About Us

Kauffman CPA Company is an accounting business located in Lancaster, PA. Since 2013, we’ve helped creative agencies and small business owners gain a better understanding of their financial situations.

How We Work

As owner of a growing business, you probably need more than a bookkeeper. The more likely scenario is that you need a Chief Financial Officer with a support staff. But we understand that hiring a CFO might not be in your budget right now.


We designed our business to provide a comprehensive list of accounting services, which can include CFO-level expertise and insight, at a price that a small agency or business can afford. We’re able to keep costs down by using technology and automation to our advantage, while keeping customer relationships and communication at the forefront.

“Doug Kauffman and his accounting team are professional, responsive, ethical and tech savvy…a perfect combination for any small business owner! He manages the finances for my real estate appraisal firm, and the service is excellent. Without a doubt, Kauffman CPA comes highly recommended from me.”

John T. Morris

President/CEO, Morris Appraisal Group, Inc.
