Those that have worked as business managers in franchise new vehicle dealerships as well as non-dealership businesses will confirm… dealership accounting is unique. So are the taxes. A dealer for an auto group with dealers in the U.S. and another country once told me, “we’re using a Big 4 firm for our U.S. dealership financial statement audits because of our foreign points, but they don’t know automotive accounting”. That’s a shame. Over the years, Roger Rossmeisl, combined with the Kho & Patel Automotive Services Group, have represented over one hundred dealerships ranging in size from single point stores to those part of multi-dealership groups. Combining these years of experience, a wide range of services are available to you.
