COHEN SIMON ACCOUNTING

At Cohen Simon Accounting we are passionate about providing solutions to help you achieve your business and social goals.

Accounting Services – Accounting Oversight

When you don’t have the resources to hire a Financial Manager, we can provide accounting oversight through monthly or quarterly visits.

Our value proposition to you:

  • Provide professional development for your accounting staff.
