CPAsNET’s A Great Place to Work Award is employee driven.

Participating firms must meet a minimum standard of workplace excellence to be considered for the award.

We are honored to be a 2019 winner of CPAsNET’s a Great Place to Work Award!

The Board of Directors has named Christina Tharp, CFO of Hamilton Tharp; Chairman of the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) International Executive Committee.

Tina is the Managing Partner of Hamilton Tharp, LLP, the Solana Beach, California-based public accounting and business consulting firm. As Chairman of the EMEA International Executive Committee she will be responsible for the strategic planning of the organization’s international alliances with Auditrust International. Tina will also represent CPAsNET by traveling to Auditrust International’s EMEA Meeting in the Fall of 2019.

CPAsNET’s partnership with Auditrust was conceived because of the increasing need of business who rely on their CPA firms to provide global resources and specialists. CPAsNET firms meet their client’s growing international demands by working within a system of international associates who help serves mid- market enterprises looking to expand their footprint. 

Tina was unanimously re-elected for this prestigious position by her peers.  Sarah Johnson Dobek, President of CPAsNET noted that: “Tina is well-respected within the organization, profession and international community of trusted financial advisors. A true trailblazer, Tina understands the importance of continued innovation and providing clients with the local, national and international perspective needed to prosper in challenging markets and times. The International Executive Committee will benefit from her expertise” said Dobek.

Tina has nearly a quarter century of experience in working with international financial issues and is the youngest member of CPAsNET to be elected to this post. In addition to holding her B.S. degree in Finance from San Diego State University she also serves on the Executive Committee of the Professional’s Education Network, an organization dedicated to providing opportunities to minority student seeking careers in the accounting professions.

Every year, we take an opportunity to review our business practices and determine better and more efficient ways to serve our clients.  This year has been especially challenging due to the changes in tax law, the time and costs to educate our staff in these changes and the increased responsibility for keeping our client information secure.

Our profession has seen unprecedented changes in 2018!  With the passing of TCJA (Tax Cut and Jobs Act), we are tasked with learning and understanding a whole new set of tax rules and regulations – keeping in mind that California does not conform with the TCJA.  This sweeping tax package drastically changed the way federal income taxes are calculated. From brand new provisions to significantly revised forms, extra time and resources will be needed to ensure we properly report your tax situation next year.

As we have seen too often, many companies have had their systems compromised and unknowingly released confidential information.  We take our systems and security very serious and make sure that we are always protecting our client information.  This particular dedication to securing the data comes at a high cost, but we feel it is necessary and worth the extra expenditure to give our clients’ an added security level for their private information.

Based on these considerations, we’ve determined that a fee increase is necessary to prepare your 2018 federal and state income tax returns along with year-end planning and strategies. The good news is that more work on our end typically means a lower tax bill for you, even after considering our fee increase We feel this increase is necessary due to the additional time required to comply with the new rules and ensure we take advantage of all opportunities to minimize your tax.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Again, we appreciate your business and hope to continue our relationship.

Cindy Acord recently attended CPAsNET’s 25th Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois. Hamilton Tharp is one of only 25 accounting practices in the nation selected as a member of the prestigious network.

At the conference, Hamilton Tharp was recognized by CPAsNET for 10 years of membership!
