The ball is always in our court; we accept responsibility for our job.
We never accept things for what they are. We always look for what they can be, could be, or should be. We have instilled that thought process in everyone we work with.
We are separated from other firms by our philosophy. We are in the mainstream in our philosophy on taxation and financial reporting, but we leave no stone unturned in trying to find legitimate methods for reducing taxable income while showing the best financial results possible within the confines of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. We are experts in the areas of timing of the reporting of income and timing of deductions, in accordance with the differences in financial accounting rules and tax rules. We take advantage of differences in the rules when it serves our clients, often in areas that most CPA’s never even consider.
When our clients are hungry for change, we make a difference overnight.
We often need to help clients to eliminate unnecessary financial reporting detail and complexity so they can see their financial picture more clearly.
We often change the way our clients look at things to get them to understand their own cost structure in all of its fixed and variable elements. Our clients cut cost and/or raise prices when they better understand their cost structure.

M Graham & Associates Inc, CPA’s accounting services focus on cost accounting and chart of account management to get our clients better information. Our clients make more money when they have better information because they make better decisions.
Consulting: All of our consulting is a byproduct of our financial reporting. In a sense, we do the problem solving for free once we get involved as your CPA firm; it is part of the cost of the financial reporting process. No other middle market CPA firm that we are familiar with functions the same way we do.
Most companies can improve, and sometimes the things they need to do are obvious to third parties. When we detect necessary changes, we voice our opinions. When clients are not in crisis, we patiently pursue necessary change as long as a client makes some small positive incremental changes at reasonable intervals, and as long as we can help along the way.
