COLUMBUS OHIO ACCOUNTANTS
The accounting firm was founded as Hirth, Norris and Company, formed in 1976 upon the merger of the Charles W. Hirth Company and James E. Norris, Certified Public Accountant. Prior to the merger the Charles W. Hirth Company had been serving clients in the central Ohio area since 1964 and James Norris had founded his private practice the year prior to the merger.
Hirth Norris & Garrison is available to assist in all phases of the accounting process, from the recording of daily transactions to the preparation of financial statements.
Tax Preparation & Consulting
Tax planning begins early in the year and is crucial to effective decision making. Virtually every business decision has some tax consequence that should be considered.
We provide estate planning services for many of our clients. Our objective is to ensure that the client’s desires are realized. Estate planning must begin early in order to be effective.
Business valuations are prepared as needed. Recently we have conducted valuations for owners both selling and buying businesses and as part of buy/sell agreements between shareholders of the same company.
Non Profit & Governmental Auditing
HNG has always worked with small and medium size non-profit organizations performing accounting and tax services. The rules and regulations governing non-profit accounting and tax requirements are unique.
Employee Benefit Plan Auditing
Clients with more than 100 participants in employee benefit plans, including pension, profit sharing, health and welfare benefit plans, are required to have an audit of the plan on an annual basis.
Onsite Controller and CFO services are available for short and long term periods. These services are typically conducted at our client’s offices and can include one to two days a week or one to two days a month.
Accounting System Design
Our firm helps clients who are just starting in business by working with them to design an effective accounting system. We set up basic check-writing and complete general ledger systems.
Pension & Benefit Plan Consulting
Most clients either have or need employee benefit plans. Hirth Norris & Garrison makes recommendations regarding such plans and helps the client choose one that best suits the company.
When clients are seeking loans or leases, we assist in gathering any needed information. In addition, we can act as the client’s representative in dealings with the bank or financial institution.
Accounting Software Installation
New accounting software can be intimidating. Consequently, we have begun to offer clients assistance with software installation and the initial set-up of accounting data.
Clients often need to look ahead. Whether for adding product lines or the sale of a part of the business, clients may need help budgeting and forecasting.
Agreed upon procedures are a relatively new service provided to any client who needs a specialized investigation. For example, if a client suspects fraud and needs an investigation of cash disbursements.
Simply put, this area includes using our 30+ years as business owners and working directly with business owners to assist the management of a company in meeting their goals and objectives.
