Kopsa Otte CPAs + Advisors Owner Larry Kopsa  |  800-975-4829  |  [email protected]  |  Owners: Larry Kopsa, CPA; Candy Otte, CPA; Stacey Stark, CPA; and Katie Stoll, CPA

Kopsa Otte CPAs + Advisors realized several years ago that salons and spas were not getting the attention from accounting firms that they deserved so we went to work learning everything about the industry. By dealing with hundreds of salons, spas and State and RDA distributorships; we speak your language. We know your issues. We know your benchmarks. We know what works and what does not.

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT: Our firm has been specializing in this niche for more than 30 years. We have a team of 25 accounting professionals who have a unique insight into this industry, helping our clients become more profitable. We talk to you in a language you can understand.  We are much more than the “accountant next door.”

HOW WE WORK: We start with our business analysis. Our team spends time reviewing your accounting and your tax returns, and comparing your numbers to industry averages and benchmarks. Then, Larry Kopsa CPA will meet with you and go through our analysis. This is a great way to show you what our team can do.

CATCH US AT: We are only as far away as your phone or computer. Also, we speak at many of the top salon and spa conferences during the year. To find out when and where we will be speaking, check our web site under the Salon & Spa Division.

WORDS OF WISDOM: Although we are a CPA firm, our team thinks of ourselves as “foreign language interpreters.” One of the stellar rules of business is WHAT YOU CAN MEASURE YOU CAN MANAGE. As foreign language interpreters, we need to read and interpret the financials for you, so as an owner, you can make good decisions.
