Manufacturing & Distribution

Our experience is reflected in the numbers; 1/3 of our clients are Manufacturers & Distributors.

PKF Mueller has developed a dedicated Manufacturing & Distribution Team that is focused on the industry’s ever-changing landscape, existing and new financial regulations, and the answers to address the financial questions that arise from these changes. We can help with financial audits, tax planning, and other specialty tax minimization determinations such as R&D credits, cost segregation studies, and assistance in nexus determination and subsequent liabilities or savings. With over 30% of our business clients as Manufacturers & Distributors, we understand the challenges and the pressing issues of this business segment. We are proud to participate in a dynamic industry that produces business owners with strong entrepreneurial spirits.
