Doug Perkins, a lifelong resident of the city of New Haven, decided to enter the field of accounting from the time he graduated high school. He said, "When I graduated from high school there weren't many jobs in this area so I decided to go to college. I thought back on my accounting class in high school and remembered that I liked that class and numbers made sense to me, so I started taking classes in accounting and enjoyed it right from the start."

Doug is now a Certified Public Accountant who has served individuals and small businesses in Northeastern Indiana since 1985 with their tax and accounting needs. Beginning with a small company and moving up until he worked for a national company, Doug started his own CPA firm in 2005. Since that time, he has been in New Haven and serving the local community. Locating in New Haven was a no brainer considering Doug had lived just out of town or in town his whole life. He said, "I know the people. I know the community. I know the area. It was a good fit."

One of the things Doug is passionate about is working with people. He said, "I just want to serve the people in this community. Give them a place where they can have their tax and accounting needs met in a professional manner at a reasonable price. It is always interesting to hear their stories and everyone has a different story." Doug is all about the community. His first office was located off of Werling Road here in New Haven, but now his firm has recently relocated at a new location right on Broadway Street.

In his office, there are three Certified Public Accountants: Doug Perkins, Courtney Loshe, and Adam Schaffer. Together with three part-time individuals, Douglas W. Perkins, C.P.A., Inc. can handle all of your tax and accounting needs. When asked what their group did, Doug said, "We prepare individual and business tax returns and provide consulting services for small businesses and individuals. We work on approximately 800 individual tax returns and about 120 small businesses returns annually. We also provide accounting, payroll, consulting and QuickBooks installation and training services as needed. Whatever the client needs are, that is what we help them with. We try to be a virtual CFO for them if that's not in their skill set."

Doug's business has grown at a rate of 8 to 10% a year. Doug said, "I see us adding another full time individual somewhere down the line. If we add another person, we would probably add on a couple offices to the back of our current building."

Douglas W. Perkins, C.P.A., Inc. has been a member of the New Haven Chamber of Commerce for 4 years. He has benefitted from the Office Depot discount, using it quite often. Also, Doug received a Facade Grant of $1000.00 from the Chamber and the New Allen Alliance in order to update the front of his business. In Doug's words, however, the biggest benefit received from Chamber membership is getting to know the people in the community. He said, "The Chamber gives me an opportunity to get out there to meet people at the various Chamber sponsored events during the year. You get to know who the area business people are and what their stories are. It often leads to working with some of them to attain their goals."
