There are many CPAs out there that can do the work BUT very few CPAs who really understand the problems of small businesses and are genuinely willing to put effort and time to make a difference. We are amazed by Akif CPA's professionalism, tax knowledge, communication, and small business know-how.

Efficiency doesn't just seem to be a word, but their way of doing business. In this day and age it is refreshing to find a company that puts the clients first. The staff is only a phone call away and there's never an issue that can't be resolved in that first phone call. Thank you so much for making me feel like such a valued client. I would recommend to anybody that's needing a CPA to give Akif CPA a call. You won't be disappointed.
