“The team we work with at Effingham Equity has always been extremely helpful and knowledgeable in the agriculture industry and has provided valuable guidance and feedback on top of a quality audit delivered each year.”
At Blue & Co., we all have something in common. We didn’t get into this field because we love numbers and spreadsheets – although we definitely do – we got into this field because we love helping others. We’re driven by the impact that our work can have on our teammates, our clients, and our community. It’s our mission to learn about what keeps you up at night and find ways to give you peace of mind. Because for us, it’s all about your success. Genuinely. We know that what we do is about more than simply helping to ensure the success and profitability of your organization. It’s also about finding ways to help you achieve personal, financial, and life goals. And when you achieve those goals, you better believe we’re over here doing cartwheels to cheer you on.
Whether you’re running an agriculture business – such as a cooperative, crop farm, livestock operation, or timber producer – or part of the equine industry – operating a horse farm, a training business, or equine veterinary practice – we know the nuances and have you covered.
From wash to bottle, we make it our mission to help you streamline your business operations and achieve your goals. That way, you can focus on what you do best.
From family-run businesses and high net worth individuals, all the way to newly-formed operations, we can assist you in setting up your systems and operations to achieve financial success.
While we do provide plenty of compliance services – like tax return preparation and assurance services – we know that our most valuable role to you is that of a trusted business advisor. We’ll keep you up to date on trends with new ideas of what your company can do to maximize its success.
As a financial institution, you’ve got a lot of regulatory requirements and complex business issues. We’re well-versed in these issues and will guide you through these intricacies.
With more than 145 experienced professionals dedicated specifically to healthcare, we serve you with a deep and comprehensive understanding of your administrative, organizational, and financial needs.
We know that your industry faces unique challenges in strategy and regulation, and our team is ready to offer insightful solutions to help you succeed.
Whether you’re in manufacturing, wholesale trade, or distribution, our team members are specialized to help your business produce results and achieve goals.
We know the not-for-profit space inside and out — whether you’re a healthcare organization, fraternal association, higher education entity, community foundation, social service group, trade organization, or private/corporate foundation.
Whether you’re established and considering an IPO or just starting out, our team has a customized set of services designed to help tech startups thrive.

Life at Blue
- Bruce Vernon
“During my professional career, I have worked with other big accounting firms along with sole practitioners. Our organization switched to Blue & Co. last fall. In spite of being a first-year engagement, Kurt Beier, Gavin Fox, Mitch Parks, Erin Walsh, Paul Roth, Kristi Blausey, and Chris Reid provided us with the best service which I have ever received from any accounting firm.”Adam Scott
“They are very friendly, open, honest, and competent. One of the most important things for me is that they never make me feel as if I have a stupid question or should understand something. This is priceless.”Kim Bordenkircher

“Our direct contacts serve as trusted advisors, they know our business well and remain very accessible.”Tammy Anthony
“I suppose it is fair to comment that I worked with three firms before Blue & Co. that challenged my expectations. As far as accuracy, Blue is very detail oriented. I do not receive notices from the IRS requesting any forms that were missing or correcting the filed returns. As far as performance, our 2017 business and personal files were completed weeks early of deadlines. And as far as responsiveness, I’ve never waited more than 12 hours for a final answer.”Jason Greeson
