The Democratized CPA firm adds Tax Plan Ventures LLC, based in Phoenix, Arizona to their Platform CPA Firm
PHOENIX, July 13, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dark Horse CPAs, a top accounting and tax firm serving small businesses and individuals across the nation, announces the addition of Adam Ripperdan, CPA, owner of Tax Plan Ventures LLC, to the profession's only democratized CPA firm. Mr. Ripperdan brings with him over 15 years of experience working strategically with small businesses and individuals in the areas of tax and accounting. With this acquisition, Dark Horse CPAs increases their presence in the Phoenix, AZ market.
The deal adds deeper expertise in comprehensive tax planning for high-net-worth individuals and entrepreneurs. For Tax Plan Ventures, the merger will provide more robust resources, in the areas of technology, staffing, firm administration, marketing, branding and access to deep expertise in a host of practice areas, to take their client service to the next level and scale their practice to new heights.
Speaking to the reasoning for merging his practice into Dark Horse, Adam remarked, "I don't think a tax advisor can fully devote their focus to serving their clients when they have to wear all that hats of a business owner. Dark Horse is unlike any other firm, blending technology-centric resources with a fun culture that gives me the support and backing I need to do what I do best and enjoy most…serving my clients at the highest level." Expanding more on the struggles of being a solo practitioner, Adam remarked, "when you are running a firm by yourself, you're forced to learn via trial and error. You don't know what you don't know so it's difficult to make meaningful improvements in your practice. Having a team of forward-thinking colleagues drastically shortens the learning curve of transforming your practice into one that is future ready."
Looking toward this future, Adam stated, "the industry is moving away from compliance towards advisory. Many CPAs aren't able to remove themselves from compliance responsibilities and, as a result, are not moving in a direction that will make their practice sustainable over the long-term. By removing myself from the day-to-day management of the business and obtaining the resources from Dark Horse to spend less of my time doing the compliance work, I have been freed up to focus my time on building client relationships and delivering value-added advisory to them. Accountants and clients alike need a massive shift in the way that public accounting operates and I believe that Dark Horse will be instrumental in changing the industry for the better."
"Adam is a thoughtful, detail-oriented individual who has the right skills and approach to provide creative tax planning strategies and execute on them," says Chase Birky, CEO & co-founder of Dark Horse CPAs. "Most firms will market themselves as being tax planning experts but when it comes down to how that translates into actual results for clients, there is a lot of room for improvement. Adam has a history of not only sourcing the right strategies for a client's specific situation but, more importantly, helping clients execute these strategies from start to finish, creating exciting outcomes for his clients. I'm beyond excited to see his practice thrive and for other Dark Horse CPAs to learn from his expertise in tax planning."
About Dark Horse CPAs
Dark Horse is the profession's first and only democratized CPA firm that puts the power in the hands of their CPAs to build and scale a profitable book of business within a collaborative community of peers who are evolving their own practices, together. They're able to do this due to a business model and philosophical approach that treats the Dark Horse CPA as the client so that they can serve their clients in a modern and strategic fashion.
Dark Horse seeks to disrupt the age-old, slow-moving accounting firm partnership model and replace it with a firm that sustains and feeds its CPAs, providing unparalleled opportunities for growth and shared ownership in order to compete against the biggest accounting firms and most sophisticated CPAs. This is why they adopted the Dark Horse moniker.
Dark Horse CPAs provide their clients with integrated tax, accounting and CFO services to small businesses and individuals across the U.S. The firm was founded to save small businesses (and their owners) from subpar accounting and tax services and subpar client experiences. These small businesses are Dark Horses among their larger and more well-known competition. Being a Dark Horse CPA means advocating for small businesses by bringing to them the tax strategies and accounting insights previously reserved for big business.
