Kevin Jacobson, CPASenior Manager

    Kevin has over 14 years of accounting, auditing, and consulting experience. Kevin’s strength is working with technology companies (including software-as-a-service, software, internet-based and hardware) to assist them with areas of complex technical accounting, audit preparation and facilitation, SEC reporting, IPO preparedness, and with key transitional projects such as the new revenue (ASC 606) and lease guidance (ASC 842).

    Kevin enjoys being a valuable technical resource for companies needing to bridge the gap between their current workforce and their accounting demands. He has also built key relationships with a number of audit teams from the Big Four accounting firms.  As a former auditor, he has experience with the audit and review process, as well as the level of diligence required which he is able to leverage with his clients to help “get it done.”

    Kevin’s recent projects include assisting technology-based companies during the IPO process, including the preparation of quarterly financial reporting packages, facilitation of the quarterly reviews with auditors, drafting the S-1 filing, and assisting in the SEC comment response process. In addition, Kevin has assisted a number of companies with revenue recognition, specifically those under multiple-element and software revenue guidance.  These revenue projects have ranged from smaller reviews of a company’s current policies and support papers to in-depth contract-by-contract reviews and recasts, as well as projects focused on preparation for the new revenue recognition guidance.

    Prior to joining ARC Consulting, Kevin was an audit manager in public accounting where he led financial statement audit engagements for both public and private companies, as well as consulted with various national audit teams on technical accounting areas.
