No matter the size of your business, chances are companies may need assistance with complicated accounting projects from time to time. BPM’s Technical Accounting Group is here to assist and advise so our clients may focus on their business operations. We scale up with companies during spikes in operations related to complex accounting projects or periodic reporting, and we scale down when typical operations resume.
We pride ourselves in collaborating with companies to achieve their accounting and reporting goals in a cost-effective manner. Our work is exciting and includes a number of projects with Bay Area IPO’s who are trailblazers in the making. We are seeking driven and high performing individuals who want to join an entrepreneurial and forward-thinking group.
