Funeral Homes & Crematories

Personalized Accounting & Consulting Services for Funeral Operators

Although many funeral homes have been in the same family for decades, funeral operators are discovering that what worked for past generations may no longer be relevant. With the growth in cremation services and the increase in overhead and product costs, funeral homes across the United States are finding their profit margins diminishing.

Funeral Homes need partners who understand their business and who will provide proactive and strategic advice. At Trout CPA, we have a committed team of accountants and business advisors who focus on funeral homes and crematories. These professionals are in tune with the challenges facing the funeral home industry because they are in the trenches with their clients and attend industry-specific conferences to gain knowledge to help funeral operators improve efficiencies and profitability.
