We were established in 2009 as Updegraff Accounting Incorporated, and primarily served one of the largest local Accounting Firms in Dayton, caring for their clients on a contract basis. In 2011 we began focusing on building our own client base while continuing to serve our current base from our contract work. At the end of April 2011 Updegraff Accounting Incorporated ended ties with the local accounting firm and began focusing completely on our own client base.
In August 2011 we created our current name, UAI Accounting and Tax Services, to better reflect what we do and how we can serve you.
