“The A.C.T. Group has been our accountant for 12 years.  They have been beyond stellar in their professionalism and knowledge.  They helped us understand the step by step processes and to create systems in our business that would ensure accurate, complete and consistent tax filings.


When I began working with them I was new to owning and managing a small business.  The A.C.T. Group took the time to teach us the basics and grow our skills.  As the business has grown, they have supported us and provided excellent tax planning services and great advice.


Owning a small business is challenging and very, very hard work…without The A.C.T. Group, I would be lost and disgruntled.  Tax planning and completing the taxes is NOT an activity that I like or even remotely enjoy…their team makes it bearable.


The staff always follow up quickly and is a pleasure to work with.  Special kudos to Valerie who manages the front desk..she makes you feel like  you are the only client in the world when you call!


Their rates are fair and reasonable—even low for the level of service, professionalism and expertise.”

Financial integrity is the most important aspect of any small business, especially during its initial stages. Many small business owners tend to think that they can take charge of the financial aspect of their business, only to realize that it is not as easy as they think. This is the main reason for hiring an accountant like The A.C.T. Group, LLC. We will handle the financial record keeping aspect of your business while you concentrate on different aspects of your business.

Hiring an accountant helps the company save a lot of money in the long run. The importance of hiring a firm like The A.C.T.

We help in day to day financial transactions, manage tax preparation, and help oversee your employees’ payroll. We can also make plans for necessary changes in business expenses to ensure there are no additional costs that would affect your business negatively.

In addition, we can safeguard your business against audit and help plan expansion of your business to other locations. And, if possible, help you to sell the business if you are willing and able.
