Who We Serve
Clients who are a great fit for our services are small and medium-sized businesses across the country that are not large enough to warrant having an internal accounting or payroll department. We serve clients in a wide variety of industries.

CSI Accounting & Payroll was founded in the early 1960s by Al Clausnitzer. We specialized in small business accounting, bookkeeping, consulting, and tax services right out of the gate.
We're still true to our roots decades later, even though our firm is much larger. Brian Paulson became the owner in 2002, and since that day, we have nearly quadrupled in size. We have since started a successful payroll division.
CSI Accounting & Payroll has a long history in the Twin Cities. Our experienced team has a deep understanding of the business climate in the area and takes pride in helping businesses and individuals thrive. Not to mention, we stay on top of local ordinances that could affect your business if you're located in the area.
Organizations and Recognition
CSI is a member of several professional organizations, including the Independent Payroll Providers Association (IPPA), and the Professional Association of Small Business Accountants (PASBA).
