BKDA Testimonials

“As a CPA firm that works with a large number of Minnesota charter schools, LarsonAllen is well aware of the value that a good service provider provides to a charter school. The annual audit, required by state statute, goes much more smoothly and is less expensive when a charter school works with a service provider that pays attention to details, is conscientious about providing information that is complete, accurate and timely, and has a mindset that looks out for the best interests of the charter school in terms of meeting deadlines and reporting requirements and in maximizing the revenue potential of the school. In our experience, Beltz, Kes, Darling and Associates is such a service provider. They have a very good understanding of the audit process and of the accounting requirements and work hard to ensure that things do not slip through the cracks.”

- Dennis Hoogeveen, Principal - LarsonAllen, LLP

“The team of Beltz specialists, led by Judith Darling, are exceptional in that they are very knowledgeable, conscientious, accurate, and responsive to all requests. In addition to this, the entire team is approachable and very pleasant to work with.”

- Kelly Guiterrez - St. Croix Preparatory Academy

“Some charter schools are well-prepared for an audit while others may need fine-tuning. The difference is usually in the service provider. In conducting a number of charter school audits, HLB Tautges Redpath knows immediately if the table has been set with well-prepared, 'audit-ready' financials. We know the table will be set when our clients work with BKDA.”

- Thomas W. Hodnefield, CPA, Officer, HLB Tautges Redpath, Ltd.

“BKDA is by far the best business and financial management provider in the metropolitan area. They owned the power of 3-C’s (concise, consistent, and control).

The team members at BKDA are always professional and on time with all state and federal mandates, allowing School Directors to focus on educating students.

BKDA is a lifelong partner since our inception in 2003. They look out for the best interest of our school district, not their business bottom line.”

- Christianna Hang, President of Hmong College Prep Academy
