About Padgett Business Services | Brentwood

At Padgett Business Services we began helping small businesses in Middle Tennessee in July 2003. Based out of Athens, Georgia, franchise owner Greg A. Lemons, CPA has built a company focused on serving small business owners and clients as a place “Where Your Success takes Root.” We are at sixteen years of experience serving clients in Brentwood, Franklin, and Middle Tennessee and have loved every minute of it.

Accurate financial reporting, and income tax filings, along with communicating regularly with business owners is at the core of what Padgett Business Services offer.

Lemons shares, “As a business owner myself I know clients deserve the best service from me and my staff. We stand out because we tailor our services to small businesses.”

“We are available to our clients and we charge a flat fee that fits within the business owner’s budget. We tailor our fees and want our clients to know they will not be underserved and overcharged. This is a key difference.”

If you’re considering working with a CPA firm, the best time to hire Padgett is before starting a business. This allows us to educate the new business owner on a number of things such as tax deductibility of business expenses as well as guide them into the best entity structure; deciding how they should get paid, and taxed.

Clients can focus on building their business while our team at Padgett focuses on avoiding tax issues in the future.

As businesses grow, often clients will choose Padgett Business Services as they need their books cleaned up, or the decision is made to outsource to professionals. Hiring a professional firm will help avoid mistakes in their future and will often alleviate the mismanagement of time by a small business owner.

Why is Padgett Business Services unique? We are staffed and focused only on small business and our fees and services are structured toward the small business owner.

The three core areas we focus on at Padgett Business Services are:

  1. Accounting/CPA
  2. Tax Preparation
  3. Bookkeeping

We also provide the following services:

  • Payroll services
  • Small business advice and consultations

Our Principles

The staff at Padgett Business Services strives to provide superior service over that of other firms. We stand by three tenets:

  • Professionalism
  • Quality
  • Responsiveness

Our professional staff comes with experience and expertise in the field. We work as a team to combine expertise so you can get the most from our service. That means that a Certified Public Accountant will look over the work of our bookkeepers, for example.

In addition, we offer a quality service with personal attention. Our staff members perform continuing education to stay at the top of their expertise. We have a list of highly-satisfied clients who entrust us time and again with their financial needs, and a large amount of our business comes from client referrals. We will deliver the same level of service that these companies enjoy to your business.

Finally, we are responsive. Our staff is always available when you are in need of our financial advice and services. Our staff is fast, but competent at the same time.

We stand by our principles, making Padgett Business Services one of the top accounting firms in the Brentwood, TN area. Allow us to show you our high level of service with a personal touch.

We help you look ahead

Many small business owners think of tax season as a time to look in the rearview mirror at the previous year. At Padgett, we help you also look through the windshield. Not only do we look at last years finances to calculate what you owe, but we help you get a firm understanding of what your next year is going to look like—before the tax season even begins. We want to be more than just a tax service—we want to be the proactive business partner that you deserve. We are motivated by helping your business
