We are one of the few firms in Florida (especially Tampa area) who take a team approach in helping our clients succeed. The team approach involves us inserting ourselves in clients businesses, from both operational and financial perspectives. In our view, it is important for CPAs to know their clients’ numbers. But it does not stop there. The role of the CPA goes well beyond number crunching. We try to understand the decision making process that produces the numbers. We strongly believe that good management decisions that are efficiently and effectively executed determine the future of any business. Financial success is merely a by-product of superior decision-making concerning each dollar that a business earns or spends.
Every business owner seeks to be successful using two major strategies:
- Increase Revenues
- Reduce Expenses
We help the business owner look at all aspects connected to both the major strategies. By advising clients on marketing strategies that have worked in their industry to incorporating time-tested cost saving strategies, we are uniquely equipped to add significant value to the bottom line.
Tax Strategy & Planning
Building an effective tax strategy is an integral part of superior decision making. Taxes constitute a significant portion of business expenses, and effectively managing them can lead to significant benefits over time. It is important to distinguish between tax planning and compliance. Preparation of tax returns is called compliance and most CPAs do a fairly good job at doing that. However, tax planning involves formulating a strategy that minimizes the effective tax rate over long periods of time. Tax planning involves discussing the entire business plan with a client and making the appropriate time-sensitive choices to ensure maximum savings. Keeping up with the ever-changing tax code and its practical implications to our clients is a task we take seriously. Monitoring the court cases and their impact is also a crucial planning component.
Free Business Check-Up
We are so convinced in our superior approach that we invite all prospective clients to come visit our offices and undergo our free no-obligation “check-up” of your business or individual health. We certainly believe that knowledge has a liberating power and sometimes even knowing what the possibilities are, can lead to meaningful change in your personal or business financial health.

In the success of our clients lies our own!!
