VPTax Expands to New Burlingame HQ

Central Location Supports National Growth

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 17, 2012) - VPTax Inc., specialists in corporate tax, have moved to a new, larger corporate headquarters in Burlingame, California. The move to larger offices and a more central location will support VPTax's expansion to other metropolitan areas in the U.S. and provide better access to the pool of highly qualified tax professionals in the entire Bay Area.

VPTax was founded in the Bay Area in 1991 and has been headquartered in San Jose for the past 21 years. Originally named EricThomas, VPTax adopted its new name at the start of 2012 and began an expansion strategy which included the opening of an office in Seattle and the recent signing of its first clients based in Austin, Texas.

Your Tax Director Down the Hall

VPTax has a unique business model -- it is exclusively focused on corporate tax. It provides cost-effective corporate tax advisory services and tax-return preparation services to clients from startups through Fortune 500 corporations. VPTax principals have an average of 20 years experience in corporate tax with combined public accounting and in-house corporate experience. For smaller companies, retaining VPTax is like having a "tax director down the hall," while for larger corporations, VPTax provides an additional and complementary source of advice that strengthens the resources of the existing tax team.

VPTax's new premises are at 1350 Bayshore Highway, Suite 215 Burlingame, California 94010. The new location provides easy access to San Francisco and the North Bay as well as Silicon Valley and the East Bay. It is close to the San Francisco Airport.

"Many accounting firms are too focused on their own bottom lines and short-term revenue goals," commented VPTax Founder and Principal Thomas Brehmer. "At VPTax, our culture and our objective are to help our clients succeed. We're not aiming to be the biggest; our goal is to be the best at what we do, by becoming the outsource, in-house tax director for our clients, by being knowledgeable and always accessible, and by providing practical and realistic advice that helps them deal with tax issues in an effective manner and enables them to focus on profitably growing their business. We succeed as our clients succeed."
