A full-service accounting firm specializing in international tax and business consulting, GPCPAs was conceived to deliver the same services that Fortune 500 companies receive from the Big Four firms.
Our focus is to put these services within reach of all-size businesses and federal, state, and local government agencies. To meet our premise, we have assembled an elite team of partners, professional advisors, and foreign correspondents from large firms that assist companies in the Fortune 500 environment.
We have streamlined processes, identifying and eliminating the most costly and unnecessary infrastructures to optimize investments and help your business grow in size, scope, and revenue at a fraction of the cost associated with traditional firms.
We are members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants (FICPA), and the Global Professional Network XLNC, an international association of independent accounting, law, and management consulting practices from across the globe.
Through a multidisciplinary approach, XLNC firm members, like GPCPAs, offer a global forum to develop mutually beneficial relationships among peers. Through XLNC, GPCPAs support our members’ development, aiding smooth and consolidated growth, facilitating networking opportunities to exchange views, ideas, and know-how, as well as the ability to benchmark and share business and experiences.
