Chris is one of the best accountants and it’s not even close. I use him personally and for my business. He is one of the most responsive service providers I’ve ever worked with. My former CPA was great but wasn’t equip to help me as a business owner since the former CPA was focused on personal taxes. Chris has been a truly invaluable partner / collaborator on numerous M&A deals in the small to medium sized business space, providing financial due diligence to various clients that I’ve worked with ranging from a buyer of a demolition company to a buyer of a niche online goods business. LOI If you’re looking for a rock solid CPA or someone that is really good at M&A financial due diligence, look no further than Chris’ firm.

Working with Midwest CPA was an absolute relief. Given our intricate tax situation involving ties abroad, multiple rental properties, and a non-traditional family structure, I was initially overwhelmed by taxes this year. However, Chris was incredible. Not only was he extremely professional from the get-go, but he also provided ample support, simplifying what could have been a very daunting process. His expertise was evident at every step, making everything comprehensible and straightforward. I cannot thank Chris and Midwest CPA enough for their exemplary service. We'll undoubtedly be entrusting them with our future tax endeavors. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Chris Barrett and Midwest CPA to anyone looking to acquire a business. Chris is a knowledgable and reliable partner in a process that can be difficult to navigate. Throughout the process, Chris was clear in his communication and prompt with responses - always available when needed. I did not end up acquiring the business I hired Midwest CPA to diligence, and I feel confident in that decision thanks to the analysis Chris did and the questions he asked of the seller.
