Thomas Stephen & Company, LLP is comprised of an accomplished and distinguished team of certified public accountants and consultants with one overriding purpose since 1991.
“To provide excellent and uncompromising service to our clients at a fair price.”
This primary maxim has been the driving force in building a firm of talented and creative individuals who place the highest premium on customer service as well as an impeccable reputation in the industry.
Each partner and associate brings a variety of expertise that affords our clients unparalleled and all-encompassing resources usually seen only in national accounting firms. Although we are able to provide resources equivalent to those of a national firm, we retain the personalized, hands-on approach of a local firm. As a result of our firm’s intimate approach to customer service, clients gain a higher level of service than with other firms. Every client determines their own level of risk and we deliver results based solely on the clients’ wishes. We work for our clients, not the other way around. Our clients’ goals are always a main priority. We deliver results in a timely and cost effective manner. We pride ourselves on being deal makers, not deal breakers.
Communication & Responsiveness
Good communication is the cornerstone of great service. Our firm believes in regular correspondence with clients, whether it’s to share insights on impending regulations, to discuss technological developments, or simply to ensure that desired goals are being achieved. Keeping the lines of communication open allows us and our clients to foresee any problems or opportunities on the horizon. The main objective is to be able to anticipate rather than to react.
Because of dedication to meeting or exceeding our client’s expectations, our goal is to present a better value than our competitors. The caliber of our professional services is unsurpassed and our clients benefit in many areas from our advice. In addition to constructing innovative tax ideas and strategies for our clients, we are well placed to offer suggestions concerning improvements and modifications to their businesses. At our firm, we can remain one step ahead of our competitors by keeping you several steps ahead of yours.
In accordance with our philosophy that the client comes first, all of our client’s needs are dealt with in a timely manner with full approval and diligence from our partners. We do not believe that client operations should be delayed by a variety of employees giving you different answers. Each client service team is empowered to respond immediately to our client’s needs in order to take full advantage of any opportunity that presents itself. No task is too big or too small and all are handled with equal and unparalleled resolve. We are constantly assessing your future with an eye on meeting the goals for success and stability.
Customization and Affordability
The realization that no two companies are exactly alike is paramount in providing sound advice and successful business planning. We work closely with each client to custom design our services for the needs of a particular engagement. This approach allows us to provide high quality services on a very cost effective basis.
Because of our depth of experience in the real estate industry, for instance, our clients do not have to spend valuable time and money explaining the nuances of real estate to our staff since they work on it full time. We will work with you to develop an approach to each engagement that will meet your needs as well as your budget. At Thomas Stephen & Company, LLP, it is our business to know your business.
