It all started in 1980 with an empty file cabinet, a desk and a savvy businessman named Lou Grassi, who possessed a keen insight into the necessary components of success. After more than a quarter century, Grassi & Co. is now one of the nation’s elite accounting firms. Ranked by Crain’s New York Business as the 23rd largest accounting firm in New York and by Long Island Business News as the 7th largest on Long Island, we are a full-service tax, accounting, and business advisory firm. Headquartered in Manhattan, NY, we also have an office on Long Island.
At Grassi & Co., we provide more than traditional accounting, auditing and tax services. We thrive on solving problems, reducing tax liabilities, easing the financial audit process, managing and planning for growth, and preparing for the future. We have been recognized nationally as one of the Best Accounting Firms to Work For by Accounting Today, named one of the Best Places to Work for 2011 for the 5th year in a row by Long Island Business News, and have been ranked among the Top 25 “Best of the Best Firms” by INSIDE Public Accounting for five consecutive years.
