Our Company

Even a nationally recognized CPA firm can find only so many ways to make accounting services interesting and engaging. We believe that when those services are provided by interesting and engaging people, it makes a big difference. And that’s where Smith & Howard stands out.

Not your stereotypical CPAs, our professionals have had real-world CFO experience, get out of their comfort zones when not at work, spend countless hours learning about our clients’ businesses so that we can better help them succeed and spend zero time wearing green eyeshades.

A top CPA firm in Atlanta, Smith & Howard has been deeply entrenched in Atlanta’s business and civic community since our founding. We have a vested interest in Atlanta’s success: if the city succeeds, our clients succeed, which means we succeed. To make sure we serve the needs of businesses throughout their lifecycle, we continuously expand our service offerings and capabilities to fulfill the needs of our client family. This includes having national capabilities and global expertise and resources. Most recently, we added services to help pair businesses and qualified financial professionals – from bookkeepers to CFOs.

As we grow, we keep a watchful eye on our mission, our vision and our values, remembering that getting smarter, betterm every day takes precedence over getting bigger. This means we never lose our intense commitment to clients nor do we lose focus on providing personal service that is unrivaled among other firms. It also means that we treasure our employees and work hard to hire smart, committed professionals who share the firm’s values and goals.

“Passionate service drives our growth.”
