Bookkeeping & Accounting

We can help with so much more than annual tax preparation. We can also provide full-service bookkeeping & accounting support to our small business clients. Our bookkeeping & accounting support ranges from business account balancing to preparing detailed monthly and/or quarterly financial statements that are often required to obtain business or personal financing.

With software programs like Quickbooks, we can not only balance your business account, but also provide you with month-to-month analyses of your business operation. This valuable information can alert you to positive trends as well as potential “trouble spots,” and can be instrumental in formulating ongoing strategies to reduce your operational costs and increase your profit margins.



Tax Preparation

Tax preparation for small businesses can be complicated and involved, and can be very different from individual tax filing. Our 16+ years of experience gives you every advantage in an industry where experience is critical. We use a state-of-the-art tax preparation system, Thomson Reuters Ultratax CS, to further ensure that we’ve covered all the bases.

We keep up-to-date on changes in the tax laws and will alert you to any issues that may have ramifications for your small business. We can assist you in filing commercial activity or sales and use tax returns, as well as provide support for you in estimated tax planning and strategies, review and amendment of prior-year returns, and representation in the event of an audit.



Bill Pay Services

As a small business owner, you may have a host of third-party vendors that you need to track and pay each month, such as office rentals, utilities, supplies, etc. It can become very time-consuming to track multiple invoice due dates and amounts, in addition to your day-to-day responsibilities as a business owner. If payments are missed or submitted late, late fees and/or cancellation of necessary services may occur. We can coordinate your bill pay needs on your behalf. We track invoice due dates, and monitor invoiced amounts to ensure consistency from month to month. If we notice anything unusual, we will notify you, and even investigate with the service provider on your behalf. We pay the vendor on your behalf, from an account that you specify.



Worry-Free Payroll

When it comes to payroll processing, our involvement can be as basic or full-service as you need it to be. Many payroll service providers simply perform data-entry based on the work hours information they receive from their clients. We use a more well-rounded approach to handle payroll preparation and timely filing of payroll tax forms for our small business clients.

Payroll tasks that we perform include:

  • Calculating retirement withholdings or remitting child support on your behalf
  • Printing and mailing of employee checks
  • Direct deposits
  • Electronically paying taxes and filing tax forms on you behalf
  • Preparing current and year-to-date reports for the business owner
  • Preparing quarterly payroll tax forms and user-friendly instructions for form completion
  • Preparing end-of-year W-2 and/or 1099 forms
  • Filing any necessary year-end reconciliation reports with each government agency
  • Payroll tax audit representation
