Should my business be a corporation or a partnership?

This is one of the many questions that needs to be answered BEFORE beginning any business! The type of business organization that you choose impacts many financial areas such as:
Corporate and Individual liability

I will assist you in understanding the many different forms of business organizations and which one will be in your best interest.

In addition, I can assist you in preparing the Articles of Incorporation, filing with the appropriate agencies, obtaining state and federal ID numbers, and making sure that your new business is in compliance with all state and federal regulations.

I can take the worry off of your shoulders so that you concentrate on what is important, running your business

Financial Statements


Balance Sheet:
Reflects a snapshot of your assets and liabilities

Income Statement:
Reflects income/loss over a period of time

  I can prepare financial statements on a quarterly or monthly basis for internal or external use.

Internal Use:

I teach you how to read and understand what the financial statements are telling you about your financial position.

Utilize them to track your profit or loss and understand what areas of your business need additional attention.

Use them to make informed decisions regarding purchasing assets, adding product lines, increasing gross margin and many other financial considerations.

By using financial statements on a consistent basis, you can be proactive in understanding you financial position and how your actions affect the bottom line!

External Use:

I prepare GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) basis financial statements that are approved by banking institutions.

If you need to acquire a loan, line of credit, or need to add additional capital to your business, banks require approved financial statements.

I can work with your bank, providing them with the financial statements, and any other information that they require.

Financial statements are an integral part of any business, utilize them to grow your business!
