Nick Liguori, CPA, Owner
Welcome! I’m Nick Liguori, owner of Liguori Accounting. I am a Certified Public Accountant in NH with a Bachelors in Accounting from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH.
After spending a number of years in both public accounting and in the private sector, I have discovered there is a need for accounting and tax services focused towards small businesses and small business owners. Hard work and dedication are essential to running a small business, and I have developed a passion to work with small businesses as a CPA. By working with clients to implement automated processes and procedures, we are able to simplify bookkeeping and accounting for businesses of all sizes. The result is more meaningful and timely financial information for business owners so they can make better decisions and focus on what matters – their business – instead of getting lost in daily bookkeeping and accounting.
