Dale Grant is a CPA, QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor and Owner of Ashton B.C., PLLC, is an accounting firm that specializes in accounting, tax and advisory services. Dale’s knowledge and experience with small businesses is varied as it has been developed over the course of two separate career paths. After graduating from Florida A&M University he spent his time as a sales representative servicing small business owners. During that time he gained an appreciation of the hardworking nature of entrepreneurs. As a result of that experience he began to understand that most operators take on all of the company’s responsibilities themselves and in order to grow they must delegate out tasks. In 2010 after graduating from Keller Graduate School of Management with a Master’s Degree in Accounting and Financial Management Dale earned his CPA. Over the course of the next 7 years he gained experience in financial reporting, tax and audit. His experience ranges from auditing mid–sized companies throughout the state of Michigan in industries that include financial institutions, insurance companies, non-profits, and manufacturers to preparing tax returns for businesses and individuals as well as preparing financial statements and reports for public traded companies. During his time as a CPA with a large regional firm he recognized that small businesses are an underserved community. From that experience was born Ashton Business Consulting. The company began in 2015 by providing services to family and friends on nights and weekends. Now is the time for the next step by offering small business services full time. Ashton B.C., PLLC is a full service accounting firm designed specifically to meet the needs of small business owners throughout Southeastern Michigan. Proudly serving those hardworking entrepreneurs in this great region and proud to take part in this entrepreneurial renaissance.
