Who We Are?
At FB&Z we are committed to building authentic relationships with our clients, each other, and our community. We are proud of the professional services we offer, and humbled to call many of our clients “friends.” It is an honor to not only serve families and businesses in West Michigan, but to have been doing so for generations.
Our approach to offering financial services is simple: We want to help you continually improve your financial position and add value to your organization. Everyone on our staff shares this goal and we encourage them in every way we know how – from creating a positive office environment to making sure they can maintain a healthy work/life balance.
Since Dwight Ferris established the firm in 1959, we have responded in kind to the growth and changes of the West Michigan business climate. Today, we offer not only a full range of traditional accounting and auditing services, but also counsel and advice in a variety of highly specialized fields, such as tax planning, employee benefit plans and non-profit’s. We work closely with our clients to define their needs and capabilities, and then make adjustments, as needed, in the types of services we provide. As technology and regulations change, we monitor their potential affects on our clients, as well as those that are driven by new laws and governmental policies.
In addition to our memberships in various accounting organizations and accreditations, we are also a member of BKR International. Our firm is one of only two in the state of Michigan. Through BKR International, we have up-to-the-minute access to independent accounting and business advisory firms nationwide and in over 70 countries around the globe. By working with these affiliates, we are able to provide reliable expertise and service to our clients whose operations and interests may extend well beyond the Holland or Grand Rapids areas. This gives us – and our clients – the assurance of knowledgeable, regionally-savvy tax professionals.
As a result, Ferris, Busscher & Zwiers can offer many of the advantages found in a national firm while retaining the independence and one-on-one service that put us on the map nearly 60 years ago.
