The CPA firm built for CPAs.
Dark Horse empowers you to build and scale your own book of business within a collaborative community. It’s truly a better way to CPA.
Pick your poison.
Work for a bureaucratic, soul-sucking, traditional CPA firm.
Find out how difficult it is to go out on your own.
These were the choices if you wanted to stay in public accounting—until Dark Horse changed the game. We’ve democratized the resources, tools and technology needed to build and service your own book of business. But don’t take our word for it. Read about it from our CPAs.Success Stories
The antidote for what ails you.
Why create a firm from scratch when we’ve already done the tough stuff for you? After all, the only asset you can sell as a CPA is your book of business. So why dilute your efforts by trying to wear all of the ill-fitting hats of a business owner? You’ll scale your book faster with us. You'll spend time doing more of what stimulates you. And, most importantly, you'll add value to your clients. And when it comes time to sell, you’ll have a much bigger asset on your hands.Book a Discovery Call
What we are (not).
This isn’t a franchise model, and it’s not just a back-office service offering. This is a full-service CPA firm that you become a part-owner in and run your own P&L for. It’s everything that’s great about the collective resources and knowledge of a CPA firm without the politics, resistance to change, and opaque overhead allocations to partners.
The Dark Horse difference.
