Consulting services

Business consulting

Your personal and business success is how we gauge our worth. At Johnson, Glaze & Co. we help identify profitability and growth issues. Then develop practical, technically sound solutions that match your needs.

Owner financial planning

A properly structured financial plan enables you to face any financial challenge that may present itself at each stage of your life. Through the financial planning process, we can help you assess your financial needs and develop strategies that will enable you to achieve your goals and strengthen your financial security. We can also help you interpret any pre-existing financial statements or answer any questions on statements we prepare for you.

Computer systems/accounting software

With the number of computerized accounting software packages available for small businesses and individuals growing every day, selecting one that is right for you has become increasingly difficult. As accounting professionals, we are exposed to most programs through trade journals and actual use. Our experienced staff can help you choose and implement the system that best fits your needs.

Business entity selection

Choosing the form of entity of your business (e.g. “S” corporation, sole proprietor, limited liability company…) is a crucial decision that can have longstanding tax implications, positive or negative. We can assist you in evaluating the pros and cons of each entity type to help you determine the most advantageous form of business for your company.

Business succession planning

Effective coordination of the transition of your business to your successors is critical to ensure its continued success once you decide to remove yourself from the company’s day to day operations. With a solid background in tax and other financial matters, we are fully qualified to address the complex issues of business continuation and can assist you in developing a strategically sound plan.

Buying and selling a business

Structuring the purchase or sale of a business properly is a critical step in the process of buying or selling a business. Our competent staff has experience to guide you through the acquisition/disposition process by addressing such issues as cash flow analysis and tax considerations.

Cash flow analysis

The most common question any leader of a business or non-profit organization asks is “Where did the money go?” That is cash flow analysis in a nut shell. Understanding cash flow is critical to any organization, and we can help. That includes budgeting, projecting, banking and preparation of cash flow statements.

Fraud prevention and detection

With exceptional accounting and auditing skills, we provide an analysis of financial records in conjunction with fraud and theft investigation. Our damage measurement methods can determine the extent of financial loss and illegal accounting practices.

Company retirement planning

Larry GLaze, CPA/CFP® and Michael Blanchard, CPA/ABV have been helping our clients with their businesses and financial planning for more than 20 years.

Successful implementation and periodic review of your financial plan will ensure financial independence during your working years and through your retirement years. Meet with Larry Glaze and Mark Vermillion, our Cerified Financial Planner™s now to make those golden years truly “golden.”  We offer help in creating flexible financial plans to help prepare you for retirement.

Estate, trust and gift planning

Effective estate planning facilitates the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, provides security for your surviving spouse, and can reduce or eliminate the tax due on the transfer of your business and other assets. For business owners, providing for business continuity and succession of ownership is essential. We can guide you through the complex process of getting your financial affairs in order.
