Sales Audits

Sales audits are the core of MASON's services. In fact, our reputation is known for providing the most diligent approach to audits in the industry. It is our objective to conduct fair and equitable audits of tenants' sales for purposes of determining accuracy of reported sales and payment of percentage rent. Our firm enjoys a national recognition as a diligent and aggressive firm which is further illustrated by being selected as the exclusive audit firm representing Simon Property Group for 2008. During the course of that assignment, our firm was assigned more than 2,900 audits and retained the responsibility of the input of audit findings directly into Simon's CTI financial system and uploading of our documentation to their electronic library.

MASON’s staff is tough and determined, while respecting the tenant/landlord business relationship. We utilize proprietary and proven techniques that no other auditor firm uses, many of which come from our team’s unique experience with tenants. Both MASON’s president and members of his staff have worked for large corporations in their sales audit departments, so we know how tenants operate and react. It’s an inside track that gives the landlord a unique advantage.

We provide the perfect mix of legal, accounting, retail and landlord experience, helping us reach our goal to present our client with the highest defensible numbers in validating a tenant’s report.

When disputes do arise, MASON is experienced in methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution, and we can assist our clients in the most efficient resolution possible.
