Build on Solid Financial Ground
“Crunching Numbers” for me is only one of the many things I appreciate about HLB Gross Collins. Over the many years of working with Pauline, who I consider my accountant and friend, I have developed a relationship which reflects trust and loyalty. I know she has my best interest as a basis for all her advice. Caring may be the key word. She is always available to guide my decisions in a supportive and professional manner. I consider myself fortunate to be a client.
As the construction industry faces unique challenges and opportunities, having a team of financial experts in place with a thorough knowledge of the industry-specific issues is critical. Understanding and following best practices is imperative for success specifically in the following areas:
- Accurate accounting and financial reports necessary for effective business operation
- Accurate estimates and comparison with actual results
- Effective income tax planning in order to avoid paying too much
- Options for increasing banking and bonding limits
- Effective use of new technology
- Quality controls in place to protect the business from losses by poor business practices, theft, or bad administrative controls
Contractors must maintain solid relations with the banking, bonding and insurance communities that serve this industry. Financial teams must have specific knowledge as to the surety and bonding needs of contractors.

With international dealings, not all CPA firms are created equal. Frustrated with complicated and inaccurate advise by our previous CPA, we were referred to HLB Gross Collins. HLB has been there to get to know who we are and to help us grow along the way by making suggestions and referrals that work for our business. No question is too small or large, all receive respectful and timely replies. The personal, reliable and professional services that Iliana and HLB staff have provided has been beyond measure, in the more than 11 years since we made the change.

As a former principal at HLB Gross Collins, I am pleased to continue to be able to work with the firm’s professionals as the Chief Financial Officer of a long-time client of the firm. Serving a complex operation such as Mirasco’s is challenging, and Michael Bohling and Iliana Malinov meet that challenge by constantly thinking about our business and being in regular contact with me. Along with the managers, Adil Amou and Michelle Jenkins, they keep us current on reporting and tax developments. Our international scope requires advisors who are constantly thinking about all the implications of our transactions, and the HLB team does a great job bringing us ideas and responding to our questions.
