Paul Carlson, CPA is different kind of CPA firm that focuses on leveraging technology to produce the information needed to manage your firm and meet tax requirements. My firm is different because:

My focus is on small business accounting and contract controller services. I am not a tax preparer, so my services are not hindered by tax busy seasons. My continuing education focuses on small business accounting and technology solutions.

I spend many hours a week training with emerging accounting software geared toward small businesses. With the right set of tools, you can dramatically reduce the amount of time spent on accounting tasks. Other tools provide better information for decision making and provide access to your information from any computer.

My professional experience includes starting and managing several small businesses; I know what it is like to be in your shoes.

Customer Testimonials

Paul was very helpful to me and my firm recently, when he advised me on how to set up an alternate solution to our office server. We were having trouble working through the set up recommended by our sales rep, and one e-mail from Paul made it clear. It's wonderful to have another CPA with his knowledge base, willing to share information!

When I started my law firm, I hired Paul Carlson, CPA to be the firm’s accountant. Paul proactively manages the accounting, IOLTA and trust reconciliations, payroll, and client invoicing needs for my firm and provides monthly financial statements. Invoices for my clients are often completed the same day I submit time sheets. He provides frequent suggestions for improving operations, is always prompt, and is very knowledgeable. I appreciate being able to focus on providing legal services while Paul handles the back office.

Our bookkeeping, accounting, and payroll services include handling the below business tax requirements. Without professionally prepared monthly financial statements, tax season is stressful because financial statements are prepared at the last minute and often contain errors. Tax planning is nearly impossible because the tax year has already closed. The tax reporting cycle changes dramatically with professionally prepared financial statements. During the course of the year, your business is operated according to the strategies identified by the tax professional and current financial statements allow for adjusting strategies when needed.
