Key 2 Accounting




Tax Preparation


Our team or accounts in Fort Collins and our team of accountants in Hawaii are all experienced Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), and are backed by talented support staff  who are committed to saving you time and money. We use the latest technology to deliver prompt accounting service that’s always friendly, professional and customized to meet your needs including payroll, book keeping, tax preparation, and consulting.


Even the best Certified Public Accountant firms in the world can only help you if you understand what they’re talking about. At Key2 Accounting, clear and easy-to-understand communication ensures that you’re not left in the dark about your own finances. Because we have a local Fort Collins CPA firm and a local Kapolei firm, we understand the nuances of our local economy, and we’re always available to answer any questions you might have. We are committed to working with you one-on-one to provide the best solutions for your tax situation.


As your Certified Public Accountant firm, we answer to you. Expect us to be transparent, timely, professional, accurate and responsive—at all times. We make your interests our priority, and we take pride in the quality of our advice and the accuracy of our work.


Unlike bigger firms, we’re surprisingly affordable. We have the knowledge and experience to lower your tax liability and meet your business-finance needs, but we’re small enough to be able to offer truly personalized service. Our consulting packages eliminate unforeseen costs. And whether you work with us only at tax time or throughout the year, you’ll always know what to expect from our experienced group of Fort Collins CPAs.


As a locally owned Fort Collins business, we value the long-term working relationships we have with many of our clients and appreciate the opportunity to understand their businesses and share in their success. We’ll be there when you need us, as we partner with you in pursuit of your financial goals—offering creative solutions and helping you make the best decisions for your business.

C. Thompson

Key2 has been doing my taxes for years, and then I decided to make my life even easier by having them do my bookkeeping. It’s simple, it’s easy, and it’s given me back so much time to do the things that I love doing. Key2 has my complete confidence and trust!

Akele Gundaker

Key 2 Accounting has made things so much easier for our businesses and other financial ventures. Melissa and her team are friendly, responsive, and so professional! We use their services for payroll, general accounting, and tax preparation. Their comprehensive approach takes so much off our plate and saves us both time and money. 

Mike Arrieta

I love Melissa and her team! They are knowledgeable, efficient and communicate well. They made this past tax season hassle free as I just gave everything to them and they got it done! Wouldn't want to do the taxes for a 1031-tax deferred exchange myself

Michele Cadiente - Cargo

Very thankful for the team at Key2 Accounting. They are on it and keep me on task with all I need to do to keep my business books in order for when tax time rolls around. Easy to work with and very communicative. They are simply AWESOME!

Lindsay Wahine Oke Kai

Melissa is always so helpful and efficient. She is always making sure that she shares the updated IRS tax laws with me so that as a financial advisor I can guide my clients to make the best decisions for their finances. She also has educational material to assist business owners and entrepreneurs alike with handling their businesses the right way so they don't fall into tax problems down the road. If you're a business owner or entrepreneur and want to make sure that you are building your business by the book while taking advantage of key tax laws that can benefit your business, I highly recommend contacting Melissa at Key2Accounting. Let her focus on the bookkeeping and taxes while you focus on your business.

Tala Trading

I have owned businesses throughout my life. I was always skeptical about having an outside form deal with my books, taxes, etc. And then I met Melissa Clary and the most excellent staff of Key 2 Accounting. Now, i want them to do everything, i find myself sending them things before they even ask. I worl closely with Nicole. She is like a family member to me. Always pleasant and always taking care of our needs. We wnet from 3 locations to 8, soon to add another. We are so very grateful to have them on our team. If you need an accountant, bookkeeper, or business/tax firm that can really take care of your business, Key 2 Accounting is my people's choice winner.

Derek Kalai

My business has been thriving ever since I partnered with Key2 Accounting. Accountability, transparency and great communication make this a match made in heaven. Ive jumped from 3 different accounting/bookkeeping firms prior to working with Key2 and I cant say much more than, “I love working with Nichole and Melissa!"
