Ann Vincent | Get to know our Tax Director
Ann Vincent, CPA is the Director of Tax Services at mAccounting. Ann was previously a partner at a traditional tax firm and became intrigued by mAccounting’s non-traditional accounting firm service model. With tax season in full swing, we’d like you to get to know Ann.
Ann grew up in a large family in Southeastern Indiana and came to Indianapolis to attend Marian University, earning her Bachelor of Science in Accounting. After graduating, she stayed in Indianapolis and began her career in public accounting. Ann has extensive experience including business and personal income tax returns, pension, nonprofit and financial statements audits, payroll, property tax returns and strategic planning.
From Ann’s perspective, mAccounting handles taxes much differently than the traditional tax firm. She explains that the major difference is the way mAccounting encourages clients to proactively plan throughout the year, rather than reactively at the end of the year. The key to this approach is having quarterly meetings with clients. “During these meeting, business activity is reviewed and forecasts for the year are completed in order to identify the impact on their personal tax returns and upcoming liabilities for cash flow purposes. We also evaluate financial data and use that information to contemplate real-time scenarios like buying additional equipment, leasing/buying property or making hiring decisions.”
Several of Ann’s clients have made the switch to mAccounting and have incorporated mAccounting’s suite of monthly services. Clients have been impressed with the way technology improves internal controls and streamlines accounting processes. Her clients also appreciate the ease of working with one company for services ranging from bookkeeping to CFO advisory, and tax services.
Ann explained her personal motto as, “you don’t stop when you’re tired; you stop when you’re done”, and this has largely influenced her success with entrepreneurial companies. During her time at mAccounting, she has found inspiration and excitement from working closely with small business owners. Much of this is due to her similar spirit, drive and dedication to growing her own company and seeing that process through. To Ann, mAccounting has exceled at serving a niche client base comprised of small businesses and she is thrilled to contribute to the success of her clients.
