We were serviced by a large national accounting firm for many years before we decided to switch to Anchin. Not only was the move painless and the transition seamless, but we didn’t realize what we were missing. The attention to detail of Marc Federbush, Josephine Lau and their team is unmatched, and they are always accessible to us. Not only do they provide us with our accounting and tax needs, but they rapidly have become true business advisors and have acted as a sounding board on a regular basis. Their work is comprehensive, professional and timely. We are extremely pleased knowing that Anchin will always do their best to look after our business and drive it forward. Making the move to Anchin proved to be an excellent decision for our company. ”
Michael and the Anchin team are available anytime we need for consultation and guidance, and help to coordinate with all services Anchin has to offer. Their level of professionalism and personal involvement with our ownership is outstanding. I also appreciate that Anchin team members work together as a team, not individual silos. I can have a question on accounting, taxes, or on one of the many government programs that came out during the pandemic, and I always feel I have a great team behind me working and coordinating together. The fact that Anchin has trust and estate specialists, and seamlessly coordinates with the tax team, is very helpful, as is the insight I receive from Anchin on how to work with our banking partner on credit facilities.”
We have been with Anchin for 30+ years, and are grateful for the assistance and advice Anchin provides us. They have an excellent understanding of our business and they keep us up to date with the voluminous law changes on a real time basis. They have provided us with invaluable suggestions and recommendations throughout the years, specifically surrounding business succession planning, valuation work and entity structuring. We can’t stress enough the importance of having Michael Belfer, Mark Schneider, Michael Mittiga and the rest of the Anchin team on our side.”
We recently changed accounting firms and hired Anchin. The transition was seamless, and we believe we made the right choice for many reasons. They understand our business and have leveraged firm resources to help us with a variety of other business needs. They roll up their sleeves and have quickly become true business advisors. The quality of their work is un-matched by previous service providers. We are very happy we made the move.”
As an operator, I have found accounting and tax excellence to be imperative to the integrity of scaling a business. Greg and his team have continuously provided high quality support that is unparalleled to our clients and portfolio brands. Start-up, mid-size, family business or one looking for an exit, I have experienced the high caliber work of the Anchin team and wouldn’t dream of aligning with different accounting partners - through growth times or war times they are your partners! Whether it’s tax savings, strategic accounting advice in investment, equity grants, or just running a business in these crazy times, it was Anchin’s relationship that directly led to one of my company’s receiving a needed loan. I am continuously impressed with Greg and team’s passion and dedication to their client partnerships!”
