A Message to Our Clients
(Updated August 17, 2020)
OFFICES ARE OPEN, CLIENT ACCESS LIMITED
The majority of our employees have returned to the office on a rotating basis to limit the number of individuals in the office at one time. While not in the office, our our staff continues working remotely. Those working in the office are taking extra precautions and working in expanded work spaces, maintaining a 6 foot distance at all times, and we have increased sanitary measures in our common areas.
Your accountant is available to answer any questions you might have during normal business hours via email. This continues to be our preferred method of communication. Phone calls to the office are answered by the receptionist, and transferred to your accountant if they are working in the office, or routed to voicemail if they are working remotely that day. All voicemails can be retrieved through our email.
We are now performing field work at clients offices, and abiding by our client's office protocols. In addition, we now have the ability to scheduled in-person client meetings. While we prefer to continue with video conference calls, we are willing to meet the needs of our clients that prefer in-person interactions.
All visitors to our offices will be required to wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, a disposable one will be provided for you.
Our Center of Influence in downtown Boise will remain closed to the public through December to provide additional workspace for our staff following social distancing guidelines.
