Michael A. Veneman CPA, PSC Reviews (1)
I am CEO for my service Company, Professional [redacted], Inc. We employed [redacted], CPA for tax preparation from 2006 to 2012. [redacted] included his son, [redacted] in working to meet our needs that grew to include bookkeeping in 2009. Our problems with the front office & [redacted] began mid 2102. We hired [redacted] to do our bookkeeping who contacted [redacted] 9/12 to 12/12. She worked via phone & email with [redacted] to correctly structure our bookkeeping consistent with what the [redacted] CPA firm required. In October, [redacted] noted a missed $500 payment for CPA services made in August. We notified [redacted] and he asked for a report from our bank. We have paid their firm by company credit card since 2011 and found it odd they would not have their own gateway access to verify client payments, we do! We then asked our new bookkeeper to audit our 2011 books for payments to our CPA and a quick glance revealed a missed $300 payment. I called the front desk in December and [redacted] who took our payments over the phone had our bank ID/Passcodes and would review our bank account and get back with me! [redacted] was the only person to have our bank account information for access. I stopped my day's work at hand and returned to the office to change all bank ID/Passcodes for our accounts. [redacted] had appeared in our office the prior year asking all kinds of questions about how our company was run. She appeared with her husband in our office during his interview for employment. We thought it odd she again was in the mix. Lastly, we had a new tax preparer review 2011 tax documents prepared by [redacted] and he listed our Company as a Vendor doing business with a form 1125-A. Historically, this has never been done for our tax return to the IRS we are a service and do not itemize "Cost of Goods Sold". We understand it to be 101 for good CPA work.
