Financing for Certified Public Accountants
Where do you want to take your CPA practice?
Borrowing funds can help CPA practices pursue profitable opportunities throughout their life cycles, without draining liquidity or diluting equity. Whether you’re maturing by automating client services, contemplating growth by expanding to new specialties or acquiring another practice, or restructuring business debt, you may need capital to meet your goals.
Since 2003, financial services industry professionals have benefited from hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from Oak Street Funding, a direct, non-SBA lender. We help businesses succeed throughout their life cycles – from initial growth through the development stages and eventual divestiture of your firm. For us, it really is about relationships and not transactions.
Our borrowers appreciate that we understand their unique needs and business goals. They also like that we own and manage their loan throughout its life cycle, and they only deal with us. What’s more, we have the speed and flexibility of an entrepreneurial specialty lender with the financial backing of a bank. As a result, many of our customers have returned for multiple rounds of funding.

“Oak Street Funding has financed two loans for me, and we were able to close both within 30 days. I was very happy with the level of customer service provided by the team, and I received frequent updates regarding my loan status. I would definitely recommend Oak Street to others, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
