RY CPAs was founded by Raffi Yousefian, a big four alumnus with a mission to revolutionize the accounting services experience. Raffi discovered his passion for accounting at a young age and later studied Accounting and Information Systems at the Robert H Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. He started his career in a fortune 500 tax department, then pursued intricate tax compliance and advisory at a big four accounting firm. After achieving superior ratings in big four accounting and helping build a tax reporting tool that would serve firmwide clients, he earned his CPA credentials and pursued his passion for helping small and enterprise level businesses by joining a small CPA firm. Throughout this journey, Raffi built a strong technical foundation, but discovered that accounting firms are evolving slower than other industries. 

RY CPAs launched in 2016 to offer an adaptive, responsive, and tech driven solution for clients seeking accounting and tax services. Our solution is simple: recruit like-minded, passionate and talented accountants, then leverage technology to free up their time so they can create value for clients.

Value-add
guaranteed

We do not require minimum commitments for our monthly accounting packages. We also don’t accept an engagement unless we know we can add value and exceed your expectations as an accountant and adviser. We let our caliber of work determine the duration of your commitment.

Team based
approach

We don't believe in the single point of failure approach. To reduce inconsistencies, skill limitations, and disruption in service, we’ve adopted a cohesive team-based approach. We have implemented cutting-edge technology and standardized processes that allow our entire team to deliver quality information and seamlessly transfer knowledge between team members. At RY CPAs you’re not limited to the knowledge, capacity, and availability of a single staff accountant. Your engagement will be managed by a team of diverse staff, senior, and principal level accountants that will seamlessly transfer knowledge and work together to solve problems and deliver results. Our migration to cloud-based accounting and document sharing platforms has strengthened this approach, as it provides clients and team members access to real-time financials and readily available information.
