What Our Clients Say

Our clients’ words speak volumes about our commitment to excellence.

Sheryl Gregory

Jonathan Smith, CPA provided an excellent presentation to our board of directors on the benefits of the Employment Retention Credit (ERC). The presentation captured the important facts of the ERC and he specifically incorporated our agency and how we qualify for the credit. He demonstrated professionalism and was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend BAT solutions regarding the ERC and its benefits for small businesses!!!

Norman Edmunds

Mr. Smith provided excellent service. His presentation was very informative in regards to understanding exactly what the ERC is and how it will benefit the company. Mr. Smith is a CPA as well as an ERC specialist. That gave me great confidence in selecting BAT Solutions. A number of the emails and calls I received were not from a CPA.

ReKeysha Belcher

I’ve never met Mr. Smith but instantly I felt comfortable with allowing him to prepare my tax returns. I have been doing my own returns for over 15 years but this year forced me to seek help. Mr. Smith was very professional with explaining everything and provided everything I needed in a timely manner.

Aquanius Freeman

The leadership of Mr. Jonathan Smith and his team have proven that the highest ideals of service and attention to detail can be rendered upon any client who steps forward to this company.
