Jim Colville has over 30 years experience as a CPA offering traditional CPA services. A key segment of his practice is working with both simple and complex data sets and providing easy to read and uncluttered reports. Jim has developed a wide variety of powerful Excel-based financial statement and tax templates and has been doing so since the first version of Lotus 1-2-3. He believes that programs such as Excel, when used properly, can be extremely valuable tools and huge time savers. Jim will be presenting the techniques used in his practice.

His design philosophy is “zero time reporting”: once the data is entered, the reports are “done”.
