Professional Service, WorldWide
Founded by Tina and Jason Watson, the Watson CPA Group has provided worldwide business consulting and tax preparation from our Colorado Springs offices since 1997. We use secure client portals to safely exchange financial information, giving you access to excellent service and advice, while saving you time and resources. In person appointments are nice, even better with donuts but are not required. Over 65% of our clients are outside of Colorado!
With 9 full-time consultation professionals including Certified Public Accountants and Certified Financial Planners on our team, the Watson CPA Group consults on corporate structures, S corp elections (even late S corp elections back to Jan 1 2017), tax strategies, business coaching, industry analysis, executive benefits, retirement planning including individual 401k plans, exit strategies, business valuations, divorce litigation support, income tax modeling and tax representation. Here are some topics that we routinely discuss with our small business owners-
Note how accounting and bookkeeping are not mentioned- we are focused on consultation and therefore we have partnered with Alerion Business Solutions and Aligaen Accounting to provide these services side by side with us in our office. Some firms have this depth, yet very few offer a consultative approach beyond the nuts and bolts of accounting and business tax return preparation.
This service spectrum is an incredible benefit to our clients, including our professional network of knowledgeable Colorado CPAs, corporate and estate planning attorneys, and Certified Financial Planners. Why play messenger when we can bring this service spectrum under on roof? Plus, our firm will be your point of contact as you travel through the cycles of your personal and business lives. Many accountants and business consultants are only compliance oriented, and while government and IRS compliance is critical, being proactive is equally important.
We have the depth of a downtown firm without the stuffiness. The Watson CPA Group will be your advocate by putting you in a position to make informed decisions! [more]
Simple Fee Ranges
The Watson CPA Group prides itself in being transparent by having a simple and reasonable fee structure. Straight billable hours? Gone. Fees based on the number of tax forms? Not us. While some projects cannot be firmly quoted, most business services and tax return preparation will fit into our fee ranges. We do not nickel and dime our client relationships. Extra time spent today is easily forgotten tomorrow. [more]
Outside of typical business services, consultation and tax preparation, we have identified four niche competencies for our group of Colorado Springs CPAs. Small businesses and S Corporations. Rental properties and management consultation. Flight crew tax preparation and per diem calculations (Jason used to be an airline pilot). And ExPatriates, or ExPats for short. We protect the fortress by not doing everything, but everything we do, we do very well.
Having said that, we now only specialize in small business owners, S corporations and partnerships. We also leave room for the individual tax client who does not own a business but has complex tax issues needing expertise and wealth management. In general our client base is comprised of consultants, engineers, financial advisors, physicians, chiropractors, doctors, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, insurance agents, photographers (the profitable ones), attorneys, online retailers, FBA retailers, real estate agents, among several others. We also have several medical groups and financial advisor teams operating a tiered entity arrangement where each individual owns an S corporation. [more]
Expectations of Our Clients
We select our clients on two important criteria. First, we expect our clients to be open, honest and responsive in communication. Second, we prefer to work with clients who view our partnership as a collaboration, where our challenges and successes are shared. Unlike transactional relationships, we'd rather work with you than for you. Having said that, we understand some people just want a transactional 'latte' and don't want to get too involved steaming the milk- that is OK too.
Let us work together to develop and implement a proactive yet nimble plan for your future!
