Tax Preparation - Today's tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even when using a computer software program you can potentially make mistakes without understanding tax law. That is where an experienced tax professional is very valuable.
Tax Planning – A good plan is the key to successfully and legally reducing your tax liability. We proactively recommend tax saving strategies to maximize your after-tax income. We continually educated ourselves in the current and new tax regulations by attending frequent tax seminars.
Tax Issues – We can help you resolve your tax problems and put an end to the stress that comes when the IRS or state taxing agency is demanding payment of back taxes. We pride ourselves on being efficient, affordable, and, of course, extremely discrete. The taxing agencies will not just go away and bankruptcy generally won’t resolve the problems either. The debt will just keep getting worse with penalties and interest being added daily.
Accounting – As a small business owner you know the importance of quality accounting. We can help you choose appropriate software or completely remove the burden of bookkeeping from you to give you more time to sell your product or services. We educate our clients, if necessary, to fully understand their financial reports, to manage their business more effectively.
Planning – Business planning is often necessary to obtain financing. But strategic planning does more than that. Preparing a strategic plan helps you clarify your company's direction, ensures your key leaders are all "on the same page", and keeps both management and staff focused on the tasks at hand. A Strategic Plan provides a blueprint, describing your company, its products, the competitive environment, management team, financial health, and business risks.
Non-profit organizations — Most tax-exempt organizations are required to submit the Form 990 as well as certain accounting records such as: an Income Statement with very specific revenue and expense categories like donations, salaries, etc. and a Balance Sheet, and more. The IRS uses very specific revenue and expense classifications to determine if your organization will retain its tax-exempt status. Even though religious organizations generally are not required to file tax returns, certain circumstances may require it. We also help churches and clergy deal with pastoral housing allowance and other required benefits documentation to meet the complex dual status of clergy.
Software Setup – Although most small business accounting software is designed for the layman to understand, the initial setup and installation must be done correctly in order for future information to be accurate. We can help you get started right with your computerized accounting system, often saving you future costs and stress trying to correct inaccurate books.
Software Training – Why might you want to choose one-on-one training rather than classes? Convenience… we come to you! Targeted Help… we can focus on your specific accounting issues and questions, not going through options your company does not use or need.
Bookkeeping Tune-up – In just a few hours we can help you clean up and organize your books. We will show you how to review your transactions, clean up mistaken entries, customize reports, balance accounts and supply personalized training. Having accurate books saves you money and helps to make wise business decisions.
