Platform Accounting

Champions of the boutique firm

With our roots in small firms, we’ve chosen to focus on the most rewarding part of accounting work—building relationships.

Doing things our own way

Platform was created to preserve the dynamics of small office cultures while incorporating the technology and connectedness of the 21st century.

Local relationships

Local accountants and their clients share a special rapport that comes from being a part of the same community.

Enterprise resources

In an ever-changing industry, sharing best-in-class operational resources and processes helps firms to navigate their future.


Deep roots, not branches.

Platform continues to grow while maintaining its small office ethos by collecting the best personalities and the best talent in accounting.
