Over the past decade, Jill DiSalvo has developed a niche in assisting small to medium sized business owners with their tax and accounting needs. She understands the specialized needs of business owners and loves to help educate them on how to structure their businesses properly, helping them run as efficiently as possible. She also understands that many startup entrepreneurs require a lot of "hand holding" in the beginning phases. She also realizes that their budget may be limited to obtain the advice they critically need to be successful. Understanding this and as a member of BNI, Jill whole-heartedly embraces in the "Givers Gain" philosophy and feels that she can help guide new business owners through the start up phase in the most efficient and affordable manner possible.
Jill realized that there is a void in the marketplace among other accounting firms to provide the level of service and expertise that the average business owner can understand. Whether a client needs an initial consultation, or full service bookkeeping and payroll services, or monthly/quarterly financial services, her team is committed to customizing a plan that is affordable and meets the needs of each client and that "fits" her clients.
Over the last ten years, Jill has built her "Dream Team" to work with the small to medium sized business owners, helping them achieve measurable financial results.
