Can my independent CPA do what you do?

No. There are various reasons that your independent CPA cannot perform our services,

  1. Their ethical requirement to remain independent from certain functions in your business (think: Enron and Arthur Andersen),
  2. They do not have our average of years of CFO experience, which is a specialized skill,
  3. Their business is not set up to work 100% of their time at your office, which is what you need,
  4. Your CPA is usually not available to you for extended periods of time between January 1st and April 15th,
  5. Your CPA’s two or three-year staff person that might be sent to your company will be billed at a higher rate than we charge and
  6. It is not cost-effective for your CPA firm to provide our services.
