Garrett & Associates, CPA was extremely helpful in organizing our accounting and getting a hold of our books. They provided great support when asking for accounting advice and immediate responses to important emails. Wonderful service!

Mille Bon Lait

Deeply appreciating our competent, no, brilliant, and ethical accountant of a decade now. Ursula works in California and has a very successful company in the Hemet area. She made a huge difference in our lives one year by asking what a "bonus" was on a pay check. It was royalties being recorded as payroll bonus'. Huge difference it made when we asked the payee to acknowledge they were responsible for royalties. I can't begin to tell you. She is also a marvelous person and friend. If you live in California and need an accountant, your taxes done, investment advice of any kind, she is IT!
