#1 Local Financial Consultant
David Kirst, CPA
I have done almost everything—from helping start-up companies craft their financial plans, to preparing tax returns for companies with revenues in excess of $100 million. I have decades of experience that I can put to work for you.
I have worked with clients of all shapes and sizes – from sole proprietors to multi-million dollar businesses – and can develop an individualized service plan that meets each client’s unique needs and budget. My goal is not only to save you money, but to help you achieve business and personal financial goals, so you can do the things you love, and enjoy owning a thriving business.
Serving The South Bay
The financial practices and obstacles that businesses face are unique, and you can’t afford to have your financial advisor learning the industry on your time. Managing a business in the Bay Area alone can be a stressful venture, and poor accounting practices can impact your company’s financial stability.
Since 2001, I have proudly served companies of all shapes, sizes and fields in the Bay Area in achieving their financial goals, as both owners of a business and as individuals. I am an experienced professional who knows how to get the job done for small businesses. I have decades of experience, offering financial counsel to firms of all sizes and situations. My goal is simple: to arm you with insightful financial information and competent advice, so that you can feel confident making well-informed business decisions.

My expertise is in closely held businesses and individual taxes. Most of my clients run an S corporation, partnership, or single member LLC in the areas of real estate, professional services and/or distribution and manufacturing.

I leverage email and phone conversations to obtain requested information while maintaining the quality of the tax returns.

Analyze Existing Finances and Tax Plan
Most small business owners wear many hats: CEO, CFO, accountant and IT guy, all rolled into one. Even though there are many “do it yourself” tax software, the complex and confusing tax requirements have made it impossible for the average business owner to keep up with the confusion and chaos involved in these ever-changing laws.
There seem to be even more tax law changes in the last several years. The rules are tougher and penalties get higher. Business can’t afford to miss their tax obligations.
No doubt, accounting and tax work can take the fun out of owning a business. Plus, these time-consuming activities can distract owners from core business functions like product development, sales and customer service. But someone has to keep an eye on the numbers. Outsourcing is the smart and cost-effective way to get top quality accounting and tax work without adding employees to the payroll.
