What Our Customers Have to Say About Us…

Padgett Business Services has been a wonderful addition to our operations! Both in areas of payroll and taxes they have advised us well and saved us money. Their responses to our needs are timely and they proactively look for ways to assist us to make our business run better. The front line professional we work with, Scott, is so good I took the time to write the owner, Jerry, a while ago to sing his praises and say how much we appreciated his help. Importantly, while other firms have left us feeling unattended to in the past, Scott and Jerry slow down and take the time to assist you in any ways you need, and always have a positive attitude about answering your questions. I would highly recommend Padgett Business Services!

Denton Cleaning Testimonial We will be approaching our 10th year in business this year.  As a small business located in New York City the most vital decision is choosing an accountant.  Over the years I’ve learned that is not enough.  An accountant needs to understand the mechanics of your business, get to know who you are and be concerned with your vision and financial goals both professionally and personally. With Padgett I have hired a vital team member not just a firm that can do our tax returns.

Denise Bogan

CEO, Denton Cleaning LLC

I’ve been working with Scott Scarano and Jerry Monahan at Padgett Business Services since 2004, and couldn’t be happier! I arrived on their doorstep with a tax and accounting fiasco from a previous service provider. The Padgett team was painstakingly thorough, dealt with all the agencies on my behalf, and got everything straightened out – making my life a whole lot easier so I could focus on the business of running my business. I’ve stayed with them because my business is well taken care of, and I can’t imagine getting this level of excellent and personal service anywhere else. Even though I have a small business, I feel like I get the same respect and consideration they extend to larger clients. I recommend them enthusiastically!

Ultimate Comics Testimonial

I have been with Jerry & Scott at Padgett for over 12 years, from running a TCBY franchise to opening my first retail comic book store and founding the Annual North Carolina Comicon! Because Padgett handles the monthly accounting and all of our payroll, I have more time to focus on selling more comics. They pickup and drop-off all of my paperwork and take the time to sit down with me on a monthly basis to go over my financials. Over the past several years our retail and online business has seen outstanding growth! Padgett Business Services has helped me transform what was a small operation to the empire it is today!!
