At Balcerzak Financial Services, our mission is to become a Trusted Advisor to you by focusing on two main objectives:
Maximizing the profits of your business by providing timely, accurate financial information and sound, pertinent management advice,
Minimizing the tax burden on your profits by providing thorough, leading edge tax advice and planning.
Our ability to be a TRUSTED ADVISOR to you is based upon the following core values:
Your financial information is not only private data which needs to be protected but, in the case of your business, a critical asset and competitive advantage. At Balcerzak Financial Services we will flawlessly execute our fiduciary responsibility to protect and safeguard your personal and financial data.
It is a critical component to our mission that we be an independent, objective source of truthful information to you. Even when the data we have to share is bad news, we will not sway from our obligation to be honest and transparent.
Balcerzak Financial Services will continually educate our team to be knowledgeable on all relevant financial and tax topics. However, we also recognize the need to bring in outside experts as needed when the topics is specific enough to require subject matter expertise our firm may not have. Finally, we have established the necessary internal processes to insure the accuracy of the financial data we provide to you.
We serve small business and understand that one of the scarcest resources is time. We value your time and your need for timely responses to all inquiries.
