Robert Baral, CPA is one of the innovators in the outsourced accounting field.  In 1980, Bob started R.C.

Baral has served clients such as Walt Disney, GE/Universal, Time Warner/Warner Brothers, Fox, and many others. Bob was also the co-founder of IQ Backoffice, a leading outsource & accounting firm that specialized in high volume accounts payable and full cycle accounting for restaurant & hotels, manufacturing & pharmaceutical, dental, banking & insurance, legal, and REITs.

The company was sold to the largest corporation in the Philippines.
