A question that many often ponder when they are choosing what direction they are going with their career and life.
One decision we made 5 years ago was to open up our accounting office dcs Accounting & Tax Services in Hellertown. Many times it is hard to leave something that is comfortable like having a job that you have a regular source of income coming in, to build an accounting practice from ground zero. Yes we built our practice one account at a time with having no income coming in from a job. It was a time that tested us but we took it from the standpoint of who can we help next with their accounting and tax needs.
There is fear in going for your dreams, but many times you have to face fear head on to move forward in life. When we were looking for a place for our office it was very exciting but yet difficult to find the right location. We looked for a few weeks and settled on a place on W. Water Street in Hellertown. We prepared the office in July 2009 by painting, setting up workstations and getting things in order. Our office officially opened in August of 2009. It was an exciting time but scary too. We worked hard to get the business up and running, basically hitting the pavement letting people know about dcs Accounting & Tax.
We decided on services to be offered Income Taxes for individuals and small businesses along with bookkeeping services. It was a time of getting started and moving forward with growing one account at a time and sharing with people our services.
During the 5 years we have increased our service to serve the entire Lehigh Valley to having accounts throughout the USA. We both are certified Quickbooks ProAdvisors in traditional Quickbooks and QuickBooks online. Our CPA David has completed 2 peer reviews which is a major accomplishment for a firm our size and now we have added services of Compilation & Reviews , Non-profit Organization 990 Income Tax Returns. We also do Quickbooks Consultations along with Payroll for small business owners. We also added a very unique service to our firm and that is Daily Money Management which helps with budgeting, bill paying, form filling out, mail sorting, along with account reconciliation of bank accounts and credit card accounts. What makes us unique in this service offering, Maria is a former social worker who worked in Geriatric Social Work for 10+ years along with over 6 + years of business experience this adds a unique addition to our firm to make us one of the few firms to have such experience in the Lehigh Valley.
We believe in service to help those in need we have actively helped do fundraisers and drives to help non-profits in the Lehigh Valley and beyond some places we have done this for were Toys for Tots, Robin Hood Foundation, Red Cross of the Lehigh Valley, Hellertown & Saucon Valley Food bank, and Holy Family Manor just to name a few along with contributing to other organizations that are in our immediate community like the Hellertown/Lower Saucon Little League.
