Vehicle Dealerships

Operating a vehicle dealership is a unique challenge. You must have proper capital, leadership, management and a solid employee base. In 2016, US light vehicle sales reached 17.5 million. The past seven years have been the longest period of new-vehicle sales growth in more than a century.

Allen, Gibbs & Houlik, L.C., has extensive experience with dealership valuation, business interruption claims, succession planning, and LIFO conformity requirements. We have serviced large complex families of dealerships for more than 30 years. We can create value with proper inventory accounting, and cost segregation studies. In addition, we are one of the few CPA firms to perform annual audits of dealerships for more than 25 years.
