Since 1975 we’ve focused our efforts on building longstanding relationships with our clients. We thrive on seeing them grow – sometimes from startups all the way through well thought out succession plans. We’re more than just your business accountant. Providing honest advice through business consulting, tax preparation, and ongoing accounting services has allowed us to continue to grow and serve others.

Our experienced, professional staff has industry knowledge, qualifications and the educational background to meet the specific needs of each client. We are well trained and up-to-date on current accounting issues and strive to provide leadership, teamwork and exceptional service to all.

We stay connected with our business clients by meeting on a monthly or quarterly basis. This gives them the reassurance that they’re on track to meet their financial and operational goals and provides us with the opportunity to plan for the upcoming year.

Accounting, auditing, bookkeeping, and tax planning are important elements in running a business. At Steensma we offer our clients assistance and provide ideas to make informed business decisions throughout the entire year, not just during tax season. It’s essential that our clients don’t have an unpleasant surprise from a profit/loss and/or tax standpoint. As your business accountant, our goal is to minimize tax liability within the rules of the IRS or at least prepare you well in advance for the taxes you will owe.

More than a Business Accountant

Over 35 years ago we helped an 18 year old start his first business venture. Things have been bright for that young man in the last 3+ decades and we’ve since helped him with numerous business opportunities.

We’ve provided a full range of business consulting services by helping with business start-up, entity planning, setting up an accounting system, payroll services, payroll and sales tax reporting, financial management, tax planning, tax preparation and training his employees.

Our client appreciates the role we play as “off-site controller.”
