About VET CPA Association
The VET CPA Association is a network of independently owned CPA Firms located in North America working collectively to elevate the quality of veterinary practice accounting, tax reduction planning, and profit coaching.
Our collective focus is to minimize your taxes legally by taking advantage of the tax laws.
Each member of the Veterinary CPA Association is committed to the following:
- Each VET CPA Association member is a licensed CPA.
- Each VET CPA Association member is a Certified Tax Coach and has completed advanced training in proactive tax planning conducted by the American Institute of Certified Tax Coaches (AICTC), an independent not-for-profit corporation. In addition to the advanced training, all Certified Tax Coaches are also required to complete additional continuing education training (above state CPA guidelines) each year.
- Minimizing your taxes legally.
- No hourly billing surprises. Our fees are fixed, reasonable and understood upfront.
- We provide veterinary practice benchmarking.
- Our members truly focus on all types of veterinary practices.
- Each member is still accepting veterinary clients and offers a free initial consultation.
And just like most veterinary practices, our VET CPA Association members are operated by sole practitioners and small partnerships. That is why our fee structures are reasonable and we avoid hourly billing.
Each year, the Veterinary CPA Association participates in national trade shows and invites outside speakers for educational purposes. Over the years, the VET CPA Association has attended the VMX trade show in Orlando FL in January. Later this year, we will attend the Connexity show by AAHA in Denver.
To further our knowledge of the veterinary industry, some members of the VET CPA Association are also active members of VET Partners trade association.
