With its primary office outside of downtown, yet with a strong focus on international taxation, startup issues, and business tax advisor services, the accounting firm is redoubling its efforts to reach those who think “downtown” when they search for accountants.

“Our new downtown address helps us reach those customers who want a downtown focus at their CPA or accounting firm,” explained Chun Wong, Managing Partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “The reality, however, is that after a downtown meeting, it will be much more common to communicate over the phone, via web video, email, or secure upload than to enjoy the breathtaking views and vitality of San Francisco’s urban scene.”

Here are three newsworthy elements of the downtown outreach strategy. First, the accounting firm has published a pithy blog post on helping downtowners with their taxes at It should be noted that that post has garnered a 4.5 star review rating out of ten votes. Second, the firm has a specific landing page with direction to its downtown address at Third, that location can now also be found on Google Maps at


Here is background to the release. San Francisco has enjoyed a new “Golden Age” when it comes to business vitality. The city is full of new businesses and prosperity, and despite political conflicts over homelessness and other very real social problems, the reality is that San Francisco has displaced San Jose as the capital of “Silicon Valley.” Youth of all types flock to the city, not for its reputation as the “City of Love” but rather for its reputation as the “City of Business” and the “City of Startups.” The downtown area has become part of these business-friendly scene, along with the South of Market (Soma) area as well. That said, when it comes to tax and accounting services, these can be provided from anywhere in the city, not to mention anywhere in the Bay Area or California. While traditionally seen as one of the best CPA firms in San Francisco, Safe Harbor has been headquartered not in downtown but in the “Avenues” section of the city. The relaxed, intellectual atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Francisco has helped the firm’s accountants do the deep, hard thinking necessary to create innovative tax strategies.

Be this as it may, the firm’s latest efforts at “downtown” outreach have meant an evolution in strategy as the firm continues to explain to every new resident of San Francisco and ever new startup or entrepreneur that excellence in tax minimization knows no location, whether downtown or otherwise.
