Our firm has concentrated its resources to serve four specialties: (1) audit, review, accounting and tax services for closely-held corporate and partnership clients; (2) audit, review, accounting and tax services for tax-exempt or non-profit clients; (3) small business accounting and tax services; and (4) individual and estate tax compliance services and planning. These niches represent the types of clients for whom our firm is uniquely positioned to provide outstanding service.
A lengthy and significant presence in service to the hospitality and real estate industries has afforded us specialized experience. In hospitality, our clientele includes motels, hotels, bed & breakfast inns, restaurants, caterers and entertainment venues. In real estate, we serve contractors, developers, commercial and residential landlords, building suppliers and common-interest realty associations.
Due to the breadth of experience of our partners, Raetz and Hawkins, P.C., provides a quality of service that might normally be associated only with larger firms in major cities. In addition, this service is coupled with a personal interest and year-to-year consistency that national and larger regional firms often cannot deliver. Accessibility and dedication are cornerstones of our firm’s strategy to attract new clients and show that the character and stature needed in a CPA firm can be found in a small town. We always welcome opportunities to meet with potential clients to define the client’s needs and determine how our firm can best help the client meet those needs.
Litigation, regulatory restructuring and evolution in the marketplace have brought about many changes in the operating environment of CPA firms. Changes made by some CPA firms in response to these industry changes have resulted in audit failures, identifying CPA firms whose independence has been compromised and whose integrity and reliability have been cast in a doubtful light. Raetz and Hawkins, P.C., has never followed these industry changes. Our firm does not accept contingent fees or commissions. Additionally, we do not sell any products and neither syndicate tax shelters nor market investments. Raetz and Hawkins, P.C., is committed to representing the interest of our clients, our community, and the general public.
