Peterson Sullivan has deep roots in the dealership industry.  Sixty years ago when the firm began, it was as an automotive accounting firm.  Since then, we have broadened the dealership industries we work in, but our expertise and passion are still evident.

Throughout the Puget Sound area, we work with more than 100 dealerships to reduce risk, identify opportunities, and leverage growth opportunities.  We have a team of highly experienced professionals whose sole focus is on the auto industry.  They not only assist with compliance issues but also provide the advice and support needed to keep the dealership in peak operating condition.

Beyond the day-to-day accounting, we are also heavily involved with the AutoCPA Group.  This national organization brings together the most skilled CPAs who are highly specialized in the auto industry.

Whether you own a single location representing one brand or multiple locations representing various brands, Peterson Sullivan has you covered.
