“HBE has been a huge blessing to our small business. When we opened the doors to our child care center in 2012, my accountant and other members of the HBE professional staff were so patient and supportive in helping me to understand the ins and outs of managing my own accounting. In addition, they went above and beyond by helping save money on my monthly  payroll expenses! As I look back at how far our business has come, I feel that I would have been lost without HBE.”
Brandy Cruz, Owner, Brandy’s Bunch Early Learning Center

“HBE has done a great job of guiding Oxbow through significant tax savings. Since approximately 33% of our sales are to international customers, HBE strongly recommended that we create an “IC-Disc” corporation which would allow for international net sales to be taxed at a different rate than normal income. The resulting tax savings were significant, and I cannot thank HBE enough for their expertise with international income issues.
John Miller, Oxbow Animal Health

“My company has been in business for over twenty years and for most of that time we have utilized the accounting services at HBE. Scott Becker and his staff have provided us with exceptional support and care through the many years we have worked together. Scott and his staff have always went the extra mile to answer my questions and to direct me through the mine field of corporate and personal taxes. I not only have an accountant that I trust, but one that I can count on and call my friend.
Jeffrey K. Morrow, President/CEO, DBI Incorporated

“HBE has completed the Food Bank of Lincoln’s audit for over three years and done an excellent job each year. Not only are they very qualified and thorough but they’re also a great pleasure to work with. Their staff maintains a high level of professionalism at all times and always presents a willingness to answer questions throughout the year and have calmly helped us work through every matter brought to them. The Food Bank views HBE and their staff as great partners and we look forward to a continued relationship.”
Nancy Evans, Assistant Executive Director, Food Bank of Lincoln, Inc.

“HBE is a CPA firm that you can trust and will help you grow your business. I seek their expertise and know that they help us to be a better company.”
Roland Temme, Co-Owner, TMCO Inc.

“I have been working with Scott Becker and the HBE team for more than 16 years on both a professional and personal level. The consultative approach employed by the HBE team is very much appreciated by my family, my business and I as the many attributes of a given decision are carefully evaluated and discussed in order to allow me to make the best decision. Not only is the HBE team very strong from a technical perspective, but they also operate with a high level of professionalism which I feel is missing in some of the other professional service firms I have worked with over the years. As a fellow CPA, whenever I’m asked who I would recommend for professional accounting and tax services, the answer is always easy…HBE!”
Paul K. Johnson, CPA, MBA, Vivinaya Consulting Group

“For the past two years, the Lincoln Community Foundation has engaged HBE to perform the audit of the financial statements and the preparation of our 990. We originally selected HBE because of their expertise and experience in working with non-profits, specifically foundations, and we are extremely pleased with our decision. The transition to a new firm was very smooth as they brought to us a team of professionals who truly understand the unique nature of fund accounting. The partner is actively involved in all aspects of the engagement and their responsiveness to our needs is outstanding. We would highly recommend them to any entity seeking a quality accounting firm.”
Scott Lawson, Vice President Finance, Lincoln Community Foundation

“Latsch’s Inc. has been an HBE client for many years. We look at HBE as a business partner and engage them on many aspects of our day-to-day business and future business planning. We rely on their counsel and expertise in all accounting and tax-related matters. Their advice has been a very important aspect in many operational decisions that have been made in recent years. As a result of HBE’s advice on corporate structure and taxation, we were able to minimize our federal and state taxes. We will continue to rely on HBE for good business advice in the years to come.”
Mike Decker, President, Latsch’s Inc.

“HBE has been our accounting firm since the day we started business over 25 years ago. The thing that stands out the most about HBE is not just the year end tax returns and financial reports that we are required to provide, but all of the good information they have provided us along the way. We relied on them for advise and direction when we were starting our company, in dealing with our bonding company, and our yearly tax planning, when we computerized our accounting system, with all the changes in sales tax reporting, to our business succession planning. They also are very knowledgeable when it comes to the construction industry in particular, so we always feel like we are also getting information that is specific to our needs and not just a standard response. We have always felt that HBE has been one of the reasons that we have been successful in the past, as well as helping always look forward towards making us a better company in the future.”
Steve Dickey, Dickey Hinds Muir

“I have had HBE, and specifically Scott Becker as the partner, servicing our company in the areas of reviews, taxes, and general business consultation for many years. Scott and the firm’s staff have served us well by always providing prompt service, excellent advice, and on-time delivery of documents. When there has been the time or two where Scott hasn’t known the answer to a questions, he has the support of the firm and his network in which to provide us the necessary guidance we have needed–and it has always been accurate and timely. One of Scott’s additional qualities that I personally appreciate is that he really understands your business, and if he sees something that can be improved upon (even on topics such as vendor selection), he is knowledgeable enough of the community and his client base to provide quality, meaningful referrals. Thanks, Scott, for your continued service to our company.”
Scott Morgan, General Manager & CFO, KZValve by KZCO, Inc.

“We are very grateful for the wonderful service and help we get from the HBE staff that take care of our business and personal tax needs. We enjoy reading HBE’s newsletter every month. It has many informative articles and keeps us updated on the many changes that take place in regards to the business tax rules and requirements.”
Mike and Fay Fayad, Fayad’s Auto, Inc.

Our contact with the firm has been Krystal Siebrandt and she has done a tremendous job for NeighborWorks.  Our organization was going through an upgrade of our internal accounting system and the questions answered for Krystal and the questions Krystal answered have all been very helpful in creating the best accounting process possible for NeighborWorks Lincoln.  HBE has been very accommodating with us during each of the audits they have completed.  In addition to Krystal, I have found every accountant assigned to work with us to be helpful and very knowledgeable. I would certainly recommend this firm to anyone looking for accounting expertise.”
Michael A. Renken, Executive Director, NeighborWorks Lincoln
