Bacogroup
Ford Baker, CPA, has over 35 years of experience in the public accounting industry, with over 20 of experience running a firm, BaCo Group, PLLC. In that role, Ford always sought to improve the efficiency of his firm through technology and forward-thinking. His passion was built out of a unique backstory; in 2012, he weighed almost 400 pounds, but by 2014 he had changed his life and rode a bicycle from Canada to Mexico down the Pacific Coast Highway. He had a passion and focus on eliminating the clutter in his practice that created the 400-pound version of himself that he did not want to see return. Ultimately, Ford developed an in-house transaction-based workflow using Excel and various other off-the-shelf utilities that gather data and work with data more real-time. This workflow concept can change the industry from a reactive service from putting last year’s balances on last year’s returns to proactive services, teaching clients the impact of this year’s numbers on their business, its exit value, and next year’s tax bill, today.

About Us: BaCo Group, PLLC is a full service, boutique-style, accounting, tax and attestation firm that partners with entrepreneurs and owners to provide high-quality service. It provides a full range of tax planning and preparation services, accounting consulting and attestation services, outsourced ‘CFO’ related services, and more. BaCo Group utilizes a patent-pending process that seamlessly integrates client accounting records into our workflow. That integration allows us to provide automated and consolidated online financial reporting, and eliminate redundancies on a readily available command center. We see the relationship between a business and its accountant as a partnership. We achieve this relationship in many ways, first and foremost, by working side by side with our clients throughout the year instead of a reactionary basis.
