Business Planning

Your business plan is more than just a tool to secure the financing your company needs to grow and prosper. It’s a road map for your business’s overall success. Jones & Kirkpatrick’s professionals offer support in all phases of planning — from background research and financial analysis to consulting on core decisions impacting your business, now and in the future.

Buying & Selling Your Business

Properly structuring a purchase or sale is a critical step in the process of buying or selling a business. Our experienced CPAs will guide you through the acquisition/disposition process. We’ll work with your other professional consultants — addressing and analyzing all critical issues involved, from your cash flow to your tax considerations.

Business Consulting

Our business consulting services are designed to give you the kind of ongoing professional insight and guidance you need to maintain success and profitability.
