Testimonials

Dear Friends or Colleagues:
Re: Herman Kooke, Action Management

Action Management has been in charge of my financial affairs for the past ten years. During that time I have come to trust Herman Kooke with all of my accounting and general financial advice. With a high income it is unusual to find an accountant who will stretch to find ways of reducing taxes while maximizing net income. Herman has done this very well in my case keeping me at a 22% tax rate for the last two years.

I have used other accountants, some of whom were with the biggest and most expensive firms. What I experienced was bigger and more expensive bills, less individual attention and no real person to person involvement.

Since I know you, I have referred Herman to you. He will call you in the near future and I encourage you to set a time to talk to him. He will discuss your needs and give you an estimate of how he can improve your situation, lower your accounting costs and save on taxes. I realize that you probably have an accountant already however I think a second opinion is always an option whether for one of my patients or for you in this instance. Take a few minutes and talk to Herman. You'll be glad you did.

"Action Management orchestrated the sale of my business. As a result, I ended up, not only with a generous selling price, but also with a considerable amount of tax-free money in my pocket. With this money I bought another business."
