Our mission is to offer quality tax, audit, accounting and advisory services to our clients in a professional manner.

The firm's philosophy can be summarized in the following statement: "Professionalism in the accounting profession means integrity, objectivity, independence, adherence to professional standards, and a demonstrated will to maintain and improve the quality of professional services."

With the professional staff all being members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Texas Society of Certified Public Acountants (TSCPA), and numerous other professional organizations, we maintain the commitment to meet the professional standards and on-going educational requirements of each of those organizations.

The firm's area of service is primarily the immediate East Texas area, although our client base reaches wide throughout the state of Texas. Several of our shareholders hold licenses to practice in Louisiana as well as Texas. Mr. Reed is licensed to practice in the state of New Mexico as well.

Our continual investment of time and resources in professional continuing education, state-of-the-art computer technology and extensive business relationships is indicative of our commitment to excellence.

The adequacy of the firm's quality control system for our accounting and auditing practice and our compliance with that system are independently evaluated every three years through a peer review conducted under the auspices of the Private Companies Practice Section of the AICPA Division for CPA Firms. The peer review report is available to our clients and other interested parties upon request.

At Perry D. Reed & Company, P.C., we strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism possible and do not compromise on principles, standards, or quality. In the field of auditing, particularly, professionalism requires an undersanding of, and dedication to, the public interest. We value our reputation for quality services and believe that reputation is the basis on which we attract new clients and build our practice for the future.
