About-us

Our Approach

The thought of doing taxes and running financials may be exciting for accountants. However, we have come to realize that most clients would rather be running their business than spending any more time than absolutely necessary to stay compliant with government taxation regulations. Meeting with your accountant shouldn't be something that you dread having to take the time out of the day to do. Your accountant should be a resource that you look forward to turning to for help in achieving your business goals.

That's why at Erik Douglas, CPA we understand that every business owner is unique, some may want to be involved in their financial day-to-day, others just want to ensure peace of mind knowing that it's being handled by us. We approach each client like they are our most important client and show that it by ensuring we are flexible and that when you call you get to speak with your accountant, not a bookkeeper or secretary. This why we don’t just take every client that comes in the door, we want to make sure that we are as much of a good fit for you as you are for us.

It’s about so much more than just crunching numbers.
