PrimeGlobal member firm Flaherty Salmin CPAs has been named as a Rochester Top Workplace for the sixth time.

Ask any CPA what they’ve been up to lately, and the unanimous answer is, “work, eat, sleep.” Even though the April 15 tax deadline has been extended to May 15, the team at Flaherty Salmin CPAs is still busily taking care of their corporate, affordable housing and personal clients’ needs, while also helping those businesses, organizations and individuals navigate the financial impacts and various economic relief packages available as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Although the Firm’s 65+ employees typically put in a minimum of 55- to 60-hour work weeks at this time of year during the deadline-driven busy season, staff members have nothing but good things to say about working at Flaherty Salmin CPAs. And, once again, they have received a Top Workplaces honor from The Democrat and Chronicle. And it’s not a fluke. Despite the long hours during tax season,

Flaherty Salmin CPAs culture remains “tops” and has resulted in their being awarded a Top Workplaces honor six years in a row.

Tim Flaherty
“Our folks are the best. Despite the long hours and hard work, we support each other along the way. It has been an unusual year for everyone coping with the pandemic. We are so fortunate to have this tremendous team. It is an honor that our people believe us to be among Rochester’s Top Workplaces year over year. We can’t think of a better reason to celebrate. We’re proud that the work we do as a Firm, and how we do it, is appreciated by our employees, our peers and our clients. It’s a testament to following our mission to provide excellent quality and the best possible service—and right now that’s more important than ever. Our team is 100% committed to helping the people we serve navigate through the various impacts and changes over the past year.” Tim Flaherty, Managing Partner, Flaherty Salmin

This honor is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization, such as alignment, execution and connection.

In addition to the Top Workplaces honor, Flaherty Salmin CPAs was named among America’s top recommended tax and accounting firms by Forbes in December 2019 and 2020, based on a survey of 1,800 industry peers. The firm was also ranked in the most recent Inside Public Accounting Top 400 Firms. In 2018, Flaherty Salmin CPAs earned a Best of Accounting Award from Inavero, based on client satisfaction surveys.

Since its founding in 1958, Flaherty Salmin has grown steadily as a direct result of its reputation and referrals from happy clients and other professionals. Today, the firm is ranked as the 10th largest CPA firm in the Rochester area.

While Flaherty Salmin delivers comprehensive CPA services for businesses and individuals, it distinguishes itself through its comprehensive knowledge of the community development and affordable housing industry, helping clients navigate the complex financial and regulatory environment. Services include cost certification audits, annual audit and tax return preparation, investor and tax related projections, compliance reviews and innovative consulting.

Many of Flaherty Salmin’s clients have remained loyal to the Firm because of the hands-on role its team takes, including proactively educating clients about the evolving tax law changes.
