Services

Our process begins with an in-person or telephone meeting where we carefully listen to you and learn about your plans and concerns. The more we learn about you, the better we can advise you on a tax or financial reporting plan. We then discuss various options with you to determine what an appropriate plan would be for you. Once we have jointly decided on a clear course of action, we assist you with the execution of the necessary operational and reporting steps. We then follow through with quality reporting and advice for as long as we have the opportunity to be of service to you.
