If you own a small business and haven't kept up your bookkeeping, don't worry.  We can help you.  We will prepare your accounting for the year, prepare a full schedule C, as well as your personal income tax returns.  Then we'll help you set up an easy system that allows you to keep your books in tip-top shape next year.

Business Planning & Support Services

A business plan is much more than a tool to obtain financing.  If you still have all you plans and ideas locked up inside your head… preparing a business plan helps you clarify your company's direction, ensures your key leaders are all "on the same page", and keeps both management and staff focused on the tasks at hand.  For those business owners who are not yet incorporated, we offer tax planning assistance to reduce your overall tax burden.  I also assist in incorporating your business, and design a tax strategy specifically for your needs.
