Entity Selection and Restructuring
The entity you choose to structure your business depends on multiple factors and impacts your taxes and other liabilities. If you haven’t started your business yet, we’ll work with you on initial structuring that will be most beneficial to you. If you are already established, we may have suggestions for restructuring that would work to your advantage. Whether your questions are about business or personal taxes, we’ll not only guide you through the process, but will explain the pros and cons of each potential option, always with your best interest in mind.
QuickBooks Accounting Help and Assistance
QuickBooks has quite successfully become the industry standard. While it can seem so helpful and exciting for a new or small business, the truth is that it’s a complex software for those who look to get the most value out of its implementation. For that reason, we’ll help you choose the right version of the software for you, install it throughout your organization, setup a multitude of options, capture and process your company’s data, and teach/support you and your business until you are QuickBooks experts yourselves.
When you are a new or small business, it’s likely you have someone who is multi-tasking and “handling” the books. When you have the staff to perform daily accounting activities and payroll tasks but need an accounting professional to review their work, we’re ready to help. This review ensures that you are receiving the most pertinent information so that you can make the best decisions about the growth of your business. When we perform accounting reviews, we work with your staff to make corrections, adjustments, and reclassifications to ensure that your financial reporting reflects the correct financial condition of your organization.
Financial Support for Established Business
To state the facts frankly is not to despair the future nor indict the past.
Cash Flow and Budgeting Analysis
To grow an established business, one requires top-level cash management, lower expenses and overhead, and an increase in productivity and sales.

We’ll work with you to analyze your spending, review your budgets, and manage debt to create a positive cash flow and cement your business’s future.

Of course business would be much easier if one could predict the future. Unfortunately, we can only offer the next best thing. We use historical data, industry trends, and personal research to produce the most sound financial forecasts possible. With our expertise, education, and experience, as well as the gained knowledge of your business, we produce financial projections that allow you to best make decisions about growth, markets, spending, debt management, and more. It’s essential to your company’s success.
Depending on your needs, our work can range from top-level overview reports to detailed financial models.
You’ll find that as your company grows, some internal control processes will naturally develop and be implemented accordingly. With that, there are usually gaps that need to be filled in with a more formal control plan that is designed to address all the current and reasonable future needs of your business. We work with you to both correct your existing control processes and create the ones that you have missed or may soon need to further develop your business. Having worked with all levels of businesses, we know the challenges ahead for both the small- and medium-sized organizations, as well as top-tier international companies. By implementing the proper controls, one creates a bulletproof system that will resolve control weaknesses.

Professional representation is essential during an audit, and our experience with tax authorities enables us to guide clients in their dealings with federal and state agencies.
