It always pays off to deal with someone you can trust! When learning that our taxes were not handled well, I chose to call Counting House Associates in Greenland, NH. After speaking to a representative in person I saw that there was a real interest in seeing what the issues were and finding a solution for us and our situation. When I heard back from Counting House Associates it was a call stating that there was important and key information missing and they were sending me an email for more claification. In the end it was their integrity and tenacity to make sure all my details were accounted for so that an accurate assessment was done. I want to thank Counting House Associates and all the staff that were involved. I will be a long time client moving forward.

Van and his team are professional at their jobs and excellent at customer service. Very much appreciate the expertise and help, we are a company that is just starting to take off and having them not only perform payroll but make sure we have all the details straightened out and understand them has been great! A good ally for any business.

Van and his team are amazing and this is an understatement. I am a small business owner who has owned my business for 10 years. I wish I met Counting House when I first started my company. They have always been responsive to my emails and questions. Not once have I felt ignored or not important. They are amazing with payroll and as I continue to grow and add employees they are right there helping my payroll needs along the way. They do so much more than payroll as well. They are an amazing company and are an asset to any business that decides to have them in their toolbox. They wont let you down. My word as a business owner is one thing. But to drive the point home for how great they are. My wife is a licensed CPA. She was a manager at a regional firm in Boston and turned down becoming a Partner so we could start a family back here in our home state of NH. She is very experienced and extremely "picky" when it comes to other accounting firms. She has a lot of trust and faith in Vans business as it allows her to do her own job and come home with the family and kids and not worry about my business or bookkeeping. This has been great as she has more time with the kids and isnt stressed about my company. Keep up the great work with your "5 Legged Stool"

Counting House has been a life saver. Worth every penny. We have been in business 15 years and every year we file an extension and file late which cost us a fair amount of money. We also always end up paying a huge amount of money taxes owed. We hired Van and the gang just over a year ago. They do it all for us. We filed on time this year and got a 6000. return. Can't say enough good things about them.
