Your Business is Our Business
Traditionally, accountants have concentrated on preparing financial statements and tax returns - essentially telling clients where they have been. We would prefer to help you get where you are going.
We constantly ask our clients, "What are your needs and how do you see us helping you meet them?". By listening to you and looking at things from your perspective, we help you define your goals. Then we tailor our services to help you achieve them.
When you are a Schowalter & Jabouri client, you're the focus of a "team" effort headed by one of our Partners. Through close professional contact with you, your Partner assembles a group of professionals with the expertise and insight to help you succeed.

Our Success is People
Schowalter & Jabouri is committed to challenging our personnel to maintain their own high standards in an environment which encourages the setting of higher goals and developing the ideas to achieve them.
Our professional personnel are hand-picked, not only on the basis of outstanding academic achievement, but for the qualities that show genuine concern and dedication to the firm's future growth. All professional personnel participate in regular, ongoing associate training, seminars, continuing education programs, and conferences that keep us up-to-date on the changing economic scene. Our commitment to the accounting profession is evident by our affiliation with professional organizations such as the Missouri Society of CPA's, Nexia International (independent member firms that provide a premium service to clients requiring an international approach to their affairs), the Center for Audit Quality, Governmental Audit Quality Center, and the Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center. These memberships demand stringent quality control standards which must be evaluated externally every three years to assure compliance.
These affiliations demonstrate that we have the quality, expertise, and specialization you would expect of an international firm. We are large enough to handle the demands of our clients, yet small enough to provide the continuity and personalized service which you, the client, should expect.
