Anyone get an email from Hunt Demarest, CPA claiming they are automotive CPA?


Recommended Posts

This is the email I got and it sounds tempting...

 

Could your shop be eligible for a bigger refund?

Of the 5 free tax reviews we have done in the last couple months, we have found errors that resulted in tax savings of over $85,000. Let me know if you’d like to send your taxes in for a free review. We will select one shop to review anonymously on a live webinar that will also give some insight on how and what to look for on your own taxes.

 

Think that you have been paying too much in taxes? It doesn’t hurt to have another set of eyes and it could mean some $$$ back in your pocket!

 

To get started, just reply back to this email, "Tax Review" and we will reach out to get the information needed to begin.

My bet is that within 10 minutes of talking to this person, you're going to know if he's there to help YOU or HIMSELF. 

You've got absolutely nothing to lost to respond - and maybe lots to gain. 

I'm pretty sure that when you've done a lot of companies in the same industry you get to see where shop owners make mistakes. I see it with all the shop owners I talk to - and I talk to shop owners virtually every day. Not picking on anyone - it's just that like any business, shop owners start looking at what others in the market are doing, and then do the same thing. 

That's what I would call "Incest"

You would be smart to get another opinion - if nothing else. 

Hope this helps!

      It always amazes me when I hear about a technician who quits one repair shop to go work at another shop for less money. I know you have heard of this too, and you’ve probably asked yourself, “Can this be true? And Why?” The answer rests within the culture of the company. More specifically, the boss, manager, or a toxic work environment literally pushed the technician out the door.
      While money and benefits tend to attract people to a company, it won’t keep them there. When a technician begins to look over the fence for greener grass, that is usually a sign that something is wrong within the workplace. It also means that his or her heart is probably already gone. If the issue is not resolved, no amount of money will keep that technician for the long term. The heart is always the first to leave. The last thing that leaves is the technician’s toolbox.
      Shop owners: Focus more on employee retention than acquisition. This is not to say that you should not be constantly recruiting. You should. What it does means is that once you hire someone, your job isn’t over, that’s when it begins. Get to know your technicians. Build strong relationships. Have frequent one-on-ones. Engage in meaningful conversation. Find what truly motivates your technicians. You may be surprised that while money is a motivator, it’s usually not the prime motivator.
      One last thing; the cost of technician turnover can be financially devastating. It also affects shop morale. Do all you can to create a workplace where technicians feel they are respected, recognized, and know that their work contributes to the overall success of the company. This will lead to improved morale and team spirit. Remember, when you see a technician’s toolbox rolling out of the bay on its way to another shop, the heart was most likely gone long before that.
