Having a solid, long-term relationship with a quality tax professional is one of the keys to
successfully managing your business and personal affairs. Giardina & French give detailed
attention and rapid, thorough response to each client. Planning for your next year is as important as preparing your tax return for the past year. Whenever a client encounters a significant or unusual event, we make ourselves available to help deal with the financial issues and plan for tax effects.

Significant tax issues arise with major financial events such as the purchase or sale of a business or a real estate transaction. Giardina and French can identify these tax issues, and assist clients in structuring the transaction to achieve as favorable an outcome as possible.

Financial Reporting services include compilation and review of financial statements for all types
of businesses. When possible, our financial reporting format includes comparative industry
performance statistics, comparative ratio tracking, and other supplemental information designed to enable owners and managers to better manage their businesses. We meet with our clients to discuss the financial reports, trends in major revenue and expense items and implications for the future.

The firm also prepares forecasts and projections for clients in the process of raising equity funds
or obtaining bank loans. As part of this process we review the underlying assumptions with the
client to help assure that the forecast or projection is as realistic as possible and meaningful to
the user.

The choice of business entity is one of the first critical decisions an entrepreneur makes.
Corporation, "S" or "C", partnership, LLC? Sound professional advice will help you make the
right choice.
