Baker Tilly is a founding member of Auto Team America (ATA), a network of 11 CPA firms that serve 2,000 auto dealerships in North America. The organization recently published the ATA Strategic Vision Statement – Dealerships in 2030, in addition to the 2016 Annual Performance Guidelines.
Baker Tilly is actively involved in Auto Team America and has leadership roles in tax, assurance and business strategy aspects of the group. We believe these reports will provide dealers strong performance metrics to use in their own businesses.
ATA worked in tandem with industry experts to publish a Strategic Vision of Dealership Operations in the Year 2030 report. Dealership principals and managers were also interviewed to provide feedback on the direction and changes they see transpiring in their dealerships and those of their peers. This report is an unprecedented look at the major trends that will impact dealership operations in the future.
The ATA 2016 Annual Performance Guidelines are an accumulation of the member firms’ top performing dealerships in the domestic, import and highline categories. The eleven firms submit their top performers and the results are then averaged across the groups. We believe this achieves a best of breed blend for other dealers to use in analyzing their own store performance.
