Our clients benefit from our years of experience and dedication to improving their business through the following key services:

 

Topics include: Accounting | Tax Prep | Bookkeeping | Budgeting | Payroll | Incorporations

 

Accounting

Imagine having all the right financial data at your fingertips so you can manage your company and make informed decisions. We guarantee that your books are accurate, and of course, within the law. We provide you the right financial information so you can grow your business.

Depending on your company's size and needs we provide the following services:

  • Controller Services
  • CFO Services
  • Quickbooks Services

 

Tax Prep

We prefer to take a proactive approach to tax services. By keeping current on tax laws and legislation, we are in a position to identify key tax planning opportunities that minimize both current and future tax liabilities. We help clients plan or deal with the tax effects of circumstances and life changes such as marriage or divorce, the birth of a child, sending a child to college, relocation to another area, starting a business, retirement, or losing a loved one.

We provide income tax preparation and planning. Let us prepare your return for you and save you the headache of finding the correct forms and figuring out the various state tax laws.

Income tax preparation and planning services are offered to individuals, corporations, partnerships, LLC's/LLP's and not-for-profit organizations.

 

Bookkeeping

As a small business owner you have more important things to do than to keep your own books. We take care of the books for you, so you can concentrate on running your business and generating profits.

Each month or quarter we'll do the following things for you:

  • Reconcile your bank account
  • Generate an Income Statement
  • Generate a Balance Sheet
  • Clean up and maintain your general ledger

These tasks form the solid foundation of your small business accounting system. You can customize the package of services you receive with sales tax, budgets and projections, cash flow management or any of our other services.

 

Budgeting

The financial goal of either families or a company is to stay within spending limits,  and for businesses - to be profitable. When you hear the word “budget”,  what do you think about?  Most people don't care for it. If you would rather do just about anything besides create a budget, you’re not alone.  The word brings up connotations of endless numbers, constraints, the opposite of freedom and creativity, and hard work, none of which are very desirable.

 The benefits of a budget are huge, though.  Budgets can help you with cash flow improvements, keep you on track for higher profits, and alert you to items that need further action. We can sit down with you and come up with a plan to help you be on track for where your spending needs to be with your revenue streams.

 

Payroll and Bill Payment

Fast, efficient and trouble-free. Our confidential, cost-effective payroll service eliminates the tedious chore of payroll processing in your office. It is a natural extension of the monthly financial reporting and tax services we provide. Allow us to help you make more profitable use of your business day by assisting with this critical but time-consuming task.

Our payroll service produces professional looking checks for your employees and all related tax agencies and other payments, along with a wide variety of available payroll reports. With our payroll service, payroll is no longer a time-consuming process. It is a smooth and outsourced function of your business! 

By using our payroll service, it gives you peace of mind knowing that we will prepare all your payroll quarterly 941's and state unemployment reports, federal and state tax deposits, federal unemployment report, and W-2's. 

 

Incorporations

Are you starting a business?  At Accounting Resources and Tax Services, our new business formation and incorporation services are designed to help you: 

  • Choose the business entity (LLC, S Corp, Partnership, Sole Proprietor, etc) that provides you with the best tax, legal liability & potential future resale or adding of other investors advantages.
  • Select the right accounting software for your budget and business type.
  • Prepare and file your application for your Federal Employer Identification No.
  • Provide payroll and payroll tax filing when you bring on your first employee.
  • Help you establish cash flow, billing, collection and cost monitoring procedures.
  • Prepare and file all required state and local licenses and permits.
  • Incorporate your business.

Business owners often come to us with previously formed corporations or Limited Liability Companies (LLC) only to find out that they were not able to take advantage of certain tax benefits these entities afford.  If you've done something similar in some cases you will pay far more taxes than you should.  Our goal is to help you make the best decisions up front so that you can minimize tax costs and maximize tax incentives as your business grows.
