Holsinger, P.C., one of the largest accounting firms in the Pittsburgh area, has started a new division, IQ Accounting™, specializing in financial services for small business. This is the second new business division Holsinger recently created, following the May 2015 launch of SteelGate Advisors™, an investment banking firm. IQ Accounting serves businesses in western Pennsylvania and beyond from its offices in Cranberry Township and Butler, as well as Holsinger’s Wexford headquarters. IQ Accounting provides bookkeeping, payroll, tax, controller, and CFO services and is certified as both an Intuit QuickBooks™ Certified ProAdvisor and XERO® Certified Advisor.
As part of the growth of IQ Accounting, on Oct.1, 2015, Holsinger acquired Ronald G. Snook and Company, an accounting practice based in Butler, Pennsylvania. The practice has been in business for over 35 years and now operates under the IQ Accounting division of Holsinger, P.C.
According to Holsinger, the CPA core offerings of tax and audit services often overshadow the full scope of available accounting services. Holsinger decided the best way to emphasize its accounting services is through a dedicated division charged with addressing the accounting needs of smaller firms. IQ Accounting’s menu of services ranges from fundamental bookkeeping to strategic planning, while leveraging the latest technology to improve accuracy and efficiency.
“If you are too busy running your company to keep up with its day-to-day financial needs, IQ Accounting is for you,” says Marcy Marshall, senior accountant at IQ Accounting. “We’ve put together a suite of accounting and financial services proven to help owners maximize profits and improve earnings. Our IQ Accounting collection of specialty services includes Cloud applications and virtual Controller and CFO services, among other market-driven offerings that we can provide as a QuickBooks™ Certified ProAdvisor and XERO® Certified Advisor.”
In an industry that has seen increased consolidation via the acquisition of local firms by national accounting firms, Holsinger has chosen to grow its business by taking an entrepreneurial approach, thus launching its SteelGate Advisors and IQ Accounting divisions. The company has further expanded its reach and capabilities by joining the MSI Global Alliance, a leading international association of independent legal and accounting firms.
“We think this approach delivers the best of both worlds,” says John Holt, president of Holsinger. “We are local, but with international reach and a boutique offering of services designed to best meet the needs of our clients. We will continue to grow our local roots by providing excellent, personalized client service, while refusing to be grafted into a larger organization via acquisition. We know best what our clients and employees desire, and that is the beat to which we march, not someone else’s agenda.”
