The Mission Statement of Accountants CPA Hartford, Connecticut, LLC
William Brighenti, Certified Public Accountant, Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor

Much of the website of Accountants CPA Hartford, Connecticut, LLC is devoted to articles discussing various accounting, tax, or auditing statements, bulletins, codes, regulations, interpretations, opinions, pronouncements, and methods promulgated by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB).  Like Delphic oracles of antiquity, these supreme bodies of accounting and taxation have a reputation for issuing statements veiled in ambiguity and incomprehensibility to the uninitiated, keeping tax attorneys and certified public accountants
the high priestesses of the accounting and tax mysteriesgainfully employed.  Although a number of guides and interpretations are available to professional accountants on the market today, many fail to provide a comprehensive understanding of the accounting and tax pronouncements.  Moreover, most—if not all—are not readily accessible to the general public and are prohibitive in cost.

Accounting is the language of business.  In light of our country's present economic difficulties, too much is at stake not to understand its syntax, grammar, vocabulary, and methodology.  It is the mission of Accountants CPA Hartford, Connecticut, LLC to assist the "uninitiated" small business owners and individuals in understanding this very important language. 
Within this website are links to articles explaining and illustrating in as simplest terms possible the application of some of these accounting and tax rules.  For instance, there are technical articles on the calculated value method for valuing employee stock options as compensation of non-public companies (SFAS No. 123R) and the inventory price index computation (IPIC) method for valuing LIFO inventories (IPIC Method).

Many of the articles herein are dedicated to the subject of construction accounting because of William Brighenti's background as a construction controller and manager for nearly twenty years.  Consequently, articles can be found discussing:
