TMB Tax & Financial Services Benefit Corporation Earns B Corp Certification in Recognition of Community Social Impact
Birmingham, AL, February 10, 2024 — TMB Tax & Financial Services Benefit Corporation, a tax and accounting advisory firm headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama has earned B Corp Certification after a rigorous and extensive review of its practices and policies across five pillars: governance, workers, community, environment, and customers.
TMB’s Founder & CEO, Talibah Bayles, asserts, “This certification isn’t just an accolade; it’s a reflection of our unwavering commitment to making a tangible difference. I’ve always believed that our role extends beyond providing financial services. We have a responsibility to serve as agents of change, contributing positively to the society and the environment in which we operate. For us, it’s about making a difference in the lives of our community. We’re now more focused than ever on measuring and improving our impact on society, whether it’s through our client services or community outreach and collaboration.”
Achieving an impressive B Impact Assessment score of 131.8, TMB not only surpassed the required threshold but also set a new benchmark for excellence. The upcoming April 2024 launch of Bankably™ is a testament to TMB’s innovative approach to addressing the capital access crisis faced by small businesses, particularly in marginalized communities.
“With Bankably™, our existing track record of creating a pipeline of loan-ready small businesses meets the cutting edge of technology. I am incredibly excited about this new chapter. It’s a testament to our belief that businesses can and should be a force for good. As we move forward, our commitment to social responsibility will be at the forefront of every decision we make, every service we offer, and every relationship we build,” Bayles states.
In addition to its B Corp Certification, TMB is also a public benefit corporation, which acknowledges that the business operates for both profit and to produce a public benefit and by law can consider the impact of its decisions on stakeholders.
