Who We Are

Belk And Associates Team Photo

In 1998, Belk & Associates was founded by Joshua Belk as a small tax preparation office. Word quickly spread about Josh’s skill and knowledge, and soon the business grew to providing tax and financial statement preparation services for clients throughout the greater Chicagoland area.

As the company continued to grow through the years, Josh was able to turn the focus of Belk & Associates from families and small family businesses to local corporate clients with small to medium-sized businesses. Belk & Associates began providing more services and began hiring additional staff and providing additional accounting and business-related services.

Today, Belk & Associates provides services that range from business consulting, tax planning and preparation, bookkeeping services, and more.

Belk & Associates now helps small to medium size businesses better prepare their company by solving today’s problems while planning and preparing for the future. We use a holistic approach while viewing the big picture in an effort to direct business owners in managing and scaling their business. So whether you are a smaller business needing to know your numbers and understand your financial picture or a larger, well-established business with a desire to maximize profits, the Belk & Associates team can partner with you to assist you in reaching your goals.
