"Bill
is a knowledgeable, responsive and fantastic CPA. When I first contacted Bill, I had recently started a consulting firm. He was very" patient with me as I was focused more on my clientele than keeping up with my administrative tasks. Our first meeting was very comfortable and educational. He listened to my needs and concerns, and provided several options for me to consider. As I chose projects over keeping up with expenses and providing timely tax information, he continued to be patient. If I had a question, he was quick to respond with a thorough response. I look forward to Bill completing my 2014 tax return, and guiding my financial future. He has earned my trust.

Accountants

When it comes to doing your taxes and finances, one of the biggest questions that often comes up is whether you should hire an accountant or just handle the matter yourself. Although accountants can be pricey, they often provide many benefits and protections that you can't get by doing the books yourself.

As an entrepreneur with a business idea but little business experience, I recognized I needed help and turned to Fuse Financial Partners.
Galesburg Accountants Provider Name Locked
and his team of Fuse Financial Partners professionals were instrumental in the successful launch and sustained growth of our company.
From the initial planning stages, Fuse Financial Partners helped us with their accounting and CFO services. Rolling up their sleeves and working with us, Fuse Financial Partners has enjoyed helping our business grow more than 50% every year since we opened our doors 5 years ago. We are thankful to have been a client of Fuse Financial Partners along the way and look forward to the years ahead.

The process was smooth and easy. They had deep knowledge which benefited me and in the end saved me money. Just what I wanted from my accounting firm. After using this service for many years I can't think of going anywhere else.

Do yourselves a favor and stay as far away from them as possible. We chose them based on the glowing reviews here on angies list and considering my experience with them i wonder how it is that they ever got such reviews. when we first hired them, they were great. they took care of our quarterly business tax needs very promptly, but thats where the good stopped. After the initial assistance they were almost impossible to get in touch with. they utilize a generic email account that is poorly managed. each time we asked for an email to communicate with them they would give us the generic email, and each time we emailed that generic email address we would get zero response and would then have to write multiple times then resort to calling them to communicate. we would explain that we were extremely busy with our business and preferred to communicate via email, and over and over our emails would fall into a black hole. They even came close to missing a quarterly tax filing because of this. in addition to this, on one instance we had submitted our quarterly tax information to them including our quickbooks file and without any tax planning or even a word, they submitted our taxes electronically and even submitted for money to be paid from our business checking account. To me this is a deal breaker to have money paid and taxes submitted without my prior approval. Actually we were wanting to pay more in taxes for this quarter, and had informed them of this which was ignored by them, instead they submitted a minimum amount. At this same time we had asked if they would have a phone conversation with our personal financial planner so that everyone was on the same page. Even after scheduling an appointment for a phone conversation they bailed on the appointment with no word or heads up to our advisor. This advisor is extremely busy and was doing us a favor to have this conversation and for them to totally ignore him and the appointment was was extremely uncalled for and unprofessional. Even after all this unprofessionalism, we were willing to have a conversation with them to get on the same page and figure out how to move forward. it took over a week to schedule the meeting because they could not make themselves available to us, and we had to reschedule several other meetings to accommodate them. we scheduled a 8:45am appt with

to discuss things...a coming to

meeting if you will. Neither her or
Galesburg Accountants Provider Name Locked
showed up for our meeting, and when the receptionist called
Galesburg Accountants Provider Name Locked
on the phone i could hear
Galesburg Accountants Provider Name Locked
saying that she had no appt and would never set up a meeting so early. mind you, we have the emails showing it was her idea to meet at that specific time. After waiting for 45 min for her or
Galesburg Accountants Provider Name Locked
to get there we left and informed the receptionist that

needed to call us. Now this is where it gets interesting.

called us and left a message saying that she has a handicapped son that she helps out with his children. i am completely understanding of peoples personal issues, but i feel they have no place in a business setting. in the 30+ second voice mail she said handicapped son 7 times, and that she was sorry she had a handicapped son, and then proceeded to say that we missed

by 5 min. Now if that was true we would have seen

on our way out of the building, and what she failed to understand is that we did not miss
Galesburg Accountants Provider Name Locked
by 5 min, her and
Galesburg Accountants Provider Name Locked
missed us by over 45 min. We informed her that we did not see a way for us to move our business relationship forward and we would not be using them anymore. After this we got a narcissistic rant from
Galesburg Accountants Provider Name Locked
about how he is the best tax planner in the metro atlanta area and of course we are free to go with whoever we want, but we will never find another tax accountant and planner as good as he is. all i can say is WOW! So after all this i contemplated whether or not to put something up here since this is were i found them. Then yesterday we got an email that they did our 4th quarter taxes, and i was mind boggled. I called

and informed her that we had moved on and would not need their services, she thanked us then proceeded to go into the same spill about how wonderful

is and how he is the best tax accountant and tax planner in the metro area, and we will never find anyone better. Again...WOW! I informed her that we never saw any of that and if their professionalism had have been on the same level as they think

planning skills were that we would not be in the situation we are currently in. She then told me i was not a very nice person...actually that i was a horrible person.

doesn't just file your taxes, he supports you and backs you up. He also does a great job at getting the maximum tax refund for us. He is a registered agent, too. We have used him for the past 10 years and will continue to use him in the future.

It took a little longer for them to get to do the roof in the beginning because of the weather. They wanted it to be in the 40s to do the roof. From the beginning it took about 2 1/2 months for them to get to us. It has been finished for about a month. Time will tell to see if there are any problems with leaking and so on. We do not live in the property. It is a rental property of ours. They were very professional. Returned our calls if we had any questions. Cleanup after the job was very good. Even though we had no face to face contact (we live in West Virginia and the house is in Pa.) they took care of everything. I would recommend them for further roofing jobs. They were very professional.

was incredibly helpful to me and my business. As a small business

Quickbooks. Her expert knowledge of Quickbooks Online helped me to get

Would definitely work with her again in the future!
