With international dealings, not all CPA firms are created equal. Frustrated with complicated and inaccurate advise by our previous CPA, we were referred to HLB Gross Collins. HLB has been there to get to know who we are and to help us grow along the way by making suggestions and referrals that work for our business. No question is too small or large, all receive respectful and timely replies. The personal, reliable and professional services that Iliana and HLB staff have provided has been beyond measure, in the more than 11 years since we made the change.

“Crunching Numbers” for me is only one of the many things I appreciate about HLB Gross Collins. Over the many years of working with Pauline, who I consider my accountant and friend, I have developed a relationship which reflects trust and loyalty. I know she has my best interest as a basis for all her advice. Caring may be the key word. She is always available to guide my decisions in a supportive and professional manner. I consider myself fortunate to be a client.
