QuickBooks Accounting Help and Assistance

QuickBooks accounting software is perfect for small businesses because it allows you to manage all your financial information in one convenient place.

We can help with everything from choosing the appropriate version, installation of the software, company setup, training, operations/ software support and review/ clean-up of the company data. Our QuickBooks review service helps clients that have the human resources to perform daily accounting and payroll tasks, but need an accounting/payroll expert to review your transactions, reconcile bank accounts and fill in any other gaps. This review ensures that the data that you are pulling from your software is accurate. We also inform you of any corrections, adjustments or reclassifications necessary and bring to your attention any fluctuations or necessary actions. Reviews may be done at any duration, but monthly reviews provide you with the most up-to-date information and feedback about your business.


Estimated taxes may need to be paid when you have income that is not subject to withholding. In many cases those that are self-employed or have investment income from dividends, capital gains and/or interest are responsible for remitting tax through quarterly estimated payments. 


The IRS has guidelines on what would make an individual an employee versus a contractor. There are major differences between what would qualify individuals to be W-2 employees or 1099 contractors and in how their payments are processed. Misclassifying your workers can lead to tax liabilities and penalties. 


The structure of your business impacts everything from the type of business tax return you file to the taxes you pay and your liability if someone sues your business. There is no one “right” structure for every business, and the right one for you might change as your business changes. A CPA can provide valuable perspective on whether another structure better suits your long-term growth goals.

IRS and State guidelines change often. CPAs stay up to date on upcoming changes so they can understand how they might impact your business and help you plan accordingly. 


A payroll service is usually beneficial for employers who value their time and want to ensure that their employees and taxes are paid accurately and timely.  Processing payroll requires filing tax forms and remitting payment to multiple jurisdictions that often have different due dates. In some cases, busy business owners may save money when they consider that a payroll service provider can help them eliminate costly tax penalties that can result from untimely tax payments and filings.


As a new business owner, you will want to engage a CPA to gain an understanding of which taxes you may owe, how they are calculated, and when they are due. Some of the potential taxes one could owe are corporate income tax, personal income tax, payroll taxes, sales tax, use tax, excise tax, self-employment tax, etc.
