Our expertise goes beyond audits and the preparation of income tax returns.
We work closely with our clients and with those in the industry, constantly bringing ideas and evaluating opportunities that arise. When appropriate, we will share the best practices and good ideas that we have seen or heard of while working with our large telecommunication client base. This may include accounting procedures, tax strategies, investment opportunities, bringing people and companies together, and staffing needs.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our work over the past 30 years and the credibility we have with our clients. We stand behind our work, whether we are helping you develop strategies, improve internal processes, or assist you in front of the Public Utility Commissions or other regulatory agencies.

While providing audit and tax services to our clients, we stress the importance of looking beyond “audit and tax” for ways to add value.
Based on our industry knowledge, there are several current topics facing our clients today that are critical to their success. Some examples include:
How reliant is your company on support mechanisms and other revenue sources that are under attack? Do you know the impact of the FCC’s current Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on your organization? We can help you understand these issues and share what others are doing to position themselves for these changes.
Always a challenge to established companies, cash flow is of critical importance to entities that are expanding their operations. We help clients create cash budgeting models to effectively manage this challenge.
As part of the audit process, we obtain details of various systems, how they are designed, and how they work. We will help you develop internal controls that work well for your growing company.
