About Bandy & Associates

A Lifetime of Experience and Knowledge

Our mission is to provide individuals and business owners with relief from anxiety by helping them find success while navigating the complex financial world of the 21st Century.

Helping people has always been a passion of Dan Bandy, president of Bandy & Associates. It is not by accident that helping individuals and business owners with modern accounting principles and practices is a hallmark of his accountancy corporation.

For more than 30 years, Dan has attempted to provide understanding and compassion to a service that is very structured and sometimes seems unforgiving. Whether working with an individual, or small, medium or large business, Dan’s philosophy always has been to respect clients and treat them as family. That philosophy permeates Bandy & Associates with each team member dedicated to serving the best interest of the client.

A native of the San Joaquin Valley, Dan began his career in 1984 with Touche Ross, an international accounting firm. In 1990, he joined a partner to create a new firm, Ball & Bandy, and in 2005 he formed his own company, Bandy & Associates.

Bandy & Associates began with six associates and has doubled over the past decade. During those years, Bandy & Associates also has grown to serve a variety of businesses of many sizes while offering a comprehensive list of services in the areas of accounting, tax, payroll and consulting.
