Our clients say

Our experience with Plante Moran has always been very positive. They provide a multitude of services that meet our needs, including our annual review, AUP report for FAR, benefit plan audits, and our tax returns. When we bought a building a few years ago, I mentioned it in a call with our engagement partner, and she suggested we utilize a cost segregation study. I didn’t know that was possible, so having a consistent engagement partner and manager who understand our company and what we’re working on is very valuable.
