Accountability: it means responsibility, honesty, integrity. As a small business owner, you know how important these qualities are, especially when it concerns your business books.

Think about it this way: “Account-ability.” The ability to do accounting and do it well. Competence. Expertise. Precision. Attention to detail. Mastering the craft. It’s what you want when you entrust your business-building, taxes, accounting, and bookkeeping to an outside firm. It has to be done right, because it’s the lifeblood of your business.

It’s not just about crunching numbers. Your CPA firm should be your partner in building your business.
