The CPA firm built for CPAs.

Dark Horse empowers you to build and scale your own practice within a collaborative community. It's truly a better way to CPA.

Pick your poison.

Become a Partner in a bureaucratic, political, and/or antiquated CPA firm.

Sacrifice your time, money, and relationships to build your own firm.

These were your only options if you wanted to build and run your own practice - until Dark Horse changed the game. We've democratized the entire stack of what you need to either build a practice from scratch or scale an existing book of business. But don't take our word for it. Read about it from our CPAs.

Success Stories

Stop spending your time building the wheel.

We built Dark Horse so you don't have to spend your time, money, and energy building and maintaining all of the infrastructure, technology, marketing, branding, compliance, and everything else you need to have in place to be able to create a profitable practice that drives substantial value for clients. At Dark Horse, you'll spend your time serving your clients and team members. And all while growing your practice in a collaborative community of like-minded professionals who are invested in each other's success.

What we are (not).

We are NOT a franchise, and we are much more than a back-office service offering. We are a modern CPA firm with a differentiated brand and value proposition. Our Principals are owners of the firm, and they run their own P&L, so they can see their paychecks in real-time. They even have liquidity when it comes to their equity vs. the unfunded chain letter of the traditional partnership. Dark Horse exists to serve accountants so that they can serve clients and build a better life.
