Harry Lin, CPA, a Professional Corporation, was founded in City of Industry, California in 1991 by Mr. Harry C. Lin and other former partners to provide accounting, tax, and management advisory and consulting services. In the last 10 years, the firm has expanded rapidly in terms of number of clients and the professional fields it serves. Nowadays the firm has had a substantial presence in southern California, especially within the ethnic Chinese business communities, and is known for its expertise in hospitality, rental real estate, professional services, manufacturing, import export, and distribution industries. In addition to the target market of mid-size to small businesses, the firm also provides various financial and tax services to certain high net-worth individuals and non-for profit organizations.

We at Harry C. Lin, CPA provide a wide range of professional services, including:

Accounting & Auditing

We perform accounting services, such as compilation, review, and audit of financial statements. We also provide support for management in the preparation of internal financial statements. We also perform various agreed-upon procedures to help our clients cope with business decisions, including acquisition and disposition due diligence and audit of elements of financial statements.

All of our audit clients are subsidiaries of major companies in Taiwan, most of which are publicly traded companies or companies in the process of initial public offering. Through the coordinated worldwide audit engagements with auditors of our clientsĦĤ parent companies over the last few years, we have also developed liaison relationships with several Big Five accounting firms in Taiwan.

While our compilation clients are spread all over various business disciplines, our review and audit clients are concentrated in the following areas:

The strength lies particularly in real estate partnership/LLC taxation and international taxation.
