Manufacturing & Distribution

Change is everywhere. The pandemic accelerated changes we were already seeing in manufacturing and distribution.

Manufacturers and distributors face unique challenges. Many years of direct experience means we can provide our clients with valuable guidance, including best practices, to improve operations and their ability to better analyze performance and identify risks.

Globalization and automation are just a few of the trends bringing real impact – both beneficial and challenging – to the market. And that’s not even considering the volatility in source materials and related transportation costs, or the challenge of finding skilled labor.

How can you stay in the lead?

That’s what we’re here for. We help manufacturing and distribution companies evaluate their processes, distribution channels, team members and infrastructure to increase profitability, while protecting against large scale supply chain disruptions.

Our services typically result in:

  • Improved cash collections
  • Lean manufacturing
  • Accurate job costing
  • Decreased domestic and international tax burden
  • Efficient audits
  • Real-world application of new accounting standards
  • Stronger cybersecurity
  • Improved eCommerce

What is your manufacturing outlook for the year ahead?

Whether your business is meeting revenue goals or falling short, there are always opportunities to benefit from a performance improvement plan. We have decades of experience analyzing businesses, identifying opportunities and tailoring solutions to maximize value.

Does your company innovate or streamline resources to boost efficiency? Repetitive manual tasks like inventory tracking can be expensive and labor intensive. The right optimization can help you avoid business disruptions, increase accuracy, improve resource planning and lower costs.

Is your business optimizing tax opportunities and transactional value?

Our highly specialized tax specialists assist with tax planning and analysis, multi-state tax compliance and consulting, debt allocation, tax deferral strategies and more.

We stay up to date on the latest tax-related developments in your industry to help you navigate any impact on your business.

Has your business developed a new product or service? If so, we can find opportunities for a business like yours to save thousands of dollars by qualifying for a Federal Research Credit (also known as R&D Credit.)

Also, we can help you take advantage of the new Foreign-derived intangible income (FDII) incentive to reduce your U.S. tax burden for corporations with income that comes from exporting products tied to intangible assets, such as patents, trademarks, and copyrights, held in the United States, or perform services for foreign persons.

In addition, we can help you analyze the effect of the new GILTI inclusion, and foreign tax credit associated with income earned in foreign corporations. Or help you with compliance when a transfer pricing study is needed.
