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 3, is the second 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 278 firms identified, 250 were recommended for tax and 200 were recommended for accounting. HBK was among 172 firms that were recommended for both tax and accounting services.
“What should you look for in a firm?” the Forbes article asked, then answered, “A team dedicated to your industry—whether it’s cannabis or manufacturing—is a must. But make sure you also ask about what other value-added services are on offer, like a state and local tax practice, a wealth practice, or an IT advisory group. Has the firm itself embraced technology?”
“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.
