Kerri Cuff

It was 25 years ago when Kerri Cuff decided she would rather be an entrepreneur than spend her career in banking. Cuff had an idea to fill a niche in tax preparation and accounting that she believed was needed, so she opened the doors to ATMS in 1994. Cuff realized that many small to medium”size businesses didn’t have enough work to employ a full time accountant or bookkeeper to fulfill their needs and also didn’t have the budget to cover the high cost of an large accounting firm or full-time CPA. The most effective plan for these businesses, Cuff believed, was giving them the option ATMS offers, a place to outsource their accounting and taxes that can offer clients a more affordable and less expensive option.

Cuff is a graduate of Missouri State University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Business Management degree before beginning her career in banking. She was in banking eleven years before accepting a position with a private accounting firm for seven years. 

As president of ATMS Cuff has participated in all areas of business accounting and taxes. She has completed many audits for companies, including one big audit which turned up an embezzlement scheme of over $250,000. Cuff was instrumental in assisting her client with the prosecution of that employee.

Cuff has used her banking experience as a catalyst to guide her clients in the preparation of loan proposals for banks and the Small Business Administration. She is a registered agent by the Missouri Secretary of State. Cuff also assists clients in the formation of LLC’s and corporations, and has many other areas of expertise she can assist clients with. Kerri is a native of Kennett, Missouri and credits her parents for instilling the entrepreneurial spirit and business sense it has taken to make her successful. She has one dog, Haley, who rules the roost at the office and is her constant companion.
