One thing we are particularly proud of at Lanphier LLP is the relationships we have developed with other firms and solo CPAs in the local and international community. We are proud to be a referral partner for firms both bigger and smaller than us, working together to provide the best services possible to our clients.
We have developed valuable relationships with several of the largest accounting firms in Denver. These firms often see clients that they know are not a good fit for them. They realize that clients and projects of a certain scale just don’t make for profitable relationships over the long-term for either party. We are happy to give these firms the peace of mind that they have a referral partner with the technical expertise and the appropriate scale to serve these clients.
Alternatively, sometimes large firms have clients they do desire to work with, but the client has certain needs that this firm can’t service effectively or efficiently. For instance, we may provide accounting support for these clients to ensure a smooth and cost-effective tax preparation process. We can also support these clients with annual information reporting, such as Form 1099-MISC or Form 1042-S, which a large firm may not handle.
We also have valuable relationships with other small firms and solo CPAs. Our unique specialty in international tax makes us a great referral partner for other practitioners that don’t practice in this area. Additionally, we are happy to provide limited consulting on certain clients or projects where another CPA might prefer to have another set of eyes.
Most importantly, we are extremely respectful of our referral partners. We will never do anything to undermine existing client relationships or poach projects that are desirable for the firm that referred them. We know there is enough work to go around for everyone, and we simply seek opportunities to leverage our unique strengths to the benefit of our clients and partners.
