Dealership Accounting & Financial Services

More than 130 auto, truck and equipment dealerships rely on BKD for advice on accounting, tax and general business issues. Our solutions help dealers make smart business and financial decisions that can improve profitability and streamline operations. We can do the same for you.

As a national CPA and advisory firm, BKD has professionals with significant dealership experience. We know dealerships are different from other businesses, and you won’t have to train our staff about the unique aspects of running a dealership.

In addition to the traditional accounting and tax solutions you would expect from a CPA firm, BKD offers other services that can help protect and grow your business. For example, our certified fraud examiners can help you reduce the risk of fraud damaging your operation.

You also may need to have your dealership valued as part of a sale or ownership succession plan or need guidance on selecting and implementing a new computer system. Perhaps you’re looking at an exit strategy or need the advice of an experienced investment manager, such as one of our BKD Wealth Advisors professionals.

In all these ways—and more—BKD can help. Here’s a summary of solutions we bring to our dealership clients:
