Vrakas, with their ESOP expertise, has worked closely with our OwnersEdge finance team over the past 10 years. The teams work together to maximize the benefits of ESOP ownership. The Vrakas team is an exceptional group of people to work with and the entire audit process is smooth and efficient due to that expertise. If you are looking for an accounting firm, we would highly recommend them..

Mike and the Vrakas team have worked hard to fully understand the uniqueness and dynamics of the business at the Pettit National Ice Center. This has been exceptionally helpful in the efficient preparation of our annual audit, plus they have been able to offer insightful counsel on how we can improve financial management and related systems, as the Center has expanded its offerings to the community and sustained its partnership with the United States Olympic Committee.

Seventeen years ago Linda and I were introduced to Vrakas as we went about searching for a business to buy. From the first meeting, we knew that this was the firm we wanted to put our trust in for our accounting and tax needs. Seventeen years later they continue to earn and deserve that trust with their professionalism and service.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Holmes and John Staehler for over 10 years and have been very satisfied with both the tax and audit services that they and the Vrakas team have provided. Vrakas has always been highly professional, knowledgeable, reliable and responsive. When I first acquired the company, Vrakas conducted a cost segregation study which resulted in certain assets being made eligible for accelerated depreciation, which boosted our cash flow in the first few years, when it was most needed. They have been a good strategic partner.
Strohwig Industries has been working closely with Vrakas CPAs and Advisors for almost 30 years. We work annually with the assurance department on our financial and employee benefit plan audits and with the tax department on our corporate and shareholder tax returns, as well as a few projects with the business valuation department over the years. Vrakas’ team is knowledgeable, personable, and professional. They are prompt in response when we have questions or if an issue pops up, and the service product and business advice we get from them is always top notch. Here at Strohwig, we view Vrakas not as a vendor, but as a business partner vital to the success of our company.

Attorney Stuart R. Schroeder LLC
I have done work with Vrakas for over 35 years. As I developed my law practice in Waukesha county many of my business clients were already using Vrakas. I referred any number of clients to them for accounting, tax, and valuation services and have never been disappointed. When I started my own law firm in Brookfield they became our accounting firm and my personal accounting firm which they are to this day. While many of the local quality accounting firms have been gobbled up by regional or national firms, Vrakas remains locally owned and operated with the expertise to compete with anybody. That’s a great combination.

Excellent experience working with Scott to prepare and file my taxes. I had business and personal returns – his responsiveness and attention to detail was excellent. He took the time to learn my business. I highly recommend Vrakas.
