Cloud-Based Accounting Solutions


Internet-based accounting has been available for more than a decade, but only recently has the term “cloud accounting” come into vogue. Cloud computing uses an online connection to access data that is stored on a secure server, rather than in the hard memory of your desktop or portable device. The term gained traction when big smartphone companies and cellular networks began to advertise cloud computing as a way to avoid over-loading mobile phone devices with music, images, videos, and other data-intensive files. Today, cloud computing is ubiquitous; and, it is going to become even more prominent in the accounting industry as technology continues to improve and as more people adapt to the mobile culture.​

Peak Platforms is dedicated to delivering best-in-class cloud-based technologies to the clients and industries we serve. We strive to be on the cutting edge of these technologies that will reshape the way we conduct business for years to come.

Tax Strategy & Planning


Building an effective tax strategy is an integral part of superior decision making. Taxes constitute a significant portion of business expenses, and effectively managing them can lead to significant benefits over time. It is important to distinguish between tax planning and compliance. Preparation of tax returns is called compliance and most CPAs do a fairly good job at doing that. However, tax planning involves formulating a strategy that minimizes the effective tax rate over long periods of time. Tax planning involves discussing the entire business plan with a client and making the appropriate time-sensitive choices to ensure maximum savings. Keeping up with the ever-changing tax code and its practical implications to our clients is a task we take seriously.

Team Approach


We are one of the few firms in Colorado who take a team approach in helping our clients succeed. The team approach involves us inserting ourselves in clients businesses, from both operational and financial perspectives. In our view, it is important for CPAs to know their clients’ numbers. But it does not stop there. The role of the CPA goes well beyond number crunching. We try to understand the decision making process that produces the numbers. We strongly believe that good management decisions that are efficiently and effectively executed determine the future of any business. Financial success is merely a by-product of superior decision-making concerning each dollar that a business earns or spends.
