There is something uniquely rewarding about having an idea, turning it into a business, and making it grow. Nothing about being a small business owner is easy, but the payoff is worth it.
My bread and butter has always been working with small business owners and entrepreneurs. Running a business is challenging, and I find that business owners really appreciate it when they have a CPA who cares about their success and can act as a trusted adviser. Whether you are just starting out, thinking about hiring that first employee, trying to figure out how to supercharge your growth, or thinking about selling your business, I can help you succeed.
Here are specific ways that I can help small business owners:
- Choosing the right structure for your business. Is it better to operate as a sole proprietorship, to setup an LLC, to operate as a C-Corporation, or to form an S-Corporation? What about a partnership? I can work with you as a small business owner to choose the best structure for your business.
- Preparing your business tax returns, and keeping your taxes to their legal minimum. There are many strategies for minimizing your Federal, State, and local taxes, and some of them can be quite sophisticated. Working with a CPA who specializes in working with small business can literally save you thousands of dollars in taxes.
- Consulting with you on big business decisions. Are you thinking about hiring a new employee, buying a new truck or piece of equipment, or starting a new service line? Having a CPA to talk through these decisions with can be extremely valuable.
- Getting your accounting up to speed. As a business owner, you are required by the Internal Revenue Service to maintain accurate books and records. If your Quickbooks are a mess, I can help you with that. If you want to outsource your accounting so you don’t have to worry about it anymore, I can help you with that too.
- Dealing with IRS audits, liens, garnishments, FTB notices, EDD issues, or filing back tax returns. When you’re running a small business, stuff happens! You just need to have a relationship with someone who can help you deal with it.
The bottom line is that if you are a small business owner, you should have a relationship with a CPA who cares about you and wants to help you be successful. I want to be that person for you.
