Governmental agencies face various financial challenges and pressures. There is no shortage of concerns that require management’s attention. The key to a successful accounting relationship is finding a firm that meets not only your compliance needs, but also brings perspective and solutions to the other challenges you are facing. Most accounting firms are capable of completing compliance work but it takes an experienced provider with knowledge of the government environment to take it to the next level. Only a firm with significant experience, strong technical knowledge, and a broad view of your organization can make this happen.

Working with Belfint, Lyons & Shuman provides a unique opportunity to experience not only the best in service and client care, but also have access to complex advisory services generally offered by national accounting firms. The result is a refreshing blend of seasoned professionals, responsive service, and scalable solutions that drive value beyond the engagement letter. In addition to compliance, we also seek opportunities to improve processes, cost savings, and revenue enhancements through your agency. This is our way of bringing additional value to your team and the engagement.
