Who We Are
We are a professional full service accounting firm
in South Florida serving widely diversified businesses
and individuals. Our services are tailored to the needs of
each client, from small to mid-size businesses, non-profit
organizations and to individuals who need tax and estate
Fresh ideas, new perspectives and technical expertise save our clients thousands of dollars and a lot of worry. All client matters are handled in strictest confidentiality with the highest ethical standards.
What We Do
As a full service accounting firm, we provide tax, accounting and auditing services. We also work very closely with our clients as a trusted advisor and have established many relationships with trusted third parties in other service areas such as:
We believe in working with the specialist that we recommend to ensure that our clients receive the best possible advice and service. We are happy to attend meetings, review recommendations and discuss alternatives.
Our partners have varied experiences, some have been with the "Big Four" accounting firms and with public companies and thus have valuable insights that many small firms cannot provide. We can assist young public companies with CFO outsourcing, SEC Compliance and with audit preparation. Our partners have been involved in many entrepreneurial pursuits and are adept at writing business plans and have relationships with individuals and companies with access to capital markets.
We encourage the use of technology to limit errors and improve efficiency in all aspects of our accounting practice. We have a state of the art facility that utilizes the latest in tax and accounting software. We also encourage electronic filing, which we believe reduces input errors by the IRS. We also promote the use of an electronic tax organizer which we send out annually to our existing clients. The electronic organizer, if properly completed, reduces errors by our staff and allows us to keep our fees reasonable by allowing us to focus on the critical tax issues of our clients. For new clients, we have a downloadable organizer that can be completed to facilitate the tax preparation process.
What We Value
At Koutoulas & Relis, LLC, we believe that integrity is the foundation of our public accounting practice. We believe integrity is what makes great professionals and we sometimes have to make difficult choices about accepting or continuing engagements; in more cases, our professional integrity helps clients understand and correct compliance issues. We are proud of successfully completing our AICPA Peer review for the year ended November 30, 2007 without comment.
We believe that fairness is the key to the way we treat clients and employees. We believe that treating people fairly does not mean treating everyone the same. It means taking the time to understand each client or employee's specific situations and needs and giving each person an equal chance to succeed.
We believe that we should be socially responsible and that it's our individual and collective responsibility to care about our communities. Our staff and firm is actively involved in our community and we encourage commitments of time and energy to such endeavors.
We believe that we should enjoy our work. Yes, we work hard on every client's engagement. But we also appreciate our co-workers, enjoy our facilities and share good times. Loyal, happy and dedicated employees are the reason we can provide the best client service in the business.
