PAK Enterprises Inc

Our Mission is to help small businesses grow into profitable, successful companies by providing financial, managerial, and strategic expertise.

PAK Enterprises was founded as a bookkeeping, accounting and tax services provider for non-profit businesses in 2014.

As entrepreneurs, we have specific skill sets that are necessary for business. Let PAK Enterprises turn your vision into value. We will provide you with assistance in all your small business taxes, financial statements, and business needs.
