Our Experience and Commitment
Our partners and staff are highly educated and trained but, more importantly, they have the “hands on” experience to help you make informed decisions about all your financial concerns. Each of them understands that while the details are critically important, the big picture must remain clearly in focus at all times.
The partners and professinal staff members of Bass, Solomon & Dowell, LLP are members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Illinois CPA Society. Through continuing education, seminars, and membership in various professional, civic, and charitable organizations, each member of our firm maintains a broad and deep knowledge of our subject matter, which can be drawn on collectively for the particularly difficult or unusual challenge.
Our partners have diverse personal and professional backgrounds as well as diverse business experiences. Our staff members bring the same personal and professional diversity to our firm. Many of our staff members have received the vast majority of their professional training with our firm; in fact, many members were hired by our firm directly from undergraduate programs. A CPA should be passionate about continual learning; ours is a changing field, beset by changes emanating from government, professions, the economy, and client-specific situations. Our members receive not only the required annual hours of continuing professional education, but an excess number of study hours.
Our goal is to provide our clients with the necessary accounting, auditing, tax, and consulting services to help them achieve their financial, personal, and organizational objectives. In order to achieve that goal, we need to have exceptional analytical skills and we must keep current on trends and changes that affect our clients. Fundamentally, however, we must be good listeners and communicators.
We are committed to helping ensure the success of our clients.
