A business with organized
accounting records or a business owner who is detailed
oriented that seeks assistance in becoming more
organized. A business owner who is a smart
independent self-starter that understands that the
unknown needs research. A business owner who is
willing to put the time and effort into training,
software and guidance.
Operating on your own without the
skills of a financial expert, is like building a house
without the help of an architect or a building
inspector to see if the structure is sound. Not
recognizing or understanding the meaning of your
numbers (balance sheet and income statement) will
ultimately result in mistakes and possibly audit.
While computerized business
accounting systems make it easy for data entry, most
small business owners do not have the experience to
make the correct decisions when preparing taxes.
Mistakes or poor choices impact directly the amount of
taxes that you pay or the red flags you raise with the
IRS. While most
are able to justify every business dollar
deducted, no one has time to sit with the IRS producing
receipts and fending off interrogations!
If your eyes have not glazed over
yet, we can help! With
the proper training, income taxes become as routine as
payroll taxes or filling out a building permit!
