CAAS Industries Served

Not Just experts – Experts in your business

Our years of experience serving clients in these areas, alongside industry-intensive training and continuing education, allows us to deliver relevant, specific insights and services that are laser-focused on meeting your needs. 

CAAS EDUCATION

We Always Do Our Homework

Whether you’re a K-12 private school, a charter school, a post-secondary school or a career or vocational institution, it’s no small feat to navigate substantial regulatory oversight, adherence to government-mandated rules, and accreditation requirements. Let us make accounting and operations as efficient and effective as possible with CAAS services provided by professionals with extensive backgrounds in the areas of financial aid, Title IV compliance, and more.

CAAS Tax-Exempt Organizations

We know your business by heart

Accounting requirements for tax-exempt organizations are complex and specialized. Many of our team members possess first-hand knowledge from serving on nonprofit committees and in critical board roles. For years, we’ve helped organizations like yours evaluate and implement proper internal controls and maintain compliance with all local, state, and federal regulations.

We also understand that your revenue is dependent upon availability of funding and giving. We can provide recommendations to improve efficiency, manage finances to bolster your success through slow revenue periods, and identify tax-saving opportunities that other firms might overlook.
