Useful resources for CPAs and their clients

Working with CPA Firms

alliantgroup serves more than 3,500 CPA firms nationwide. We do not compete with our CPA firm partners. Instead, we complement their services in the way a specialist complements a primary care physician. Initially, alliantgroup meets with the CPA firm to introduce our services and to establish the grounds for a successful, long-term relationship. alliantgroup then works with the CPA firm directly to identify prospective clients and tax service opportunities. We qualify the identified opportunities free of charge. Only after extensive consultation with the CPA firm and the prospective client does alliantgroup issue a proposal to the client.
