What food executives look for in today’s CPAs

Think back to the days when you might visit a CPA only to find him sitting in the corner of his office, wearing green eye shades, hovering over a stack of documents trying to make heads or tails of a client’s financial statements or tax returns.

Well, those days are long gone and that vision has been replaced by a close working relationship between a business owner and his or her CPA. In fact, many owners view their CPA as their most trusted business advisor.

While a CPA still prepares tax returns or financial statements, those services have become only the basic services that are expected by food executives.
