Startups, as well as later stage companies going through an IPO, all have at least one thing in common – they need help with taxes.  We’re there for you.

Prior to Marpé, there really was not a good solution for tax support for early stage startups.  Corporation tax can get very complicated very quickly.  Going to a low-end provider really is not a good alternative for VC-backed startup companies.  But larger CPA firms are very expensive – and often they give poor service to startups because startups are not a priority for them.  We bring the sophistication and expert knowledge needed, and we deliver it at prices designed specifically for startups and early stage companies.
