Sales Tax Services
Many of our clients are responsible for collecting and submitting sales taxes in many different vicinities. We can assist your company in the compilation of information and preparation of sales tax returns in an efficient and timely manner.
Financial Statements and Compilations
We can assist you in the preparation of your financial statements in accordance with professional standards. The financial statements can be a useful tool for management for making financial decisions. We view our role in the reporting process as an opportunity to provide constructive solutions for maximizing your company's profitability and efficiency. We provide compilation statements using generally accepted methods of accounting.
Compilations differ from reviews and audits as they are based upon client information provided and are used primarily for internal use only, as no opinion, or any form of assurance on the underlying information included in them.
Accounting and Controller Services
We provide our accounting and controller services to a variety of businesses and not-for-profit clients. Accounting and controller service clients may require temporary, weekly, or monthly services and varying levels of expertise in order to meet their specific accounting and reporting needs.
Growing and complex companies and organizations often find that they require basic or experienced accounting support that does not warrant the hiring of an employee. It may not be logical, cost effective or efficient to hire an employee to fulfill these needs.
Outsource your accounting to our team of experienced professionals.
Cash Flow & Budgeting Analysis
A business can be profitable and still run into trouble due to cash flow issues. We can forecast and evaluate your company's financial condition, estimate financing requirements, and track cash-flow sources and uses.
Financial Forecasts & Projections
Forecasting is a necessity when trying to effectively manage and lead a business to profitability. From simple projections to complex financial modeling, our experienced staff can assist you in achieving your company's financial goals.
We gauge our worth by the personal and business successes of our clients. We can help your business identify areas negatively affecting profitability and growth and develop solutions that are practical and technically sound. In addition to acting as a sounding board for management, we provide comprehensive, flexible strategies that address the issues affecting your business.
Buying & Selling a Business
Structuring the purchase or sale of a business properly is a critical step in the process of buying or selling a business. We have the experience to guide you through the acquisition/disposition process by addressing such issues as cash flow analysis and tax considerations.
A properly structured financial plan enables you to face any financial challenge that may present itself at each stage of your life. Through the financial planning process, we can help you assess your financial needs and develop strategies that will enable you to achieve your goals and strengthen your financial security.
Accounting Software Selection & Implementation
With the number of computerized accounting software packages available for small businesses and individuals growing every day, selecting one that is right for you has become increasingly difficult. As accounting professionals, we are exposed to most programs through trade journals and actual use. Our experienced staff can help you choose and implement the system that best fits your needs.
Whether you are thinking of buying a new business or in the midst of a difficult divorce, the amount attached to the value of your business is important. We can provide useful and objective analysis to assist you in the valuation of any business in which you have an interest.
