At our firm, we have the client—and only the client—in mind.

We started Bender Financial Solutions to offer customized financial planning and accounting solutions for businesses and professionals. Experience makes a difference, and that’s a big part of what makes Bender Financial Solutions a full-service provider with services that can expand as your business continues to grow.

Leveraging decades of financial services experience and a family legacy of helping business owners dating back to 1954, we saw a way to assist businesses more directly than ever before by building customized solutions. 

As an independent accounting and tax planning firm, we’re better able to craft tax-focused strategies designed to protect earnings while also providing other key support services. 

We also specialize in insurance and investment strategies, helping to safeguard the success you’ve built while focusing on the next goals.

Put our experience to work for your business to build a scalable financial strategy tailored to your needs and goals.
