September 25, 2018 – San Francisco, California. Safe Harbor LLP, a top San Francisco Accounting Firm with a focus on tax services for businesses, international tax, and high net worth individuals, is proud to announce a new blog post on the topic of an “Accountant in San Francisco for,” focusing on how customers often search for an “Accountant for Small Business” or an “Accountant for Startups.”

The article explains how the “best” accountant is less one with a specialty per se and more one who listens to clients and really researches the opportunities between their incomes and the US and California tax laws.

“Customers often somewhat mistakenly believe that they need an accountant who specializes in this or that,” explained Chun Wong, Managing Partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “While specialization is important, we argue that our focus on being the best accounting firm in San Francisco by focusing on customer needs, means we can be the best accounting firm for small business while at the same time the best accounting firm for high net worth individuals. Why? Because we listen.”

Here is background on this release. Many San Franciscans are concerned about their high taxes. California is one of the most expensive, most overtaxed states in the United States, and so – not surprisingly – affluent residents and those with businesses seek to minimize their taxes. Those in the technology sector, for example, might seek out an accounting firm for technology businesses, while those in the restaurant sector, might seek out an accounting firm for restaurants. The reality, however, is that many businesses and individuals face similar challenges. What is needed is not an accountant for this or that industry, but rather an account who will do the deeply detailed research necessary with a client and then take that information to brainstorm tax minimization strategies. The reality is that an accountant for this or that business is less important than an accountant who listens, does research, and then helps to implement best-in-class tax minimization strategies.

As no two business or individuals are the same, interested persons are urged to reach out to Safe Harbor LLP for a consultation. Journalists and bloggers looking for experts in California and federal tax law are urged to reach out for interview opportunities as well.
