and amend existing tax strategies so that dealerships can take full advantage of opportunities to reduce their tax burden.

When it comes to complex issues like cost segregation studies and energy savings incentives you can also depend on the tax specialists to assemble a multidisciplinary team to document your position. 

You will benefit from our firm culture that emphasizes service

You will enjoy working with the Plante Moran dealership consultants. Many organizations and publications have honored our firm as a top place to work. That is because the firm’s culture is based on the philosophy of nurturing staff and putting the client first.

Our culture also translates into a very low staff turnover, so you will see many of the same team members at your dealership year after year. On that team will be a partner and a senior manager who will be able to discuss issues as they arise and offer possible solutions. 

“Plante Moran accountants always provide us with useful and innovative recommendations. They have gone beyond just validating our financial records by suggesting ways to contain our transportation costs and better manage risk. They offered us successful approaches to our complicated tax issues and served as trusted advisors during an ownership change. We have learned to depend on them for expertise to enhance the value of our companies.”
