We were audited and I simply didn’t know what to do. I was very stressed and worried so I called the IRS….they were very intimidating. I knew immediately we needed help. I called a few people I knew in the Hickory area and they all recommended Rink & Robinson, CPA's.

The staff has been a huge help to me and my understanding of accounting in general.   They are great to work with and promptly answer questions and emails.  They take the time to explain things in a way which makes sense and helps me to move forward. I used to do my own taxes, but realized I was paying way too much in tax.  I am extremely happy with their service and would refer them without hesitation.

Rink & Robinson has been a critical partner from our beginnings.  Without their knowledge and expertise, our company would not be where it is today.

My business started growing and the next thing I knew I needed employees. I knew having to manage payroll and payroll taxes would be something new so I reached out to Michael Rink for his help. Not only did he get my payroll with direct deposit established, he help with some valuable tips regarding my daily bookkeeping. Without his expertise, our company would not be where it is today. Thanks Michael!

Michael Rink started working with our company in 1990.  He immediately set up our business in QuickBooks and assisted us with entries during the first year until we felt comfortable with the software.  Of course, he is our full-time CPA.  Michael has played a key role in our success and our growth over the years.  I never thought of writing a review until now.  Its bittersweet now that we are retiring and making changes in our life.  Now Michael is helping with our estate planning.  We couldn't have asked for a better CPA to grow our business and to hold our hands along the way!
