Focus Financial Service


Dedication, Experience, Reliability..


Started in 2010, Focus originated as a payroll company serving business owners within the Central Oregon market.  Realizing a greater need for business support services, Focus grew rapidly to become a company that offered more back office support services to an ever-expanding circle of clientele.  The common concern among our clients, and business owners in general, is the overwhelming compliance demands placed upon them by varying governing entities.  Demands that often erode valuable resources, and divert attention away from pursuing their desired business results.

People start a business because they have a passion for art, entertainment, hospitality, or any of a hundred other interests.  They soon learn that passion takes a back seat to a dozen unforeseen administrative tasks, tasks that can become so overwhelming it obscures the vision that originally drove the desire to pursue their dreams.  Our passion at Focus, our desire, is to help business owners navigate the administration, to help business owners see an alternative so they are again free to pursue their own passion.
