About Miles Consulting Group
Our professionals have experience with “Big Four” accounting firms and industry. Additionally, Miles Consulting maintains many relationships in other functional areas of accounting and tax and in virtually all industries. Our experience in general state tax consulting (including sales tax and income/franchise tax), California Enterprise Zone projects, nexus reviews, taxability studies, and other multistate tax services, allows us to provide quality service in many areas of state tax.
We provide a full range of services, designed for our clients. At Miles Consulting, you won’t find a “one-size-fits-all” approach to client service. While we have proven processes, they are customized to clients’ unique needs. We will work with your staff but we will not overburden them - we are aware of the time constraints placed upon in-house staffs and design our workplans ahead of the project. We welcome the opportunity to work in tandem with our clients’ operations personnel and internal and external accounting and legal staffs.
Because we do not perform attest services for our clients, Miles Consulting is able to operate clearly within guidelines for independence required by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although firms who provide attest and non-attest services may, in fact, operate those services independently, it is both the “actual” and the “appearance” of independence standards with which public companies must concern themselves.
Tested Processes and Documentation
We have a well-developed and tested process for identifying and securing benefits for our clients. We leave behind the “roadmap” and documentation of our process that might be necessary for audits and future compliance. This documentation is particularly important in today’s regulatory environment.
Partnering with Clients
Over the years, we have forged lasting relationships with clients that span many years and have resulted in continued follow-up work for which we are very grateful and proud.
Miles Consulting is flexible in both fee arrangements and project management. We have the experience and professionalism that you would expect from an experienced firm, without the burdens of the large firm pricing structures. Pricing arrangements are tailored to each individual client and situation - there are no hidden costs. Because we are not a large cumbersome organization, with many layers of staff or management, we are able to quickly communicate any necessary change in the scope of your engagement, thus removing the time and fee uncertainties.
Miles Consulting engagement letters state that we will hold all information received in strictest confidence. We are also more than willing to sign any confidentiality agreements our clients’ request.
Upon request, we will be happy to provide client references. Many of these references are from long standing associations with present and former clients that may span several years.
Miles Consulting participates annually in the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”, California Society of CPAs - Silicon Valley annual golf tournament sponsoring local scholarships, and the Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance annual scholarship programs. As part of the company’s 10 year anniversary in 2012, we donated $10,000 to local charities.
