I can help you clean up the errors so that your reports make sense and I can train you to properly use your software. Accounting software can be very frustrating and confusing at times and it’s not always easy to get the help you need from technical support.
Accounting Software Selection & Implementation
There is no shortage of accounting software solutions for your business. Software as a service (SaaS), cloud computing, and other technological innovations are adding more dimensions to technology decisions. Choosing the right solution that will meet the needs of your business now and in the future while also providing a necessary level of security is crucial. I can analyze the nature of your business and financial transactions, current technology, future business plans and emerging needs to identify and implement a software solution that is flexible enough to grow and change with your business.
If your business does not currently have accounting staff or if your business is outgrowing its current bookkeeping system, I can provide comprehensive bookkeeping and write-up services to ensure the smooth operation of the financial side of your business. As your business needs grow and change, I can provide input and planning assistance to make sure your accounting and financial systems keep pace with your business needs.
Business Entity Selection
The business entity—LLP, LLC, sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, etc.— that you select for your business has enormous financial and tax implications. It is important that you make the right decision. I can explain each choice and its implications. As your business grows and changes, the type of business entity you choose may need to change also.
I can help you understand the tax advantages of using specific types of savings accounts in order to save for college expenses.

Effective tax preparation and planning can help you to minimize your future tax liability.
