Beard Miller Company LLP (bmc), a legacy firm of ParenteBeard LLC, was an accounting and auditing firm serving clients mainly in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. The firm was created through a series of mergers, the largest occurring in January 2001 between Beard & Company and Miller & Company.[1] Prior to merging with Parente Randolph in October 2009, bmc had 16 offices located in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and New York, and more than 600 employees. bmc was a member of the larger BDO Seidman Alliance, which enables Accounting and Consulting organizations other than the "Big 4 auditors" to share resources which may be otherwise unattainable. The CEO of bmc was Lamar Stoltzfus, who is now chairman of ParenteBeard.


Though the firm’s legal name was Beard Miller Company, the firm elected to use its initials in lower case (bmc) in day-to-day operations. The firm also used numbers in the place of letters when advertising the brand’s image, a form of "rebus". For instance, the word “vision”, which appeared prominently in the company’s literature, is spelled out V1510N.


bmc provided the following services: Audit (including IT Audit and Employee Benefits), Tax Consulting and Form Preparation, and Business Consulting. The firm also had a sister organization, bmc Financial Advisors, which, while technically a separate entity, worked closely with the larger accounting organization.
