Advisory

Advisory services at Thomas, Judy & Tucker, P.A. come in two types: direct and indirect. Direct advisory occurs when the client receives the valuable advice as their primary deliverable (see list below) and indirect when the client receives the advice in addition to some other accounting service they have contracted for. Firms can only offer this latter service if their people really know and understand the client’s industry and business. We hire, train, and groom people to be able to do just that. The firm helps its clients make use of the financial data, uncovered by the firm, to make better business decisions. In many cases, the firm’s accountants will point out the trend or direction to management. However, we always leave the ultimate decisioning process where it belongs – with our client’s management team.

Providing excellent taxation service is so much more than just annual tax preparation and filing. We work with you throughout the year, generating tax forecasts and planning appropriately to minimize your tax burden when filing season arrives.

We will shape our services to the specific needs of your business or you personally.

 

The firm offers the following to solo practitioners, partnerships, non- publicly traded corporations, and non-profit organizations:

  • New business formation
  • Entity selection
  • Merger and acquisition support

Funding agencies such as United States Department of Agriculture will require a projection in relation to certain loan applications under certain programs that are administered by them. Projection engagements of this nature often include a 5 year projected balance sheet, income statement, statement of cash flows and related footnotes disclosing the signification assumptions used in determining projection amounts.
