In 1986, the year of Top Gun, Ferris Buehler, and Hoosiers, Rich Rackers established an accounting firm focused primarily on tax and accounting work for businesses. Clients quickly began to rely on him for his personable, accurate service, and the firm continued to grow, both in size and in the depth of service offered. As this evolution started to unfold, Rich looked to add a partner to further expand the business and take the firm into the future. That partner was Sergio Fernandez, who joined Rich in 1996 and leads Rackers & Fernandez today.
Since that time, the firm recognized the changing needs of clients, as well as their passion and desire to help them succeed. That’s not something that’s driven by tax and accounting work. It’s driven by serving as an advisor to clients all year long. Playing an active role in a client’s business is important because:
- When it comes time to prepare tax returns, you’re looking at the past. You’re reporting on what has happened rather than setting goals and considering all of your possibilities.
- Deliberate and strategic forethought may not only save you money on your taxes, it can also help you grow your business.
- You’ll be tracking key measures, such as how much you’re spending and areas to enhance profitability, to help your business be more efficient.
- You’ll have an accountability partner in us. We’ll have regular meetings to discuss your goals and what actions have moved forward to get you there. When this happens, things get done!
Rackers and Fernandez will be that advisor for your business.
