The primary services we provide include:
Auditing & Attestation
Regular auditing and attestation help provide assurance for critical business decisions, improve internal controls and meet third-party reporting requirements. LSL CPAs can advise on the appropriate level of audits, reviews or compilations according to business or organizational needs. Our experience with government accounting standards, not-for-profits and closely held businesses supports your annual or single audit and attest requirements. We can act as a third-party auditor or as an extension of your organization for oversight and monitoring in accordance with GAAP, employee benefit plans and requirements such as OMB Circular A-133 and uniform guidance.
Serving closely held, mid-sized businesses, many of which have interests throughout the country and internationally, LSL CPAs is the go-to team to consult directly with owners or their trusted leadership team and advisors. We communicate based on your personal style and schedule, including in-person meetings for strategic planning or staff training and oversight. As your business grows and anticipates transitions, LSL CPAs stays one step ahead to provide the reporting, industry insights and resources to guide you. This includes concerns like financial staff recruitment, data security or fraud mitigation.

LSL CPAs provides comprehensive tax services. We serve individual owners, partnerships, corporations, LLCs, government entities and not-for-profits. Tax minimization and planning strategies lead to a variety of consulting projects, including entity selection, sales and gift tax considerations, benefits, real estate and business transactions, multi-state requirements and personal income or estate tax planning. We handle tax research and provide representation with state and federal tax authorities.

Cost Segregation Studies
Whether you are building, remodeling, expanding, or purchasing a facility, a cost segregation study can help increase your cash flow. Many property owners do not take advantage of these provisions and end up paying federal and state income taxes sooner than they need to. Our cost segregation group combines the expertise of engineers and construction specialists with experienced accounting professionals who have a fine-tuned knowledge of tax law.
International Tax Accounting
Cross-border business brings great opportunity–but also complexity. LSL can help you mitigate your tax exposure and increase your chances for success. No matter where you operate or trade in the global economy, understanding international tax systems can enhance your returns and align with your future business plans.
