Schall & Ashenfarb, CPA's has been serving the accounting community for over 30 years and prides itself on having the hands-on style of a small firm with the resources and quality of a larger, regional firm. Our primary niche of working with not-for-profit organizations allows us to hire and retain professionals that specialize in this unique industry. We also have a more traditional side of the practice that works with clients in commercial industries that include arts and entertainment such as Broadway and Off-Broadway Theater, touring theatrical productions, legal, medical and other professional service firms, professionals and self-employed individuals and more. We provide financial statement preparation, accounting and tax planning services for these clients.

We are members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, New York State Society of CPA's, the Goverment Audit Quality Center of the AICPA and the AICPA's Private Companies Practice Section. We place a premium on providing hands-on service to small businesses and entrepreneurial individuals.

We have clients in the following industries:

  • Not-for-profit organizations
  • Broadway theater and entertainment
  • Legal, medical and other professionals

One of the qualities that sets Schall & Ashenfarb apart from other accounting firms is that we are devoted to taking the time to listen to our clients' needs and determine the type of service that is required. Some business owners and managers need their accountant to act as the quarterback of the team by integrating their accounting staff with their operations staff. Others require a more hands-on role in developing reporting systems, training staff and interpreting results back to management, while others require us to review the books and records and issue financial statements at periodic intervals (monthly, quarterly or annually). We are equipped to work with you in whatever capacity is deemed necessary. We are committed to return all phone calls and e mails within twenty-four hours.

We provide outstanding service to our clients because of our dedication to three underlying principles: professionalism, responsiveness and quality.
