Howser and Associates, located at 5411F Backlick Rd Springfield, VA 22151, has been in business since 1982. In that time, it earned a well-deserved reputation for excellent accounting and tax services.
Larry Howser, the president and owner of Howser and Associates, commented, “We have always done the best work we could for every single one of our clients since 1982, and that adds up to a lot of years of deadlines, great memories, great relationships and great service. I have no worries at all about how our clients will get serviced in the future with Sareen and Associates. I’ve seen a lot in my years in this business, and they are top-notch. It definitely makes the exit as owner a little easier”.
Arun Sareen, president of Sareen and Associates, stated, “We are always looking to increase both our client base and our geographic footprint within the United States, but it has to be a partner that shares our vision, our commitment to excellent service, and, of course, the same level of professional competencies we have developed over 25 years of providing tax, accounting, payroll and business consulting to our small business clients. I’m happy to say we found that professional services firm in Howser and Associates Ltd., and we couldn’t be more delighted with this union.
The only difference Howser and Associates clients will see is that they will now have an even greater reservoir of experience to draw on for their tax and accounting needs, and, will now also have the option of some additional business services that they may wish to avail themselves of. We welcome those clients to Sareen and Associates.
And we are very happy to have a physical presence in the city of Springfield, which we consider a fantastic location. It’s a great area, and a great business environment for us, since we can provide local service to many of our existing clients in that area.”
Mr. Sareen also commented, “It’s been apparent to us here at Sareen and Associates for some time that there are many, many accounting and tax firms that were started some time ago, and are still making money, but that now have difficulty meeting the current high bar of capital investment and technology expertise required to effectively compete in today’s fast moving, hyper-competitive environment. They do an honest assessment of their ability to continue to stay competitive going forward, and they come to us for a solution that benefits both firms. We have the capital to keep investing in the acquired business, the expertise to integrate and manage the business from an operational perspective, and, the familiarity with technology platforms and user technology to offer all our clients the best experience possible in terms of accounting, payroll and tax work.”
