Challenge

Chris Martin is the owner and proprietor of two successful businesses in Lawton, Oklahoma: CGE Cattle Company and Wichita Furniture. Having been a businessman for many years, Chris has worked with his fair share of accountants. “I’ve worked with other accounting operations in previous roles. One was incredibly expensive, not very friendly and didn’t provide much in the way of personalized service.” The others he’s worked with may have been friendly, but were average at best. On top of that they didn’t have much knowledge about automatic time clock, payroll services or other related financial necessities. “I was looking for someone I could rely on to provide expert advice on all my different accounting needs, but wasn’t sure where to turn,” says Chris. “I was discussing this dilemma with my attorney and he suggested I contact Core, as he’d been using them for years and was very pleased with them.”

  • Assist with farm financial operations
  • Provide tax assistance
  • Use one financial service to cover all aspects of accounting and financial needs

Solution

Chris decided to hire Core to assist with his farm operation. “They came in and helped with CGE’s monthly financials, provided tax assistance and really got things in order. I was very happy with them.” Chris was so impressed he decided to hire Core to work with his other venture, Wichita Furniture, moving all of his business accounting and financial needs over to Core. “I was working with several other firms at the time for taxes, payroll and time clock. With Core, I could have all of those needs met with one phone call to a very trustworthy group. It just made sense to switch everything over to them.” Shortly after making the switch, Core helped Chris fix a tax mistake made by his former accountant. “There were some charged off accounts from sales tax from previous years and our former accountants had made some errors. Core caught these errors and helped us recoup about $60,000. To say we were pleased is an understatement.”

Results

Today, Core provides both CGE Cattle Company and Wichita Furniture the full gamut of their accounting, bookkeeping and payroll requirements. “I’ve been pleased with Core from day one,” says Chris. “I know I can rely on them to provide the best quality service. They are always available to answer questions. If they don’t have an answer, I know they’ll research it and get back to me promptly with solid advice.” Not only does Core assist Chris with his business needs, they also assist with his personal taxes every year as well. “I couldn’t be happier working with them. I’m able to get everything done under one roof. The efficiency of that can’t be beat.”
