TAX PLANNING AND PREPARATION
Finding a CPA that truly understands your business model and your goals is critical to the Small Business Owner and Entrepreneur. At Apis Business Solutions, we do not do taxes. We believe that it is beneficial to have "different eyes" looking at your financials and checking each other's work. As advisors to businesses and individuals, Certified Public Accountants can provide the tax planning strategies to minimize current and future tax liabilities; prepare federal, state and local tax returns; help clients comply with tax laws and regulations; and represent clients during examinations by various tax authorities.
All CPAs are not created equal, so we would like to tell you about the ones we truly enjoy working with.

Jon has over five years of public accounting experience providing auditing, tax, and accounting/financial consulting services to privately held companies across the Rocky Mountain Front Range. As a full service CPA working with individuals as well as companies with annual revenues ranging from $1 million to companies with revenues over $150 million, Jon understands the issues that can arise in your business and personal life that can have an impact on your financial well being. While most of his experience is working with construction related companies, his accounting and finance background enables him to assist with any industry. With a strong commitment to customer service, his belief is as a role as your CPA is more as a professional advisor and as a part of your personal/financial team, rather than a tax preparer that you speak with once a year who may or may not understand how factors (both past and future) will affect your financial well being. Accounting is not just about reviewing past performance, but also planning for the future. Jon will stay in touch with you throughout the year to work together to make sure you are in the best position financial. Jon always has his client's best interests in mind and you can truly see his dedication and passion in his work. When Jon is your CPA you can trust that he is looking out for you and cares about your success.
