Chartered Accountants for the 21st Century
Achen Henderson manages and oversees the integrated and seamless combination of technology, strategic alliances, and in-house expertise to provide our clients with high-performance accounting and tax. We offer a full suite of accounting and tax services you can choose from and, if you prefer, we package these services together to make life simpler for you. Business owners get up-to-date information about their companies, in easy-to-understand terms, so they can make more informed decisions.
We believe in working better and smarter so that we can truly achieve work/life balance. And we want that for our clients too. The old-fashioned approach of working yourself sick 24/7 to achieve success no longer applies in our technology-driven world, giving those of us who embrace it more free time and more peace of mind.
We begin by engaging in mindful collaboration with our clients so that we can understand their goals and objectives, then tailor our services to help them get where they want to go. We also form strategic alliances for our clients to ensure growth and opportunity.
With Achen Henderson as your partner in success, you have the tools, information, and guidance you need to thrive, grow revenues, manage costs, make more informed decisions, and focus on what matters the most—your customers. Just as importantly, we’ll keep your taxes as low as possible while ensuring you’ve filed on time and correctly.
Achen Henderson was formed in 2013, when partners Clayton Achen and George Henderson stepped off the hamster wheel that is the traditional accounting firm. In 2015, Carol Sadler joined as partner, bringing her U.S. cross-border and Canadian tax knowledge to our firm.
We are different because we measure our success based on the success of our clients, and not on how many hours per month we log and who drives the fanciest car. We’ve always embraced technology, but the technology hadn’t caught up to our dreams. Until now…
In 2018, we underwent a firm-wide redevelopment of our strategy, our processes, and systems, our why, and our cultural alignment. We decided to focus our entire existence on our customer’s success, and we realized that the only way to truly accomplish this was to empower entrepreneurs and business leaders to focus on creating value in their companies.
We know that data drives the best decisions made in business, and we recognized that most of our customer’s bookkeeping data was flawed, disorganized, behind, and of of little importance to the entrepreneur because they didn’t realize the power of their data, and thus they didn’t know how to use it.
We realized that in order to truly help entrepreneurs thrive, we would have to make sure they had access to accurate and timely data, which meant we would have to get into the bookkeeping game.
As a client-centric, technology forward firm, we already knew the advantages of working remotely and in the cloud, so adopting cloud-based technologies for our new bookkeeping practice was natural and our Untangled, Unburdened, and Unleashed service packages were born. Designed to help customers of all shapes and sizes, our bookkeeping packages are designed to make our expertise accessible, no matter how big or small your company is.
