Retail

Technology has transformed the retail experience for customers as well as dramatically altered the business practices and operations of our retail-related clients.  We are long-time advisors and accountants to retailers of all sizes, from mom-and-pop, brick and mortar shops and Internet-based entrepreneurs to established chain stores seeking opportunities to improve competitiveness and profitability.

Clear Financial Advising, Inc.’s engagements with consumer and industrial retail clients include a wide range of tax and advisory services.

Retailers typically face a variety of issues and challenges, which include real estate and lease agreements, tax credits, inventory management, fraud prevention, financing, licensing and royalties, customs enforcement, and multistate and international tax compliance.

When working with retail clients, we offer a big-picture perspective that considers existing economic conditions, cash flow, and projections we make based, in part, on our decades of experience within business and retail communities.

Business planning is essential to retail success.  In our advisory and consulting capacity, Clear Financial Advising’s partners draw upon their vast exposure to best practices from retailers across a range of industries.  Benchmarking analysis plays an important part in the business plans we develop, as we work in concert with clients.  Clear Financial Advising’s business planning consultants effectively blend risk mitigation with flexibility and alternative approaches, which help retail clients, take full advantage of timely opportunities.
