Kuenzi & Company is a full service public accounting and business consulting firm that provides services to clients located throughout the Pacific Northwest. Our roots reach back beyond our founding in 1978 to rural America that shaped its owners’ vision and values. We have built our reputation one client and one person at a time. We share our business acumen with clients in various industries, serving their needs for business planning, growth strategies, financial communication, estate/succession planning, accounting/attest services, and tax return preparation.
Vision and Values
At Kuenzi & Company, we strive to provide leadership in areas where we are called upon to serve individuals and the business community. We have found that local economies are increasing their focus on the global business community, as well as the expanding Internet. Business principles remain the same, but the tools we use have changed.
The expertise required of a CPA firm is increasing, and as a result, universities have moved to five-year degree programs for accounting graduates. We plan to continue earning our status as an A-rated firm, and have taken steps to assure ourselves that a commensurate level of technical and service quality is maintained.
Our focus is on helping clients identify and solve a wide range of business challenges. While we are skilled in creating and interpreting financial data, we also bring years of entrepreneurial experience and common sense to our clients and their other advisors.
We believe in the value of relationships. We view our client relationships like a partnership, and believe our success is the result of our clients' success. We are committed to taking a deep interest in our clients and providing them with close, personal attention.
We believe in business principles based on honesty and integrity. This encompasses our work products as well as the representations we make to our clients and others. We believe our clients, the financial community, and others must be able to have confidence in our services. We will recommend other consultants if it results in our client's best interests being served.
We believe our people, their knowledge, and their skills, is our firm's greatest asset. Our continual investment of time and resources in continuing professional education, state-of-the-art computer technology and extensive business relationships is indicative of our commitment to excellence. We are sensitive to our employees' needs, especially as they relate to their families and personal relationships.
Professional Standards and Quality Assurance
In complying with the rigorous standards of our profession, our firm strictly adheres to all technical and ethical requirements of our governing entities. As part of these standards, our firm undertakes a quality review of our auditing and accounting services by an independent CPA firm, which verifies that we meet or exceed the technical requirements of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Kuenzi & Company has a written quality control manual with established standards for our accounting and auditing practice. It addresses the competence and quality of individuals considered for employment as well as procedures followed in our work. All work performed by Kuenzi & Company personnel is adequately reviewed and supervised. While we have confidence in the expertise and competence of our personnel, the review process provides assurance that all pertinent issues have been considered and that nothing has been overlooked. It also facilitates training and exchange of ideas within our service team.
Our staff has access to technical information on professional standards, and tax and accounting subjects from the Thomson Reuters Checkpoint Research Libraries. We also use work programs and checklists from software licensed from Practitioners Publishing Company (PPC).
We consult with a network of respected business associates, including CPA Connect, a leading national network of local CPA firms, who can be called upon for assistance or to render a second opinion. In certain circumstances we consult with or advise our clients to consult with other professionals for their expertise in particular areas. In this manner we supplement the experience relevant to a particular industry and the human capital we bring to our clients. In certain circumstances we work through a wholly owned subsidiary, Greenfield Consulting, LLC, to facilitate consulting services for business ownership and management succession.
