Accounting firms come in all sizes.
At GBB & Company, LLP, we like to say we’re “right-sized.” We’re large enough to offer your business or organization comprehensive accounting and tax preparation services that will help you grow your business and meet your financial goals. We’re also small enough that you’ll always receive hands-on, active involvement from our partners and staff CPAs.
We’re right-sized for a reason. While working with a large regional accounting firm, GBB’s founding partners realized we could bring far more value to each client through closer relationships. We built GBB & Company to be the right size to give you the added value of open access and deep business expertise.
Accounting and Tax Services – That’s It.
GBB & Company focuses on traditional accounting and tax services, and advice. We don’t sell insurance. We won’t do your IT consulting, and we won’t sell you investments. We provide timely and accurate accounting, tax and auditing.
After all, what you need most is accurate financial information delivered on time.
Close, Long-term Relationships
Accounting and tax issues are complex but relationships don’t have to be. GBB & Company is an accounting firm that doesn’t stand on ceremony. We’re family and we treat our clients the same – that’s why our client retention rate is so high.
We’ve developed close relationships with our clients, allowing us to advise them on not only what they ask for but also to anticipate their needs and provide advice on the things they haven’t thought to ask. We believe that communication is key to all of our successful relationships.
We analyze and match your specific needs with the right CPA and the appropriate level of experience, ensuring that your work is handled in the most economical manner for you. Some work may be handled by our staff, while more technically complicated work is performed by senior team members with deep expertise in the topic. All client work is always closely overseen by our partners.
Our partners and staff accountants at GBB & Company are always available to meet with you on an as-needed basis to discuss your business operations and any accounting or other business matters that may arise.
At GBB & Company, we offer you expertise and recommendations gained from years of experience and relationships with dozens of similar clients. In addition to making sure that your organization is in compliance with rules and regulations, we are always thinking of ways to improve internal controls, increase operational efficiencies, and ensure that financial information is provided in the most useful and understandable manner for your management.

If you ask our clients about GBB & Company, LLP, you’ll hear words like, “Timely,” “Dependable,” “They know what they’re doing,” “Efficient” and “Trustworthy.” While those aren’t the most exciting words in a recommendation, they are the exact words you want to hear when looking for an accounting and tax firm.
We know that competence and staying up-to-date on the latest changes in tax laws are a given when you’re looking for a CPA firm. What you really need are accountants and bookkeepers who complete everything you need on time, every time – whether a tax filing, an audit or a monthly financial statement.
