CPA-Level Expertise

How You Benefit from Over 25 Years of CPA-level Expertise

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

With us, you'll get a professional result because we've got a track record of over 25 years of CPA firm training and experience.  We know how to coordinate with your CPA at their level.  For example, we know:


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

  • What questions to ask your CPA about any unique tax issues affecting your bookkeeping,

  • What degree of detail your CPA prefers in your chart of accounts,

  • How to set up your books according to your CPA's preferences, including:

    • Whether to segregate owner compensation and fringes for health care professionals,

    • Whether to establish job costing, what costs to track and how to allocate overhead,

    • How to format reports for tracking gross profit by project,

    • How to establish the equity section of the balance sheet to show owners' draws and equity investment,

  • How your CPA prefers to track unique or industry-specific income or expenses,

  • How to close out the books at the end of the tax year, including:

    • Proper reconciliation of all checking, savings and money  market accounts,

    • Determination of ending balances for loans and lines of credit,

    • Reconciliation of inter-company balances between related entities,

    • Analysis, review and adjustment of shareholder, member or partner loan accounts,

    • Reconciliation of accounts receivable and payable,

    • Accruals of expenses for accrual-basis entities,

    • Analysis and adjustment of customer deposits, unearned income or gift certificates,

    • Analysis and adjustment of fixed assets and accumulated depreciation,

  • How to categorize your transactions for maximum tax savings, including:

    • How to track ownership perquisites, including health care premiums or medical expense reimbursements,

    • Whether to classify health insurance premiums as salary for owners of pass-through entities,

    • How your CPA wants to track auto, business meals and entertainment expenses,

  • How to present your bookkeeping for easy CPA review,

  • How to record your transactions so your books will provide the support you need in case of a tax audit, and

  • How to present your bookkeeping to your CPA so it will save them time to reduce your fees without compromising your safety and peace of mind.
