About Our Company

FACTS-5 is a multi faceted company providing a wide range of business solutions to small businesses throughout South Louisiana.  FACTS-5 provides financial consultation, accounting services, computer sales and service, tax preparation services, and other business services to individuals and small businesses. 

This company originated in 1966 by Robert E. Chauvin, Sr. (deceased 1995) as a tax preparation service.  In 1970 his son, Donald P. Chauvin, joined the firm and added a full service accounting practice to the tax preparation services being offered.

The company expanded their area of service in 1980 when they offered computer sales and services.  This was the year that IBM introduced the IBM PC, JR to the world and the use of personal computers began to explode in use.  Don’s son-in-law, Shawn Etie, joined the firm to head up that department after graduating ULL in 1995. 

In 1990 the company welcomed Don’s daughter, Pamela D. Chauvin-Trahan, into the practice.  During Pam's 27 years of service she has had the opportunity to professionally prepare thousands of tax returns for the best clients in all of Vermilion Parish.  Our advanced tax preparation service is second to no one and we offer a guarantee unsurpassed by anyone.  Through Pam's insistance, we offer FREE electronic tax filing on every income tax return we prepare. 

During the ‘90 decade the Internet proliferated and FACTS-5 added a 5th avenue of service which they categorize as “Other Business Services” which includes website development and hosting, Notary services, FAX and copy services among others. 

Don says “Our mission is to be a one stop shop for many of our customer’s business needs.  When a potential new business client walks through our doors, we can assist that client from his initial business planning and take them to the point of opening the doors to their business.  We help train them and prepare them for the demands of various government entities they will be dealing with while in business.”

It is this commitment to customer service that supports the motto used by FACTS-5:
