To be successful, you must focus on what you do best.
For us, that means thoroughly understanding our clients and providing them with exceptional personalized service.
Our clients expect, and receive, more than mere proficiency. What they get is a combination of integrity, personal involvement
and specialized knowledge about their industry. We tailor our skills to our client’s size, state of development, form of ownership, and financial structure. We concentrate on the client’s needs, formulate an action plan, and follow through as promised. No excuses. No missed deadlines. Our relationships with clients are flexible and personal.
Our people know how to translate industry knowledge into action. They help our
clients solve problems. The quality of our services depends on the caliber of our

A Different Audit & Review Approach
Our audit approach features many elements that distinguish and differentiate our
services. These include our emphasis and focus on internal controls and risks, use
of computerized audit assistance programs to augment the audit process, and
other audit technology tools.
Utilization of these audit tools can replace most paper generated from an audit.
It also speeds the planning process, provides access to decision support
information, generates work programs based upon risk assessment decisions,
tracks major issues, monitors work progress, provides exception reporting, and
enables auditors to share information from a common source controlled through
access and system controls.
Additionally, in performing our audit, we target procedures which can be performed during interim periods to assure timely completion of the audit process, to meet all reporting deadlines with financial institutions or government oversight agencies such as the SEC and FINRA.
In performing reviews of our client financial statements, we make a point to spend time discussing the results of our analytical work with our client, so they can understand trends in their business to maintain or improve operations.
Our tax approach is to assist our clients with tax compliance within the statutory
requirements while utilizing tax-planning techniques designed to preserve cash
flow and capital. We accomplish this by assisting clients using strategic tax
planning in a pro-active and innovative fashion. Our recurring services allow us
to focus on the most beneficial tax-planning strategies in an effort to minimize tax
liability. Accordingly, we will strive to provide value-added tax services to benefit
you as part of our recurring audit services.
Tax planning is a continuous process that must be done throughout the year. In
today’s environment, tax planning encompasses not only minimizing federal
taxable income, but also minimizing state and local taxable income.
State and local taxes increase in complexity as growing companies expand their
operations. Taxes imposed by states, counties and even cities may now amount
to a heavy total tax burden. Our state and local tax specialists will make available
the full range of their expertise to help minimize state and local income and
property tax exposure.
As CPAs, we are admitted to practice and represent our clients, concerning all tax
matters, with all taxing authorities. This includes the Internal Revenue Service,
state and local agencies.
