Accountants manage more than finances.
They also manage expectations.

A recent study by U.S. Bank revealed that 82% of small businesses fail due to cash flow mismanagement.* These numbers could be significantly lowered through the advice and counsel of a certified CPA. Accountants are a vital part of the business community, compiling financial information, presenting it to the appropriate stakeholders and providing assurance that the information presented is accurate. Accountants perform these tasks to ensure business and individuals can invest in our economic system with the confidence that their financial interests are well protected.
