  • Strategic

    We are focused on staying connected with our small business clients by meeting on a monthly or quarterly basis. This gives our clients the reassurance that they are on track to meet their financial and operational goals and provides our staff with the opportunity to plan for the client’s upcoming year.

  • Proactive

    Accounting, auditing, bookkeeping, and taxes are important elements in running a business. At Steensma we offer clients assistance and provide ideas to make informed business decisions throughout the year. It is essential that our clients do not have an unpleasant surprise from a profit/loss and/or tax standpoint. Our goal is to minimize our client’s tax liability within the rules of the IRS or at least prepare them well in advance for the taxes they will owe.
