Freedom Accounting ServicesOUR STORY

How We Came to Be

Freedom Accounting was born in a CPA firm. Our years of experience there taught us that many bookkeepers lack a deep understanding of important financial accounting and tax issues. So, in 2006, we began Freedom Accounting to provide a higher level of service. We fully understand accounting systems, financial reporting, tax compliance, tax planning, and the needs of organizations of all sizes, and we utilize this knowledge to implement best practices and provide sound advice to our clients.
