Hunt Demarest of Paar Melis and Associates, is qualified to speak on best practices and strategies because Paar Melis and Associates have been providing unparalleled tax and accounting services to the automotive repair industry since 1992. They have over 600 auto repair shop clients. They are knowledgeable about specific tax laws that pertain to repair shops as well as most POS/SMS systems they use. That allows them to help shop owners really understand their financials so they can work together to improve the shop’s profitability.

According to a current client, Brian Moak of “Heart Certified Auto Care” in Chicago, IL, “Paar Melis has been able to really help us master our data at a level that I have not yet been able to do with any other provider that I’ve worked with. Part of the big excitement around working with Paar Melis is that that data is why we think we’ll be able to catapult past our previous record year… I’ve never had the type of partnership that I’m feeling from an accountant before.”
