The term “accounting services” encompasses many different areas of financial data preparation and analysis. When most people think about accounting services, certain aspects come to mind, such as balance sheets, income statements, and tax returns. What is not readily realized, however, is that accounting services involve much more than preparation of financial statements.
At Pritchard, Bieler, Gruver & Willison, P.C. (PBGW), members of our accounting services team bring a wealth of experience to each client engagement. Our accounting services personnel are the epitome of the phrase “jack of all trades.” Not only must we possess technical prowess in the areas of proper accounting and reporting procedures, we must also expand our knowledge to include management expertise. We must be knowledgeable about your company, its industry, and your management philosophy, so that we can provide you with the best management advice for your individual business situation.
PBGW’s Accounting Services Group is one of many departments comprising our organization. Our firm includes a variety of specialty areas—tax, audit, business consulting litigation support, business valuation, and computer support—allowing us to draw upon the experience and expertise of in-house professionals from each field in order to provide you with complete management advisory services.

In order to serve as effective advisors, the most important aspect of our job is to analyze your financial picture and discuss it with you in light of your goals. Of course, it’s important to be technically proficient when preparing financial statements and returns; however, we believe it’s equally important to provide useful financial information that will help you make the right business decisions, especially in today’s marketplace.
Today many companies produce their own monthly financial statements and general ledgers. In these cases, our role as valued financial advisor becomes even more evident. We’ll help you in tax planning and will meet with you to analyze your statements. We’ll advise you on ways to achieve results by giving you the information you need to make sound decisions, make changes if necessary, and pinpoint potential problems. In other words, we’re available to help in any way we can, whenever you need us.
