Client Testimonials

George Cacoulidis
Chief Executive Officer, Grand Metro Builders of New York Corp.

I have been a client of Savastano, Kaufman and Company for more than 20 years. I choose to work with their team because of their attention to detail and the fact that I am not just another account to them. I have been with large accounting firms and have always been treated as just another number, whereas at Savastano, when I call the team knows who I am and they dig into my issues like they were their own issues. I honestly believe they value our relationship and care about my well-being when it comes to tax advice and planning and for me, that’s the most important factor. Whenever asked by my own clients about a CPA relationship, I always suggest they call the Savastano, Kaufman team and know that my recommendation will not come back to bite me in the future!

Alex Wagner
CEO, Alexander Wagner Company, Inc.

Over 30 years ago, Alexander Wagner Co., Inc. began its long and valued relationship with Savastano, Kaufman & Company, LLC (“SKC”). In 1988, our business was growing very quickly, and we became aware that we had to update our business to keep up with the demands of new product lines and streamlining our construction equipment rental business. It was an overwhelming and challenging time because our record keeping was limited to hand-written journals. To address this new growth in our company, one of our objectives was to implement a new UNIX computer system to automate our new parts business, control costs, generate computerized invoices, schedule rental equipment AND accounting. As a small company, we, of course, did not have an in-house accountant or computer consultant, and there was no general ledger system in place. SKC came to our office several times late at night to teach us how to produce a general ledger, properly code our accounts, and get us up and running with three companies that had just been set up in the new computer system. Their expert guidance was invaluable during this important transition time in our company’s history. SKC was very generous in their transference of knowledge to us about how to properly create and maintain a computerized accounting system so we could become self-sufficient and grow our knowledge of how to maintain a beneficial accounting system for the future.

After SKC’s great support helping us to implement a new computerized accounting system, they proceeded to learn our various companies and how they interact with each other. Now 30 years later, we continue to enjoy the same commitment from SKC that we appreciated in the beginning stages of our relationship. All the SKC employees have been professional and responsive to any concerns or questions that have arisen over the years. We have no qualms or hesitations in recommending SKC to anyone seeking excellent accounting services. SKC is a company that not only provides excellent accounting services but their employees take a true interest in your business, and commit to understanding the unique challenges in your industry so you don’t feel like you are on your own while your business is “weathering the storm” through the cyclical economic periods that always come. You can rely on SKC to be there with you providing professional service, advice and support.

Before starting to work with Savastano Kaufman & Company our greatest concern was getting our accounting work and tax preparation done in a timely fashion. We are very pleased with the quality of their work and we are provided with timely financials that allow us to better run our business.

Working with Savastano Kaufman & Company was an excellent choice for us. They provide corporate tax services and personal tax and financial planning for the principles of our company and members of their family. This is critical to managing a closely held corporation.

Savastano Kaufman & Company is large enough to be a full service firm for all our accounting and financial planning needs and small enough to pick up the phone and speak to a partner if required.
