Olson, Clough & LeBlanc, Ltd. has been providing tax, accounting, and consulting services for dealerships for over 30 years, and we take pride in being unique.  Unique in a way that most other CPA firms with Dealership experience cannot be.   You see, we guarantee extensive partner involvement and interaction with all Dealership clients.  Bigger firms cannot provide this "hands-on" type of service.  Service which is possible because we are not interested in being the biggest firm, but only the best.  We prefer to be small,  flexible, and ultimately, more valuable to you the client.  As a result, we are able to offer high quality services at reasonable fees.

We understand what it means to run a Dealership. As business owners, you take great pride in providing your customers with great service.  At Olson, Clough & LeBlanc, Ltd., our approach to you is much the same.  We are personable, knowledgeable, and strive to build  long-term relationships with all of our clients.


Dealership Services:

Tax Planning & Preparation

Today's tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple dealership return can become burdensome and complex. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled.

Planning is the key to successfully and legally reducing your tax liability. We go beyond tax compliance and proactively recommend tax saving strategies to maximize your after-tax income.

Our business and individual clients  pay the lowest amount of taxes allowable by law because we continually look for ways to minimize your taxes throughout the year.

Audits - Reviews - Compilations

Stockholders, creditors, and private investors often need assurance that the financial statements accurately represent the financial position of a dealership.

Generally, stockholders, creditors, or private investors have different levels of risk tolerance, so we provide three levels of assurance to meet their needs.

Planning & Consulting

A quarterly or annual business review will provide an opportunity to discuss significant trends, opportunities, and business performance relative to other dealerships in the area. A business review will also allow for a more detailed discussion on specific topics important to you and your business.

New Business Formation

Opening a new, or expanding a existing dealership is exciting.  It's what comes after the excitement has worn off that dictates whether a dealership will be successful or not.  We can help you avoid the common pitfalls that many new business owners may encounter when starting their new venture.

Internal Controls

At times you may need a trained outside professional to evaluate your dealership's internal controls to ensure proper handling of resources and to protect yourself from employee theft.

We can assess your internal control systems to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of your operating procedures. Then we make recommendations that help your company become stronger and more profitable by correcting any weaknesses we find.
