About Calculate Success

At Calculate Success, we understand that handling your business’s finances and bookkeeping processes by yourself can be a lot of work. Our goal is to use our accounting experience to help you better understand your company’s finances so you can make better business decisions and grow your business to its fullest potential. Whether you’ve never looked at a balance sheet before, or you simply want to get your accounting duties off your plate, we’re ready to help you take your business finances to the next level.

Your Trusted
Financial Partner

When you partner with Calculate Success, you get access to advanced accounting knowledge and a team that has over two decades of Certified Public Accounting (CPA) experience. Before founding Calculate Success, owner Lacy McGrew, CPA, MBA helped large companies make multi-million dollar decisions with confidence thanks to her accounting and bookkeeping expertise. Today, she and her team bring that same level of experience, skill and attention to detail to every client they work with.

Flexible Approach

Numbers are numbers, and keeping track of them is important in any type of business. We have the flexibility and tenacity to work with businesses both big and small across industries.

While other accounting companies pigeonhole themselves into a specific niche, we stay open-minded and eager to help businesses in a variety of fields. Whatever market sector your business is a part of, we can handle your accounting. 

Privacy & Confidentiality

We understand that privacy and confidentiality are essential for professionals in the financial world. That’s why we emphasize privacy with each of our clients and make their numbers’ safety our top priority.

When you need to trust a third party with your sensitive financial information, you can count on Calculate Success to uphold the highest ethical standards of confidentiality. 


Lower Payroll Costs

Hiring an internal accounting team can be costly for small businesses and national companies alike. Outsourcing your financial team to a third party like Calculate Success will significantly lower your payroll costs.

You’ll be able to avoid hiring a financial team and all the expenses and training that goes along with that.


Peace of Mind

An intangible yet highly important benefit of working with Calculate Success is peace of mind. When you partner with us, you can enjoy knowing that your finances are in good hands, allowing you to sleep better at night.

We also help take the stress out of tax season, since you’ll know year-round that all your expenses, payments, invoices, and profits are accounted for. 


One of the largest benefits of partnering with Calculate Success is the opportunity to experience greater freedom in your life. Many business owners spend around 10 hours per week on bookkeeping-related tasks. Whether you want to focus more of your attention on other business matters or spend more time living outside of work, outsourcing your financial tasks will help you get more of your week back. Our clients can free-up their schedules by handing their accounting processes over to us.
