One feature that sets us apart is how we think. We are CPAs with experience owning and managing other businesses. Ask your CPA if they have owned anything outside of their accounting firm. We understand the pressures of managing inventory or working in an environment where there are moving pieces such as heavy machinery, tools, specialized equipment, products that spoil, and how to manage waste and shrinkage.
Lucke & Associates can help most privately-owned businesses. We can provide guidance to help ensure each step you take is measured. Some of our specific industry experience includes:
- Automobile Dealerships
- Wholesale / Distribution
- Health Care & Medical Providers
We understand that getting professional CFO or Controllership advice is not something that is easy or affordable. If you do not have a CFO or Controller, Lucke can provide fractional CFO or Controllership on an as-needed or permanent part-time basis. In this capacity, we can work with your bank, manage the accounting and financial reporting, prepare budgets and forecasts. We will help you better understand and manage the fully loaded costs of products and services, which will aid in your pricing decisions.
Your Accounting System is Key
The accounting significantly impacts success. If a company’s accounting systems are not capturing data in the right accounts, or the chart of accounts is not detailed enough, the information that goes on the income statement, balance sheet, and management reports will be incorrect. That information then flows through to the tax return, which is also impacted by decisions made in how the accounting transactions are handled.
Do not risk your business on a part-time, bookkeeper. Let us provide oversight of your in-house accounting or outsource the accounting function to us. If needed, we can set-up the proper accounting system or look to refine the system you have in place.
