The Dealerships Practice at FORVIS works with you to help drive profitability, avoid risk, increase efficiencies, and enhance productivity.
Understanding current, relevant, and upcoming industry trends is a critical component to providing excellent client service in the dealership industry. Internally, dealerships need to manage and grow talent, plan for future acquisitions, and develop innovative technology.
We view performance as a multifaceted component of successfully operating dealerships. From profitability to productivity to benchmarking and beyond, dealers constantly seek enhanced performance.
In addition, dealers face a wealth of risks. Internal threats such as occupational fraud become very real if the dealership’s internal controls are not sound. External threats such as cyberattacks are becoming more prevalent as weaknesses in operating systems and networks are penetrated by hackers. Our professionals can help you identify and assess internal and external risks so that you may implement stronger controls.
We can help you assess your current accounting model, determine whether moving to centralized accounting makes sense for your business, and then assist as you make changes and improvements.
