We have a team of accountants that offer a multitude of services which makes us one of the top CPA firms in the area.
Our services include:
Accounting, Auditing and Financial Reporting
Financial statements are prepared in a timely manner and in a form that is easily understandable for our clients. We make every effort to ensure that financial statements are in compliance with all applicable reporting requirements. We strive to help make clients aware of their financial position and also suggest ways for them to improve internal control.
We help our clients by offering our professional advice to assist them in managing their businesses in a cost-efficient manner and help keep them in compliance with rules and regulations of the Federal, State and Local Governments.
The firm has extensive experience in auditing municipalities, school districts, retirement systems, municipal federal grants and water, sewer, and fire districts.
Our professionals have experience in auditing federal grants and programs and are knowledgeable in the Single Audit Act process and the UMAS accounting system. Most of our audits are now in compliance with the new GASB 34 Reporting Model.
The partners have developed cost-effective and efficient procedures through their extensive experience. They have provided training to clients to simplify and improve accounting records and internal controls. The firm members are aware of special procedures that must be followed when entities receive federal and state grants. We have prepared reports for the Single Audit Clearinghouse as well as the Department of Education and the United States Department of Agriculture. Also, we have audited the End-of-Year Pupil and Financial Reports for school districts and have helped many school districts in preparing this report to comply with government guidelines.
Non-Profit Audits, Reviews and Compilations
We service non-profit clients and are experienced in working with volunteer organizations in preparing audits, reviews and compilations as well as tax preparation. As part of our engagements, we assist non-profits in making their organizations more proficient and offer advice in improving their systems of internal control.
Tax Preparation and Planning
We offer both individual and corporate tax preparation services, and have helped many businesses to become incorporated. We keep an extensive library to assist our clients with the ever-changing tax code and with tax planning tools that will help individuals retain income and businesses attain profitability.
