August 11, 2016 // Franchising.com // Athens, Georgia, United States - Padgett Business Services®, a leading small business tax planning and accounting company, is celebrating 50 years of service.
The Athens-based business - which boasts more than 300 locations across the U.S. and Canada - not only provides tax planning and accounting services, but also assists businesses with financial statements, tax compliance and payroll services. Padgett Business Services® primarily serves small businesses with fewer than 20 employees, which accounts for about 90 percent of the country’s small businesses.
“For 50 years, Padgett Business Services® has helped small businesses across the country understand their tax planning and accounting needs,” Roger Harris, president and COO, said. “We’ve played an essential role in making sure small businesses are armed for success, and we hope to continue building on that impact for many years to come.”
Walter Padgett launched Padgett Business Services® in 1966 after witnessing local business owners struggling with the financial aspects of running their companies. His idea was to help those small businesses thrive. Half a century later, Padgett Business Services® continues to run on those same principles.
With dual headquarters in Georgia and Massachusetts and its network of more than 300 offices across North America, Padgett Business Services® is credited with assisting tens of thousands of small businesses with their tax planning and preparation needs.
“Simply put, there is no other company in the market that does what we do - we are more than experts in accounting, we are the small business pros,” said Steve Rafsky, CEO. “Several big-name competitors have tried to enter this segment of tax and accounting services, but Padgett has stood the test of time in this market. Our secret lies in years of building client relationships and teaching accountants in the brand the best ways to do just that.”
Padgett Business Services® also recently announced a new Business Growth Program for Professionals that provides tax and accounting professionals who operate independent businesses a fully-supported network.
