The Architectural and Engineering Services Group focuses on the specific business issues, financial practices and tax strategies of our A/E clients. Although Anchin has a well-established Construction Industry Services Group, we know that architecture and engineering firms operate from a completely different business model than their counterparts. The following are some of the solutions we offer to bolster our A/E clients’ business and financial position.
Tax Planning and Expertise
Anchin’s tax expertise is ingrained in its Tax and Accounting Departments. We believe it is our audit professionals’ tax knowledge which truly distinguishes Anchin from their counterparts at other firms.
Established Banking and Financial Relationships
Anchin has spent more than 80 years establishing strong relationships within the financial community. Bankers have often expressed to us and to clients their confidence in our financial statements.
Improving Your Bottom Line
We know what it takes to run a professional service firm efficiently and profitability. We often begin the process with an organizational review of your firm designed to improve the overall business operations of your firm.
Budgeting and Forecasting
We do more than simply prepare your financial statements. We help you design the necessary financial reports and then analyze the numbers, indicate trends, and budget and forecast for the months and years ahead.
Succession Planning and Employee Retention/ Recruitment
Architectural and engineering firms often revolve around the strength and personality of its principals, making the need to develop a sound succession plan even more imperative for the long-term future of the firm. Our planning includes the development of employee retention and recruitment programs, including equity and non-equity based compensation plans.
Information Systems (IS) Consulting
Your firm depends on software not just for design capabilities, but for timely and accurate financial reports. Our IS consultants can assist with determining whether your current system meets your needs. Additionally, they can assist with hardware and software selection, including customized software that will enable you to generate reports that indicate profitability by client, project and professional.
