Accountants & Advisors for Entrepreneurial Minds

About Us

The Difference Between Accounting & Advising

Entrepreneurs are people who turn ideas into action. They have a way of thinking that values self-reliance and strives for distinction through excellence. The kind of thinking that is the difference between business as usual and unusually good business. At Lear & Pannepacker, we think that way on behalf of our clients. That is because our approach is both personalized and strategic—it’s the difference between accounting and advising—solving today’s tax planning challenges with modern solutions, while keeping our eye focused on meeting your long-term goals. We are proud to provide the highest quality professional accounting, auditing, bookkeeping, and tax planning for businesses, personal finances, or not-for-profit organizations.
