Many businesses and corporations, especially new startups in San Francisco’s vibrant entrepreneurial scene, are eager to get a head start on tax preparation but do not know how to go about finding a good match.

“We shy away from the simple W-2 individual tax returns in favor of more complex tax challenges such as those faced by corporations,” explained Chun Wong, Managing Partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “From the perspective of our clients, this is a good thing, as it means we can focus on being the best tax preparer for corporate and business returns in San Francisco, an area where we add a lot of value.”

To read the post on finding the best tax preparer, visit It should be noted that the post explains the issue not just from the perspective of businesses or corporations, but also from the perspective of high net worth individuals. Often high net worth individuals have significant assets or complex business relationships and they, too, struggle to find the best CPA or accounting firm for their more complicated needs. Businesses can also visit the informational page at or click on the “Send Message” box at the top right of the website to request a consultation. No two situations are alike, so the best first step is to have a meeting and go over the basic situation. In that way, both client and accountant can make sure that it’s a “good fit.”


Here is the background to this release. Businesses and corporations in San Francisco, California, face complex challenges. First and foremost, California and San Francisco are high tax, high regulation environments. Just staying up-to-date with all the complex tax issues is a full-time job! Second, in light of the so-called Trump Tax changes, 2018 is the first tax year that is impacted by this new law. California businesses may benefit from some changes, while California individuals may not. Any individual or business situation will differ based on many factors, not just the law, but income, assets, and other factors in a business portfolio.

Finally, given the vibrant San Francisco startup scene, the post explains that startups and others who have started businesses are urged to do their due diligence to find the best tax preparer for them. The so-called “Big Box” tax services that pop up in downtown San Francisco like mushrooms after the California winter rains are not necessarily equipped to be the best tax preparer for a startup, new business, or indeed, an established business. This is even more true should there be international tax exposure. For these reasons, Safe Harbor is announcing a new post to its blog just in time for tax season.
