Providing Sound Financial Direction

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Clients,

We understand that many of you may have concerns or specific questions surrounding the timely performance of our services. Please be assured that our staff is well prepared to continue to communicate and provide the high-quality services that you are accustomed to.

We are carefully monitoring the situation and following all guidance from our local, state and federal health agencies.

As a result of the density reduction mandate, half of our staff will be working from home which may result in delays of communication. If you need to contact your tax preparer, the best way to reach them will be through email. If you don't know your preparers email please call the office and we will gladly give it to you. We are discouraging working on-site at client locations and will not be meetings with clients at our offices.

Instead, we recommend that clients consider using electronic options, such as email and electronic data sharing. Our secure portal is available to all clients to securely transfer data such as tax data, signed tax forms and QuickBooks files to us. Tax returns can be sent directly to the portal once ready for your review. Portals can be requested through the “Contact Us” form below, or by calling the Gloversville Office (518) 725-7127.

You can still drop off information and pick up tax returns, we just ask that you call ahead so we can have them ready for you at the front entrance.

The April 15th tax deadline for the Federal Government and NYS have been extended until July 15th. If you need to pay quarterly estimates for your 2020 return, the first payment due has also been extended until July 15th, but the second payment due has not been extended and is currently still due on June 15th.

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility during this time of uncertainty. We will update this message as the situation evolves and if further decisions are made that affect operations.

About Us

~
Our Strength. Your Numbers.

 

WEST & Company CPAs PC has been counseling businesses and their executives in all aspects of financial management for years. We place great emphasis on communication and planning. Most of our clients use us as a sounding board to discuss a wide variety of financial and organizational issues. We are always only a telephone call away.

In each aspect of our practice, from basic accounting and auditing services to tax preparation for not-for-profit organizations, corporations and individuals, we ensure that our clients are in compliance with current regulatory requirements. We offer each client the opportunity to have year-round counseling in all areas of financial management.

We hold our accounting firm to the highest standards of quality control. This includes participating in the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants' Peer Review Program since its inception and each time having received an unqualified opinion. This is the highest level of opinion an accounting firm can aspire to reach. The firm and our certified public accountants are all members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Our professionals are continually participating in specialized training seminars to ensure that we are using the latest audit and accounting techniques on all engagements. In addition, our partners and staff have served in high level capacities on many boards of directors of a variety of organizations.

 
 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

The Fulton-Montgomery Community College Foundation just completed their second annual audit with West and Company CPA's. The Foundation has a three year contract with West and are very pleased with their professionalism, knowledge and insight. I have worked for not for profits for over 20 years and have had audits by numerous other companies and must say that working with West had been the best! They spend time before explaining the processes and expected time line. They are thorough and lay all the groundwork so there are no surprises. West works with the Board and staff to make suggestions and assist with implementation of recommendations. I highly recommend West to handle any audit or other fiscal needs for companies and individuals.

—  Lesley Lanzi, Executive Director of the Foundation of FMCC
