Local Business News: Tipton, Marler, Garner & Chastain To Merge with Randolph McInvale Accounting

North Florida residents and businesses will benefit from enhanced capabilities and service this tax season

Panama City, FL (December 10, 2018) – Representatives from Tipton, Marler, Garner & Chastain and Randolph McInvale Accounting announced this week that the two companies will be merging before the new year. 

Both firms have served Northwest Florida for over 40 years. As local businesses and residents prepare for the tax filing season of 2019, the combined team offers more capabilities and client service. This is significant given that major tax law changes will affect almost every taxpayer next year. 

“We welcome the opportunity to join forces with Randy and his clients, especially as the tax season picks up,” said David Tipton, President at Tipton, Marler, Garner & Chastain. “Our community is recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Michael. We are stronger together and working hard at restoration. As we enter the new year our client’s financial health and well-being is our utmost priority.” 

“Sometimes an event like Hurricane Michael provides clear direction for the future,” said Randolph McInvale. “This is a highly capable team of professionals. Moving forward together we will help clients thrive in their financial journey.” 

The new company, and expanded capabilities, will take effect immediately at Tipton, Marker, Garner & Chastain’s Panama City Beach office.

The firm provides financial services that include auditing, accounting, management consulting, corporate and individual tax planning and preparation, business valuation, litigation support, financial and estate planning and computer systems consulting and evaluation.
