Woodbury, NY (PRWEB) February 17, 2014
New York and Long Island CPA firm Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C. discusses characteristics to look for in an accounting firm that will be taking on an ownership dispute case.
Ownership disputes can be stressful and complex. Organizations that are involved in an ownership dispute should seek an accounting firm that has expertise in data mining. The firm should have a team of highly credentialed and experienced forensic accountants and business valuators that have the skills necessary to analyze financial information and present results in a clear and cogent manner.
The accounting firm should also be sensitive to the needs and objectives of the client and have experienced professionals that can assist business owners with shareholder or partner disputes. The firm should have prior experience investigating allegations regarding misappropriation of assets and/or income, untangling complex accounting issues, interpreting key financial contract provisions and determining the value of a business.
Gabe Shurek, Director at Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C. and a member of the firm’s Business Valuation & Litigation Services Group, says, “A business that needs an accountant for an ownership dispute should not just assume that any tax and audit firm can handle the assignment. Ownership disputes may involve a component of forensic accounting and business valuation, so a firm that is experienced and credentialed in both of these areas may be important in your matter. A business should also look for a firm that is technologically advanced, such as one with access to data mining software and information that can investigate the people in addition to the money. This combination of experience and technology can result in an effectively run matter, and can assist in a favorable outcome.”
Gettry Marcus also has a downloadable example of an ownership dispute case study available.
