About Us




Postgate & Company was established in July 1977 when Bob Postgate, after years of practicing as a CPA specializing in tax matters, decided to create his own accounting firm. The firm grew rapidly and by 1990 was the twelfth largest professional accounting firm in the Rochester area with nine CPAs and 20 total employees.

Today, our firm is dedicated to a smaller but select group of clients, permitting us to interact with each client on a personal one-on-one basis. Bob's extensive tax background and his time spent managing the firm's audit practice, enables him to address a broad array of client concerns.

Over the years we have developed sub-specialties in such areas as estates and trusts, including charitable remainder trusts, and business valuations. Bob personally handles these engagements and is actively involved in all client work from basic tax preparation and financial statement compilations to sophisticated long-range business planning.

We are a small but agile professional services firm, enlisting the strengths of Bob Postgate, a few dedicated colleagues and our strong outside affiliations, to help our clients in areas well beyond typical accounting.

Through our affiliations, we are able to provide state-of-the-art personal financial planning, including advice related to life and other insurance needs, college funding, mutual funds and other investments, planning for retirement and dealing with estate tax issues.

We welcome you to contact us to discuss our mutual suitability.
