We’re In It for YOU

Do you want to save time and money on your taxes … and yes, even get a better return? What about saying good-bye to the stress of doing your own books?

Maybe your dream is to get your business idea off the ground … or take your current business to new heights.

Whatever it is, the experts at Inland Business Group can help.

Located in Spokane Valley, WA, Inland Business Group was founded by a team of experts to provide the financial and business development services of a large firm, but with the affordability, convenience and personal service of a small firm.

In fact, IBG’s pricing and operations are specifically designed to benefit individuals and small business owners right here in the Inland Northwest.

Get to Know Us

Having lived in the Pacific Northwest most of my life, I am committed to serving the people and small business owners in this beautiful area.

I received my B.A. in Business Administration and Accounting from Eastern Washington University and am currently working on my Masters in Taxation at Gonzaga University (Go Zags!).

My passion is taking the pressures of accounting systems, taxation and business development off the shoulders of small business owners.

This allows me to simplify their lives with services that follow all the requirements of state and federal tax agencies and keep their day-to-day operations running smoothly.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids.

Eli Shiva

Account Manager

Upon graduating in 2001 from Eastern Washington University, I worked in Seattle for one of the top 5 international accounting firms.

I decided I preferred living in the Inland Northwest and returned to the area.

After achieving ownership in the largest North Idaho CPA firm, I realized small is a better fit for me. My specialties include personal and business income taxes, nonprofit IRS filings, small business consulting, nonprofit and governmental accounting, audit preparation, staff and board of directors training, and financial records cleanup.

I am very active in the community including having served on several boards for nonprofit organizations and am passionate about volunteer work.

We Love Making Good Things Happen

Alex was wrapped up in his business 24/7. He pulled overtime by doing his books after he came home. After signing up with IBG, Alex now comes home to rest and enjoy his family.

One client last year paid $2,300 in late fees. Once we got him on bookkeeping, we’ve made sure his reports are filed in a timely matter, and he has been fee-free for the past year.

We got Jack an additional $2,850 last year when we reviewed his prior year’s return and corrected some errors.

The Spokane Shop Inc. was able to save $350 month on merchant fees when we showed them the saving they can get by switching to a different merchant provider.
