Suzi Drennen, Principal
Collaboration in this industry is one of the most important elements of our profession. The industry, the tax code, the requirements...they are always changing. Having resources to get in front of those changes has been invaluable. Being able to provide a direct, 1-to-1 relationship with clients is extremely important to me. Leveraging the expertise of so many specialized CPAs to provide value back to my clients is what originally drew me to Dark Horse and what continues to wow both me and my clients.

Accounting Solutions for Businesses.

The Problem: Business owners aren't getting timely, accurate and actionable data from their financials. Even worse, they're not receiving tax planning advice from their, "tax pro," which is costing them untold amounts of money. This is just plain wrong. We believe you deserve a better small business accounting firm.

Solutions for Businesses
Suzi Drennen, Principal
It is critical to find a "partner" in your business for a full range of accounting services. Popping in and out once a year does nothing to support a business client. Your CPA needs to have deep understanding of your accounting needs. If you separate your Tax person and your Accounting person, you are missing a valuable piece of the puzzle.
Suzi Drennen, Principal
Availability is extremely important to me. I know that everyone's tax situation can change throughout the year. When that comes up, my clients come directly to me. My favorite part of Tax Preparation is actually Tax Planning. Mitigating risk and reducing your tax burden PRO ACTIVELY is the most important activity that I can do for my clients.

Tax Services for People.

The Problem: taxpayers are not getting the service they deserve from their CPA. Most CPA firms rush through their clients' tax returns, do not properly explain the return, provide no recommendations on how to reduce their taxes and are generally unavailable or unhelpful outside of tax season.
