Robert Half Finance & Accounting, Accountemps & Mgt. Resources


Small businesses should not run by the seat of the owner's pants. The role of a business's bookkeeping system should emphasize making good business decisions rather than simply "getting the taxes done." Business owners should not have to ask why they owe taxes when they have no money. I offer my clients the tools and technology to use accurate, up-to-date, and relevant information to make good business decisions, maximize profits, and optimize taxes. I am a Certified Public Accountant with more than 20 years' experience helping small business owners in the Richmond Metro area "understand their numbers" to stay proactive in the management of their business. While tax preparation and other compliance considerations provide a foundation, the goal is to provide close professional service to business owners in the planning and implementation of economic decisions that affect their businesses. Specialties: The tax and accounting needs of small businesses and their owners in the Richmond Metro area.
