The Cerini Difference

Cerini & Associates, LLP is a full service accounting firm with a staff of nearly fifty, five partners, and a foundation built on value-added ideas and integrity. We serve many industries, including healthcare, nonprofit, technology, special education, startups, school districts, and construction, among many others. Our services include assurance (auditing and related), tax compliance and audit defense, merger and acquisition support, operational and internal control reviews, labor union defense, cost report (CFR) consulting and preparation, and funding source (mainly State Education Department, or SED) defense.

Book Fairies Collaboration

Cerini & Associates, LLP, a leading audit, tax, and business advisory Firm serving both nonprofit and for-profit businesses, increases its commitment to the nonprofit sector, by launching a collaboration with The Book Fairies, Inc. – a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that collects gently used books and distributes them to people in need throughout metropolitan New York. The collaboration is an effort to improve literacy, which in turn should break the cycle of poverty for many children in lower socio-economic areas. For every chargeable hour that any accountant/advisor at Cerini & Associates performs, they will work with Book Fairies to cover the cost to distribute a book to a child that doesn’t have access to books.

It is with confidence that I recommend Cerini and Associates, LLP as auditors for non–profit organizations. As the Chief Financial Officer representing several companies, I’ve worked with a number of different audit teams throughout the years. They are always competent, well-organized, and thorough. Audit partner Matt Burke is very knowledgeable and professional, and available throughout the audit to answer questions or discuss any issues that arise. The firm is also a resource year-round – providing guidance for new accounting pronouncements, offering seminars & training sessions, and brainstorming options to handle unique transactions that occur.
