Olson, Clough & LeBlanc, Ltd. has been providing tax, accounting, and consulting services for manufacturing clients for over 80 years, and we take pride in being unique.  Unique in a way that most other CPA firms with manufacturing experience cannot be.   You see, we guarantee extensive partner involvement and interaction with all manufacturing 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, 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 manufacturing business.  As business owners, you take great pride in the customer service you provide.   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.

Manufacturing Services:

Tax Planning & Preparation

Today's tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple manufacturing 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 their 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 company.

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 manufactuerers 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 your own business is exciting and thrilling.  It's what comes after the excitement and thrill has worn off that dictates whether a new manufacturer will be successful or not.  We can help you avoid the common pitfalls that many new small business owners may encounter when starting their new venture.

Internal Controls

At times you may need a trained outside professional to evaluate your company'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.
