CORE COMPETENCIES

What sets us apart from other accounting firms?

Technology

We are early adopters, taking advantage of every technology available to promote collaboration and efficiency.

We use secure portals to transmit information, electronic organizers to compile information, and promote QuickBooks Online as our primary accounting platform.

Communication

We are educators in every aspect of what we do.

We work to communicate with our clients in the language they understand and in the way they feel most efficient.  In-person meetings are always encouraged to ensure complete understanding.  Telephone, videoconferencing, screen-sharing and white-boarding are available for all clients.

Comraderie

We know small business, because we are small business.

We experience the same highs and lows as our clients.  We never lose sight of the fact that we are peers with every client that steps foot in the door, and that people and personality are more important than any financial number.

Perspective

Our recommendations take into account the entire financial picture.

We encourage our clients to make decisions based on financial impact, not just tax savings.  Deductions are nice.  Prosperity is better.
