The Big Picture

It’s something that all of us at Robin Wentzel look at every day. It’s the motivation behind every action we take on behalf of a client. And it’s one of the reasons our clients look to us in the first place. Our clients don’t just come to us for services. They come to us because they want someone to look at the big picture: their company, their goals, their reality. They want straight answers. What are we doing right? What’s not working? How can we get to the next level?  And through our big picture approach to accounting, taxation and consulting services, they’ll get the answers and a plan on how to get there!

Small business accounting isn’t rocket science. But it isn’t easy, either. Traditional accounting software can be both tedious and time consuming.

We’re here to tell you, there’s a smart way you can efficiently manage your finances, anytime, anywhere and at a cost that won’t break the bank.

What’s in the cloud?

Cloud computing traces its roots way back to the 60s. It started from the overarching idea of delivering computing resources that will make up an “intergalactic computer network”. Today, cloud computing allows users to access applications remotely via the Internet or a network.

Cloud accounting frees business owners from having to install and maintain stand alone accounting software on desktop computers. It allows business owners or accounting staff to access data in the same software version, anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Robin Wentzel

Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, Robin arrived in Hawaii in 1987 as a U.S. Navy sailor aboard the USS Ingersoll DD-990 at Pearl Harbor. Upon receiving an Honorable Discharge in 1989, he enrolled in the University of Hawaii at Manoa and received his Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting in 1994. He has taken advanced graduate courses in business and accounting.

Robin is also an Enrolled Agent (EA). EA’s are considered America’s Tax Experts. They are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service.

In 1997, Robin purchased the Kailua based accounting and tax practice of John McCandless (Founded in 1983). The practice eventually evolved into the Honolulu based firm, Pacific Outsourcing. Seeking to emphasize the personal nature of the services the firm offers, Robin has repositioned the firm’s name to reflect his commitment to small business and an amazing client experience.
