Stay Current on Manufacturing Industry Trends

The certified public accountants and business advisors at LSL CPAs focus on the opportunities and strategies that can help Manufacturing and Distribution owners, CFOs and controllers keep costs in line and reduce taxes. We also help you explore incentives such as IC-DISC and empowerment zones to remain competitive long-term.

Whether your company sells mainly in Orange County and the greater SoCal region or is involved in multi-state and international commerce, LSL CPAs is experienced with the tax, assurance and cost-saving measures that make sense for you. We assist a range of manufacturers and distributors, from computer, medical device and plastic molding manufacturers to machine shops, printing suppliers, oil distributors and more.

Our services range from simple tax reporting, manufacturing accounting and assurance support to more sophisticated tax planning, business advisory and strategic planning services. For example, we consult with executives on budgeting and forecasting, KPI reporting, pricing support, inventory management strategies and planning for equipment purchases or a new location. From simple improvements in policies and procedures to the complex discussions of merger and acquisition or succession, LSL CPAs guides you through every business stage.
