Owner-Managed Business Accountants

Most owner-managed businesses do not have an extensive and active Board of Directors, they do not have an extensive in-house source of trained management personnel, and they are unable to share their business practices, ideas, and concepts with outsiders. At PCA, we support these functions for the small business owners. We are our clients’ sounding board.

Why We Work Well with Owner-Managed Businesses

We Are Here For You. We love what we do, and that’s why we bring passion to our work and working relationships. But we are here for one reason – Our Clients. We make ourselves completely available to our clients – as business advisors, consultants, and confidants. At PCA, we put our clients and their interests first.

We Are Experienced. We’ve learned by doing, and gained experience the old fashioned way. Collectively, the principals of PCA have over half a century of experience as CPAs in public practice. They are backed up by a knowledgeable and seasoned team with diverse specialties and areas of focus. There’s great value in experience, and we bring it to the table.

We Will Listen. Since our ultimate goal is to help you and your business reach its goals, we like to listen to what our clients have to say. Listening is something we’re good at, and it helps us to better understand where you’ve been, where you are, and where you want to go. After listening, we’ll help chart the best course to make sure your goals are accomplished.

We Build Relationships. It may seem strange to think of an accounting firm as builders, but building relationships is one of the core values of PCA. We know the best way to help your business is to know your business, through our experience and acquired expertise. That’s not something that happens overnight, and it’s not something that can be learned in a book. It takes time to build trust and expertise, and that’s the best foundation to start a long-term relationship.


Tradition and Innovation

The CPA designation represents what some would call traditional values: honesty, integrity and superior service. We agree with, and fully embrace these values. But we also know that there is so much more to Certified Public Accounting than spreadsheets, financial reports and audits. We are not afraid to innovate, and to be innovative with and on behalf of our clients.

  • We see changing technology – not as a necessary burden – but as an opportunity for You to accomplish more, create more, sell more.
  • We see our changing economic periods – not as restrictive – but as a new challenge in Your desire to be the best.
  • We have embraced the concept of a digital office – significantly reducing our own level of paper consumption – and we (and our clients) have benefited from the natural efficiencies that come from implementing such practices.
  • We also know that if everyone made a small change to make the world a better place, there’d be some big changes going on.

More than Just Traditional

Yes, we offer you all the traditional accounting services, but we understand there is so much more that can be done to help you reach your ideal profits and an improved lifestyle. This can include assistance with strategies like management consulting, operational processes and business growth. Our professionals provide that extra support to help make your business better, more profitable and more valuable.

Many small business owners do not have a crystal clear vision for the future of their business, and most of them are already overwhelmed with the many roles they manage in their organization each day. We become an extension of your team. Our team helps you review the key issues you face and develop the potential solutions.

Together we help you track the progress of all key areas of your business. We offer the owner-manager of small or midsize businesses sound professional advice and guidance that supports their businesses and helps them to succeed in the short and long term.
