Accounting Heritage Group LLC (AHG) emerged in 2010 from volunteer efforts while assisting small business owners to unscramble amateur efforts to use modern-day accounting software without necessarily understanding accounting principles or local and federal business laws or guidelines. There was a clear niche market that needed to be served. The company discovered the market and built services that address the specialized needs of dental practices, law firms, construction companies, retail stores, IT firms, and health spas.
After 21 years of distinguished career with premier national parks conservation organizations, Davinder Khanna founded the AHG exclusively to serve the needs of small businesses, nonprofits, and individuals who are trying to achieve their goals. Davinder is a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor.
The AHG is a single-person owned business. It subcontracts with accounting and tax professionals on an as needed basis. The AHG provides services in the areas of accounting, tax, online marketing, and human resource.
The demographics in the Mid-Atlantic region indicate a steady growth of young professionals, and also a large group of retirees who want to start a business as their second career. This dynamic allows for growth of AHG. Young professionals need dentists and lawyers. Retirees need IT, accounting and marketing services when starting a new business. And most small business owners are seeking low-cost services, that include regular communication and education of their finances, accounting and taxes.
Growth in the company has spread from word-of-mouth from clients, referrals from CPA firms as well as on-line social media and other referring sites.
The business began with a small savings and credit cards and broke even within the second year of business.
Future plans in the near future for AHG are to establish an office abroad utilizing its expertise. AHG philosophy is that it’s more important to be able to provide personal service to each client, and keep down the cost of subcontractors, than to focus on rapid growth.
