Accounting Firms, By the Numbers
As we all know and dread, it’s tax season. Between that and the sustained political brouhaha over tax reform and the series of fiscal cliffhangers in Washington, it’s a wonder any of the accountants The Commercial Observer contacted had time to speak with us for our semiannual accounting issue. But the experts were happy to chime in about a range of accounting matters currently affecting the real estate industry. It’s also not surprising given, each accounting firm’s workload, that the industry is rapidly expanding in New York. Last year, Deloitte relocated to a 430,000-square-foot office at 30 Rockefeller Plaza while many of the city’s other top firms grew their employee ranks, possibly signaling future land grabs. Below, a breakdown of firms making the biggest moves.
