About Us

We do things a little differently than your typical full-service, top-notch CPA firm. We believe the most important accounting principle is getting to know our clients as people, and not just numbers. We start off our relationships with a handshake and a smile. We take the time to listen to your needs, your concerns, and your goals before we pick up our calculators and give our advice.

This has been our philosophy since we started more than 40 years ago, back in 1969. With this culture intact, and a great team of people to support us, we are proud to have Halt, Buzas & Powell named by the Washingtonian Magazine as one of the area’s top 25 CPA firms for quality and service, and by the Washington Business Journal as one of the top 50 firms by size. In addition, because we care about our staff, we have been named by Accounting Today as one of the Best Accounting Firms to Work For. However, our proudest achievements are seeing the positive change we’ve delivered to customers big and small, in various industries, including restaurants and hospitality, nonprofit organizations, government contractors, and professional services.

Here’s more about what differentiates us from your everyday CPA firm:

Our Customer Commitment

Above all else, we are committed to our customers’ success.

Our Team

It’s because of the personable, talented people we have on our team that we’ve received the accolades of being a leading CPA firm.


Now that we’ve been able to brag about ourselves, what’s more important is listening to what our customers have to say about how we’ve helped them grow.
