Christopher W. Fleming, Inc. and Kenneth D. Prather, Inc. have merged their accounting and tax practices.
The accounting and tax firms of Kenneth D. Prather, Inc. and Christopher W. Fleming, Inc. have merged companies. Together, they will do business as Kenneth D. Prather, Inc. Certified Public Accountant. Both Fleming and Prather are uniquely positioned to provide clients with unmatched services and professional results with some of the most sophisticated technology available.
The goal of the newly-combined team is to continue delivering high quality professional and financial services to clients. “This is a fantastic opportunity to bring together someone with over 30 years of public accounting experience and the youthful exuberance and technological proficiencies that Chris has developed in his nine years in public accounting,” says Prather. The accounting and tax office will offer a broader range of services to meet business and financial needs of clients. A commitment to technology will ensure the availability of time-saving resources and greater support. The team of knowledgeable professionals are committed to greater efficiencies and helping clients benefit financially, both in the fees they pay and in their profitability.
Years ago, Prather, developed his “Total Accounting Package of Services,” referred to as TAP, to provide clients with significant accounting and tax services for a reasonable, monthly fixed fee. This all-inclusive service enables management to eliminate the burden and substantial time requirements involved with bookkeeping and tax- and business-planning issues. It allows management to focus on running their business.
TAP includes the preparation of monthly financial statements, business payroll, all federal and state payroll tax reports, sales tax reports, computation of required payroll tax deposits, preparation of various tax returns, county property rendition and tax planning to reduce personal and business federal and state taxes. In conjunction with TAP, customers are also provided with unlimited consultations regarding business or personal tax and accounting matters.
By allowing the Kenneth D. Prather, Inc. team of dedicated professionals to take over these tasks, clients can be confident that their businesses are in compliance with federal and state regulations. A client’s success is the firm’s main priority.
Virtual Office, previously offered by Christopher W. Fleming, Inc., is a technology that allows clients instant access to their accounting and financial information anytime as long as Internet access is available. Kenneth D. Prather, Inc. will continue to offer this service, allowing small-business owners the ability to access accounting information through the same technology used by large companies. Virtual Office is available to customers at an affordable price.
“Our NetClient CS is smart, simple, secure and personalized for each client,” Fleming mentions. The firm understands the value of security and privacy and offers this online service, keeping information secure. NetClient CS comes with several convenient, easy-to-use online services.
Prather and Fleming both understand that clients are busy running their businesses and often work long after normal business hours. “Our firm recognizes this and understands the demands of today’s competitive climate,” says Prather. The Prather and Fleming team is always looking for ways to make it easier and faster for clients to get the service they need anytime, day or night.
