As I was considering a new business model for my staffing company, I realized that I need guidance and expertise from advisors who know my industry.  I was introduced to two partners at Citrin Cooperman, who are well-known in the staffing industry.  After discussing the business model at our initial meeting, I hired their team and have been with the firm for over 20 years.  As staffing industry experts, their advisement has gone beyond standard accounting services to include life insurance advice, structuring of multi-business accounting reports, shareholder’s agreements, and financing needs.  Citrin Cooperman has always been available to me and I highly recommend their staffing practice team.

We run a family real estate business, and have been working with Ed Roberts and his assistant Joann Heinrich at Citrin Cooperman for several years. After switching accountants several times over the years due to our complicated affairs, we have finally found a team who has the combination of personal service, level of competency, and breadth of experience we need. We have successfully worked with them on a wide variety of issues: everything from monthly bookkeeping of our several different corporate entities; payroll; shareholder withdrawals; payroll tax deposits; annual corporate, personal, and trust tax returns; financial, retirement and estate planning; gifting and business succession planning; and high quality property valuations for IRS discounting and gift tax preparations. They either have excellent in-house help or can refer to others (for example, estate planning attorneys) who also do excellent work.  Additionally, they are a pleasure to work with -- easy to reach despite their large size, friendly, knowledgeable and reliable.  We can't recommend them highly enough!

Before being referred to Citrin Cooperman, my books and accounting had been a mess for years.  I had a horrible experience with my previous accountant who filed my taxes incorrectly and past the deadline.  My previous accountant never really took the time to understand my business and never seemed to have my best interests at heart.  When I was introduced to Michael Iannuzzi, he immediately wanted to get to know me and my business. He took the time to learn the ins and outs of my business and fully understand my tax situation before making any suggestions. From the moment I met Michael and Paul LiRosi, I felt comfortable and appreciated as a client. They explained everything to me in as much detail as I needed, and were happy to answer any questions or concerns. When filing my taxes last year, they came up with a detailed plan as well as several options to reduce my tax burden. They are always happy to jump on a call to explain any confusion and have been instrumental in getting my books back on track. Overall, I’ve been very impressed with their service and expertise and look forward to working with them for years to come.

Before Citrin Cooperman, our accounting was an absolute mess. We have been affiliated with Citrin Cooperman for over 10 years now and continue to find them to be instrumental in providing sound business and financial advice, as well as the best direction for tax and accounting related issues.  Ever since Bob Schneider took over the financial part of the business, profitability is enhanced, everything is streamlined, and there is peace of mind. Citrin Cooperman alone is responsible for the direction of our business turning around. We feel comfortable that any and all information provided by Citrin Cooperman is comprehensively reviewed and presented with professional care.

When we outsourced our IT to Citrin Cooperman Technology Consulting, we worried that we would not enjoy the same responsiveness we always had when our IT was in house.  But with CCTC, it’s as if they were a few doors down the hall.  CCTC anticipates and deals with most potential problems long before they affect our business.  But when problems do occur, they mobilize swiftly and get the issue resolved with minimal downtime, so we can get back to work.  They’re not just responsive, they’re pro-active.

One of the very best business decisions I have made was hiring Citrin Cooperman,  specifically, Michael Tolla as our accounting firm and C.P.A. Citrin Cooperman offers many different services, which Crystal Restoration Services has used a number of. One of the important things we have learned is the importance of an excellent accountant in dealing with banks. Mike Tolla has made all the difference! I couldn’t be happier and I highly recommend the firm of Citrin Cooperman.

As both an organization and an individual, I have been doing business with Citrin Cooperman for over 14 years. We originally sought their assistance with basic business accounting and tax work, but have grown the portfolio we depend on them for over these years. 

They have assisted us with our ability to go International as we have grown, and provided us services including business strategy, succession planning, and have assisted on a personal basis with my own financial and estate planning, besides our initial needs.

They have become a trusted "partner" in our business. The team assigned to us is always available when we need some advice or work, are timely in deliverables, and their work has proven to be an invaluable asset to us as we have grown by 400%+.

As both a business leader and an individual, I have recommended them consistently to my peers in other verticals.
