ABOUT us

More Than Just a CPA Firm


 

At Williams & Kunkel, CPAs, LLP, we partner with our clients by providing the advice and tools which allow them to succeed. Many of our business owners have a great vision for their business, but they need the expertise of an experienced CPA firm to guide them.

Our Story

Scott Kunkel and Beth Williams established Williams & Kunkel, CPAs, LLP, in 2005, with the vision to provide a different kind of CPA firm. We are a full-service tax and accounting firm, but our passion is to help you build a great business and at the same time create and maintain the wealth you desire.

We believe that success and prosperity is possible for anyone who follows these steps: 1) set a worthy goal; 2) make a plan of action; 3) take action; and 4) have faith. It is our mission to inspire and teach our clients the three golden keys to financial success and prosperity:

Earn more money
  • We work constantly to increase your financial rewards.
  • We work according to a set monthly retainer fee.
  • We proactively monitor your progress on a monthly basis so you can adjust quickly to maximize profits.
  • We help you establish systems that allow you to take the pulse of your business, better control your activities, and know exactly the results of your business operations at all times.
Keep more money
  • Most business owners are overpaying their taxes by tens of thousands of dollars every year.
  • When we work together the first service we do is a “COMPREHENSIVE TAX REDUCTION PLAN.”
  • We always find tax savings strategies that apply to you even if you have already been working with a CPA to prepare your taxes.
  • The tax plan will in most cases save you money in the first year and every year going forward.
  • If we are not making you money and saving you many multiples of your investment with us, we are not doing our job!
GROW MORE MONEY
  • We serve as your “Trusted Advisor” to prepare a “Tax Advantaged Wealth Management Plan” customized for you in order to achieve your goals for retirement, legacy and generational planning.
  • We help you create a “Tax Advantaged Wealth Management Plan.”
  • What are the questions you need to ask yourself today?
  • What are the decisions and plans you need to put into motion today to achieve the level of wealth you want at retirement?
  • What are the decisions and plans you need to put into motion today to leave the legacy you want for generations to come?
  • What are the advantages of working with us on a “Tax Advantaged Wealth Management Plan?”
  • We understand the numbers. We start with doing an in-depth review of your personal financial statements and your business financial statements.
  • We understand how taxes work and what you are paying in taxes. We know how to restructure your assets and income in order to minimize taxes and grow maximum wealth.
  • We understand how to turn your retirement income into “tax-free income.”
