What are business advisory services?

CPA’s are well-placed to provide advice to business owners. Business advisory services range from recommendations, strategies and planning to optimize business profits and minimize risk and costs. At Stern Cohen, we help business owners after looking at their financials and getting an understanding of their goals. We’re the trusted advisor in advisory services!

Why has demand for advisory services increased?

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the business landscape. Innovation, consolidations, mergers and acquisitions are the new normal. More than ever, business owners are in need of guidance, analysis and projections.  At this crucial time, business owners need a strong accounting team, advisors, and tax specialists on your side to ensure the best outcome.

How do I know what kind of business advisory I need?

Great question! Your accountant will be able to make suggestions, highlight opportunities, and uncover potential risk. They can share recommendations and options to advance or safeguard your business. This is why having an experienced and trusted business advisor is so important. We recognize that you are a specialist in your industry, but that you may not have financial training or expertise. That’s why it’s so important to have a full service firm like Stern Cohen on your side.
