Over the last fifteen years we’ve experienced tremendous growth as we work towards our vision of bringing the accounting industry into the 21st century. But naturally, it didn’t happen overnight. The idea for 1-800Accountant was born in 1999 when our founders were working at PricewaterhouseCoopers, one of the world's largest professional services firms. There, they conceived of a company that would bring world-class accounting services to the underserved small business segment, at a price all could afford.
They created a revolutionary membership model using flat rates and monthly pricing to reduce accounting costs. By leveraging the rapid growth of the Internet they were able to bring the accountant to the business — instead of the other way around — lowering costs and increasing efficiency. Despite their technology focus, our founders understood the need to preserve the accountant - client relationship.
Today, the days of waiting at an accountant's office are over. Our clients are still welcome to visit their accountant at our office, but can work just as easily from the comfort of their own home. And now, after a decade of revolutionizing the small business tax industry, 1-800Accountant has simplified and lowered the costs of individual accounting. We're ready to do your taxes!
