Donna Lungren"A very Uncommon CPA firm. Brent Ross and his team are extremely helpful and not only care about counting beans, they care about teaching their clients how to plant and grow the beans! They have unique ways of finding the not so obvious ways you might be losing revenue or productivity. They combine their accounting skills as well as their leadership training and consulting to help the small business owner regroup and grow. - Great Job, Ross Hughes & Associates!"

Though we have now sold our business, we continue to use his tax preparation service. While we owned the business, Brent and his staff guided us with very useful training, business valuation as well as tax preparation. I highly recommend Brent and his team."

They have always kept my best interest in hand when advising me. I have worked most closely with Muhammad Mansoori over the years. His dedication to my well being has been remarkable.

Bob Franklin"It is without a single reservation that I recommend Brent Ross. I have worked with Brent and the Harrison Assessments organization for a while now ... recently I had the pleasure of continuing my Harrison Assessments training over a two day period with Brent. I can say without hesitation, Brent’s training and teaching style is a breath of fresh air. He doesn’t lecture but rather presents the information in a clear and comprehensive way; peppered with anecdotal discussion that helps you fully retain the information. It is clear why Brent is so highly regarded in the world of "Leadership Training”. Give Brent a call - your organization will come away better trained, organized and prepared to meet the challenges of today’s business environment."

"John Murk and Brent Ross have been providing me with tax and accounting assistance for over a decade. Initially my needs were primarily for tax return preparation. I then started a business which required broader accounting and corporate policy consultation. John and Brent were extremely helpful throughout the start-up and growth phases of the business. They provided timely, clear and useful advice regarding appropriate accounting and tax issues. They took the initiative to ensure all tax returns were filed timely and were responsive to any questions or requests. John and Brent were also directly involved in the recent sale of the business. The sale process involved numerous, complex financial and tax related issues which they handled competently, professionally and timely. Their assistance certainly aided in the successful closing of the transaction. I would wholeheartedly recommend Brent and his team to any individual or business requiring financial, tax and accounting services."

I would definitely recommend his services to others. "
