Firm Profile
The firm was organized in 1977 by M.J. (Jeff) Porter, CPA, to provide full service accounting for various companies throughout the Southeast. Mr. Porter's background includes both audit and tax experience with a big eight CPA firm along with a local accounting firm. Throughout his career, he has seen the need for high quality local CPA firms to service businesses throughout the Southeast. Since its formation, the firm has continuously expanded its staff to hire, develop and promote trained professionals. The firm currently has four partners who have practical working experience with both private industry and the public accounting sector.

The firm's office is located in the Sandy Springs/Powers Ferry Road area of Atlanta. Present plans call for the firm to remain in the same general location and to expand the staff gradually over the next several years to insure that it remains able to keep pace with the fast changing accounting and tax environment.

The firm's basic business philosophy is to be of service to our clients. We strive to provide services with the highest standards and ethics of our profession. The firm also recognizes that a CPA's dedication to improving his/her intellectual, technical and overall professional development is an ongoing opportunity: therefore, staff is encouraged to increase their proficiency through participation in professional seminars, reading professional publications, and taking part in other educational programs.

Our staff also has experience in the taxation of foreign individuals and entities who make investments in the United States. The firm prepares tax returns for foreign individuals and entities applying their expertise of the tax treaties that the United States has entered into with several European countries. The firm's principal, M.J. Porter, travels annually to Europe to meet various clients and their finanical advisors to discuss their Unites States investment objectives and goals.

We believe in the value of relationships. We view every client relationship like a partnership, and truly believe that our success is a result of your success.

We are committed to providing close, personal attention to our clients. We take pride in giving you the assurance that the personal assistance you receive comes from years of advanced training, technical experience and financial acumen. Our continual investment of time and resources in professional continuing education, state-of-the-art computer technology and extensive business relationships is indicative of our commitment to excellence.
