Carter & Associates was formed out of a need in the
Tulsa business community for practical, solution-oriented professional
accounting and administrative services. During Mr. Carter's tenure as a Corporate Controller/Treasurer, he observed a void in
the marketplace for CPA firms that could truly relate to small and
mid-sized businesses and their owners. While most firms could handle
routine taxes, audits, and financial statements, he noticed that
few of the CPAs had significant experience outside the world of
the "CPA firm"; they lacked the essential experience working
"inside industry" necessary to fully gain the business
owner's perspective and to fully understand the day-to-day workings
of the small and mid-size companies.
Carter & Associates, we understand your business because we
have been there. Our staff has over 25 combined years of industry
experience as employees inside companies ranging from small and
medium-sized businesses to Fortune 500 corporations, as well as

of business owners and their companies.
Carter & Associates' client base began in Tulsa, it quickly
expanded statewide, and has now included consulting
services to companies located in California, Illinois, Arkansas,
Texas, New York, Louisiana, Kansas, Canada, and Australia.
