Funeral Homes & Cemeteries

Because of population trends, the nation's mortality rate is on the rise and the need for companies who serve grieving families has also risen. While there are a handful of national service providers, the majority of memorial providers are privately owned, family-run businesses. In our experience, they are compassionate people working with families during highly emotional times. Their dedication to attending to their clients needs can sometimes detract from their focus on the bottom line. Gunnip works with our clients throughout the year to develop a clear financial picture of their business. We often act as a part-time CFO assisting with daily operational concerns as well as high-level strategic planning.

We offer a broad range of services including:

  • Determining overhead and analyzing purchasing patterns to make adjustments to the General Price List as needed
  • 1099 reporting for cash advance payments on behalf of the estate
  • Consultation in mortuary trusts
  • Depreciation of assets
  • Operational analysis
  • Developing banking relationships
  • Succession planning
  • Tax consultations, strategic planning and preparation
  • Year-end audit, review or compilation of financial statements
  • Accounting operations, systems, procedures and internal control review
  • Outsourced controllership and outsourced accounting
