Client Testimonials

Companies, individuals, and organizations all come to Clark Nuber for our unique blend of service, knowledge, and creative thinking.

In the words of our clients:

Clark Nuber is more than a firm we work with or a vendor. I believe Clark Nuber is truly a partner that looks after the overall health of Point B, not just its financials. I’m constantly amazed by the ways we are top of mind for our partners at Clark Nuber and how they create new connections and extend our relationships in the community.

The Hutch chooses Clark Nuber for their deep expertise and commitment to not-for-profits. They have been our go-to firm for advisory services related to complex accounting, tax and federal compliance issues. They helped us streamline our financial statements and schedule of expenditures of federal awards, saving us a significant amount of prep time each year and making them more readable and useful to our donors and stakeholders. In terms of tax compliance, it gives me peace of mind knowing that Clark Nuber is known nationally for its not-for-profit practice.

After a competitive RFP process, Northwest Harvest selected Clark Nuber to lead a partnership tasked with a comprehensive technology system review and development of recommendations for our entire organization. The process and outcome of this initiative exceeded our expectations. During this intensive engagement, the Clark Nuber professionals collaboratively developed a plan, assisted in the communications of the plan, and executed the plan towards a very successful outcome. The initiative came in on time and on budget. The solution recommendations were practical and affordable. Importantly, the solutions were respectfully developed with our employees as the lead partner, the solutions were owned by our employees and, in the end, fully endorsed by senior leadership and the Board of Directors.

Enhabit reached out to Diane Shey of Clark Nuber at the recommendation of the local Abila representative when we were exploring new options for an accounting system. Of particular interest to us was Abila’s ability to span grant periods rather than fiscal years to prepare grant reports. Onboarding to Abila MIP was a breeze. With Diane’s assistance, we created a chart of accounts that would carry us into the future and has served us well with reporting and analysis of profitability by operating unit, clients, and projects. We have used Abila MIP since 2012 and are very satisfied with the software as well as the continuing support and training opportunities provided by Diane.

Having worked in the Seattle market for over 15 years, Duff & Phelps became aware of Clark Nuber through their excellent reputation in the field. After working with the firm, we realized we shared a similar approach to serving our clients. We could not be happier with our partnership in the international tax and transfer pricing arena. Clark Nuber consistently makes their expertise apparent through their relationships with their clients. For example, while managing a complex IP migration transfer-pricing project, Clark Nuber drew on their deep understanding of their client, and their own technical knowledge, to assemble a cross-functional tax team. The tax team was able to see the project through from conception to completion. I think it is also important to note that we truly enjoy working with Clark Nuber professionals on a personal level. Clark Nuber is full of interesting people who understand, and appreciate, the need to enjoy serving clients in order to serve them well.

What we like about using Intacct is that it seems like a system that was made by accountants for accountants. It handles intercompany transactions seamlessly and integrates with other accounting software such as WF payment manager and Concur. On top of all that, it is user friendly and responsive and will save us a lot of time. Everything about Clark Nuber’s implementation – project milestones, training, and transition support – was clearly defined, thorough and informative.

As we worked through our first SOC 1 audit, Clark Nuber exceeded our expectations regarding both availability and responsiveness, and provided reliable insight and quality guidance at every step of the way.  We interviewed several firms before selecting Clark Nuber.  Their team understood our industry, could relate to Benefit Solutions, Inc. being a small company, and we were able to speak with the actual people that we would be working with.  If I had one word to describe the Clark Nuber team, it would be magnificent. Everyone we dealt with was very professional, an expert in their field, and were able to easily communicate expectations.

Chief Financial Officer,

Clark Nuber brings a level of expertise and service that is hard to match. We have some complicated issues and we are a fast moving organization. Besides being technically of the highest quality, in terms of understanding the changing laws and IRS regulations, they bring an element of creativity, intellectual rigor and responsiveness that I am very satisfied with.

We selected Clark Nuber because they work with a lot of private, closely-held businesses like ours and have other well-respected clients in the HVAC industry. Clark Nuber has more expertise and diversification than the smaller firms, and we get more attention from them than we would from the bigger firms. They’re responsive and professional and conduct themselves as our partners.

If I had to use one word to describe Clark Nuber, it would be ‘awesome.’ During our search process for an accounting firm, it was important to me that whoever we hired had a clear and deep understanding of the hospitality industry. Clark Nuber fit that requirement. When the Clark Nuber team began working with the Sleeping Lady Resort to do an internal audit, they conducted themselves in such a professional manner. Our team was extremely comfortable with the process and the way it was administered. It was the first experience I’d had with an internal audit that didn’t feel intimidating. Their recommendations were clear and made good business sense. I feel this was a direct result of the high level of integrity of the Clark Nuber team. I would highly recommend them without reservation.

Rowley Properties' experience with Clark Nuber has been extremely positive. They have handled both our taxes and our reviewed statements over the years, as well as provided assistance with a few estate planning and business research projects. The quality of the work they produce is very high and they have consistently met deadlines. They have a great team working for them -- everyone we work with seems to take a personal interest in our business, is knowledgeable, pleasant to talk with and always willing to help and answer questions. I consider them a valued part of our team and a direct contributor to our achievements.

Since beginning to work with Clark Nuber in 2005, CN has exceeded our expectations year after year, in every way. As the audit process mandated by FASB and circumstances in corporate America have required deeper and more expansive audits, CN has worked with us to simplify and streamline our process. They have demonstrated a willingness to help us drive cost down while improving the accuracy and timeliness of our reporting. We highly recommend them to others seeking a professional and personal accounting firm.

The CN partner on the engagement demonstrated a depth of understanding of key relationships that resulted in clarifying our existing model and how it works.

They consistently meet our expectations and raise the bar for themselves. When our foundation pursued its first program related investment, we were impressed by the extra attention they paid to due diligence. The high level of service and longevity of their staff differentiates them from other providers. In a word, Clark Nuber is invaluable.
