Don’t Pay the IRS more than yourself! The Advantages of Monthly Accounting Service

Monthly Accounting Services Benefits for AZ Business Owners

Are you overwhelmed with trying to run your day to day operations, manage your employees, generate new sales and also stay on top of your books? Stressing over tax laws, profit and loss statements, and learning the correct documents to file with the tax authorities is done much easier with the assistance of a quality small business accountant! A number of factors affect business taxes such as health insurance, 401K plans, payroll, depreciation, inventory, etc- and it can be confusing for the business owner!

Financial reporting is essential but most businesses prefer focusing on the growth of the business rather than concentrating on tax codes, and keeping books. However, unpaid taxes cause many problems for business owners. Therefore, having professionals manage your financials and monitor your tax situation is the best way to avoid delinquency and tax fines.

Plus, when financial information is necessary for loans, audits and inventory, accountants are skilled at knowing what information you should have organized for accurate tax assessments.

4 BENEFITS of using our monthly accounting service:

  1. After we are done with our monthly work, your company’s financial health can be seen at a quick glance.
  2. Year-end summaries are less difficult to acquire because they are up to date on a monthly basis.
  3. Individual taxes: Besides small businesses, our local CPA firm prepares annual taxes for individuals, trusts, and estates.
  4. Less stress: our knowledge, education and experience working with small business owners means that our clients are compliant with Federal and state tax law.  

As your business grows, your needs will change. New employees are hired, inventory grows, and finances increase and the need for accounting services for your small business will grow accordingly too!

Many new retailers don’t fully understand how the lifeblood of their business—buying and selling inventory—is treated by the IRS for income tax purposes. If you pay an employee, or buy an advertisement, or purchase a qualifying piece of equipment for your store, that’s usually a deductible business expense. But when you receive a shipment of inventory and write a check to your vendor, you have not incurred a deductible expense. Instead, you’ve “traded” one business asset (cash) for another asset (inventory). You don’t deduct the cost of your inventory until you sell it, when the price you paid becomes part of your Cost of Goods Sold calculation.

As the owner of a retail store or other product-based business, you probably devote most of your time and energy to marketing your business, engaging with customers, and making sure you have the right product mix and stock level to ensure a smooth—and profitable—flow of inventory. This isn’t always easy, especially if your retail business deals with seasonal fluctuations of product supply and customer demand. How do you manage your inventory so you always have just the right product mix and stock level, sourced from the best vendors at the most favorable terms possible?

Contact us today to learn how we can help you achieve your business goals and dreams.  We  know… it is hard to believe it in this Arizona heat, but fall “busy-time” is right around the corner!
