Accountants and bookkeepers should be guided by principle and order.  We are committed to guiding business owners to build financial momentum, freedom, and be wise with their money.

While tax & accounting can sound bland, our purpose it to help maximize the efforts you put into your work so that we can build financial momentum that transforms your family tree for generations.  We will always act in your best interests to encourage wise financial decisions – and nothing is better than Dave Ramsey’s advice!

We help encourage people to pay off their debt, build cash reserves, invest wisely, and build financial momentum.  No other system or coach does a better job of this than Dave Ramsey and his Financial Peace University.

Our Values: When you choose to work with a professional organization that will play such an integral role in the future of your business, it’s important to not only know the people in the company, but also understand what ideals they are pursuing.  To us, Values are the standard to which we measure our conduct; it’s what we shoot for in our behavior.  Below is a list of Nuance Financial’s values so you can get an idea of the culture we’ve built at our firm.

Trustworthy: We’ll always act in your best interests and follow through on expectations. We are your fiduciary guides.

Competent: We’ve built a team of Tax experts with diverse experience and perspectives.  When working with us, you’ll receive the caliber of services that large businesses receive from “mega-firms” because that’s where our CPA Nick Meester cultivated His abilities.

Enjoyable: We don’t want to “Lord” expertise over clients – but instead be down-to-earth guides.  While we’re not perfect, we want to seek humility, kindness, & respect with everyone we interact with.

Rigorous: We’re not in the business of preparing & filing taxes, we guide businesses to utilize every possible strategy to mitigate their tax burden.  We’ll dive deep into your case to make sure we’ve completed a comprehensive tax analysis.
