The strong relationships Bradshaw, Gordon, and Clinkscales’ partners develop with clients are what sets them apart from other CPA firms. They promise, “The reason our clients find us, choose us, and stay with us is that we don’t simply offer commodity services. We’re not just number-crunchers. We roll up our sleeves, stand beside you, and help you solve problems, big and small, so that you can grow.”
Founded in 1980 to provide personal and small business tax and accounting services, this CPA firm has grown with the city of Greenville to become one of the largest accounting firms in the Upstate. The growth has created more opportunity and resources for the firm to expand its services to larger companies while still maintaining personal relationships with clients.
The people at Bradshaw Gordon & Clinkscales (BGC) have seen just about everything. The Firm serves businesses in a wide range of industries from distribution to manufacturing, construction, retail and non-profits. Chances are if you name an industry, BGC is currently serving clients in that area. Also, BGC provides more than just tax and accounting services – the Firm helps clients with bookkeeping, payroll, buy-sell agreements, internal control implementation, business valuations, forecasts, financial statement audits, compilations and reviews.
Peter Tiffany, a managing partner, says, “Our primary goals are to build personal relationships with our clients and to have a fantastic team at BGC to serve our clients and the community. I think we are succeeding on both goals.”
