About Us Remember in high school, when the teacher would give you three weeks to do a project and some of the kids waited until the last night to do it and they were up all night getting it done? Ever wondered what happened to those kids? They grew up to be accountants and small business owners. And they are still cramming before every deadline. We hate cramming to get work done before deadlines. And it’s discouraging for us when we could have saved our clients real money on their taxes if we would have only known what thay had going on before the year ended when it was too late. Doing a whole years’ worth of accounting during tax season, that is way too much excitement for us! We set out with a mission: to make accounting boring again! And we believe that taking care of business isn’t something you do once a year. For many years we have noticed that our clients that had solid up-to-date records, that paid attention to the numbers, and that sought our advice throughout the year - coincidentally, they were the clients that were most successful in their businesses. The clients that couldn’t be bothered to take care of business came and went. The clients that ran their business like a business grew in success year after year. Now some of them have retired and we are helping their kids run the business. We have had clients who retired from their business stop by and tell us ‘over the years, I always knew that you had my back. Thank you.’ And for us, that compliment never gets old. We are obsessed with doing our work well, providing real value to our clients, and with doing it in the most efficient way possible. We don’t charge by the hour like typical accountants. We charge our clients a flat monthly fee. Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, a client’s work starts taking us less time than before, or we are able to increase the efficiency of our work so we tell them we need to reduce the monthly bill. Sometimes (hopefully because their business is growing) a client’s work becomes more complicated over time and we have to raise the monthly bill. Either way, we do our best to treat our client’s fairly. When we finally reached the point where we were tired of the old-fashioned ways of doing accounting, and we discovered new modern technologies that we could use to provide dramatically better service to our clients, we were excited! When we shared with other accountants what we were doing, they always dismissed us with the same answer: “if I can do the work in half as much time, I’ll make half as much money.” Ever since we started out years ago as accountants, our golden rule has been “always do what’s best for our clients and everything will work out just fine.” Over the years, the world has changed around us. The accounting profession has changed. Technology has dramatically changed. We have (hopefully) gotten smarter. We have a few gray hairs. But our golden rule remains the same.
