Schneider Downs has advised automobile dealers on auto dealership accounting and other services for more than 40 years. We know every segment of the dealership business – whether it relates to cash flows, cost containment, inventory control, financing or capitalization. We understand the critical relationship between the front-end and back-end of your business, and can give responsive service and solid results to dealerships of any size, from single-locations to mega-dealerships.

Several years ago we established an Automotive Services Focus Group composed of audit, tax and management consulting professionals who are specifically trained and experienced in matters such as those facing your company. Our Automotive Industry Group members cross departments and meet regularly to ensure efficiencies in the services provided to our clients and discuss issues, regulations and trends affecting the automotive industry. Our automotive specialists annually attend industry-specific conferences and seminars such as the National Auto Dealer Association (NADA) Convention and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) National Auto Dealership Conference, in order to stay abreast of current trends and issues facing auto dealerships.
