Michael T. French, CPA

DIRECTOR – Tax  & Small Business

 

Meet Michael
Mediator | Collaborator | Detail Oriented | Family Guy

 

Michael French is a long-term member of the BLS family; he came to the company as an intern in 1980.
Managing the affairs of many of our family-owned business clients possessing multiple entities gives
Michael the edge on reducing complexity to understanding.

Relationships are at the center of Michael’s effective financial advice; overcoming challenges and monitoring
day-to-day decisions with clients in closely held businesses means knowing them as individuals at least
as well as he understands the P&L. When you want to weave disparate entities, details and goals into one
firm tapestry of tax advantage, Michael’s your guy. He’s got answers to all of your questions, whether you
are adding partners, creating a succession plan or getting financing.

Perspectives from Michael

“You call an architect when you want to build a building, and an attorney when legal advice is necessary,
why not call your accountant whenever a money decision is made?”

“Let’s help you make money easily and spend it intelligently. Then let’s sit at the table and break bread.”

    • Compensation Issues – Revisited

      We are more than halfway through the retirement plan audit season and we have noticed a number of common errors occurring with compensation. I previously discussed these issues in my blog series “Compensation: The Missing Link - Part 1” and "Compensation: The Missing Link - Part 2," but we want to revisit the issue, since we are seeing this error occur on a rather consistent basis.

    • Back to School with Charity Navigator

      School has officially started across the country, and it looks like students won’t be the only ones who will be graded out of 100 points this year. Charity Navigator, a nonprofit organization that evaluates charities in the United States and compares them to charities with similar causes, recently changed their rating system from a 70-point scale to a 100-point scale.
