Distribution

The many businesses that fall under the distribution category and their tax and accounting needs are never exactly the same. We closely follow each discipline and are prepared to handle a variety of situations. By having a thorough understanding of the distribution industry, we help our clients address concerns such as operational and regulatory challenges, labor and employment matters and antitrust and competitive pricing laws.

Whether it’s a privately held manufacturer, shipping company, warehouse or retailer, our distribution team can effectively create a plan that encompasses all of the requirements of this diverse industry:

  • Financial statement accounting and auditing services
  • Tax consulting
  • Operational improvement services
  • Strategic planning
  • Due diligence acquisition assistance
  • Management succession

All of these issues become far easier to process when guided by members of the Pease & Associates team. We effectively research industry requirements and responsibilities, then provide our manufacturing and distribution clients with up-to-the-minute support and advice.

Evidence of our expertise in this area can be found in the book Mergers & Acquisitions for Distributors; Expert Advice for Buyers & Sellers, to which the firm’s President Joe Pease contributed his vast experience in this area.

Your team, core values and approach to client service are impressive.  Jennifer and Rob did a terrific job for us, which reinforced our decision to choose your firm.  Thank you!
