About

HiAccounting was founded in 2009 by the team at Hawaii Human Resources, Inc. (HiHR). In providing outsourced HR services to many of Hawaii’s most successful small- and medium-sized businesses, HiHR found that time and again clients were unable to connect to the core principles of integrity, transparency, and dedicated customer service when dealing with any of the available Accounting and Bookkeeping resources. Whether it was a local behemoth or a faceless offshore firm, the alternatives repeatedly left clients wanting more — more attention, more value, more reliability and more piece of mind. Thus, HiAccounting was born — experienced, professional, reliable, and run by people you know and trust!
