Business is complicated and growing even more so. Complex tax laws and elevated financial and business regulations require specialized expertise and a steady perspective. Businesses need a financial advisor who provides that expertise in ways that are both understandable and actionable.
That’s why businesses turn to DP&C for their accounting and financial consulting needs. DP&C isn’t your typical accounting firm. For one thing, our mission isn’t to win more business; it’s to help our clients succeed in theirs. We want to work with businesses, organizations and individuals striving to become better, stronger, more effective and more efficient. We can help them get there.
The work we do is complicated. Our commitment to our clients is not. We have a no-nonsense pledge to speak plainly and provide clear, accurate and timely advice. The powerful results our clients achieve speak for themselves.
We’re DP&C. Sound success begins here.
We are living in unprecedented times. And these times call for caring and thoughtful measures.
Our number one priority is the health and safety of our staff, their families, and you, our clients. We also share your concern for the people of our community, nation and the world at-large. That being said, we also know how important it is that our service to our clients isn’t interrupted, especially now.
We wanted to share some of the measures we are taking here at DP&C (effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020) to ensure we are all safe while our service continues:
1. We will remain open. Maybe not literally, but figuratively. We are shifting our work spaces to home offices to comply with current safety protocols, but our company will remain open and maintain normal working hours. Please understand that we have limited the physical presence in our office to only those staff members required to fulfill essential functions and are closed to the public. The best way to provide your information to us at this time is electronically or by mail. Your tax preparer can send you a link so that you can send us your information through a secure email or we can set you up with a secure portal.
2. Our phones and computers will remain on. We are just as reachable and responsive as we’ve always been. If you need to contact any of our staff or if you have any questions, you can reach out via phone or email. Email is best as we will receive emails right away and will respond as quickly as possible. Our phones will be answered by an auto attendant. We will be checking voicemail periodically and will aim to respond within one business day.
3. Your returns will continue to be processed. We received word on March 20th that the April 15th federal due date for filing returns has been extended to July 15th and that all taxpayers and businesses will have additional time to file and make payments, regardless of amount, without interest or penalties. We will continue to monitor final guidance regarding state filing requirements and provide updates as we know more. In the meantime, we will continue to work diligently to prepare returns and serve our clients.
We will continue to monitor guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Governor Inslee and adjust accordingly what will become our new normal. Please know we remain committed to you and all of the people we serve. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us, we are here for you.
Thank you for your patience during this transition and stay safe,
