Although every company's needs and concerns are a bit different, below is a list of some common questions and concerns when choosing consultants to meet your company needs:
Scope of Refunds - Many consultants, large consulting firms and small independent competitors, are scoping refunds leaving significant refunds unclaimed. There are various reason, but the most likely reason is to maximize their return on the project. Not your return. Affeldt Consulting is dedicated to maximizing YOUR returns. We consider this our primary goal and make it a decision factor in everything we do for your project. Affeldt consulting has, on more than one occasion, reviewed claims by other firms and identified, filed for and recovered over $100,000 refunds they missed! There is no excuse for these short-comings. This should not happen I will not allow it to happen on our engagements, We will file for all eligible refunds, as long as the amount is warranted by our effects as a net gain for our clients, we will file it. If it saves you money, we will do it.
Expertise and Experience - I have worked on behalf of companies in sales and use tax for over 24 years. Affeldt Consulting has filed hundred of claim in Minnesota. And over fifty claims in over twenty other states including: California, Texas, Wisconsin, Iowa and Indiana. We have knowledge and consulted about laws in over forty states. If you have a location, we likely already have experience. If not, we will gain the expertise to meet your needs.
National Network - This is a common issue that the large firms will try to sell you on. In reality, it is an unwarranted cost, and leads to mismanagement and poor service. A national network is only valuable as the local expertise. In today's information age, we can research any issue in any jurisdiction and locate the statutes, rulings, court cases and any other information appropriate to your issues. A national network is there way of jacking up fees by bringing in other offices without providing a return for those fees.
Personal Service - We are the company. We are the only employees and will work endlessly to meet your needs. Any concern you have is our concern. You will not engage my services and get somebody else for the project. I will handle everything, giving you confidence and comfort that you will get the best possible service, attention and experience possible.
Fees - Our fees are lower than all out competitors. Why? We made a decision a long-time ago to provide value to our clients to ensure they will return to us for many years to come. We have flexible fee structures including the best of both worlds - typically the lesser of our hourly fees and expenses and our hourly fees.
