I am a CPA providing audits, reviews, tax return preparation, and consulting services to the nonprofit community. The focus of my firm is to serve organizations by providing needed audit and consulting projects. These can be leveraged to improve non-profits in the areas of accounting, finance, and management. Helping NPOs function well in those areas is one of many factors that in turn make it possible for them to have a greater impact in their mission.
I’ve also become a peer reviewer. You can see some posts on peer reviews and quality control at my other blog.
I am intentionally a sole practitioner, which means I am a one-person CPA firm by choice. Technology makes this possible. The desire to have the maximum impact for my clients makes this preferable. The geographic focus of my firm in Southern California makes this easy.
The goal of this blog is to provide the non-profit community with helpful accounting, tax, and finance information. Since my everyday world is accounting and auditing, there will also be lots of discussion of those areas. Plan to have some economic discussions and comments on books that you might enjoy as much as I did.
I am also blogging at www.attestationupdate.com. The focus of that blog is on audit and other attestation issues. Also discussing peer review and quality control, as I already mentioned. That will be the place for the more technical discussions.
You can browse the site by choosing a topical area in the categories box at the right . You could also use the search box in the top right corner to look for a specific topic, such as ‘mileage’ for vehicle reimbursement or ‘cell phone’.
