ZLC Group: The tax man stands proudly in front of Buffalo's City Hall

Welcome to the new look of The ZLC Group, CPAs!

A message from one of our partners – Edward Lavery, CPA


Dear clients, partners, and friends:

For those of you who have been with us for a while, you’ve probably noticed a fresh new look at thezlcgroup.com. And for those of you who may be new to our website or business, welcome! 

As we prepare for another year of high-quality accounting services for individuals and businesses in our community, we hope that our new website will provide you with the most beneficial user experience. Our goal is to help you best understand who we are, what we do, and how you can prepare your finances for continued growth in 2022 and beyond.

While our services have not changed, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind you of all that we offer. Our team of licensed CPAs, tax preparers, accounting associates, business managers, and bookkeepers are here to help you with the following services:


Audit & accounting for businesses

In the world of audits and accounting, compliance is everything. To help you read between the lines and make the most informed decisions for the best results, we’ll help you conduct financial statement audits, manage assets from a trust, compile and review financial statements, and more.



Payroll & bookkeeping for businesses

Time is money, right? When you’re busy with the day-to-day goings-on of your business, we’ll make sure your debts, credits, and payments are all properly accounted for. We’ll work alongside your team to make sure your business is compliant with tax and payroll laws, keep track of payable and receivable accounts, and highlight all your financial positions and statuses according to each account.



Tax planning & preparation for businesses

Nonprofits. Corporations. Partnerships and LLCs. If you’ve got a business, we can help you minimize liabilities and maximize returns when you file your taxes. As the backbone of our business, our tax planning and prep services help your business identify long-term goals, investigate every available option, and stay abreast of the ever-changing nature of tax rules and structures.



Estate & financial planning for individuals

Are you prepared to leave a lasting legacy for your friends and family? We can help you protect your assets, maximize the contributions on your estate and trust tax returns, and ensure that your heirs will be well taken care of in the event of any postmortem circumstances.



Tax planning & preparation for individuals

When it comes to filing your taxes, which option would you trust more: “quick” and “easy” DIY tax preparation software, or a team of dedicated professionals who know your finances inside and out? Don’t risk leaving hundreds—or even thousands—of dollars on the table come tax time. Instead, make the most of your returns with help from your friends at ZLC Group CPAs!



In addition to these services, we will also be regularly updating our new blog page, which now features helpful tools and resources for your own financial wellbeing. 

If you have any questions or comments, you’re free to call us at 716.839.9001 or send us a message today! Thanks so much for your time and interest. 

Yours in financial health,

Edward Lavery, Partner
The ZLC Group, CPAs
