Cropper Accountancy Corp conducted our year-end audit in an efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable manner. It was a first-year
audit, and they came up to speed on our business model and practices very quickly. Concurrently,
they took the time to advise us of upcoming GAAP and tax rulings that could affect our business,
and how to navigate the changes. John, Bryce and Emily are more than our auditors - we consider
them partners in our quest to expand and improve our business.
