Who We Are
CPA in Alexandria VA
Davidov & Associates CPA is a boutique CPA firm in Alexandria VA catering to small businesses and individuals who want to take charge of their bottom line. We love helping our clients stay compliant with all government tax regulations and lessen their overall tax burden by utilizing all that the current US tax code and tax court cases have to offer, within the legal and ethical limits.
Mike Davidov, CPA conceived an idea of an innovative accounting firm back in the end of 90’s when he was involved in CPA firm selection at his employer at the time. Following his employer’s unique requirements and his own approach, Mike interviewed seven firms of different sizes using a twenty-criteria decision matrix that he developed specifically for this purpose. While the winner was ultimately selected, Mike made several important observations that led him to the thought of starting his own accounting firm that would make client satisfaction a top priority. The blueprint for such a CPA in Alexandria VA was created in 2001, and in 2003 the firm was launched.
Since 2003, Davidov & Associates CPA, Alexandria VA accountants, tax preparers and consultants have provided expert tax and accounting services to individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations in Washington DC Metro area and beyond, including Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church, Annandale, McLean, Fairfax County, Washington DC, Prince George’s County MD, Montgomery County MD and other jurisdictions. Our goal now, as it was then, is to help our clients lead and enjoy a better and less stressful lifestyle by eliminating any and all of their tax and accounting concerns.
Our Mission and Philosophy
Our mission – and our goal – is simple: to help you, our client, achieve financial success through sound financial and business decisions. You can consider us your trusted partner … someone who has a vested interest in your success and prosperity. That is our mandate. In fact, we measure our own success, not in the dollars we earn, but in the extra income you enjoy as a direct result of our efforts.
Unlike many other CPA firms, we are innovative and utilize a “quality over quantity” approach to meet client needs. When you sign on with us, we treat you as a VIP … whether you’re a big business, a small business, or even an individual consumer. Your satisfaction counts and, hopefully, will lead to repeat assignments and a mutually-rewarding long term business relationship. That’s what we want and we’re willing to work hard – very hard – to get it.
Our rates are very reasonable, especially when compared with larger traditional CPA firms. We rarely raise our rates while our competition routinely raises their rates by 5-7% per year. Also, we offer a 15% discount for new clients and 20% discount for each referral you make. Referral discounts are added on top of any other discounts.
Our client base is a good mix of individual, business and non-profit clients. About 35% of our clients are small businesses, 48% individual clients, and 17% non-profits. We pride ourselves on ability to serve our clients’ needs efficiently, with an excellent price/value ratio and in a very friendly, down-to-earth manner. We almost never bill based on hourly fees so our work is never negatively impacted by bloated hours, as you often see with other professional services firms. You only pay an agreed-upon flat fee no matter how long the work will take. We are very accessible via telephone and e-mail, and our response times are rather short. When you get a live person on the phone, it will almost always be a principal, Mr. Davidov. There is never a charge for a short (under 15 minutes) phone consultation.
We have been in business since 2003 and invariably adhered to principles of personalized customer service, value proposition and going an extra mile.
- 100% Customer Satisfaction. We pledge to work tirelessly on your behalf.
- Client Education Matters. We will teach you how to make better financial decisions.
- Charitable Donations in Your Name. We will provide a portion of our profits to your favorite charity should you direct us to do so… guaranteed!
