Who We Are:

An experienced team dedicated to growing your business.

Acena Consulting is a multi-dimensional tax and accounting services company servicing both public and privately-held companies. Our experienced team of tax professionals includes former "Big Four" national office partners, attorneys, CPAs, engineers and other knowledgeable tax professionals.

While our roots all stem from the major national accounting firms, our approach to working with our clients is more hands-on, conservative and technically-driven. Our goal is pretty simple, we want to help our clients reduce their taxes and operating expenses in order to increase cash flow and overall business growth.

Whether you are curious about federal research and development tax credits, or some export incentives such as the IC-DISC, we can help you break it all down. We work diligently to help you understand, document and monetize these opportunities and other tax incentives for your business.

Our Culture:

We still think a handshake goes a long way.

Some might call it "old school" to believe that a handshake and long-standing relationships matter, but at Acena Consulting, they are part of our core. Trust, ethics, and simply doing the right thing for our clients, team members, CPA firms and alliances are the core values that have been a critical part of our immense success as an organization.

Most rescues were focused on prevention but there were many that saved a life or kept a child from getting injured on the rocks.

As a tax consultant focused on tax incentives, our work provides working capital that can create additional jobs at our clients and helps drive their success."
