We conduct business The Abacus™ Way. The Abacus™ Way is both an attitude and a process where your best outcome is our destination. All efforts are focused with that end in mind. In order to achieve a goal, to arrive at a destination, there must be a process with specific actionable steps.

Our individual tax advisors, business tax advisors, and accountants are not only highly skilled but also filled with passion. Passion for the numbers. Passion for the business. Passion for you to win. What we are not are bean counters, single-minded number-crunchers who merely tally every cent that goes in or out of your accounts. We are true advisors, with real wisdom to impart that can help you make great choices to protect, monitor, and grow your dollars.
Abacus™ clients benefit from our team’s extensive experience in all aspects of accounting services. With backgrounds in international and regional public accounting firms, as well as Fortune 200 companies, our advisors offer hundreds of combined years of experience.
Business and personal tax laws are always changing. We stay abreast of the complex regulations and issues governing numerous industries and invest in continuing education by regularly attending training seminars and conducting internal training programs. This is one of the reasons we’re able to attract and retain the very best in the field, from all across the nation.
Abacus™ CPAs are wholly dedicated to helping our clients achieve their financial objectives. It’s our passion, the driving force behind all our work, and the reason we are recognized as accounting services leaders in the greater Springfield area.
Empower Yourself — Real value is in the planning. It’s empowering. You know where you stand at all times and what decisions you need to make.
You will always understand what the numbers mean to you, in your unique situation, with real-world application. You’ll know what’s coming and how to respond… in advance, for the very best outcome possible.
We strive to provide our clients with every opportunity to minimize their taxes within the framework of the law. From small issues to large, we utilize state-of-the-art technology, research, and training to ensure you receive the best, timely advice and innovative tax planning strategies. We handle individual, corporate, non-profit, estate, trust and partnership tax planning.
Business Health — We understand business. We know business financials are much more than tax returns. Your financial statement determines how banks, investors, and others see your business. We can help you represent your business properly.
Numbers are the language of business. Understanding the numbers is what makes the business run.
A good system for knowing your numbers is essential, it makes managing your business so much easier… and more profitable!
Let us help you with your system, and make your financial statement healthier with better guidance and smarter decisions.
Beyond the Numbers — Having every advantage requires going beyond the numbers, that’s why our team of Abacus™ Advisors doesn’t stop there.
We know how to help you build better teams, with everything from getting the right people on board and placing them in the right roles, to bringing out the best in individuals by emphasizing their people skills and identifying their natural abilities.
Consulting is where science meets the art of business. Consulting done right can make all the difference.
You can benefit from bringing us in for business valuations, human resources assistance, internal control evaluations, computer software, fraud investigations, succession planning, and other consultative services.
Effective Communication — Our team has developed the ALIGN process to ensure every measure is taken, every step complete.
