Our dedicated staff is committed to providing our clients with accounting services that are second to none.   We frequently hear complaints that other accounting firm personnel are inexperienced in dealership issues and lack specific knowledge of dealership accounting systems.  Our expertise in automotive dealerships means we will not waste the valuable time of the dealer company’s employees on meaningless issues or on trying to understand the basic systems and operations of your dealership. 

As part of our commitment to the automotive industry, we complete a comprehensive training program in dealership operations through several national consultants in the industry, including the AICPA, on an annual basis.  We are also members of the Chicago Automotive Trade Association, the Illinois CPA Society, and the AICPA.  Our team brings a broad spectrum of relevant industry experience and a proven track record in working with organizations such as yours.  With a combination of our current General Motors-Motors Holding experience and our skill in servicing privately-owned dealerships groups located in a variety of national markets, The Pomykala Group LLC  has a solid understanding of all dealer-related issues.
