Your accounting questions answered.

ORBA acquired Red Granite in 2016.  This blog is meant to provide an overview of additional services and benefits that we can provide to our Red Granite clients who may not yet be familiar with our service model. Established in 1977, ORBA is a full-service audit, tax and consulting firm dedicated to helping its clients achieve their goals today and build success for tomorrow. ORBA specializes in accounting, audit and federal, state and local tax planning and compliance for privately-held businesses and not-for-profit organizations in a variety of industries.

As ORBA approaches its 40th anniversary, we acknowledge that the accounting profession has changed dramatically over the years and, while the problems our clients face remain similar, technology and business advances require us to continually expand and improve services to our clients.

Over the next few months, we will highlight additional services that we can provide to Red Granite clients and their owners and executives.

Cloud-Based Services

ORBA began offering full-service, cloud-based bookkeeping services several years ago and jumped at the opportunity to acquire the Red Granite team last summer.

The Red Granite team does excellent work in its core offering of full-service, cloud-based bookkeeping and accounting, and providing day-to-day financial advice to its clients.  In combination with ORBA, we can provide clients comprehensive tax planning and preparation, business growth and exit planning services as well.

Tax Strength

Unlike other mid-size firms, ORBA specializes in sophisticated tax planning and preparation services.  This is an area where we find that we can provide the most benefit to our clients.  We have a tax department of 35 highly qualified individuals that concentrate on closely-held business and individual tax areas.

In addition to regular income tax filing requirements, the ORBA team can assist you in many other areas.  A few areas where we can help include:

  • Sales and use tax issues;
  • State and local tax planning;
  • Tax structuring;
  • Adding additional capital; and
  • Providing executive benefit and ownership plans.

If problems arise, we also have a strong team that provides representation before the IRS and other taxing authorities.


Now that Red Granite has joined the ORBA team, keeping your tax and accounting needs with one firm ensures that everyone is working together for your benefit. At ORBA, we are always working on ways we can further meet the tax and accounting needs of each and every one of our clients.
