Kopsa Otte CPA’s + Advisors is a trusted advisor to many salons, in all aspects of their business, from their accounting to commission structures, benchmarks, budgeting, selling and buying a business, and tax planning. We do not charge by the hour; our clients have a service we call “unlimited access.” This means they can call us with questions and there are no additional fees.

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT: We are not the “accountant next door”; we are advisors, planners and specialists. Working in this niche for more than 30 years has given our firm the unique insight to this industry, in turn helping our clients become more profitable. We work with cosmetology schools, salons and spas, and distributorships.
HOW WE WORK: We start with our “Business Analysis”—this is a way for us to show a potential client what we can do for them. We spend time straightening out their accounting, reviewing the tax returns and comparing their numbers to industry averages and benchmarks.

WORDS OF WISDOM: Business owners know their numbers and make necessary changes using those numbers. Without numbers you are flying blind.
