Adam Ripperdan, Principal
For some time now, I have seen that our industry needs a change. The old way of running accounting firms does not seem to serve the client in today’s day and age. When I found out what Dark Horse is doing, I instantly felt that they are setting up our industry to not only survive, but to thrive as well. Joining forces with everything they bring to the table allows me to better serve the clients with more engagement and real time results.

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.

I have found that it is easier to arrive at my desired destination with a map. Armed with this logic, I see great tax advisory service as arming a Business owner with a blueprint of how to navigate the complex IRS Code and arrive at their desired goals…legally! It actually gets kind of (dare I say) Fun, when you realize that the Tax Code book is just a book of incentives to create and grow your wealth. With professional tax services, our clients always know real time where they stand, and what steps to take next.
Adam Ripperdan, Principal
Some say that accounting is the language of business, and I agree. The core of any solid strategy starts on a foundation of good numbers. Coming from a sports background, this foundation is what I would call the fundamentals or blocking and tackling of business. Businesses that try to make decisions without knowing where they're at and where they're headed financially often end up failing or underachieving. With professional accounting services, our clients always know where they stand. Not only do they have current financial metrics but a trusted advisor to explain what it all means.

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.

With our prior accountant we didn't feel we were receiving adequate tax guidance and felt we were always paying more than our fair share of taxes. We have been very pleased with the service we have received with Adam. He has taken the time to review in detail our current situation and upcoming plans. With that information he has helped us create tax strategies for our businesses, investments, and personal taxes that not only help us save on taxes but also helps us plan for the future. I highly recommend Adam's accounting firm.
