HOW WE ASSIST
- Profitability, Productivity and Cash Flows – The online accounting tools that we use provide real time information, so you can track key performance indicators that are customized to assist you in managing your business. In addition to the basics like cash flows, we can also provide you with information to assess productivity of your team members and profitability of individual clients and business segments.
- Tax Planning – While tax compliance is critical, we are committed to going beyond that by looking for unique planning opportunities to maximize benefits to all stakeholders. These services can be especially valuable to business owners and individuals going through the process of estate planning or structuring gifts and other transactions.
- Personal CFO Services – This service is ideal for the individual or couple that, while highly compensated , are not able to commit the appropriate level of time to issues like budgeting, reporting and tax planning. The reporting and guidance the service provides allows individuals to focus their time and energy on productive areas or more important matters like family or leisure.
- Regulatory Filing Requirements – In this increasing complex regulatory atmosphere – the risks of noncompliance can jeopardize your business. We will work with you and your compliance team to ensure that you are able to obtain the information you need for your filings, as well as support for this information so you are able to answer questions when they arise.
Why choose Patke?
“Our Investment Firm opened for business in 2010. One of our highest priorities was to find an outstanding Audit Firm who would thoroughly and professionally audit the various hedge funds we created of our limited partners. After an extensive interview process, we engaged Patke. Four years later we couldn’t possible be more pleased. We work with Ron Niemaszyk and James Lensing. They are efficient, timely, polite, thorough and simply put, – the consumate professionals. Both men apply solid logic and intellect to the audit process. No stone is left unturned in confirming all our numbers – but they are fair and reasonable – a rare quality among auditors that we find refreshing and appropriate. I recommend Patke to any investment firm looking for a top-rate Auditor.”
