As part of our ongoing "Getting to Know Your Local Businesses" series, we sat down this week with Brian Silver, owner of Silver Accounting Group, LLC.
Tell us a bit about your business: What does your business offer, and how long have you been around?
For the past 20 years, we’ve been advising individuals and business owners about tax and accounting-related tasks. We take away the worry that our neighbors have about their accounting.
Whether you need tax preparation and advising, online bookkeeping, payroll, remote accounting, job costing, financial planning, audit assistance, budget preparation, review of financial statement chart of accounts, business translation process flow, evaluation of management prepared financial statements, or management analysis of financial statements compilations, we’re ready to take these tasks off your hands as a full-service CPA firm.
How did you decide to get involved in this line of work?
Previously, we were known as Johnson & Parker and I acquired the company in July 2019. We’ve kept the same great staff and service.
Before the acquisition, I was a corporate employee. With an MBA from Oklahoma City University, I always dreamed of owning a small business and decided to buy an existing CPA firm to launch my venture. This company has a solid reputation, experienced accountants, and long-term client relationships; it was what I wanted. The company had no website and did no marketing. Instead, they had grown purely and consistently by word of mouth.
I wanted to grow this company to have real conversations with our neighbors about their personal or business finances.
Tell us a couple of things that you are proud of in your business. What are you known for? What separates you from the competition?
I’m most proud of how we engage with our clients, adapting to meet each of their needs. We understand that each individual or business owner has different accounting needs and wants flexibility.
We offer different levels of service. For example, we have developed a unique system that makes it quick and easy to file your taxes. If you prefer to work with us remotely, you will find our services are the right fit. We provide the same online service level that you would receive sitting in our office, and we use the most secure methods to transmit your private information.
What is your favorite part of running this business?
I enjoy visiting with my neighbors and having conversations about accounting-related problems. When I hear that someone has hit a tax or accounting-related roadblock, my team and I work quickly and efficiently to solve their issue.
Whether you have an individual or corporate tax-related issue, a trust or estate-related issue, have a non-profit tax-related issue, or another type of accounting-related problem, we find the best solution to meet your needs.
Who is your ideal customer/client? Who do you serve best?
Our ideal customer is any individual or business owner that needs help with their ongoing tax planning and changing business needs.
We’re here to answer any of your questions. Let us show you how our expertise can save you in the long run.
Is there any other information you'd like your potential customers/clients to know about your business?
Advances in technology now allow us to provide you with accounting and bookkeeping services worldwide securely. You can access your financial information and business files online, anytime, for a fraction of the cost of in-house accounting.
We offer a free one-hour consultation for small business owners to address bookkeeping, payroll, or tax-related concerns.
