one of the most well respected CPA firms
Shea Labagh Dobberstein (SLD) has the extensive expertise and exceptional service you need when you require a financial statement audit for your Walnut Creek business. We enable you to understand risks and establish protocols that safeguard assets, while providing assurance to investors and other stakeholders. The benefits of an audited financial statement include assistance in uncovering shortcomings in internal control of financial reporting by identifying control weaknesses. Audited financial reporting can reduce the cost of capital by lowering the interest rates you pay for borrowing, making your organization more attractive to investors and contributors. For example, many large donors won’t even consider giving money to a nonprofit that doesn’t make an audited financial statement available.
America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms
SLD has earned seven consecutive “unmodified” peer reviews without comments from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). This achievement is attained by less than 10% of accounting firms in the US, pointing to our adherence to strict quality control standards. It takes experienced professionals to drive this kind of success. We are led by principals and staff such as Bob Zurcher, who has provided audit and assurance services for more than 30 years. He has assisted companies in a range of industries and stages of growth in resolving complex accounting and financial reporting issues. Our clients appreciate the senior-level attention they receive from Bob and others at the firm.
We also offer a comprehensive portfolio of audit, tax, and accounting services for businesses in the real estate, distribution and wholesale, food and beverage, professional services, manufacturing, construction, and logistics sectors. The quality, efficiency, and technical expertise of our services have earned recognition from Forbes Magazine, which named us to its 2020 list of “America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms” and INSIDE Public Accounting, which called SLD a “Best of the Best” and “Top 200” firm.
We replaced a ‘Big Four’ accounting firm with SLD to perform audits on our defined benefit pension plan and our savings and investment plan. Not only did they meet our aggressive deadline schedule, they provided an exceptional level of customer service while delivering a quality product. The SLD team was professional, courteous and responsive. We look forward to building a strong relationship over time.
