Why do I need an accountant?
As the saying goes “Behind every successful business is a great accountant.”
Accountants can be tremendously helpful in working with you to structure your business as best as possible, putting together a plan for the future to help you take advantage of tax breaks in the coming year, and being there for you if you encounter problems down the road.
It is a well-known fact that your accountant has the ability to either directly or indirectly influence the success of your business. That is why we feel it is important and valuable to have a long-term personal relationship with our clients. We want to be part of your success by getting to know you and your business on an individual basis. We have a passion for entrepreneurship and are ready to help you in whatever way we can. We take the form of another business advisor or partner, giving advice on strategic planning, management and tax issues. By meeting with one of our accountants, asking for advice before taking action, and having accurate up to date books, we are able to help you make well informed decisions, predict cash flow, see where you have been and what direction you are going and what actions need to be taken.
Why outsource my accounting department?
By letting the accounting professionals do what they do best and more efficiently, you can focus on your business and what you do best. For every hour you spend doing bookkeeping, you are losing valuable time and money. Outsourcing will free up your time to focus on other aspects of growing your business.
You will be able to make better informed decisions based on fact and not on just the cash balance in your bank account.
We are always here, we don’t call in sick, we don’t quit and we don’t need to be trained!
We will take the stress and worry out of the bookkeeping part of your business by keeping your books up to date and provide accurate reports to help you make better business decisions.

How does better accounting affect my bottom line?
You need to know your numbers. Many small- and mid-size businesses fail to adequately measure and manage their finances, even though poor financial management is a major cause of business failure. If you don’t have good financial practices in place, your business could suffer in a number of ways, including lost revenue, insufficient tax planning, and missed financial opportunities. A great monthly accounting service will handle your profit and loss statements, monthly balance sheets, and regular account reconciliation to help you take back control of your finances without much effort on your part.
