    Barrett and Company: More than just numbers and taxes

    Marisa Ribar, Administration & Marketing Assistant 

    Barrett and Company is a reputable accounting firm in Southwest Washington that has been providing expert accounting without the hassle since 1986. Lance Barrett, Managing Member of Barrett and Company, has been active in the SWCA since the early 90’s, taking on the role as president for a period of time. His work helped start the Department of Labor and Industries Retro Program for SWCA, and, as the membership has grown, Lance and our team at Barrett and Company have remained active members of the organization through the SWCA Finance Committee Board and Foundation Scholarship Committee and supports many continuing community activities that the organization offers.

    Our unique approach to the challenges that small to medium sized business owner’s face within the construction industry allows us to place our clients’ needs as a top priority within our firm. Our holistic, unique strategies for each client are built with the knowledge of their financial, business and personal goals. 

    While most accounting firms focus on the history of a business, we also look toward the future. Listening to our clients’ needs is an integral part of our business strategy and it is important to us that we understand our clients’ goals and how they operate. We see the relationships with our clients as partnerships and we will be there every step of the way to cultivate dreams into a reality. 

    We listen to any concerns, ideas and questions that you may have along the way as we construct a strong foundation for your business to grow. While we worry about the numbers, you can focus on nurturing your business to its fullest potential and enjoy the peace of mind that our services bring. These services include tax preparation and planning, financial projections, audits, reviews, and advisory services.

    At Barrett and Company, we know the strategies that work and the pitfalls to avoid. Our goal is to never let surprises through the door and to keep our clients informed. With over 30 years of service, we have earned a reputation as hassle free accounting experts.
