Why DS+B?ConnectedProactiveAccessible

Why DS+B?

When you consider an accounting firm to partner with, we understand your needs go beyond filing deadlines and technical expertise. You need a team that is connected to you, understands your business, provides insight, proactive guidance, continuous improvement, and above-all values building a relationship that grows with you. 

Sure, we offer big-picture thinking and big-firm resources. Yet, we are accessible to you, your family, your management team, and throughout your organization. 

Being Connected, Proactive + Accessible ® is our purpose, our cause, our passion. It’s a culture, mindset and expectation that your business and personal needs are owned and addressed by a whole team, not just one main contact or partner.

Connected

Connections are the glue that builds lasting relationships. It’s about providing you ongoing guidance that comes from an in-depth understanding of your business direction and personal financial goals. So when you step into DS+B, you’ll quickly learn that we consider connecting with our clients to be more than getting together every once in awhile to talk shop.

To us, it means being personally vested in your long-term success – as well as the people around you. When we align, you tap into an extensive network of business relationships and industry expertise to accelerate your business growth. 

Proactive

Proactive service is more than just suggestions and recommendations from a CPA, advisor or consultant – it’s an educational experience that provides you with tools, knowledge and support. We help you improve the timeliness and accuracy of your financial reporting, so you can focus on other aspects of your business with confidence.

Through ongoing communication, we filter the relevant information you need to navigate potential threats and head off issues. We work with you to uncover and capitalize on new opportunities. We help each client through the entire business life cycle. From start-up to succession planning, and everything in between.

Accessible

Accessible is about being ready, being prepared. To have responsive professionals with you at every step, requests are returned within 24 hours or less. Every time. 

We rally to collaborate with you, bringing diverse perspectives to the table so you understand the financial outcomes of each big decision. It’s about an accounting and tax firm that gives you access to an International alliance of resources to reduce the complexity of doing business anywhere in the world you need to.
