This accounting practice has operated for 40 years.
The firm was founded by Clarence White, CPA in 1978. The Year 2018 marks the 40th year of continuous success to our clients. The primary operating characteristic driving the firm was and remains, service to our clients. The target market was initially and remains, service to the underserved. Commitment to service and meeting the needs and objectives of our clients continues to be our primary focus.
Today we use state of the art technology to deliver services in the most cost effective manner.
We have determined to move our client base into the 21st Century by pursuing a cloud presence.
In today’s world live access to data is a way of life. Many of our hands-on bookkeeping and client managerial services are conducted online. We are eliminating the need to “go to the client’s office” by transacting and sharing information on the world wide web or “in the cloud”.
This process extends to our audit clients as well. We utilize information sharing processes that protects the client data we share and provides a means to engage in cost savings to our audit clients.
We can utilize professional time analyzing problems and producing solutions that affect operations going forward rather than spending time looking back at what has taken place.
As we go about our re-configuration, our clients can take advantage of our membership in an alliance of CPA firms and can broaden the base of available professional expertise. We have joined Hemphill, Wright & Associates Alliance of CPA Firms with members in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio; Gary, Indiana; Atlanta, Georgia; Cebu, Philippines and the San Francisco, California Bay Area. I have worked with Mr. Hemphill and partnered 15 years with Mr. Wright before returning to the Bay Area in 2003 to understand that together we are more valuable to the clients we serve as a alliance rather than an individual firm.
