Company Information
Growth is in the air at this well-respected 25 year-old CPA firm in Denver! This Navigator Recruiting client merged with a branch of a national CPA firm and now has 45 employees and maintains its own local autonomy but has the resources and backing of a national CPA firm. The firm provides accounting, tax, audit, advisory, business valuation and consulting services for Colorado companies (mostly in the $1M-$10M revenue range) in a variety of industries: manufacturing, distribution and professional services (no government or not-for-profit clients). Many clients have complex tax issues which offer opportunities for business consulting (versus a Mom and Pop “volume-driven” shop). Partners have diverse backgrounds – having come from Big 4 firms and also mid-sized or smaller firms. The firm offers very good benefits and has excellent tenure among employees (most have been there for 5+ and 10+ years).
 
Responsibilities
The position will be responsible for:
  • Tax return preparation (S Corp, C Corp, Partnership and some trust and estate returns) including some complex returns
  • Review work, depending on experience level
  • Providing business advice for clients
  • Mentoring staff
  • Expectation is 2300 work hours/year with 1600-1700 chargeable hours. Peak hours should be at 55 hours/week although there may be a couple weeks at 60 hours. (The firm is able to keep employees for a long time with this reasonable work/life balance.)
 
Requirements
  • BS in Accounting; Master’s in Tax a plus but not required
  • CPA preferred (or CPA candidate)
  • 3-6 years’ experience in public accounting tax
  • Ability to communicate well with good analytical and problem-solving skills
  • CCH ProSystems experience and experience working for a mid-sized or smaller CPA firm is helpful but not required
