Washington Audit, Tax and Consulting
Washington state offices
We became one of the Pacific Northwest’s largest accounting and consulting firms with our acquisition of Knight Vale & Gregory (KVG) in September 2001. Founded in 1921, KVG was one of the premiere firms in the region. Today our growing team of professionals serves more than 675 midsized and owner-managed firms, as well as individuals in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
We are committed to bringing you practical solutions that draw on industry best practices, as well as innovative ideas about accounting systems, internal controls, information technology and other critical aspects of your operations. Our team will discuss possible strategies with you, so you can make informed decisions and position your organization to save money, manage risk and become even more efficient.
Commitment to the community
Our employees eagerly give back and work together with our community to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors. We support organizations dedicated to helping students (Communities in Schools, Rainier Scholars), families (Northwest Harvest, United Way) as well as organizations such as the American Heart Association, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charity, and more.
