Accounting software selection and Implementation

With the number of computerized accounting software packages available for small businesses and individuals growing every day, selecting one that is right for you has become increasingly difficult. Axley & Rode accounting professionals are exposed to many programs through trade journals and evaluate programs through actual use. Our experienced team of professionals can help you choose and implement the system that best fits your needs.

Business Succession Planning

Effective coordination of the transition of your business to your successors is critical to ensure its continued success once you decide to remove yourself from the company's day-to-day operations. With a solid background in tax and other financial matters, Axley & Rode is fully qualified to address the complex issues of business continuation and can assist you in developing a strategically sound plan.

Business Valuation

Many business owners don't know what their business is worth. Without a proper valuation, you could over- or under-estimate the value, leading to a loss or gain. If you are considering new shareholders, negotiating a merger, planning your estate, resolving a business dispute, or dissolving a marriage, a valuation of your business can make all the difference. Axley & Rode can evaluate your business and determine a fair market value.

Cash Flow and Budgeting Analysis

A business can be profitable and still run into trouble due to cash flow issues. Axley & Rode can evaluate your company's financial condition, estimate financing requirements, and track cash-flow sources and uses.

Employee Benefit Plans

Entity Selection

Choosing the appropriate entity for your situation is imperative when setting up a business. The type of entity you select can affect your tax burden and exposure to liabilities. It can also define ownership, roles, and duties in a business reducing misunderstandings among participants. Axley & Rode can help you determine the best entity for your situation.

Estate Trust and Gift Planning

Effective estate planning facilitates the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, provides security for your surviving spouse, and can reduce or eliminate the tax due on the transfer of your business and other assets. For business owners, providing for business continuity and succession of ownership is essential. Axley & Rode can guide you through the complex process of getting your financial affairs in order.

Financial and Retirement Decisions

Fraud Prevention and Detection

Axley & Rode uses accounting and auditing skills to provide an analysis of financial records in conjunction with fraud and theft investigations. Damage measurement methods can be used to determine the extent of financial loss and illegal accounting practices.

Litigation Support

Litigation support involves the quantification of economic damages pursuant to existing or pending litigation using accounting and auditing techniques. Axley & Rode can compile information efficiently to assist in the calculation and documentation of any potential economic loss or damages.
