The Brown Smith Wallace team has played an instrumental role in our company’s continued growth and success. By first learning who we are and our objectives, they then helped us define our needs and execute our vision. Their expertise has already made positive impacts: the insurance consulting services resulted in $80,000 in savings for us and the IC DISC tax idea saved us $600,000 annually. Our board and management team were ecstatic about the change to Brown Smith Wallace. We are so glad to partner with professionals that bring their A-game to every interaction and service.

Each year, we seem to come up with a number of accounting and tax challenges the Brown Smith Wallace team resolves without hesitation, meeting the most demanding timelines. As a $60 million organization with no CPA on staff, we’ve come to trust and rely upon Brown Smith Wallace’s breadth and depth of professional services. In the last year they’ve helped us establish an IC-DISC for our export sales, update our foreign entity transfer pricing policy, review our financial statements, help us complete our 2011 tax return and lead us through an IRS audit—which resulted in no fines or additional tax owed – with outstanding leadership, knowledge and diplomacy.
