About Our Firm
We are a team of experienced business experts dedicated to helping business owners and not-for-profit organizations reach their goals.
Todd & Co. CPA Group, Ltd. was founded in May 2005 with only a handful of bookkeeping and tax clients. Now the firm serves hundreds of individual, business and not-for-profit clients. Our mission is to provide peace of mind to our clients by handling all of their accounting, tax and financial reporting needs. We specialize in providing a holistic strategic plan that incorporates a business owner’s personal goals with their business strategy. Most people think their CPA is only good for churning out tax returns, but our firm is different. Long ago we adopted a fixed fee no-surprises pricing guarantee and we structure our service packages so that we are truly part of your strategic team.

A Firm of the Future
By law, CPA’s are required to have a minimum of 20 hours of continuing education every year, with at least 120 hours cumulatively every three years. On top of our technical training, we work especially hard to stay on top of all of the latest and greatest business tools to streamline our services and to advise our clients on the best practices for working both efficiently and more importantly, working more effectively. We work harder at working smarter by utilizing best-in-class software and tools and forming strategic partnerships with other professional service providers. We’ll share our know-how with you too!
Traditional accounting is historic in nature because it reports on the past. Our services are different because they are structured to be proactive, providing not only insight into your financial situation but we have tools that provide organizations with foresight. Foresight is far better than either hindsight or insight as it allows companies to plan and take preemptive measures instead of just reacting to circumstances. Those companies that are in a position to be proactive and make preemptive strikes, can better adapt to a changing market or economic climate and are more likely to be the winners. The bottom line is, the higher the quality of information, the better the decision making, which leads to better outcomes.
More than Just Problem Solvers
The very nature of accounting causes most CPA’s to be natural problem solvers. It is our goal to be come not only problem solvers but help business owners and not-for-profits to become problem “avoiders” by transitioning your organization from a hindsight or insight dependent to a foresight driven firm. Throughout our careers, we’ve been exposed to hundreds of different industries and business models. We’ve seen what it takes for a business to be successful. In many cases, having the best product or service isn’t an automatic guarantee of success. With our extensive knowledge, tools & strategies, you can think of us as not just problem solvers, but strategic solution providers.
The Customer Journey
Every company provides a customer experience and we consciously try to create a stress-free and enjoyable one for our clients. We try to make each interaction – whether by phone, in person or via email – as easy and understandable as possible. Whether it’s our upfront, no-surprises pricing guarantee or the unlimited telephone and email support included with every package – we work to make sure we understand your expectations and that every interaction with us a delight.
