Ken Russell, CPA

Ken Russell, CPAKen owns Access Accounting and Tax Services Inc, a CPA firm designed to help understaffed small business owners pay the least amount of taxes legally owed each year. His bookkeeping services play a key role in solid tax preparation.

Ken started out by earning his B.A. in Accounting from the University of Washington. He also became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) licensed in Washington State.

Early experiences included serving as an Auditor for Arthur Andersen. And then he held the position of subsidiary controller with Seafirst Bank and operational auditor with Wells Fargo Bank

Later on he became involved as owner/controller in several startup small businesses and became acutely aware of the challenges small business owners face. That experience naturally led to owning Access Accounting and Tax Services where Ken applies his training and experience to help other small business owners succeed.

Ken and his bookkeeping staff handle the QuickBooks bookkeeping and taxes for dozens of small businesses in a wide range of industries including plumbing, martial arts, landscaping, construction, high tech consultants and many more. His experience and mastery of accounting principles apply equally well to nearly all industries.

Clients appreciate that Ken is available by phone and email to answer their questions...especially since his answers are in language they understand.

Ken enjoys hearing clients say things like “your services took a weight off my shoulders” and “I no longer worry about being in compliance” and especially “I’m referring my friend over to you so you can help him too”.
