CSI Accounting & Payroll has a long history in the Twin Cities. Our experienced team of accountants, bookkeepers, payroll specialists, and marketing professionals have a deep understanding of the business climate in the Twin Cities area and take pride in helping businesses and individuals thrive.

Clients who are a great fit for our services are business owners whose businesses are not large enough to warrant having an internal accounting or payroll department. We serve clients in a wide variety of industries.

CSI was founded in the early 1960s by Al Clausnitzer, the business started out specializing in small business accounting, bookkeeping, consulting, and tax services right out of the gate.

Decades later, although our firm is much larger, and the personnel are different, we are still true to our roots. In 2002, Brian Paulson became the owner of the business, and since that day, we have nearly quadrupled in size. We still offer accounting, bookkeeping, tax, and consulting services to small and medium sized businesses across the region. We have also started a very successful payroll division within our business that services the same clients.

CSI Accounting & Payroll is a member of several professional organizations including the Independent Payroll Providers Association (IPPA), and the Professional Association of Small Business Accountants (PASBA). PASBA has twice recognized CSI Accounting & Payroll as one of the top small business accounting firms in the country. In 2013, they awarded Brian Paulson and CSI with the Large Firm of the Year award. In 2018, they awarded Brian Paulson and CSI with the Life Time Achievement award.
