Nikki Rohloff, Rohloff Associates, LLC (Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Radio, Episode 36)
While most other CPAs are working eighty-hour weeks ahead of the April tax filing deadline, the team at Rohloff Associates is committed to fifty-hour weeks as well as eliminating hourly billing. It’s just two ways her firm defies the expectations of how a CPA firm can work, says managing partner Nikki Rohloff. Nikki joined host John Ray to discuss her CPA firm’s unique business model, how and why they integrate talent selection and team effectiveness into their service offering, and much more. Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Radio is produced virtually by the Minneapolis St. Paul studio of Business RadioX®.

Rohloff understands that many CPA firms tout similar ideologies.
That would make complete sense considering numbers are numbers. However, they aspire to do things differently at Rohloff Associates. To them you aren’t just a number.
Their desire was and still remains to defy the expectations of how a CPA firm can work. Their story over nearly the past two decades is for their clients to know Rohloff Associates as their Relational CPA firm. In the effort to do so, they have removed the billable hour model which has opened the door to conversation with clients and their families on a level like no other.
