About Us

Why the name Venn Tax and Bookkeeping?

I was looking for a name for my company that was a little unique.  I wanted to pay homage to my Norwegian heritage and discovered that Venn is Norwegian for Friend.  This is perfect as I truly do see my clients as my friends – they are not just a business relationship but a relationship where we work together to reach common goals.   

I was also excited to find this because a Venn diagram is an illustration that uses circles to show the relationships among things or finite groups of things.  This is perfect as it signifies the relationship between your business and mine.
