CPA Firm Miranda & Associates Expands into San Diego County
Miranda & Associates (M&A), a full-service accounting and management consulting firm, announced it has expanded its Newport Beach-based practice into San Diego through the addition of North County Tax & Accountancy (NCT). The merger doubles M&A's Southern California practice and positions the firm for continued growth of its professional service offerings.
M&A is led by a team of seasoned professionals and will benefit from the addition of NCT's Principal Bill Walters and his entire service team of eleven. Founded in 2006, NTC is a full-service accounting, tax, and business advisory firm that serves clients throughout San Diego County. Similar to M&A, the firm has professional experience in a variety of industries and partners with its clients to offer them full access to its resources.
"The addition of the North County Tax team brings over 500 new client relationships into our fold and adds professional resources that will truly solidify our presence in Southern California," said Bob Miranda, founder and managing director of M&A. "The firm's deep community roots and loyal client base are a benefit to our firm, as we share this same culture and commitment. The expansion of our practice into San Diego provides an excellent opportunity to leverage our international expertise of cross-border advisory services."
"We are thrilled to be a part of Miranda & Associates," said Bill Walters, principal NTC. "Our core competencies in small business accounting and taxes enable M&A to offer a more robust service offering. With this seamless union, we can leverage our complementary strengths and relationships to expand and boost profitability."
M&A was established in 2007, during the height of the recession, and has grown organically by offering a broad range of professional services. The merger, financed by California Bank & Trust in Irvine, will enable M&A to continue turning challenges into opportunities by serving as a trusted advisor to leading businesses and individuals. Led by founder Bob Miranda, who has over thirty-five years of experience in accounting, auditing, business turnaround, finance operations, and management consulting, M&A's expert team serves clients throughout Southern California as well as Alaska, Missouri, and Texas. Miranda's career has included senior executive positions with international accounting and consulting firms, including Deloitte & Touche, KPMG, and Jefferson Wells.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
