History of the Company
Snyder & Company was founded in Wilmington, Delaware in 1982 by Dennis Snyder, a CPA with a passion for working with small business owners. Early in his career Dennis quickly realized that small businesses were not receiving the same level of services and guidance from the CPA community as were larger clients. While larger clients had the benefit of monthly financial statements and accounting professionals to help them use that information to manage their businesses, the small business owner typically relied on a tax return to tell them how they did. Since their tax returns were often on extension it could easily be nine months after the end of their tax year before they found out if they were making or losing money. They could be out of business before they ever knew what was wrong. In 1982, Dennis started into business as an owner of an accounting franchise that specialized in providing monthly accounting services to the small business community for an affordable investment. Small business owners were finally able to make business decisions based upon timely financial information with minimal accounting effort on their part.
After ten years Dennis formed a certified public accounting firm that continued what the franchise started. To this day Snyder & Company continues to follow the service model that begun with the franchise in 1982. The accounting service focuses solely on the small business owner and continues to provide monthly accounting services to all of its small business clients, most of whom are within 50 miles of Wilmington Delaware.
In 2017 it was time to begin a succession plan for the longevity of the company. In January 2021, after almost 39 years of ownership, Dennis transitioned the of ownership of the company to Rob Wise. With over 25 years with the firm Rob took the helm confidently and is committed to providing the same level of specialty services to the Wilmington business community.
“Dennis and his team continue to provide the expert structural support that has helped us grow our business from no employees to many, from seasonal to year-round operations, from in person-only transactions to internet sales and deliveries. Their monthly reports ensure cost control, buying pattern adjustments, and seasonal fluctuation planning. All this and no worries about the IRS!”
