Harding, Shymanski & Company, P.S.C. (HSC) has a history of serving and supporting those in the manufacturing industry. As a founding member of TSMA, HSC has continued to work alongside TSMA leadership to create a community where area manufacturers can learn from and lean on one another. This year, the firm marks its 45th anniversary in a very different way. In- the face of economic challenges produced by the novel coronavirus pandemic, HSC has mobilized their COVID-19 Rapid Response Team to help business owners navigate new laws and evolving guidance from federal and state governments.
“The federal government moved quickly to provide economic stimulus programs,” said Harding Shymanski’s Vice President Shannon Brewer, CPA and TSMA Board Member. “What we found was that there were lots of questions area businesses had around how to access the help that was being offered to them. It became clear early on that we needed to assemble a team to help navigate the very murky water.”
In particular, the Paycheck Protection Program provided an opportunity for business leaders to apply for funds that could ultimately be forgiven if certain criteria are met. Other opportunities include the Mainstreet Lending Program and the CARES Act.
“Harding Shymanski’s regular COVID 19 briefings have been the ‘go-to’ resource for our CFO and myself,” said Matthew Nix, president of the Nix Companies. “Timely and trusted information has been invaluable during these unprecedented times. As they say, cash is king, information is queen. It’s great to have a partner that helps you manage both.”
With the new tax deadline just ahead on July 15th, this year has been anything but typical. The team at Harding Shymanski is proud to have played a part in advising area businesses as they navigate the rapidly changing environment. The firm looks forward to continue helping the TSMA create a vibrant organization for area manufacturers who want to grow and thrive here in Southern Indiana.
