The best decisions are made on the basis of the most accurate data and the most comprehensive analysis.

Manufacturing has long been the core of American business. As one of the most labor- and capital-intensive industries, it’s been especially affected by the shift to a global economy. Decisions are required at a fast and furious pace, and each has a powerful impact on the bottom line. How aggressively can you manage costs without affecting your ability to grow?

At EFPR Group, we dig deeply into the operations of our manufacturing clients. Our focus is on helping you create the processes that will drive extreme profitability.

Focus on the big decisions; the rest follows along

The more we know, the more we can help. Should you be investing now in that new equipment? Is it time to hire proactively? What R&D tax credits should you be taking advantage of?

We find that our clients benefit most from our help in managing cash flow, in analyzing financial results, and in making big decisions about issues like equipment investments, mergers and changes in ownership.

It all comes together easily when you rely on your EFPR Group professional to help you through it. We bring a big-picture look at your financials, plus the experience of having worked with hundreds of manufacturing clients over the years. We speak the language of manufacturing. We know where the minefields are, and how to avoid them. We also have an idea of where the opportunities lie.

Your partner will work with you to establish the goals of the engagement and oversee the team that provides you with day-to-day or project expertise. You’ll find our people to be not just talented but also committed to the success of your business. We come to work every day because it’s a way to exercise our skills in the service of your success.

Expertise across a broad range of financial assistance

Here are just some of the areas in which we have helped our manufacturing clients:

Business Tax Planning & Preparation – Taxes can be one of your biggest expenses, or not. Be sure that they’re handled correctly.

Owners Exit Strategies – It’s never too early to start thinking about your next chapter, and how you’ll wind up this one. We help with the planning, the decision-making, and the execution.

Outsourced Corporate Tax Services – Sometimes it makes little sense to keep a full-time accounting staff to handle such a complex function; outsourcing could be your best bet. We’ll run the analysis to be sure.

Expatriate & Inpatriate Tax Services – If you have employees working overseas, or foreign nationals working in the U.S., rely on us for accurate planning and preparation of their tax returns.

Cost Segregation Studies – The next large investment you make in a building could be a smarter decision if you take advantage of cost segregation tax strategies. Our cost segregation specialty practice includes an engineering partner for an in-depth analysis that helps companies expand wisely.

Financial Statement Audits – The bank requires one. Your suppliers demand one. We make the process as streamlined and painless as possible.

Reviews & Compilations – Sometimes there’s a faster, easier way to satisfy a client, supplier or investor than a full audit.

Employee Benefit Plan Audits – If your organization sponsors your 401(k), 403(b) or other pension plan, and you have more than 100 employees, you know that you’re required to obtain an annual plan audit. We can simplify the process for you.

NYS Empire Zone Incentives – If you’re thinking it’s time to expand, then it’s time to think about Empire Zones. This package of tax incentives is providing a cash flow boon to companies at a time when it’s most needed.

Qualified Emerging Technology Company Incentives – For “next-gen” companies in New York State, the tax credits can be significant, and can cover substantially more than your R&D expenses. Investors in your company can also benefit.

Mergers & Acquisitions – One of the biggest decisions most companies will ever face. We approach it on all levels, from the financial to the cultural to the operational.

Business Valuation – Often the underlying analysis for a wide range of critical business decisions, the valuation should be undertaken by professionals with a deep understanding of the science, and a big-picture understanding of your industry. We have both, and a dedicated team.
