Why CBJS?

At CJBS, our goal is to help our team thrive. That includes everything from providing career development opportunities and executive training courses to focusing on work-life balance and connecting our team to the broader community.


Our Services

CJBS offers the flexibility and support you need to explore and specialize in a variety of accounting services.

Accounting

Our team works closely with each of our clients to tailor long-term strategies that minimize costs and maximize tax-saving opportunities. We leverage the latest technology to plan and perform client engagements, grounded in a deep understanding of the unique aspects of the industries we serve.

Audit & Risk

We provide a complete range of audit and assurance services for companies of all sizes — including full audits, more narrowly focused reviews, and compilations. Using a customized consulting approach, our team helps clients implement reporting processes that identify both risks and opportunities for improvement.

Business Consulting

Working as an extension of our clients’ teams, we help them simplify processes and improve operations from the inside. Instead of looking to the past, we take a future-forward approach, so our clients can face whatever challenges arise and make the right decisions for their business.

Business Valuation

Whether our clients are negotiating the sale or purchase of a business or settling a legal dispute, we offer a comprehensive analysis to determine the value of their business. Our expertise in accounting, taxation, and business operations allows us to provide well-reasoned recommendations for each client’s unique needs.

Estate Planning

Our team guides clients through every step of the estate planning process, from investment planning through trust and will preparation. Taking an individualized approach, we gather data and discuss life and financial goals with our clients to help protect their future beneficiaries and ensure peace of mind.

Forensic Accounting

We help our clients implement controls to reduce the growing risk of workplace fraud, mitigate losses, and safeguard their businesses. Our team is skilled at detecting fraud, uncovering hidden assets, and providing due diligence services.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Beyond just putting a buyer and seller together, our team is attuned to the human side of M&A. We take into account the financial, cultural, operational, and legal issues our clients face to help them plan for success.

Business & Individual Taxes

Well beyond traditional “tax season,” we work with clients throughout the year to customize solutions that minimize their tax burden. Navigating the complex and changing tax landscape, we apply current laws, IRS interpretations, and sound judgment to take advantage of all tax-saving opportunities.

Small Business Advisory

As trusted outside advisors, our team works with clients in a wide range of industries to preserve and protect their most important asset. From strategic planning to nuts-and-bolts accounting services like payroll and tax preparation, we help businesses reach their full potential.
