Certified Public Accountants

Loggins & Associates PC, Jonesboro accounting  firm has been boasting a new name and logo for a few months now:  Loggins Kern & McCombs  Some of you may be wondering what’s up with the new name and what does it all mean.

The name change recognizes the new partners in the firm, Miranda Kern and Gina McCombs. “Both Miranda and Gina have been involved in the firm’s strategic planning and decision-making for some time now,” said the firm’s founding partner and president, Ben Loggins.  “They have been instrumental in guiding the day-to-day operations of the firm, and I am thrilled to recognize their contributions in a more formal way by making them partners and adding them to the name of the firm.” [Read more…]

Kim Fourman participates in Principal Partners’ Day

On September 29th, I enjoyed spending the morning at Riverdale High School, partnering with the principal, Dr. Terry Young.  The day was sponsored by the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce as part of an effort to provide business and community leaders to visit the Clayton County schools and gain first-hand experience of the strengths and challenges of running a public school.

I had a wonderful time interacting with the students and seeing the progress that Dr. Young has made at this fine school.

Sales Made Simple Seminar — come as our guest

Do you know what the DISC personality profile is?  If you are in sales, and you are not speaking to the personality of your prospective customer, then you are missing out.

Let me give you an example — I am (in the words of one of the seminar presenters), “a screaming high I”.  I prefer social interaction — a party waiting to happen!  A salesman presenting me with his product should show enthusiasm and a great deal of support for my ideas.  However, if you try to sell a product to someone who is a high D in the same way that you sell to me, the sales presentation will probably fall flat.

A customizable sales presentation is essential to turning a prospective customer into an actual paying customer.

Loggins & Associates would like to invite you to a seminar on Friday, October 21st from 9am – 12:30pm that will discuss the entire DISC personality profile and how to use it with sales.  Please contact our office at 770-478-7424 and ask for Kim to inquire about coming as our guest at a special price.

“But I Don’t Live in Jonesboro, Georgia”

If you’ve been our “friend” on Facebook, or you’re connected with Loggins & Associates via LinkedIn, or even followed our firm on Twitter, you may have thought, “I know they are a very reputable firm and could probably save me money on my taxes, but I don’t live near Jonesboro, Georgia.” 

During the past tax season, Loggins & Associates serviced clients in 115 cities in Georgia.  We also have clients in 21 states outside of Georgia.  Of course, included in that number are states that border Georgia such as Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and the Carolina’s.  The other 16 states, however, span the nation from Maine to Washington and everywhere in-between.  Loggins also has clients in England, Ireland, Scotland and Italy.  Advances in technology have made it possible to work with clients across the globe, and it gives our clients the choice on how, when and where they want to conduct their appointments. 

Loggins utilizes a portal to exchange documents with clients in a convenient and secure manner.  When they need to provide bankers with up-to-date financial documents, they have access any time, day or night.  Clients can also provide us with current Quicken, QuickBooks, documents and spreadsheets (i.e. Word and Excel) through the portal.  A convenience which saves time and money.

We offer on-site appointments at our main office in Jonesboro.  We also conduct face-to-face appointments at our satellite offices in Lawrenceville, Peachtree City and Sandy Springs.  While onsite, face-to-face meetings are very valuable, virtual meetings offer flexibility and give clients a choice.  Loggins has utilized Skype and Face Time with clients, and is currently testing GoToMeeting, as virtual meeting alternatives. 

Over the past few years, Loggins has utilized various forms of communication to keep clients informed of changes in tax laws and other timely, helpful information.  We feel that when our clients are better informed, they can make better tax decisions which could affect their bottom line at tax time.  We currently provide updates on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and plan to roll-out a tax saving blog over the next few months.
