There’s Been A Dramatic Shift


As the AICPA put it, CPAs are now expected to be their clients' “most trusted business advisors,” and as CPA Horizons 2025 pointed out, a CPA is no longer defined by “traditional services such as tax preparation, audits, and financial statements.”

72% of Business Owners Left Their CPA Because They Only Received “Reactive Services” 

In this shifting landscape, firms that will thrive in the future will learn how to use this trend to their advantage, rather than struggle against it. 

The CPA Team Based Model is designed to help accountants: 

Are you a successful business owner and totally frustrated by the amount of taxes you pay every year?

The truth is, the world is full of accountants who do little more than record history, putting the “right” numbers in the “right” boxes on the “right” forms by the “right” deadlines to keep you out of trouble. But then they call it a day.

Are you confident you’re taking advantage of every tax break you deserve?


Tax preparation and doing the company's financials (compliance work) is not a substitute for tax planning.

“I love what you guys are doing. Keep up the great work!”

Ronald Baker, Author of six best-selling books, including, Measure What Matters to Customers and Firm of the Future

“You’ve hit the nail on the head! This is a great opportunity for CPAs, and I look forward to working with you.”

Salim Omar, Author of The Ultimate CPA Practice in the New Economy
