Bradley R. Helmeke, Certified Public Accountant, and Bekkerus Schott DeConcini Johnson, CPAs, have decided to merge their two accounting practices, effective Jan. 1, 2013.

The two offices are relocating to the original Farmers State Bank building, which was most recently Title Services of Perham.

The Helmeke staff has already moved to the new location, and the Bekkerus team will join them this month. Everyone will be up and running for the upcoming tax season.

The new office will be named Bekkerus Schott Helmeke DeConcini Johnson, CPAs.

In a written statement, the CPAs said the merger, "will benefit all of our clients from a technical and experience standpoint, while enabling us to still provide the personal service they have come to expect. The expanded space and combined personnel will allow us to provide better service and grow with the community."

Stop in and see the newly remodeled offices at an Open House on Tuesday, Dec. 18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., followed by a Business After Hours celebration from 5-7 p.m.

The new office is located at 160 3rd Ave. SW in Perham.
