Business is good. I am pleased to report Eide Bailly continues to grow at a steady pace and, this year, experienced a moderate increase of 4 percent. The accounting profession has significantly changed with larger players and more intense competition. We have adjusted our goals and strategies, and are moving forward with refocused energy.

An important part of our strategy is to continually look at our service mix and geographic footprint, and ask ourselves, “What can we do to serve our clients better?” We are actively filling the gaps and anticipating future needs:

  • Non-Profit Expansion
  1. – This past year,  four experienced partners joined our non-profit team, bringing new knowledge and real-world experience to our growing non-profit practice.
  • National Tax Office
  1. – We created a National Tax Office with dedicated resources to keep in-tune with changes in Washington; this has enhanced our ability to keep clients informed of tax changes that affect them.
  • Cost Segregation Studies
  1. – A company that specializes in cost segregation studies joined our Firm, which allows us to help more of our clients improve their cash flow and minimize their tax liability by accelerating depreciation schedules, as approved by the IRS.
  • Expansion
  1. – Utah-based Schmitt, Griffiths, Smith & Co. (SGS) joined our Firm, which geographically connects our Phoenix, Denver, Boise and Billings practice areas and strengthens our technology service offerings. SGS is a leader in the sales, consultation, implementation and support of business software applications, and was recently ranked in the 2012 top 100 value-added re-sellers by Accounting Today.

Maintaining a positive growth rate in our current economy is not easy. I am proud of the people at Eide Bailly and their perseverance. We work hard, and we play hard. We adapt to change and are nimble in our actions. We enjoy serving our clients and going the extra mile for them. We are a CPA firm of the future!”
