We believe that a closely held business requires closely held relationships in order to thrive.

Our mission is building lasting relationships with our clients so they can build lasting success.
Our passion is providing personalized services for your growing business.

Our priority is you.

Our firm was founded with one utterly unique purpose in mind: to give our clients undivided attention, year round, and to know the ins and outs of their businesses deeply.

Here’s why.

Proactive tax planning is key for exceptional and successful business management.

When we founded Nelson & Swaite, CPAs, LLC in 2011, we were desperately wanting to give our clients a level of support that our previous positions wouldn’t allow. Sure, being busy is a great problem to have, but not when you want to create real value for your clients! We created this firm to put our clients first and to never compromise our service or commitment to them.

We understood that in order to offer the most individualized and specific tax services, we would need three things.

 To continually educate ourselves on changing laws and new technology. If we learn of a new technology that will be useful to our clients, we will become proficient in order to help their efficiency and success. If we think there may be unexplored methods to saving you money, we will research until we get the answer we’re looking for. At Nelson & Swaite, we are truly relentless in our commitment to our clients. We strive to provide an unparalleled level of service. Also,we truly enjoy it.

 To keep our practice paperless and constantly advance at the pace of technology. Staying up to speed with new technology is paramount at our firm. Not only are we always open to new ideas and education, we love to share our own experience with you. We aim to help our clients transition to new technology with grace and expertise. If we can create more efficiency and ease in your business and life, then we will consider ourselves successful. But we won’t stop there.

 To know you and your business thoroughly. As business owners ourselves, we understand the particular challenges of running your own operation. While we love to share our knowledge of what works best for us, we also realize that every business is completely unique. So in order to best serve you, we intend to know you and your business very well. We love to visit our clients on location and see how things run firsthand. It’s exciting to us and, most importantly, offers invaluable information that we can use to help you be successful in your business.

You see, we’re not seeking new clients for the sake of new clients.

We’re seeking relationships with passionate business owners who care about how their financial and management decisions impact their enterprise.

When you work with us, you’re not just hiring an accountant – you’re taking on a team member who wants to know everything about your business and share their own knowledge to help you run in the most effective way possible.

You’re getting year-round support from a firm that knows how stressful and confusing running your business can be – and handles it with expertise and ease.

You’re getting one of the the most valuable relationships of your life.

Nelson & Swaite’s paperless processes have made his clients’ businesses and lives easier and that is always at the forefront of his mind. When he’s not strategizing with clients, running numbers, or researching new tax opportunities, you can find Gregg running, reading about running or talking about running. Did we mention that Gregg really likes to run?
