About Us

Our Office

At Padgett Business Services, we are a locally owned accounting office that seeks to build personal relationships with our clients, while providing accurate advise and reporting. Our desire is to help each business owner reach their highest potential by freeing them to do what they love. We take a very relational approach in providing business consulting, monthly accounting services, payroll, financial reporting, and income tax preparation.

With our beginnings in farm income tax and consulting, our business has grown and expanded to encompass a wide range of small businesses. Starting out in Eaton, Colorado as Northern Colorado Agri-business, our business teamed up with Padgett Business Services to gain additional support and expertise in order to best provide our clients the service they need.

Our service in Northern Colorado extends from Greeley to Fort Collins and throughout the Front Range.

Why Padgett? With a network of support, our company teamed-up with Padgett to better serve small business and receive ongoing support for the ever changing tax laws and regulations.

Padgett Business Services is a nation-wide accounting franchise that is locally owned and operated, specializing in accounting help for small businesses. In 1965, Walter Padgett, a small business owner in Athens, Georgia, witnessed fellow business owners struggling to manage their tax and financial issues. He in turn created Padgett Business Services to assist in the building of successful businesses. And still today, businesses across the U.S. rely on Padgett to help them build their business through locally owned franchises.
