Broadalbin-Perth CSD

At Broadalbin-Perth CSD, we have been working with WEST CPAs since the 2008-2009 school year for independent audit services. Annual audits are a stressful time for school business offices, but the professionalism and courtesy of the WEST staff of accountants go a long way toward reducing these stresses. The WEST accountants are accurate and thorough, and they take the time to make sure that each school business office staff member fully understands the process and what is expected of them. They consistently go well above and beyond what is required of them to ensure that school district officials and Boards of Education have a firm handle on the district’s fiscal condition.

Fulton-Montgomery Community College

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 has 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.
