With the tax season now upon us, wouldn’t it be nice to find a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) firm that is 100-percent focused on meeting its clients’ financial goals and saving money to positively affect the bottom line?
“Clients come to us because they want a professional to help them manage the financial part of their business,” says Shams Khan, the president and owner of SK Financial, located in the Seven Oaks Professional Park off S.R. 56. Shams is both a licensed CPA and a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) to help serve not only your tax needs, but also all of your financial planning needs, both personal and business.
SK Financial CPA is a full-service accounting firm primarily focused on helping small- to mid-sized businesses with quality financial services to help relieve its business clients from dealing with day-to-day accounting, bookkeeping, tax planning and preparation, human resources (HR), and payroll activity so they can focus on their core business.
“We like our clients to think of us as their internal accounting department,” says Khan. SK Financial also provides financial planning services for new business start-ups to give them a better chance of being a success from the start.
Shams has more than 12 years of experience in accounting, tax preparation, consulting and personal financial planning services to individuals and businesses. His financial focus is in a number of areas, including real estate, healthcare and advisory services. SK Financial’s Wesley Chapel clients include physicians’ offices, home healthcare agencies, independent clinics and pharmacies, as well as real estate agents and brokers, mortgage firms and even individual real estate investors.
And, every member of SK’s staff, including Registered Financial Consultant Allan Paull — who has more than 19 years of experience in the securities and insurance industries — brings unique strengths and experience to serve the firm’s clients.
“Having held positions with Marketing One securities, former banking firms Fortune Bank and AmSouth (known as Regions Financial), Allan is a great asset for SK Financial’s clients,” says Shams. “In addition to his expertise in financial services, Allan was a real estate broker with WC&F Reality Advisers working with the resolution trust, which gives him a solid foundation in the business of real estate.”
Shams is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Florida Institute of CPAs (FICPA) and the Florida CPA Society. He also volunteers at numerous not-for-profit organizations in theTampa area that need accounting and business advice.
Shams and his wife Umayma live in Wesley Chapel. An architect by trade, Umayma currently stays at home to raise the couple’s two sons, Ryaan and Yamaan, ages four and five years, respectively.
According to SK Financial’s client Walter Urquia, you won’t be disappointed with the firm’s services.
“I have being doing my personal and business taxes with Shams for four years, and it is always a pleasure to deal with him and his staff. I’d give them 10 stars!” Be sure to check out Google Reviews to see many more reviews of the staff and services at SK Financial CPA.
Clients like Distinctive Lawn Care of Wesley Chapel help keep SK Financial busy with clients. Shams says 50 percent of SK’s business is gained through referrals from current clients.
“I have had Mr. Khan do my business and personal taxes for several years,” says P. Stephen Nash of Distinctive Lawn Care. “I have been extremely satisfied with his professionalism, as well as his very reasonable pricing. I’m pleased to give Shams and SK Financial a 5-star rating as they exemplify exactly what I am looking for in an accountant.”
The SK Financial Difference
Shams knows there are many CPA firms available to his clients, so he makes sure SK Financial services always include these three things — easy accessibility through a policy to return phone calls within 24 hours (which ensures client satisfaction by making every client a top priority); holding weekly evaluation meetings; and saving money through using the latest technology to increase your tax savings significantly — often enough to cover your annual fee for service and even more!
Wesley Chapel business owners and residents can trust that SK Financial has their back. Whether you’re looking for weekly accounts payables and receivables, monthly bookkeeping services, or a CPA on a year- round basis, SK Financial helps you get the job done. The firm also has a second office, open by appointment, in downtown Tampa (on Kennedy Blvd.), making it convenient for business owners in both Tampa and St. Petersburg.
Maximizing Your Refund
“SK Financial helps Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), Sub-S Corporations, sole proprietors, and individuals prepare and manage their taxes,” says Shams. “Business tax is one of the most challenging areas in tax law and SK Financial knows how to take advantage of every business tax incentive, avoid costly fines, and keep more money in your pockets.”
SK Financial CPA also offers a free consultation and anyone taking advantage of the free consultation will receive a special report on “How to Drastically Reduce Your Taxes By As Much As 65% This Year and Put Thousands Back in Your Pocket!” If you have delayed completing your 2012 taxes, it’s not too late to have the experts at SK Financial work with you to ensure you receive all of the tax breaks you should legally receive.
How SK Financial Saves $

1. Automate your accounting department to avoid computer and software costs. This implementation saves on direct/indirect payroll and overhead costs. SK Financial provides the skilled, experienced professionals you need to handle your daily accounting and bookkeeping plus helps you develop policies and procedures to streamline your process.
