What Sets KR-CPAs Apart From Other Firms
We don’t use a traditional firm structure that drives costs up, and we don’t have fancy offices, but we do have senior-level management solely dedicated to the highest level of service, knowledge and maintaining strong relationships. That could be why we have a very high client retention rate to boot.
A Letter From The Founder of KR-Cpas
Hello, I am Kellee Brauntz, CPA. I am so proud of the work we do here, at KR-CPAs. I started the company in order to offer a more exciting and personal business model to my clients, who are running businesses of every size and discipline, so that they can have the same level of service a Fortune 500 company gets – world-class knowledge and expertise tailored to their needs and budgets. We strive to build relationships with our clients that provide long term and short term internal audit needs as well as other key needs within the Accounting, Compliance and Regulatory fields.
We recognize the importance of bringing continuity and loyalty not only to our clients but equally to our consultants. We reward our talented and diverse teams with challenging and fulfilling work, attractive compensation models, and something I believe is most important – project based work schedules that allow for plenty of work/life balance.
I have every confidence that after one project engagement you’ll see our true value and how beneficial KR-CPAs can be to your company or corporation. Our goal is helping you achieve your primary goal – getting on with business. Give us a call, we’d love to talk to you.

The Company We Keep at KR-CPAs
IN A NUTSHELL, WE’RE A NOVEL KIND OF AUDITING + ACCOUNTING TEAM AND A NEW WAY OF DOING BUSINESS WELL.
One of the reasons we at KR-CPAs have such a track record of success and high retention rate is because we employ an innovative, dynamic, more customizable approach to better assist and service our clients and partners.

We’re skilled, motivated entrets.preneurs, as proved by the success of every one of our engagemen
What sets KR-CPAs apart is we don’t utilize the traditional accounting firm structure of associates, senior associates, managers and partners that drive costs of audits up and result in less experienced staff completing the work. Rather, we build teams of qualified, senior management level professionals who perform the work. We believe this approach provides the opportunity to work with the most experienced, targeted professionals and promotes essential collaboration in order to be successful. KR-CPAs also povides interim Controller, Director and CFO-Level replacement personnel. Whether the vacancy is due to maternity/paternity leave, sudden illness, vacations or unplanned events, we supply custom tailored, temporary and project staffing for public and private companies. With any engagement, these highly experienced teams are seasoned audit leaders who work more efficiently, thereby decreasing costs to the client – and they are more likely to identify issues and opportunities for operational improvement in the course of their various audits.
What Our Clients Say
The resources are identical to those in the Big 4- Excellent. The only things that have changed about me from when I worked in the Big 4 is that I now have an additional 3 years of experience and my bill rate is much lower. It’s a winning solution for any client.
While the engagements I complete are similar to when I was at a Big 4 firm, I have more flexibility in scheduling and feel more valued. When paired with lower rates for our clients, it is an unbeatable combination.
