FA Bean Counters (FABC), an XY Planning Network company, is a bookkeeping and accounting service that works solely with financial advisors. We understand the ins and outs of bookkeeping for a financial advisory practice. FA Bean Counters was created to take a very important, non-revenue generating activity off small business owners’ plates, allowing them to focus on what they do best: working with clients.
XY Planning Network (XYPN) is the leading organization for fee-only financial advisors who want to serve their Gen X and Gen Y peers, providing comprehensive financial planning services for a monthly subscription fee and without product sales or asset minimums. The Network offers a virtual community for new and established financial advisors who want to serve a younger clientele, and provides its members compliance support services, marketing support, business tools and templates, and a wide range of technology solutions.
XYPN was nationally recognized as one of The 346 Best Places to Work in 2019 by Inc. magazine. In 2018, we earned the top ranking of Fastest-Growing Private Company in Montana, and the 168th fastest-growing privately-owned business in the US, by Inc. magazine. This is an opportunity to join a rapidly growing company that is reshaping the financial services industry.
As the Director of Tax at FABC, you will develop, manage and lead our taxation service line. You will be working directly with financial advisors and their clients in tax services including tax preparation, planning, research, and compliance. You will be responsible for managing the tax return preparation of individual, corporate, partnership, and other entity returns with minimal supervision and will be responsible for resolving most tax issues. In addition, you will lead, manage, and hold a team of tax professionals accountable for achieving accurate and timely results.
We launched a beta version in the 2018 tax season of a white labeled tax preparation offering for our financial advisor members to provide to their clients. This position will be responsible with hiring and training tax preparers, and helping us scale this high-growth business line. If you have always wanted to build a tax practice the right way, but have been held back by legacy systems and thought processes, then this blank slate will be your ideal sandbox.
Effectively problem-solve and resolve issues that arise amongst the service line. Must be comfortable with conflict, addressing issues, and solving problems in a practical and healthy manner in a rapidly growing business.
