Firm Profile

Ian D. Gardenswartz & Associates, P.C. was founded in 1986. The company and its predecessors have practiced accounting in Colorado for over 40 years. We specialize in tax, accounting, and consulting services to a variety of clients including not-for-profit, real estate, manufacturing, professional service, and agricultural clients. Tax preparation, money management, estate planning, and financial planning services are also provided to business and individual clients.

We have grown to a firm of nine professionals, including three shareholders, and nine support personnel. Our accounting services include audit, review, compilation and financial statement preparation. In addition, much emphasis is placed on tax and small business consulting including unique issues for closely held businesses, structuring of real estate investment partnerships, tax analysis of proposed investments and asset sales and estate, financial and charitable giving tax planning.

Ian D. Gardenswartz & Associates, P.C. is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Colorado Society of Certified Public Accountants (CSCPA). We are enrolled in the AICPA Peer Review Program and successfully passed an independent review of our audit and accounting practice.  Shareholders and staff participate in conferences sponsored by these and other organizations, and take other continuing education courses to remain aware of developments in the tax, audit and accounting areas.

In 2000, we launched a new business by starting IDG Advisors, LLC, a registered investment advisory firm. The LLC provides various financial services including management of client’s investment portfolios, analysis and monitoring of portfolios, financial planning, asset allocation, and insurance services.

The success of our firm has resulted from the approach taken by all of our personnel to provide high quality service to our clients, with special emphasis on close, personal and prompt service. We believe the size of our firm allows us to give our clients the best possible service.
