“I met Keith when I was brand new to accounting software and needed help. He quickly got me comfortable using accounting software and got me set up to “keep the books” for a small restaurant in which I had a major share. Keith did our taxes. In fact I enjoyed working with Keith so much I switched to Keith for our personal taxes as well. That was nine years ago. I am still quite pleased and would recommend Keith and his crew to anyone“
“Keith Early has been outstanding to work with from day one. Time and time again he has gone the extra mile, to help me out when needed. He’s extremely responsive and does everything he can to help answer my questions thoroughly, completely and most importantly, in a way I will understand. On top of being reliable and trustworthy, I have been very impressed with the professionalism and integrity of Mr. Early. He has definitely been an asset to my business. I highly recommend Mr. Early and his team to anyone needing CPA services.“
“America’s Best Franchising, Inc. retained Mr. Early to review, refine, and improve our existing accounting policies and procedures. He was able to identify and correct numerous issues, some known, others unknown to us…particularly in terms of compliance with GAAP, internal controls, and improved financial reporting.
Beyond compliance, we were frustrated by the inability of our existing accounting systems and procedures to provide accurate, relevant, and timely management information necessary to improve our operational efficiency. We sought further assistance from Mr. Early to lead the setup/design of a new accounting system with the goal of consolidating multi-company operations into a single set of books. Ultimately, we expanded the scope of his work even further to conduct a historical review of our books/records and provide guidance and services necessary to ensure tax and regulatory compliance.
At all times, we found Mr. Early to be knowledgeable, professional, and results-oriented. He provided critical insight into best practices based on his diverse experience across numerous industries which was immensely helpful in improving the quality our systems, the competence of our personnel, the efficiency of our operations, and our compliance with various tax and regulatory requirements. I would highly recommend Mr. Early to any business seeking a “virtual accounting department” and/or those seeking to implement new or improve existing accounting systems. He has been a true partner throughout our relationship, focused first and foremost on our success.”
