Our Focuses

Having a trusted advisor by your side, especially in times of turmoil or crisis, like we are experiencing now, can provide a sense of reassurance that you are not navigating these difficult decisions together.

Our teams are working virtually, or creating virtual, cloud-based environments for your business; our tax team can provide you update-to-date information on moving tax filing and payment deadlines, including capturing any disaster relief credits; our wealth management team can help you build a solid financial plan that gets you through life’s storms; and our business advisors can help you with grants, loans, and relief for sales tax, payroll tax and operational costs we all need help with right now.

SD Mayer Client Testimonials

Hear From Our Clients

The team at SD Mayer helped to take us from early startup mode, running accounting with Excel and lump-sum journal entries, to proper audit-ready accounting practices. Highly recommended for a bootstrapping startup that needs to up their game. Great team to work with! Friendly, responsive and accurate. Just what you need.

– Kevin Christy, CCO at Lightsource
