INSIDE Public Accounting Reveals The Nation’s Top 100 CPA Firms For 2016
New Philadelphia, Ohio – With more than 50,000 public accounting firms throughout the United States, to be named one of the Top 100 is not an easy accomplishment, but Rea & Associates, an Ohio-based accounting and business consulting firm continues to maintain a place on the annual ranking list published by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA), a leading public accounting industry publication published by The Platt Group. This year, the firm is ranked 98 on IPA’s 2016 Top 100 CPA Firms list.
Considered to be one of the most accurate and up-to-date sets of rankings and trends, IPA’s rankings are based on the survey and analysis results provided to by more than 500 firms throughout the United States. Results are then compiled and used to gauge the overall health, challenges and opportunities of the accounting profession.
The IPA Top 100 list ranks of the nation’s largest firms by net revenue. At the end of its 2015 fiscal year, Rea’s net revenue totaled $35.4 million, a 6 percent increase over the previous year.
“We are honored to be recognized by INSIDE Public Accounting as a Top 100 firm again this year,” said Lee Beall, CPA, the firm’s CEO. “Being regarded as one of the top firms in our industry is a testament to our talented people, our unique culture and our desire to grow while expanding our service offerings. We continue to be dedicated to the goals and objectives outlined in our strategic plan. We believe that, by further enhancing our growing portfolio of value-added services, we will be better equipped to help our clients achieve and maintain financial well-being while providing them with excellent service and sound advice. This is an exciting time for Rea & Associates and the best is still to come.”
The professionals at Rea specialize in providing individuals, landowners and businesses, government entities and not-for-profit organizations with solutions to their accounting, tax and other business-related challenges. The firm provides expertise in accounting, audit, benefit plan design and administration, business valuation, succession planning, litigation support, profit enhancement, fraud detection and tax services.
In March, Rea was recognized by Accounting Today as one of the Top Accounting Firms in the Great Lakes Region. The firm moved up two spots to claim the 16th position on the list, which measures and compares revenue against CPA firms throughout Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.
