Q. What size clients do you accept?
A. We accept any clients within our service range. If the engagement is very large, we will accept it if we feel we have the staff to handle it. If we don't have the appropriate staff, we may form an alliance with another CPA firm and perform a joint engagement. There is no account too small to be considered important in our office.
Q. HOW DO I GET TO YOUR OFFICE?
A. Directions to our office along with a map are located on our "Contact Us" page. Feel free to call for more detailed instructions if necessary
Q. What are your hours and are you a seasonal company? A. We are open all year from about 10am to 5pm five days a week. Extended hours are offered at a time most convenient with our client's.
Q. Do I need to visit your office to have my taxes prepared? A. It is not necessary to visit our office. Many clients utilize the mail or express services to send their information to us. For new clients, we encourage a meeting so that we can discuss your unique tax situation

Q. I currently use an outside payroll service, and, frankly, have not been pleased for various reasons. What alternatives do I have?
A. We now have access to a very good payroll alternative that you can access and use right here on our webpage. This is a reasonably priced alternative, competitive with the nationally known services, and offers you the flexibility of running your own payrolls on YOUR schedule. Direct deposit, ACH tax payments and easy import to your QuickBooks or other accounting software are features of this very good software. Call us for a demonstration!
Q. I am concerned that my business is not as profitable as I would like it to be. What can you do to help me?
A. We offer an operational auditing program to assess your company's operational strengths and weaknesses. We breakdown your business into the areas that are mission critical and offer recommendations (that we can help you to implement!) to get your business on track. Organizational efficiencies and profitability structuring are the keys to your business working FOR YOU rather than vice versa.
