This developed into strategic planning for individual wealth maintenance, minimization of tax liabilities for individuals and corporations, and virtual & outsourced CFO consulting services.

From this foundation, we offer the following specialized services: accounting, payroll and tax services for individuals and businesses, strategic tax planning for individuals and businesses, financial planning services for individuals and estates, consulting services for business development and management, and virtual and outsourced CFO services.
