Bookkeeping is the recording of all financial transactions undertaken by an individual or organization. A bookkeeper, sometimes called an accounting clerk in the United States, is a person who records the day-to-day financial transactions of an organization.
A bookkeeper is usually responsible for writing up the "daybooks". The bookkeeper is responsible for ensuring all transactions are recorded in the correct daybook, suppliers ledger, customer ledger and general ledger. The bookkeeper brings the books to the trial balance stage. An accountant may prepare the income statement and balance sheet using the trial balance and ledgers prepared by the bookkeeper.

A business plan precisely defines your business, identifies your goals, and serves as your firm´s resume. A business plan is a tool with three basic purposes: communication, management, and planning. Too many people think strategic planning is something meant only for big businesses, but it is equally applicable to small businesses. Strategic planning is matching the strengths of your business to available opportunities. To do this effectively, you need to collect, screen, and analyze information about the business environment. You also need to have a clear understanding of your business - its strengths and weaknesses - and develop a clear mission, goals, and objectives.
In addition, strategic planning has become more important to business managers because technology and competition have made the business environment less stable and less predictable. If you are to survive and prosper, you should take the time to identify the niches in which you are most likely to succeed, and to identify the resource demands that must be met.
A business plan should be a work-in-progress. Even successful, growing businesses should maintain a current business plan.
Small Business Marketing Plans are a written set of statements for efficiently moving the business in the direction of the preset marketing objectives. The plan is a blueprint and a picture of your success. In summary a good small business marketing plans begins with a look at the situation. Then a check on company resources: time, money and staff, skills, contacts, dealers, customers, reputation, equipment, supplies and services. Then you set the objectives of the company. Then list your tactical action steps for product and service, price, package, premium, promotion, package, personnel selling, physical distribution and publicity and advertising. Finally, you set up a budget plan and time schedule.Go To Top

Investors’ best protection against risk is to spread their money among various investments, hoping that if one investment loses money, the other investments will more than make up for those losses. This is called diversification.
However, an investment strategy is just one part of a comprehensive financial plan. Every decision you make can affect other aspects of your financial life.Go To Top

Individual income tax is often collected on a pay-as-you-earn basis, with small corrections made soon after the end of the tax year. These corrections take one of two forms: payments to the government, for taxpayers who have not paid enough during the tax year; and tax refunds from the government for those who have overpaid. Income tax systems will often have deductions available that lessen the total tax liability by reducing total taxable income. They may allow losses from one type of income to be counted against another.
Taxable Income - Taxable income is generally equal to a taxpayer´s ADJUSTED GROSS INCOME during the TAX YEAR less any allowable EXEMPTIONS and deductions.Go To Top

Improving your own personal net worth it is something that we all aspire to do, yet more and more of us just cannot attain this goal.
As a basic and generalized rule, one´s personal net worth comes down to one simple equation: assets minus liabilities. In order to calculate this, you must first be able to determine your assets, whether they are liquid, retirement, or fixed. Liquid assets are those from which you can easily obtain money. This is most easily exemplified by a checking or perhaps even a savings account. Fixed assets are those such as your car and your home. Retirement assets include any money in a 401K or an IRA. These types of long term investments will make for more solid retirement assets. Liabilities, on the other hand, are easily noted as what kind of money you owe. Home loans, credit card bills, and even car loans all fall into this category. Obviously, a major step to improving one´s own personal net worth is to make sure that your assets far exceed your liabilities.
Experts agree that in order to most effectively improve your own personal net worth, one must be able to identify and treat your financial situation as a business. Like all businesses, you certainly want to show a profit, both in the short term and in the future. We believe having a written plan will put you on track to a greater net worth in the future, possibly even doubling what you are currently on track to achieve.Go To Top

Review is an accounting service that provides some assurance as to the reliability of financial information. In a review, a CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT (CPA) does not conduct an examination under GENERALLY ACCEPTED AUDITING STANDARDS (GAAS).
Formal document that communicates an independent accountant´s: (1) expression of limited assurance on FINANCIAL STATEMENTS as a result of performing inquiry and analytic procedures (Review Report); (2) results of procedures performed (Agreed-Upon Procedures Report); (3) non-expression of opinion or any form of assurance on a presentation in the form of financial statements information that is the representation of management (Compilation Report); or (4) an opinion on an assertion made by management in accordance with the Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements (Attestation Report). An accountants´ report does not result from the performance of an AUDIT. The Tax Account Review Service (TAR) service is designed to help taxpayers that need specific information about the status of their account with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Many taxpayers complain about receiving inconsistent or incomplete information from the IRS. This service provides taxpayers with clear and concise information about the status of their IRS account.
As part of our Tax Account Review, we provide a year-by-year break down detailing how much is owed for each particular tax year. Additionally, we detail the total amount owed, calculated 30 days into the future, with instructions on how to properly send payment to the IRS, in the event that you wish to fully pay your account balance. Many of our clients are actually surprised to learn they owe less money to the IRS then previously believed.
We also determine whether the IRS has the correct record of all your tax returns. Many taxpayers assume that just because they “filed” a tax return it was received and processed. Unfortunately, there are stories each year of tax returns being lost, not processed, or even stolen. If the IRS doesn’t show that a tax return was filed in their records then they could file one for you, which might result in a tax liability with the IRS.Go To Top
