Is Your Accountant ProActive or ReActive?

If you are an entrepreneur, business owner, or real estate investor, you need an accountant to serve as your strategic partner, not just your bean counter!  As a proactive accountant, we work side by side with the owner, collaboratively, to help grow your business.  A proactive accountant is an adviser that is looking for opportunities to position the company for profitability, tax savings, expense reduction, and more.

A proactive accountant addresses the client’s needs before they become urgent issues.  As a business owner, the difference between a proactive or reactive accountant could mean the difference between success and failure.  Are you working with a proactive accountant?  If you’re not sure, contact Emerald Financial Partners, and we’ll get you and your business on the right path.   Learn More

"I’ve been with Valerie for over 10 years. I would recommend her team to everyone. It’s great to have a tax person who you trust and you like as a good friend."

Paul A.

"Emerald Financial Partners cleaned up our Quickbooks file and amended our business and personal income tax returns.  We saved $32,830 in taxes."

Michael D.

"After 30 years of doing my own taxes, I decided to try out Emerald Financial Partners.  Right away, they pointed out that I had been making errors, costing us money.   Now, we have peace of mind knowing that WE don’t have to keep up on the ever-changing tax law and that we have competent professionals in our corner. No more wasting time trying to do taxes myself and worrying about whether I made a mistake. My lingering regret is that we didn’t use their financial planning services long ago!"

Candace N.

"We recommend Emerald Financial Partners VERY HIGHLY!  Not only have they helped us with taxes for years, but also guided us through some huge questions and long range planning."
