I am working with this company for the last 7 years. Before that, I was a customer of many more prominent organizations, and I was very upset about how they treated me. However, I had to stay with those accountants until I find someone whom I could trust. When I saw Mr. Campanella for the first time, I was amazed by his depth of knowledge about our business in general. I asked him questions that over the time I learned myself and the other firm did not have any idea about it, and Fabio Campanella knew them by heart. I highly recommend this company. More...

I recently started up a new business and was overwhelmed with the back end of things. Read great reviews online and sent an email with a few inquiries. John Paul took the time to talk me into the right direction, even though I’m not a client of the firm. A little kindness goes a long way. Thank you so much!You’ll definitely be hearing from me in the near future. More...

I can't say enough nice things about Campanella McDonald LLP! I emailed John Paul about back taxes for a number of rental properties and within an hour I had a call with him and a plan of attack. This was on a Tuesday, by Friday of the same week the taxes were filed! He's fantastic to work with - patient, responsive and an excellent communicator. He really took the time to make sure that I understood the filings. And, in addition to dealing with the back taxes, he also helped me understand a number of future tax related issues. I highly recommend the Campanella McDonald team! More...

I would highly recommend both Fabio and John Paul to anyone who owns their own business. They are both incredibly responsive and very knowledgeable. They both bring so much to the table and have acted not only as our accountants but have also offered their experience and advice for corporate and strategic decisions. We have worked with a number of their staff who are all fantastic to work with. We look forward to working with them for many years to come. More...

In 2015 we approached Fabio to help us design a business plan to build a new fitness center in Cancun, Mexico. He helped us put together a solid plan, raise 7-figures in debt and equity financing, developed a risk management strategy and provided invaluable guidance in dealing with our financiers, equity investors, lawyers, insurance brokers and Mexican tax accountants. He also helped us choose and appoint a CFO and has assisted with our external financial reporting. Since then we have built 4 large locations across Mexico and are in direct plans to develop an additional 5. Great work and highly recommended to anyone who is looking for business advisory services.
