Welcome to The CPA Department — Client Advocates and Partners

By focusing on client advisory and advocacy services, the CPA Department embraces and supports client needs and priorities.

We specialize in working with small to mid-sized businesses and government contractors, but our clients also include sole proprietors and family offices.  With a broad range of accounting services and consulting expertise, we serve every business and individual with the exact combination of services that are required.

For our small and mid-sized clients, we frequently handle some or all accounting, bookkeeping and payroll requirements on an outsourced basis.  For other clients, we augment or support internal accounting staff.  Our services include accounting, CFO and Controller leadership, payroll, tax preparation, business consulting and solving tax problems.

We also advise many of our clients on financial matters and work with our network of trusted advisors to provide additional services like personal finance, retirement planning, insurance, and wealth management.  Our clients can receive all the services, financial planning and advice they need from one source – the CPA Department.

Unlike most accounting firms, we don’t prioritize financial statement audits, although we have the expertise to do so.  For this reason, we do not have conflicts of interest when our clients need management expertise and support.  Hiring an auditor to advise you on management accounting, strategy or a financial problem is a bit like a football team hiring a referee to be their assistant head coach.

We are free to aid clients in a collaborative manner, working as part of the management team, to drive strategy and decision making.  We help clients prepare for audits, conduct mock or test audits, and represent and support clients throughout audits or inquiries that may occur.  We become true partners to our clients and their businesses.
