Exceeding Expectations. Always. — Business Advisors and CPAs

Manufacturing has long been the backbone of the U.S. economy. In fact, we believe that without it, our country cannot survive. That is why at BatesCarter we consider our role as advisors and planners for manufacturers in the North Georgia and Atlanta area to be vitally important. Our clients range from small, boutique manufacturers to larger industry-specific manufacturers.

Our team of advisors may help your manufacturing business handle such issues as:

  • Tax Credits
  • Sales Tax
  • Multi State Taxation
  • Overhead Management
  • Product Costing
  • Best Practices
  • Loan Projections
  • Equipment Purchasing 


Warehousing and Distribution Accounting

Warehousing and distribution is a key component to any thriving business. Major decisions such as, location for a warehouse based on transportation infrastructure and labor pools are often coupled with a cost analysis of local tax incentive packages. That is where we come in. Not only can we evaluate the offer made for you to relocate, we can also help in targeted-return negotiations. We like win-win deals and find that a win-win is often simply a matter of communication and understanding local tax structure.
You need to know that your CPA is not only abreast of the changes in laws to help you remain compliant but is also able to discuss, dissect and deploy new ideas that keep you competitive and informed. We are looking out for your best interests. Always.
