Financial Statement Preparation
These are vital to business, and allow you to assess your company both presently and prospectively. We provide financial statements on all three levels of assurance:
Audits involve investigation of your financial information and offer the highest level of assurance to the accuracy of the financials.
A review consists of analytical procedures applied to your financial information to provide limited assurance in the financial data.
A compilation is prepared by using the client’s information and presenting a financial statement in GAAP format. A compilation offers no assurance as to the accuracy of the financials.
Income Tax Planning and Strategies
Many businesses wait until the year is over to find out how much in taxes they will owe. Problem is, once the year is over it’s often too late to take advantage of the tax planning options that may be available to you.
We specialize in presenting effective solutions to lower your tax liability before the year is over, and strive to present our clients with a variety of options to minimize their tax bill.
