Our firm provides outstanding service to our clients...
because of our dedication to the three underlying principles of professionalism, responsiveness and quality.We strive to provide outstanding service to our clients at a reasonable cost as part of our dedication to the principles of professionalism, responsiveness and quality. We achieve this by assigning to our engagements experienced professionals who are dedicated to helping our clients in an effective and efficient manner.We take pride in giving our clients the assurance that the personal assistance they receive comes from years of advanced training, technical experience and business acumen.
We strive to be more than your accounting firm. From the moment you become a client, our professionals will begin working to exceed your expectations. Our commitment to quality service begins with our team of qualified individuals and the core values we share as a firm. The team is comprised of competent, ethical individuals that work together to meet the needs of our clients.
Crabtree CPA & Associates will be a broad-based professional certified public accounting and consulting firm. We will proactively pursue and respond to the needs of clients by rendering a wide range of high-quality professional services commensurate with our collective abilities and representing true value in relation to cost. Although we will continue to operate the firm in conformance with sound business practices, we will remain a professional firm with our primary emphasis on serving, not profit.
Crabtree CPA & Associates is guided by our Philosophy that is based on certain core values and perhaps best expressed in condensed form by the Golden Rule:
" Do Unto Others As You Would Have Others Do Unto You."
It is symbolized by the Crabtree CPA & Associates gold ruler and implied in the Crabtree CPA & Associates motto:
" We Care."
We care about our clients, we care about our work, we care about our families and our communities, and we care about each other.
Although the Crabtree CPA & Associates Philosophy can be summarized by the Golden Rule, it is comprised of many principles, such as those in our Statement of Principles namely:
Service, Ethics, Recruitment, Compensation, Individual Progress, Advancement, Teamwork, Delegation, Education, Leadership, Individual Freedom, Communication, Decision Making, the Common Good and Balance.
These important principles include fairness; doing everything for the individual up to the point of harming the team; helping the individual and our clients to become all that they are capable of becoming; optimizing, rather than maximizing, our financial success; and doing what is right for the right reasons, with the major emphasis on the long-range consequences of our decisions.
Although we will continue to expand and refine the Principles embodied in the Crabtree CPA & Associates Philosophy, our emphasis will be on communicating, exemplifying and living the Golden Rule day in and day out.
Little of consequence is accomplished unless there is first a dream. After each dream comes the work to make the dream come true. Our Vision is that we will be relentless in our pursuit of:
-Providing 100% of our clients with unmatched service, and
-Having 100% of our staff members realize professional and personal
fulfillment while taking joy in making the dream come true.
