Hear what our clients are saying:

Young & Company was recommended by a friend. We were in the process of purchasing a restaurant, and dealing with the many nuances and subtleties as well as the big picture of the organization but after meeting with Dave, we felt very comfortable that our business needs would be handled accurately and professionally.

We are confident knowing that we always have someone to turn to when needed and that our needs are being met. The staff members at Young & Company are encouraging, straightforward and honest. We are very satisfied!

– Aaron Metras
Salena’s Mexican Restaurant

Upon meeting David Young, his knowledge and suggestions were exactly what we had been searching for in an accountant. We had worked with two accountants prior to working with Deb at Young & Company. None of the them took the time to understand our business like Deb did. They are strong in character and very knowledgeable, pay strict attention to detail and readily give advice that helps us to minimize our tax liability.

We have recommended Young and Company to many other business owners.

– Plato’s Closet of Rochester, NY

Young’s tagline is not just a catch phrase, it’s a way of life. Young has done my family’s taxes for two years (for my wife, my 3 daughters and me) with excellent, ethical and legal reductions in tax liability. Profits from Dave’s firm are invested heavily in eternal treasures, using significant funds from profits to support humanitarian and Christian missions in Haiti and worldwide. Even with Dave being gone several weeks of the year serving his country as a lieutenant colonel in the US Army Reserves, he always finds the time to return calls, emails and catch some time over coffee at my request.

His firm also has the capacity to provide a full range of other financial services; estate planning, book keeping, payroll services, and any other necessary service for the small to medium size successful business.

I recommend Dave highly without reservation.

In the five years that Dave has been my tax accountant, I have received exceptional advice and service. He knows the tax code inside and out, so I always come out ahead when he prepares my taxes. But even more importantly, his financial advice has been invaluable for helping me and my family plan for our future.

David has been an invaluable asset to Heart of God International Ministries (HGIM). As a member of the Board of Directors, his experience in accounting and business consulting make him a most valuable asset to the administrative ministry staff. As volunteer Executive Director of HGIM’s ministry in Haiti, David has successfully managed a myriad of challenges unique to a people group who have faced one tragedy after another, handling each situation with wisdom, integrity and compassion. David’s genuine concern for our Haitian leaders and children continue to motivate his work to provide for the physical, spiritual, educational and emotional care of sixty orphans so they will grow to become responsible Christians and productive citizens of Haiti. I have found David Young to be an exemplary leader in both business and Christian ministry, a rare combination, indeed.

David and Julie Young are experts in taxation and business consultation. Since its inception in 2008, they have provided business planning advice, bookkeeping software support, and handled the financial and government-mandated red tape for G. Emerson Consulting, Inc.

The thing I value most about working with Young and Company is the peace of mind. They are the first people I call when I get some confusing and sometimes ominous sounding letter from the state or federal bureaucracy, because they can explain the matter in plain language, tell me what I need to do, and address the issue in a timely fashion. They keep me from making mistakes, and address government mistakes before those become a problem. I can focus on running my business.

I have recommended them several times to businesspeople in need of accounting or business planning advice. Their fees are very reasonable, and, especially considering how much billable time I would lose trying to do what they do, I’m actually money ahead for hiring them.

– Glenn Emerson (via LinkedIn)
Owner at G. Emerson Consulting, Inc.
Rochester, NY

I strongly recommend David Young and his team at Young and Company CPAs. David is an honest and kind man who genuinely cares for people, including his clients. He and his team are knowledgeable and up-to-date on the latest tax laws. They are patient with clients, like me, who are not great record keepers. And, most importantly, they are unfailingly courteous and reliable.

– Graeme Roberts (via LinkedIn)
Marketing Strategist, Writer, Creative Director at GrowMotor

David and his staff have prepared my State and Federal income tax returns for 2009 and 2010. I intend to have him prepare my 2011 taxes as well. He is thorough and accurate. The returns are prepared quickly and accurately. David offers discounts to veterans, which makes his service a great value.

– Gary Wood (via LinkedIn)
Senior Business Analyst, LiDestri Foods, Inc
Rochester, NY

David has handled my business from its inception. We are now five years old and thriving because of the insights that David has shared with me. David is knowledgeable, timely, trustworthy and thorough! I give David the highest marks possible for a job that has been and continues to be well done.

– Michael Christman (via LinkedIn)

David young is an exceptional accountant. He has expert knowledge, proficiency, and professionalism every step of the way. But much more than that, David is a man of great generosity and integrity. He truly cares about the people he works for. I have never had a moment’s worry or hesitation in all the years he has prepared our personal income tax returns.

– Beth Adams Pitoniak (via LinkedIn)

David is much more than “just a CPA”. He delves deeply into the tax code, applies his knowledge to make MY life better, truly cares about others (even did house calls for my invalid mother), stands firmly behind his work, and much more – all for a price that I think is more than fair. Ask him about his humanitarian work and what he has done to further the interests of the USA – you’ll see that David is certainly not “just a CPA”. Thanks Dave, you make the world a better place!
