LPG Consulting provides a wide range of services to individuals and businesses in a variety of industries. At LPG Consulting, I strive to meet each client's specific needs in planning for the future and achieving their goals in an ever-changing financial and regulatory environment.

I am knowledgeable and up to date on the tax laws and can make sense of your receipts, bills and notices.
From start-ups to established enterprises, businesses rely on accurate and insightful financial information in order to maintain profitability and capitalize on new opportunities. LPG Consulting's accounting services steer you closer to these goals with accurate record-keeping and reporting as well as support on matters of internal control, financial issues such as initial accounting system setup, cost-containment, tax planning, investments, and employee benefit and profit-sharing plans.

Everyone should have a well-thought-out plan as to how to distribute the assets left in one's estate so as to avoid complications and to be sure that the individual’s wishes are followed. Having your taxes and estate thoroughly and carefully planned will ensure that your loved ones don't have any complications to deal with during a time of loss.
Compilations are usually requested for internal purposes and are based upon information provided by a company's management. They do not offer assurance but may involve some adjustment to accounting records.
