Accounting and Business Consultants, LLC is a specialized consulting firm providing accounting, internal control, compliance, and audit related services in the Greater Philadelphia Tri-State Area. In addition to consulting, we are a licensed Certified Public Accounting Firm (CPA) in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. We also service several clients in the New York City and Washington D.C. metropolitan areas.
The firm was started in 1997. For 10 years, we exclusively serviced a handful of corporations mostly in Delaware. Eventually, other clients in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas became interested in our consulting and audit services. Occasionally, clients from outside the Philadelphia area have requested our help and we have expanded our service area for various clients.
If your business, government or non-profit entity requires a consultant, accounting, compliance or auditing expertise, we serve entities that will benefit from the quality, leadership, communication and hands-on expertise we provide our clients. We are a smaller firm, which means we are responsive, flexible, agile, and can adapt as needs change with speed and efficiency. As both a consulting firm and a licensed accounting and auditing firm, we have the expertise and provide professional resources and services that non-licensed consulting firms are not able to provide.
Our reputation for providing outstanding and timely client service is critical to our business growth and success. We welcome and encourage you and your team to explore how we may become a valuable resource and service provider to your organization. Call 800-930-2923 now or send us a message through our website.
