Given the sheer size and diversity of our state, California more accurately reflects sizeable countries rather than states within countries. In fact, seven countries (Slovenia, Belgium, Austria, Luxembourg, Kosovo, and the Netherlands and Czech Republic) can all fit comfortably within our borders. Likewise, the businesses we at Whyte & Associates partner with reflect such diversity.
The U.S. Small Business Administration notes there are 4.1 million businesses in the state. These businesses span at least 20 industries, from food service and health care to retailers and professional and technical services. Our professionals’ business and finance consulting has supported Rancho Cucamonga and Inland Empire organizations of all types and sizes, from small convenience stores and restaurants to larger dental and health care practices.
We say all of this, because consulting that leverages our team’s considerable tax, accounting, auditing, payroll, and bookkeeping experience is as diverse as the organizations we serve. Needs for consultative insights vary depending on myriad factors, from industry or sector, to existing in-house resources, expertise, and technologies. Furthermore, within an organization, needs can evolve as the firm grows, or moves into its “next phase,” whatever that may be. We are as adept at navigating the legalese associated with forming and incorporating businesses or nonprofits, as we are at guiding you through the dissolution or “next chapter” of an entity – be it transitioning to new ownership, selling to an outside party, or shuttering in a manner that does not expose you to considerable legal risks.
However, there are some “constants” that you can expect, regardless of the specific industry that your business represents, the size of your operation, or the need or service that warrants our focused skills. We take pride in going above and beyond mere “number-crunching.” There is power in the data that we collect, organize, store, manage, retrieve, and record or communicate. That power can be conveyed in three words: “analysis” and “business intelligence.” We take the quantifiable, and “qualify” it; we clearly show you what the numbers mean for your business. From there, we work with you to identify opportunities and areas for improvement.
Whenever we partner with clients, regardless of need, we bring to the partnership or engagement perspective and empathy. After all, we are a family-owned business approaching 70 years of service to our communities. So, we appreciate what you as a business owner are going through. We have been through the ups and downs right alongside our partner-organizations. We and our partners have come out of wartime periods, a series of recessions, and other challenges if not stronger, then at least wiser and more informed by the crisis experience. There is also no substitute for our warm, “family” approach to partnering with your team. Many of our loyal clients see us not as an impersonal “suit” or advisor, but rather as members of their extended families, or an extension of their internal teams. We look forward to getting to know more about you, your organization, team, and family. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
