Many small businesses over pay their taxes because they do not have a proactive CPA and they do not take advantage of all the tax incentives available to them. Our objective here is to save you more in taxes than our overall fees through identifying ideas and strategies which may save you money in taxes. Our goal is to proactively perform year-round tax planning and coordination at the entity/business level and at the individual level throughout the year–and to advise you of any new tax laws which may affect your business. When was the last time your tax pro came to you and said “here’s an idea I think will save you some money?”
You will likely have accounting questions throughout the year as various transactions arise. Our service includes accounting support year-round to help you ensure that you are properly recording your transactions from an accounting perspective.

Our service will enable you to track your Income Statement/Profit & Loss and your Balance Sheet. We will also help you interpret the numbers so you can actually use your financials to understand, operate, and improve your business.
We provide small businesses financial leadership as your business’s Chief Financial Officer to help you increase revenue and profits. In this way, we transcend traditional accounting services to provide you with ongoing strategic advice.

We fill this gap to provide businesses with the financial advice they need in an outsourced model which can be done part-time at a fraction of the cost. We partner with you and become a member of your management team to help you achieve your business goals, faster.

In our experience, without professional guidance, QuickBooks has the potential to make clients “dangerous.” QuickBooks must be setup properly and maintained properly on an ongoing basis in order to accrue benefits from the software. Otherwise, “QuickBooks” can quickly turn into “QuickMess.” Since the integrity of your financial statements from QuickBooks impact both your tax planning and tax returns, it becomes extremely important to ensure your Books are in good shape. Our service includes ongoing year-round QuickBooks consulting and periodic QuickBooks “health checkups” to help you manage your internal accounting system.
