Business Continuation Planning
For many family businesses, business continuation planning is extremely important. By planning in advance, many a dollar can be retained by the business as opposed to being paid to the government. It is our plan to steer you legally through the tax laws so that your company retains more of its hard-earned dollars.
Estate & Trust Tax Preparation
Effective estate and gift planning facilitates the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, provides security for your surviving spouse, and can reduce or eliminate the tax due on the transfer of your business and other assets. For business owners, providing for business continuity and succession of ownership is essential. We can guide you through the complex process of getting your financial affairs in order.

We can assist you in the preparation of your financial statements in accordance with professional standards. Financial statements are a necessary and important tool for management when making financial and management decisions. They are also very necessary when you are applying for a loan or when proof of one’s credit-worthiness is required.
New Business Start-up
Choosing the form of entity for your business (e.g. S or C corporation, limited liability company, partnership or sole proprietorship) is a crucial decision that can have long-standing tax implications; positive or negative. We can assist you in evaluating the pros and cons of each type of entity to help you determine the most advantageous form of business for your company. Other things such as selecting a name for your business, registering with the tax authorities, preparing a business plan, or seeking financing are also important and necessary. We can help you make the best decisions with respect to your new business.
As your business grows, and you begin to hire employees, we can assist you in instituting the controls necessary to ensure reliable, efficient and accurate payroll. Until you get to the point of being able to afford your own payroll administrator, consider allowing us to take care of payroll hassles. You will know that your payroll is in the good hands of a trusted advisor who knows your business. Our high-qualify payroll service is customized for you and your business.
Prior to payday, simply tell us your employee hours. We will calculate all federal, state and local taxes, as well as voluntary deductions such as retirement plan contributions, insurance premiums and child support payments. On payday, checks will be ready to be handed out to your employees. Or, should they prefer, paychecks can be electronically deposited into employee bank accounts using our Direct Deposit service. Tax deposits, too, will be on time and accurate. We will also complete your federal and state payroll filings for you, including quarterlies, year-end and W-2 forms. No longer will you risk having to pay penalties to the IRS for late or inaccurate payments. And remember, your payroll information – employee records, past pay stubs, tax filings and records of tax payments – will be available to you at any time.
If you currently have an in-house bookkeeper/payroll administrator, we will be happy to review your current payroll system, make any necessary improvements, and provide bookkeeping and Quickbooks professional training to make certain that you have the most efficient and reliable system in place.

As we all know, there is a wide variety of bookkeeping software packages available for small businesses and individuals. While our professionals are familiar with many of them, they have found Quickbooks to be extremely reliable and user-friendly, and are fully qualified to train your staff in its use. Whether it requires two or twenty hours of instruction, our professionals will make certain that your staff is properly trained to fully utilize the system.
Successful implementation and periodic review of your financial plan will ensure financial independence during your working years and throughout your retirement years.
