About us

Founded for the Benefit of Fox Valley Small Business

Headquartered in Yorkville, Illinois, Bailey Accounting & Co was formed by managing partner James Bailey, E.A., as a full-service tax agency for the southern Fox Valley’s small-business community and individual taxpayers.

The firm supports the region’s business leaders and entrepreneurs with astute skill and knowledge in tax and accounting service, QuickBooks and CFO-level assistance. Bailey Accounting & Co is more than a distinguished resource for income tax preparation: We are long-term partner and asset for business growth and opportunity.

Among corporate clients, James is known as the “go-to” accountant for guidance in vital business concerns from cash flow to entity formation. His experience spans diverse industries and focuses particularly on financial, consulting and professional services, construction and real estate.

For business and individual tax clients, James creates an income tax projection with an in-depth review and tax analysis for their financial objectives. The analysis provides clients with acute insight into where their business or personal assets stand at risk today while helping to prevent losses tomorrow. Its design further assists clients in paying the least amount of taxes required by law.

Before founding Bailey Accounting & Co, James served as a corporate accountant working with process and profit improvement, financial reporting, taxes, budgeting and public company–disclosure work.

Committed to the community, James supports the local Chamber of Commerce and volunteers with different non-profits and advocacy groups. He is a member of the National Association of Tax Professionals as well as a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor.

He graduated from Aurora University with a B.A. in Accounting and earned his Enrolled Agent designation in 2017.

We welcome relationships and invite conversation. To learn more about James and the firm, as well as how it can support your financial interests, call us at (630) 551-8307.
