Testimonials From Our Customers
From a contractor in the Philadelphia area:
Our company has been engaged in the commercial construction trade for over 25 years. As a contractor, our business is cyclical and fluctuates dramatically with construction spending in the Tri-state area.

When construction spending and the economy as a whole slowed down, the professionals at Rafter, Lewis & Associates performed an in-depth analysis of our operation. Among other items, they reviewed our estimating and bidding procedures, inventory flow, job costing, and overhead. Their analysis and subsequent counsel to us proved to be both insightful and rewarding. We initiated changes in various aspects of our business which resulted in cost savings, and just as importantly, they worked closely with our in-house personnel to ensure that the changes made were implemented efficiently.

In addition to our regular quarterly meetings, their professionals meet with us annually in December to provide year-end tax planning. They clearly and concisely present the various strategies available to us, advising us of the impact those options will have on our tax liability, as well as on relationships with our lender and bonding agency. As our business consultants, they are always on the cutting edge, not only discussing the ramifications of the present tax laws, but also letting us know how pending legislation will affect us.

We continue to be impressed by their professionalism and responsiveness and believe that they truly are a firm, like ourselves, that is committed to excellence.
From a manufacturer in New Jersey:
As a manufacturer we have undergone tremendous changes over the last several years. Our strongest product line was in a period of steady decline, and we were forced to reengineer the company entirely.

The professionals at Rafter, Lewis & Associates were an invaluable resource during this process. They acted as a sounding board for us, helping us to evaluate critical decisions. We think of them more as business consultants than accountants, as they frequently draw on their work with other companies in the variety of industries to help us deal with issues ranging from human resources to factory production.

Our shareholders were considering a complete corporate restructuring and spin-off of a new corporate entity. This transaction was quite complex and required our lending bank’s approval. Their professionals helped us in presenting the transaction to our bankers in a way that facilitated their understanding and ultimate approval. In addition, by using their extensive tax knowledge, they ensured that the transaction was structured to optimize the income tax effect for our shareholders.

In summary, we feel that they have been a tremendous resource to our company in the past and have helped us lay the ground work for success in the future.
