According to an exhaustive study by Forbes, HBK ranks as one of America’s most recommended tax and accounting firms. The magazine’s “America’s Best Tax and Accounting Firms,” released on December 2, is the third of what promises to be an annual study to determine which U.S. CPA firms are recommended most by their clients and other accounting professionals. Of the 273 firms identified, 200 were recommended for tax and 200 were recommended for accounting. HBK was among 177 firms that were recommended for both tax and accounting services.
“Your tax and accounting firm’s first goal should be acting as the trusted advisor to the CFO. That’s where it starts, but as the CFO role has grown functionally, the best tax and accounting firms are growing with it.” the Forbes article stated.
“Forbes’ perspective on what a prospective client should look for in an accounting firm mirrors HBK and how we have developed our services over the years,” noted HBK Managing Principal and CEO Christopher M. Allegretti. “Companies benefit most from the insight and understanding of a firm steeped in experience and both technically capable and industry savvy. Moreover, we’re delighted to be so highly and broadly recommended by our clients and other industry professionals.”
The Forbes article included advice to businesses about choosing an accounting firm.
“Why should corporations review their relationships with outside tax and accounting professionals now? It’s likely that there’s a lot more the pros could be doing for you—audit and tax and beyond—to protect and enhance your business.”
“We couldn’t have said it better,” Mr. Allegretti noted.
