Why Do I Need An Accountant?
Having a CPA? on your team means you have one of the most well-rounded business professionals around, who can guide you through your toughest challenges, enhance your operational efficiency and analyze your business to help you plan for the future.
Through business and personal financial planning and in collaboration your investment adviser we provide you with comfort that you’re on the right track and that come tax time, you know what to expect.
Many of our clients rely on us to get them going in the right direction and then either do the bookkeeping themselves or hand it over to their bookkeeping team to make sure things are being handled completely, accurately, and in such a way that they inform business decisions. If you need a good bookkeeper to handle all the detailed entries we can refer you to the right one for you.
Why Do We Ask So Many Questions?
I find that the difference between me and the next CPA is the depth and perspective of questions we ask. When I leverage my decades of business and accounting experience and ask that one last question that opens up new opportunities, then that time is well spent. When working with me you can expect professionalism and integrity at every step. Our biggest goal is to earn your trust.

Randy is genuine and honest. He really seems to care about my business and how well we succeed. I will definitely return for all of my accounting needs.
I’ve recently started a new business and went to Randy Clark to make sure I had everything in order. Randy was very competent. He was very detail oriented and asked me a lot of really good questions bringing up many issues that hadn’t occurred to me. He has very strong ethics and a very strong sense of integrity.
Randy is a trusted small business adviser and Clark & Associates handles all of my personal, business, and property taxes.
Randy is a blessing. We switched from our 6yr accountant to Randy because we wanted someone who was honest, compassionate, accountable, accommodating, and had integrity.
I definitely hit the five stars with Randy and his office assistant Alex! Randy has integrity, is super easy to talk to, is very knowledgeable, and his rates are extremely reasonable. If you need tax advice, look no further!
