We Are Your Solution.

Can your accounting firm take you to the next level or help with a family succession or an exit strategy? Give us thirty minutes. We want to make you excited, not comfortable, about your relationship with your accounting firm.

Strategic Planning & Gap Management

We provide a different set of eyes and an infusion of new ideas. The first step is understanding your vision. Then, we help close the gap from where you are today to where you want to go by identifying:

  • The three to five goals that are most critical to your success.
  • Which one of those goals is most important.
  • The obstacles blocking or slowing down progress toward those goals.

Navigating the Client Lifecycle

Stages. The Lifecycle has 4 stages; Emerging, Growth, Mature and Transition. Each stage is different and needs change as you move from one stage to the next. Survival and growth may be replaced by the need to retain or transfer wealth, mitigate risk, or achieve a different life stage objective. While your accounting firm may have been excellent for the first twenty years, you may need a different firm to help with the next stage.

Direction. The more successful you become, the greater the need for expert advice tailored to your specific situation. We help you minimize stress and maximize the value of your business.

Exit & Succession. Owners are experienced and seasoned professionals, but an exit or succession is foreign to them. Many have no idea where to start or what timeline is needed to conduct a successful transition. For organizations looking at a sale or a family succession, we can help by strategizing and managing all the steps of the process.

Our Clients

We provide support for privately held businesses, high-net-worth individuals and nonprofit organizations. They vary from emerging entities just getting established, to large organizations with complex needs. Each client has different challenges and their own definition of what is valuable to them.

The core function we provide every client is accurate information, proactive tax planning and a relationship from an accounting firm that understands their business and what is important to their specific goals and obstacles.

Our tax professionals will create a tax strategy, file returns, assist with estate planning, gifting, trusts and the overall protection of family wealth.

Nonprofit Organizations

We will work in collaboration with your auditor to help close the books, prepare for an audit, become your auditor or outsource all of your accounting.
