SARANAC LAKE — Saranac Lake accountant and long-time financial adviser Joseph E. Fiorile, CPA, PFS, is expanding his firm, introducing a cutting-edge, high-tech, comprehensive way of doing business in the Adirondacks. Now named Fiorile Financial Advisory Group, the firm’s mission is to help individuals, professionals and small businesses reach their fullest potential both organizationally and financially.

The group’s mission is achieved by applying a holistic approach that is tailored to the individual needs of each client.

“Most professionals, business owners and managers are so focused on the day-to-day operations and revenue generation that there is seldom an opportunity to step back, assess the bigger picture and determine their organization’s financial health throughout the year,” Fiorile said. “It isn’t until the end of the year when it is too late to change course that they realize the severity of their organization’s financial health. Using the preventative approach, this is the role we play.”

The firm handles all aspects of their clients’ finances including accounts payable and receivable, bookkeeping, banking, payroll, retirement and employee benefits, monthly and quarterly financial reports, quarterly and annual tax remittances, and succession planning.”
