Creating Value

Zautcke CPA, P.L.L.C. adds value by enabling your business to: Increase revenues and reduce costs by making good decisions based upon reliable information and reasonable criteria, and by performing crucial business functions that must be done both right and on time when your existing staff cannot. 

Providing Extraordinary Personal Service That You Would Proactively Recommend

We work with the responsibility of a w-2 mindset, not a 1099 mentality.  We help you internalize and implement, not just provide insights.  That is why we are focused on what you need, not what we have.  We deliver the service level you need.  Pit stop, tune up or complete overhaul.

We use what you use. We are not married to a methodology or proprietary system.  We use the tools that work best given where you are now.  We use only off the shelf technology.  The services we provide do not need expensive technical platforms, programming, support, or licensing fees.

We work like you want to.  Communication should be fast, efficient and effective.  Conversations, emails, texts, actionable executive summaries are much easier to implement than 100 page reports or 200 page PowerPoints that have no point.   Whether online or in person, meetings must have a point, get things done, and not redo what has already been done.

​​Focus on Small Business Donation Deductions - 


Contrary to most media reports, the recent federal tax law changes should actually help most charitable organizations; and small business owners should now be able to enjoy a substantial tax benefit from their charitable donations.  Given the high degree of involvement most small businesses have with local non-profit organizations for marketing/philanthropic purposes, the recent changes are worth knowing about.  More information on these issues can be found through the downloadable document and link below.  If you would prefer to discuss a specific situation, or would like information from a past CLIENT CORNER post, please call us at 239-233-3442.
