“This was beneficial not only for the tax refund that was secured, but also for future tax savings. It contributed to our bottom line and prevented future billing errors.  Allen and his associates were professional and easy to work with.”

-Doug Bridges, CFO of Etan Industries

“OPR found more than $200,000.  The entire process took about six months.  I believe this recovery would not have been possible without OPR.  They weren’t looking for mistakes we made, but for errors in how we were billed by vendors; they looked for what we missed. We know the sales tax laws in each state so these errors won’t happen again.  We are able to save money for the future and know what to look for.”

Kim Whitehead, CFO of The Rug Doctor, Inc.

“Allen and his team focused not only on mistakes at our end, but at the vendor’s end too. They helped us understand overpayment issues. The benefit from working with them has been tremendous. Overpaid Payables has helped us identify various areas of lost profitability over the years in the area of payables and utilities.  Like most companies, we thought we were quite good at it.  But they brought a unique expertise and helped us improve materially. I ‘strongly encourage’ company controllers, chief financial officers and others to go through the process, especially those that never have.
