Our approach for our clients
Our approach to working with clients is based upon building a strong two-way relationship. The relationship we build will be more than the traditional, number-crunching-based model you may have had with your accountant in the past.
It’s a partnership of trust between you and us based upon collaboration, being honest with each other, and keeping channels of communication open. Businesses have ups and downs – no matter how experienced you are – and we see our role is to help you prepare to make the most money from times of stability and growth and to preserve cash when there is a downturn in revenue.
Because we get to know you and your business so well, there may be times when we see something we must share with you that you might not like to hear. However, we would not be a true partner to you if we didn’t warn you of dangers to your business as well as competitive advantages.
We’re approachable and outgoing professionals – we’d much rather pick up the phone and share our ideas, insights, and concerns with you rather than sending an impersonal and dry email. The best business is always done on the phone person to person.
