Clients Speak

Forward Thinking Tax Planning and Accounting

“Suzanne Cloutier, PhD, CPA has been my accountant since 2003 when I acquired assets from USBX and started BizQuest. Suzanne has assisted me along the way during the growth of my company, subsequent sale in 2010 to Loopnet, and now as an investor. Suzanne has been proactive and has helped me with tax planning on a forward thinking basis. As owner and CEO, I was able to concentrate on the important aspects of conducting my business, especially product development, online marketing and growth, knowing that my accounting and tax was handled effectively and I was paying the least amount of tax legitimately. Suzanne is an out-of-the box thinker and a creative and tireless professional. I highly recommend her.” 

Proactive Mentoring, Clear Explanations, and Thorough Planning

“Suzanne Cloutier, PhD, CPA became our accountant in 2013. We were looking for a partner to mentor us on business matters and tax planning. We chose her because she is responsive and helpful. We were not getting guidance in the past and appreciate that she is proactive and gives us clear explanations and strategic tax planning.”

Money-Saving Strategies for Growth

“Suzanne Cloutier is an exemplary CPA. She stays in front of me throughout the year, not just during tax season, by keeping me informed as to how I can save money and maximize my write-offs. Suzanne takes the time to discuss my short term and long term objectives which has been invaluable to me. As a Realtor it is imperative that I have effective long term strategic planning and good management of day-to-day operations and Suzanne helps me tremendously in those arenas. I would recommend Suzanne to anyone looking for a new CPA because she has done such a tremendous job for me.”

Accuracy, Responsiveness, and Expert Support

“Suzanne Cloutier, PhD, CPA assisted me with filing delinquent US tax returns which was an arduous and stressful process made a bit easier by Suzanne. Suzanne has been pleasant, respectful, responsive, meticulous, an exceptionally clear communicator, and very diligent in her efforts on my behalf. She also found an ethical solution to a very sticky tax situation. The icing on the cake is that we seem to share some core values, and that has, as it always does, really facilitated the ease of working together.”
