SIMIONE MACCA & LARROW (SM&L) LLP is a dynamic and growing organization with roots tracing back to 1973, and with offices today in Hartford and New Haven Counties. We are a licensed firm of Certified Public Accountants which serves a diverse client base with accounting, auditing, tax and management advisory services. Each of our principals is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Connecticut Society of Certified Public Accountants. At SM&L, we take pride in the reputation we've developed for integrity, professional excellence and commitment to service.
In addition to our growing clientele throughout Connecticut, SM&L provides a full range of services to clients in Massachusettss, Rhode Island, New York, California and Florida; we also provide consulting services on a national basis.
Providing quality service in the areas of accounting, taxation, regulatory compliance and management consulting to closely-held businesses has represented an important segment of our practice since "day one." Simione Macca & Larrow offers a broad range of professional services to clients in a variety of industries including auditing and financial reporting, management and computer consulting, litigation services, valuation services, mergers and acquisitions, "financial planning", and marketing consulting. We provide a full range of tax services including planning, compliance, and representation before state and federal tax authorities. Members of our firm have also provided accounting, auditing and advisory services to various departments of the State of Connecticut.
Our service concept requires significant "on-site" participation by management personnel responsible for each engagement. This allows us to discuss various key aspects of the engagement with management in a timely and accurate manner and to provide the supervision necessary for competent and cost-effective completion of the engagement. SM&L believes continuity of engagement staff is essential for providing cost-effective service.
An important aspect of our practice, and the attribute differentiating us from many other accounting firms which focus on a historical perspective, is our approach in rendering our Advisory Services. This concept evolved from two distinct philosophies: the historical and analytical basis of traditional accounting and the entrepreneurial management style of closely-held businesses. Bringing these two philosophies together in a single advisory function allows SM&L to offer sound financial management counsel through our unique group of consultants. We actively serve as a catalyst and render technical assistance during the strategic planning process, and counsel business owners during the difficult times of business commencement growth, merger, acquisition and divestiture negotiations. We also focus on issues which are unique to closely-held businesses, such as ownership continuation within the family.
Our Advisory Services to Management division has undertaken a number of successful engagements including assisting in the evaluation, selection and implementation of appropriate management information systems; authoring procedures manuals; introducing Activity Based Costing systems; assisting franchisers with setup, application and operations; business valuations, mergers and acquisitions; banking and financing; strategic planning; and, participation on advisory boards. Our professional staff has significant experience with a variety of management information systems and administrative procedures, both in your industry and in others, which will allow us to refine your internal record-keeping functions to insure the highest level of utilization, timeliness and accuracy. SM&L has also developed comprehensive business plans, financial forecasts and financing proposals for our clients and assisted in their presentation to prospective lenders and investors.
