Your Financial Consultants in Richmond, VA


  • "I have worked with Fred and Catherine for over 10 years. Fred has been by my side before the bull dozers started moving dirt for my store. As a matter of fact, it was Fred who helped me pick my first bank in Richmond when I opened Tom Leonard’s in 2004. When it comes to important decisions or day to day book keeping of personal affairs - Fred and Catherine oversee it for me. Its my personal experience that Ames and Ames are a flexible, open minded and available team willing to jump right in and help you solve your problems." - Tom

  • "We operate a full service Real Estate Company.  We needed assistance in several areas of overall accounting; such as bank reconciliations, changing bank accounts from one bank to another, auditing accounts and oversight of several processes within our systems.  Catherine Ames and her firm were recommended by our CPA Firm. We hired them and they have performed professionally and effectively.  We intend to maintain our relationship with them on other projects." - Earl

  • "We are a small business and started using Ames Accounting about 2 years ago. We love the personal attention--no question is ever too insignificant (and believe me we've asked a BUNCH)!! Catherine has helped us set up accounts with vendors, spoken to the city on our behalf and done other things not normally associated with accounting. I recommend them wholeheartedly and am delighted to be on their client list." - Karen

  • "Fred and Catherine helped us cleaning up a major accounting mess left with the prior CPA firm and corrected and re-filed a few prior year’s tax returns - resulted in thousands of dollars of tax saving.  They have taken a hands on approach ensuring that deadlines are meet along with being prompt in any accounting/tax inquiries we have.  I don't see them as my accountant, they treat me as a friend, and they give me advice regarding my tax matters like you talk to your friend and seeking solutions. I'm very happy with the service and recommend them to everyone." - Adam
