The highly regarded Palms Springs-based accounting firm, bartonCPA, announced today its acquisition of Orange Tree Tax & Bookkeeping, which will expand the company’s operations into the Redlands area of the Inland Empire.
With offices in Palm Springs, Palm Desert and Antelope Valley, the expansion brings an opportunity for the team to serve other communities with their signature high level of technology and knowledgeable, caring staff. From the beginning, over 25 years ago, the firm has consistently managed measured growth, adding offices and staff to service the ever-expanding base of clients ranging from individuals to small business owners in a multitude of industries.
“We’ve always challenged ourselves and our team to stay ahead of the changes and challenges of annual tax preparation. Our strength lies in understanding the big picture for our clients throughout the year,” said Greg Barton, owner and CEO of bartonCPA. “Our firm was one of the first in the Coachella Valley to understand and provide services to the LGBTQ community, and directly to cannabis businesses through our special division bartonAdvantage. We are thrilled to welcome Dennis Grimes and his team, and merge the strengths of Orange Tree Tax & Bookkeeping with our modern approach for all of their clients,” he concluded.
The new office is located on State Street in downtown Redlands, and has been led by Dennis Grimes, E.A., A.T.A. With more than 40 years of experience, Dennis and his team have been involved in the financial growth of many local families, businesses and non-profit organizations. “As the pandemic unfolded and new tax parameters were introduced, it was time to branch out and find a larger firm that could maximize our strength and take our clients to the next level. We are confident that we have found the perfect fit with Greg, Dee Dee and the bartonCPA team,” Grimes said.
The headquarters for bartonCPA is in a historic building in the famed Palm Springs Uptown Design District, which mirrors the owner’s passion for the mid-century modern design aesthetic that is seen throughout their offices and their Mondrian-inspired company logo.
