ManufacturingManufacturing has long been the backbone of the U.S. economy. In fact, we believe that without it a country cannot survive. That is why at BatesCarter we consider our role as advisors and planners for manufacturers to be vitally important. Our clients range from small, boutique manufacturers in industries as varied as military supplies and candles to larger industry-specific manufacturers in industries like pharmaceuticals and poultry processing.
The usual issues that arise are just as varied – tax credits, sales taxes, multistate taxation, overhead management, product costing, best practices, loan projections, equipment purchasing, and so on. Then, there is the legislative environment, which has equal impact – the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act alone will have business repercussions for many years.
Warehousing and DistributionWarehousing and distribution is a key component of 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.
