A Bit About Us
We are two CPAs with a passion for small businesses and a desire to promote the entrepreneurial spirit in Hampton Roads. We offer highly tailored and professional services that are consultative by design. This allows you to work at building your business while we take care of your accounting and compliance.
What we have learned from our experience working in Hampton Roads is that one size does NOT fit all when it comes to small businesses. The administrative responsibilities of a new owner include so much more than just accounting and bookkeeping and can be overwhelming. Any CPA Firm will provide accounting, payroll and tax service, but what you need is an Accounting/Payroll/ Human Resources Manager rolled into one person. Also, you only need them part time. This is where we can help.
