Berman Hopkins CPAs & Associates has been recognized as a 2022 IPA 300 Firm and 2022 IPA 300 Fastest-Growing Firm by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA). Based on the 2022 annual INSIDE Public Accounting Survey and Analysis of Firms, we are ranked #272 in the nation and our organic growth increased 23.8 percent.


Equipped for It All

For the past 65 years, Berman Hopkins’ relative size, length of time within the community, and reputation have provided clients with the essential advice and necessary resources to support the ongoing needs of their business. We build value-added relationships with each client to understand their business structure to provide solid solutions, and our approach offers clients direct access to the firm's decision-makers.


We are one of the largest independently owned CPA firms in Central Florida, with offices in Melbourne and Orlando to accommodate our clients throughout the region. Our 12 partners and staff are highly qualified with the education and experience to support our clients with outstanding accounting and financial services.


We accept clients only in the areas where we are proficient, and we are not "everyone’s" CPA firm. This mentality has been a critical change in our business model and has enabled our team to focus on being more than just a compliance-oriented firm. We offer support in construction, manufacturing, real estate, government contractors, government entity, public housing authorities, non-profits, and SEC industries.


Our firm specializes in assurance, audits, reviews, compilations, tax planning, tax compliance, international taxation, tax mergers and acquisition, business advisory, business valuations, forensic accounting, litigation support, IRS negotiations and controversies, succession planning, ESOPs, and consulting on other significant industry matters.


Earning Outstanding Status

When naming the best and fastest-growing firms, IPA is meticulous.


The one-of-a-kind IPA 500, recognizing top U.S.-based accounting firms, is the most comprehensive list of North American public accounting firms available. IPA ranks public accounting firms in the U.S. based on participating firms’ net revenues, from the multibillion-dollar U.S.-based Big 4 to the $3.8 million firm. Ranking data is captured through IPA’s annual practice management survey and analysis of firms. IPA is the survey leader in data collection for the profession, with more of the largest 600 firms participating than any other survey today and a 92 percent return rate of participating firms.


Each year, IPA identifies the fastest-growing firms based on reported organic growth in net revenue without the influence of mergers. While growth with mergers represents true growth, isolating organic growth provides insight into the strength of the growth engine of the firms.


“We are honored to be recognized as a 2022 Top 300 Firm and Fastest-Growing firm by IPA,” said Chris McDirmit, Managing Partner. “We attribute our success to adding value for our clients wherever possible by providing a comprehensive view of the surrounding business environment, challenges, and opportunities.”


By securing a spot in IPA’s 2022 Top 300 firms and 300 Fastest-Growing Firms, Berman Hopkins continues to distinguish itself as one of the most capable, robust, and high-quality accounting firms.
