Professional Service, WorldWide
Founded by Tina and Jason Watson, the Watson CPA Group has provided worldwide business consulting, accounting and tax preparation from our Colorado Springs offices since 1997. We use secure client portals to safely exchange financial information, 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 8 full-time tax and consultation professionals including 3 CPAs on our team, the Watson CPA Group consults on corporate structures, S corp elections (even late S corp elections back to Jan 1 2016), 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.
Note how accounting and payroll are not mentioned- we have partnered with Alerion Business Solutions to provide these services. Doug Davidson, CPA, and his team work 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 tax preparation.
This service spectrum is an incredible benefit to our clients, including our professional network of knowledgeable Colorado CPAs, attorneys and certified financial planners. 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. And No, we are not the stuffy downtown firm. We are your advocate! [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.
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.
The One Call Team
The Watson CPA Group recently expanded its depth and quality of services to our clients. We were concerned about our clients only having access to individual silos of quality advice from tax planning to small business consultation to retirement planning to estate strategies. Picture a drive through Wisconsin farmlands. Each silo individually doing the right thing, but not collectively representing and protecting your interests.
Therefore, we have connected with professionals who are independent of the Watson CPA Group, yet work collaboratively to form a singular financial team under one roof, quite literally. Tax and Small Business Consultants. Financial Advisors and Certified Financial Planners (CFPs). Biz Law Attorneys. Estate Planning Attorneys. Insurance Specialists. Mortgage Brokers. All in our offices, working side by side with the Watson CPA Group. Your CPA tax accountant can kick the can down the road by asking you to talk to your estate attorney or advisor, and vice versa. With the Watson CPA Group, we directly coordinate the various financial professionals in your life to help ensure the advice you are receiving is accurate and comprehensive. [more]

Colorado Springs CPAs Providing Worldwide Service
Most of our clients live their lives or operate their business outside of the physical reach of our Colorado CPAs. The Watson CPA Group was one of the first business services and consultation firms to utilize a client portal. We partnered with Citrix Sharefile to give you encrypted, secure protection for sending and receiving your sensitive financial information, and the portal is available to you 24/7 anywhere in the world.
Let us work together to develop and implement a proactive yet nimble plan for your future!
