We're making CPAs cool.

Gardner & Capparelli was established in June 2016. We are certainly NOT your stereotypical accounting firm! We are a boutique firm specializing in virtual CFO and cloud based accounting services, working with start-ups, rescue accounting and taxation. Matt & Jim spent the better part of their careers with a large regional firm in the Upstate New York area. The idea to start G&C was born out of the desire to be in control of our destinies and ultimately live any lifestyle we wanted. So, we began our journey down the path of entrepreneurship and we met with anyone who was willing to take a meeting, mentor or guide us. Along the way we met a ton of interesting and dynamic people who were entrepreneurs themselves. It seemed there was an increasing number of people putting down roots and starting businesses, many of which were technology based in Syracuse and all over Upstate New York. This new wave of businesses and entrepreneurs didn’t fit the model of the traditional accounting firm. So, we set out to offer an alternative solution and today we are working with clients all over the northeast with the intention to leverage technology and expand our reach to anywhere in the country. 

We do everything purposefully. Our culture reflects our desired lifestyle and we built our business around that notion. We march to our own beat, wear whatever makes us comfortable and love what we do. This all makes us who we are and most importantly stay passionate about what we do. We built our office to feel like a techy start-up. Our style and personalities are what make us so approachable and appealing to our clients. We don’t hire “bean counters”, we hire dynamic accountants. We love the idea of someone having a side-hustle or other business experiences. This shows that they have an entrepreneurial mindset in their repertoire. It makes us that much more valuable to our clients. Technical capabilities are important, but so is understanding people. In addition to all of this, we are also extremely good at what we do!
