Entrepreneurial Spirit. Independent expertise.


We may not have met, but we already know you.

We understand that considerable thought goes into the decision to select a new auditor or tax advisor. Most likely, as a decision maker, you will want to know the answers to questions like:

  • Has your firm done work for other companies that have the same issues as I do?
  • Has your firm done work for other companies that face the same challenges, I do?
  • Has your firm done work for other companies that require the same level of expertise as I do?

With 60 years in business, 70+ CPA’s and 40+ tax advisors, the answer the majority of the time is an enthusiastic, “Yes.”

We understand that organizations in today’s business environment need more than just an accountant or business consultant. GBQ professionals understand that companies, like individuals, have unique characteristics that require special expertise and knowledge. As a client of GBQ you will work with a firm that has breadth, depth and can bring value beyond basic knowledge of generally accepted accounting principles and IRS regulations. You’ll benefit significantly from the support of a straightforward partner who knows your industry, but is focused on serving the unique needs of your company.

We know what to look for to help you minimize business and tax risks and more importantly, the knowledge to help identify opportunities that will help you improve your operations and many times the profitability of your business.
