August 2, 2019 – San Francisco, California. Safe Harbor LLP, considered one of the best accounting and CPA firms in San Francisco for businesses and corporations, is proud to announce a new post that dives deep into the meaning of “best” when it comes to bookkeeping, accounting, and tax services.

The post argues that there is no single standard by which a consumer should or can judge a CPA firm; instead, it advocates reaching out for a consultation, checking online reviews, and evaluating the long-term working relationship between accountant and client.

“Our society is obsessed with superlatives,” explained Chun Wong, Managing Partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “While we are very proud of our ratings on Google, Yelp, and other review sites as to being one of the top-rated accounting firms in San Francisco, our new post reminds consumers that what matters to them is the personalized, individualized service that they get for their individual or corporate needs.”

Here is background on this release. Many San Franciscans are proud “do-it-yourselfers.” Whether it’s building a deck for their Noe Valley apartment, figuring out the complicated Muni System on their own, or creating their own political action committee, Bay Area residents are proud to be independent and pro-active. This can be detrimental, however, when it comes to taxes. Taxes, unfortunately, are complicated and even more so when one resides in the highest taxed city in what is arguably the highest taxed state, California, in the Union.

Recent tax changes have made the tax code even more complicated, and many San Francisco residents have international tax exposure due to the global nature of their city. Add in the vibrant startup and entrepreneurship scene in the Golden State and one has a rather difficult mix of hubris and tax complications that might end badly when it comes time to file one’s return. For this reason, smart San Francisco residents and businesses often seek out a best-in-class accounting firm. But how do they determine what “best” is? Best can mean top-rated as measured by online reviews, certainly, or best can mean an accountant or CPA who comes highly recommended from a trusted colleague. But as the new post by Safe Harbor argues, finding the best accounting firm means finding an accounting team that will work hard to understand one’s financial situation and then optimize that situation vis-a-vis the complex San Francisco, California, and US laws. For these reasons, Safe Harbor LLP is proud to announce its latest post on accountants and tax.
