Ensures Your Small Business Bookkeeping is Properly Done and Acceptable to Your CPA or Tax Preparer

No matter how skilled your CPA is, if your bookkeeping is deficient, your tax return will be compromised. Your CPA can’t go beyond the information submitted by your bookkeeper, and your CPA is prevented by law from making up data your bookkeeper missed.

We know how to coordinate with your CPA at their level. For example, we have the small business bookkeeping experience in QuickBooks to correctly determine the following issues:

  • Which QuickBooks and bookkeeping issues may affect your taxes by tax entity (S or C corporation, LLC, etc.)
