Johnson Hatt is a strategic management accounting firm located in Provo, Utah. We provide indispensable business insight to small market businesses from startup through growth and exit.  We strive to maintain a balanced client portfolio that ensures you receive the personalized touch, responsiveness, and special confidant that your business needs through direct access to the firm’s principal. We have experience in a wide variety of industries from private equity, software, and manufacturing to real estate, transportation, and construction. We typically fill the role of Chief Financial Officer for our clients and provide owners, investors, and managers with the finance, accounting, and strategy resource they need to maximize business value.

One of the most common things we hear from our new clients is “you’re not anything like my CPA, you’re the strategic partner I’ve really needed”. As the name implies, Certified Public Accountants, by licensure commitments and government regulation, have a fiduciary responsibility to safeguard the public’s financial interest, not yours. As a dedicated strategic management accounting firm, we are free from those requirements; our fiduciary responsibility lies squarely with you. Our focus, commitment, experience, and unique skill set are directed toward business and financial strategies that maximize business value and safeguard your business interests. 

Does Johnson Hatt replace my current CPA? Many of our clients continue to retain their CPA for tax preparation and leave the heavy lifting of business strategy, operational accounting, financial control and business analysis to us. In some cases, client engagements, due to government regulation, require a CPA for specific services. In these situations, if outside of your CPA’s skill set, we can recommend a firm that understands and supports the unique strategies we develop. 

Indispensable business insight is simply not an option in today’s fast paced and chaotic business environment. You need a partner that helps you bring clarity to the chaos. Specializing in the demanding and varied needs of small market companies, Johnson Hatt is your strategic finance and accounting partner.
