Jerry: So, we're going to make the post office pay for my new stereo, now?
Kramer: It's a write-off for them.
Jerry: How is it a write-off?
Kramer: They just write it off.
Jerry: Write it off what?
Kramer: Jerry all these big companies they write off everything.
Jerry: You don't even know what a write-off is.
Kramer: Do you?
Jerry: No, I don't.
Kramer: But they do - and they are the ones writing it off.

Meeting the needs of small and mid-market businesses requires a thorough understanding of business operations, and the interplay of those operations with the U.S. tax code. We also have significant experience assisting clients with mergers and acquisitions, raising capital finances, and preparing them to offer publicly traded securities. Our experience has led us to develop specialty practice areas including the application of Subchapter K of the Internal Revenue Code ("IRC") to complex partnership allocations, the implementation of the loss limitation rules of IRC Section 382, the application of the rules related to tax free reorganizations under Subchapter C of the IRC, and compliance with the complex and often misunderstood rules of related to international tax in Subchapter N of the IRC, all of which can be of great benefit to our business clients.
The cornerstone of our service philosophy is the recognition that the real value of a professional advisor is never measured only by the advisor’s technical skills. Instead, our philosophy combines superior technical expertise with a full understanding of the company’s business and goals, producing a long-term relationship with Comyns, Smith as its trusted financial advisor. Our clients have a service partner who becomes intimately familiar with their business and account and is the leading CPA on their account throughout the firm’s engagement. This continuity is paramount to the success of our service philosophy and distinguishes us from other accounting firms.
Our Clientele We serve an extremely broad base of clients. Our clientele consists of both business clients and individuals. Because most of our business clients are closely held or family owned, we recognize that tax and business planning must take into account not just the business, but the owners as well. Our business clients run the gamut of industries and organizational types, from sole proprietorships to consolidated C-corporations. We work with many pass-through entities, such as partnerships, limited liability companies, and S-corporations. We serve clients in many industries, including real estate, manufacturing, construction, high technology, healthcare, employee benefit plans and ERISA, leasing, financial and professional services, wineries, private foundations, not-for-profit foundations, collective bargaining organizations, franchise companies, automotive repair, distribution, technology, restaurants and hospitality, exporters, and retail. We serve clients with multi-state operations, as well as clients with both in-bound and out-bound international operations.
In working with our individual clients, we recognize that the CPA is one member of a team of advisors and we work to coordinate the tax aspects of your personal situation with your other advisors – be they estate planners, financial planners, investment advisors, or others.
