So you're an accountant. You spend your days following the arcane details of FASB statements or the IRS code. But you don't just follow them; you document your compliance with them. You keep endless workpaper files that require technological advances in electronic storage capacity to maintain, all in an effort to cover your backside when the "staff" comes calling.

Well, you're not alone; we do the same thing!! The Transition Science team members are not accountants; but through some misunderstanding by our college counselors, we ended up in the Big 4 and other national accounting firms doing business valuations in accordance with the same FASB and IRS rules! Go figure. We obviously aren't in an accounting firm anymore; but we do the same work, with the same attention to detail, with the same 16 MB of stored workpaper files, but for much less in fees. See the descriptions below for a snapshot of what we offer.
