Firm Overview

BRAYN Consulting LLC is a fast-growing consulting firm that supports CPA firms and their clients in taking full advantage of specialty tax credits and incentives.

This allows our partners and staff to experience a penumbra of issues, challenges and opportunities different than those afforded by Big-4 or Top 10 Accounting Firms.
