About Us

CBAS is a boutique employee benefits consulting practice providing a wide range of business, tax, and accounting services to a broad range of employers (public and private companies and tax exempt organizations across every industry on a national basis). CBAS is committed to offering a top-notch client service delivery model based on the expertise, guiding principles and ethics of its President and Founder, David Chang. David has almost 25 years of intensive, relevant experience from working with two of the Big Four Accounting firms, a Fortune 100 company, and a boutique tax and executive compensation consulting practice.

 

We are dedicated to serving our clients as trusted business advisors and our goal is to create the best value for them by:

 

Creating customized solutions (new value)

 

Our services are derived from previously successful projects and then customized to each clients unique situation.  When the situation arises, we have the knowledge, creativity and ingenuity to create brand new solutions.

 

Offering low pricing (more value)

 

The vast majority of our engagements are billed on a standard rate per hour basis.  We offer rates of up to 20% - 60% less than our competitors and can generally complete projects in less time.

 

Fixed fee and maximum cap arrangements may also be available for certain types of engagements.

 

Ensuring the highest quality (better value)

 

We use proven solutions and methodologies that have been enhanced over time as the foundation of our services.  Our professionals use these tools and resources in combination with their subject matter expertise and all relevant skills and characteristics to bring you a unique client service experience. 

Choosing the right consulting firm and/or the right consultant is critical.  Your consultant should have:

 

  1. Unimpeachable Character

  2. Solid Experiences

  3. Creative Problem-Solving Skills

  4. Outstanding Communication Skills

  5. Excellent Interpersonal Skills

However, making meaningful distinctions between candidates can be extremely difficult. The qualifications of professionals with equivalent number of years of experience with similar employers can appear to be relatively equal on the surface, and only an in-depth review of the consultants' career accomplishments will set them apart and allow you to determine if they meet all of the requirements above.
