Founded in 1973, DDK and Company offers a thoughtful balance of experience and innovation. We build on our strengths by drawing on the knowledge of our veteran partners while expanding our menu of services into new fields. Based in New York, we serve clients both locally and nationwide.
For most clients, our services are comprehensive. In addition to tax and accounting, clients rely on our guidance when making significant business and personal financial decisions. Our partners – many with a comprehensive understanding of specific industries such as real estate – provide a range of business consulting services, while our extensive Tax and Accounting departments manage those aspects of client portfolios.
Growing Capacity, Personal Touch
As we grow, we continue to position DDK as a multi-service provider that businesses of all sizes can trust. We’re large enough to deliver services comparable to those offered by much larger firms, yet still modest enough in scope to provide personal service. Nationwide our clients tell us we don’t “seem like a New York firm,” due to our friendly, accessible approach, and we’ve never forgotten the importance of nurturing personal client relationships.
When they use the largest CPA firms, even mid-sized companies can get lost in the shuffle. And those companies that opt for smaller firms quickly learn that they can’t handle the sophisticated accounting demands of today’s global markets.
We like to say that any competent firm can produce a financial statement or complete a tax return. However, its DDK’s personal method of doing business – from a few extra phone calls throughout the year to insightful questions that help clients uncover additional deductions or business opportunities – that separates us from the competition.
In addition, on particularly challenging projects, small teams of partners, many of whom have been with us since DDK’s earliest days, collaborate on assignments. Their expertise stacks up against C-level executives at the largest firms.
Serving a Range of Industries
Another advantage of our medium size and diversity of services is that, as our clients grow larger and expand their businesses, we continue to service their increasingly sophisticated needs. DDK works with a range of industries – among the largest being high net-worth individuals, real estate, sports & entertainment businesses and professionals, and start-ups. This diverse expertise means our clients feel comfortable knowing that if they open a new business in another industry or expand operations overseas, we’re prepared to partner with them on that journey.
International Connections, Enhanced Consulting Services
In many ways, DDK is uniquely positioned to service our clients’ international needs. We handle a large book of international business, a segment that’s growing rapidly, as more businesses expand globally and face international tax issues. In addition, we have worldwide connections to leading accounting firms through our membership in KS International, an association of independent accounting firms located across six continents. KSI’s members provide on-the-ground expertise which gives our clients access to local tax, accounting and consulting experts with a thorough knowledge of local statutes and business cultures; this partnership means DDK can offer the most sophisticated advice possible on international funding proposals, matters relating to nationality and immigration, international audits, offshore structures, international trading and more.
Even when clients approach us with business or legal needs that fall outside our areas of coverage, often legal issues, DDK makes thoughtful referrals to trusted advisors in these fields.
