Serving retail clients with accounting and business consulting professionals

When choosing an accounting firm, industry experience is an important consideration. Swartz Retson CPAs and accounting staff represent clients that own and operate a variety of retail businesses. If you are considering acquiring a new or existing location, we can help you by performing a business valuation to determine the economic viability of your business. We’ll help you answer the questions: “Is this venture right for me and how much of my own funds should I invest?” The most important factor for success is installation of good internal controls. With proper monitoring, you can identify cash and inventory shortages. Tap our experience—we have the expertise to evaluate your management team and know what your operating percentages should be. We’ll show you the proper tools and teach you how to use them. We offer assistance in these areas and more:

  • Audited, reviewed or compiled financial statements
  • Review of internal control procedures
  • Assistance with human resource issues
  • Analytical review
  • Business and individual tax planning
  • Multi-state payroll and income tax reporting
  • Retirement and estate planning
  • Business valuations
  • Employee benefit consulting and administration
  • Succession planning
  • Litigation support

Let our accounting, tax, business consulting, financial consulting and employee benefits personnel prepare an individualized solution.
