Business Owner

We’re here for you

Running a business is a 24/7 responsibility. Worrying about your taxes or financial data shouldn’t be.

At Hare, we dig into the minutiae of the numbers so you can focus on the work you love. From helping you plan for and reduce income taxes to strategizing your entity structure, we give you forward-thinking guidance that keeps you moving ahead.

With expertise in the dental, professional services, construction and real estate industries, we know the diverse challenges you face—and that no two days are the same. Our proactive approach keeps you out of the fray.

Have a need outside of our core expertise, no problem. We routinely collaborate with other CPAs, banks, attorneys, valuation firms, investment firms, staffing firms and operational experts. We source the right person for the project. We are your one-stop-shop for getting business done.

We will work with you to develop a scope of work that fits your needs. See our capabilities below for a full list of how we can help.

Make this the year you put an end to tax surprises and bring your dreams to life. Contact us today.
