A group of business people shaking hands

Welcome to Jeff W. Torrance & Associates

We are pleased to announce that the tax and accounting team from Jeff W. Torrance & Associates, CPA is joining Hauser Jones & Sas PLLC beginning January 1, 2022.  The combination follows Mr. Torrance’s exit from the firm to pursue a “once in a lifetime” career opportunity with one of his treasured clients.

HJ&S and JWT have entered into a referral and data sharing agreement that will allow for the uninterrupted continuation of tax, accounting, and advisory services of JWT clients following his departure from the firm sometime later during the year.  JWT clients CLICK HERE for further information.

In response to the announcement, Torrance observed:

“It has been my extreme pleasure to serve the tax and accounting needs of my clients over these past ten (10) years.  But in light of my decision to pursue an exciting and new career alternative, I believe that referring my loyal clients to HJ&S offers them a quality firm that delivers attentive service to closely held businesses and their owners.”

“HJ&S is also well equipped to assist the modern high net-worth individuals and investors who make up my client base.  They are a well-known CPA firm with the depth of resources needed to carry on where I am leaving off.”

Speaking on the referral agreement, Ellen M. Sas, CPA and Managing Member at HJ&S agreed, noting that:

“We are very pleased that JWT & Associates chose to partner with HJ&S.  Although labor markets are tight and inflation is pushing professional fees higher, since we have hired in the entire JWT pool of staff we will be well equipped to take on the added client load and we look forward to introducing the JWT group of clients to the HJ&S service model.”

“In addition, the JWT client base is very similar to the types of clients served by the HJ&S team and so we do not anticipate any drop off in service or significant difference in fees or timeliness of quality service for those JWT clients wishing to move ahead with HJ&S.”

With 5 equity partners and 40+ FTE, the Puget Sound Business Journal Seattle Book of Lists – Puget Sound Business Journal (bizjournals.com) currently lists Hauser Jones & Sas PLLC as the 15th largest CPA firm in the Puget Sound Region.  HJ&S is a full-service CPA firm providing tax, audit, and advisory services to closely held businesses and their owners within the framework of industry niche specialty areas.  In addition, the firm caters to individual taxpayers with complex tax positions and strategic needs.
