The Howard Company, Inc. has a long-term relationship with Vrakas CPAs. We depend on them to meet our tax and advising needs. Vrakas walked us through the PPP loan and forgiveness processes. They kept us current in that quickly changing environment. A true partner!

William Hintz, Howard Company

I have been very pleased with the quality of services our firm has received from Vrakas. I continue to refer others to Vrakas for services. Their people are excellent. I also like the fact that they seem committed to remaining independent. They are big enough to have the resources we need but not so big that we feel lost as a small business. Their e-mail updates are very timely, informative, and helpful to our business. I highly recommend Vrakas.

Vrakas is one of our most valued business advisors. Their responsiveness is outstanding. As an ESOP, we need strong partners who understand the dynamics of employee ownership and the accounting complexities that come with it. Vrakas has helped educate our company on how to maximize the benefits of being an ESOP to help the company grow.

We have had Paul Rothering on our account for many years now. He is a true professional and VERY easy to work with. He gets our business and is always willing to help us out in any way possible.

Client Testimonials

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.

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.

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.

I have had the privilege of working with Vrakas S.C. as a client and as an accounting referral source for over 30 years. I continue to be impressed with the work quality and responsiveness in accounting, tax planning and valuation services supplied by them. Besides doing great work, they are great people.Attorney Stuart R. Schroeder

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. Steve Martin
