Our Services Include:

Business Solutions

Every business is unique, which means you need customized financial advice. Our team will discuss your business plans and find a way to reach your immediate and long-term goals. We’ll help overcome the challenges of your unique industry, as well as the standard challenges of running a business.

We work with you, your lawyer, banker, insurance agent, and other advisors to solve your business problems. Some of the management issues we help with include loan applications, cash flow concerns, pricing, and cost controls. We’ll also review your current operations and make adjustments for more profitability.

Is your business prepared for the future? Here are a few ways to increase your profit:

Verify Community Support

Can your local community support your business? Does the local population produce enough demand for your services?

Be Cautious

We’ll help review all proposals or purchase information to make sure your business will benefit.

Trust the Professionals

Bankers, insurance agents, lawyers, and accountants can all help you identify and solve your business problems. Make sure you have an experienced team of advisors behind you.

Plan Incorporation

Before incorporating your business, be sure to check out the long-range and non-tax considerations.

Avoid Late Payroll Penalties

Some businesses get penalized for late payroll tax deposits. To avoid this issue, make sure the first check in your stack is the payroll deposit to your bank.

Listen to Your Customers

It costs an estimated 10x as much to acquire a new customer than it does to retain a current one. Make your customers happy, and they’ll refer new customers to you!

Don’t Make Yourself Indispensable

We’ll make sure your business can run, with or without you. An independent business is a healthy business. You should be able to retire with your own company and be absent as much as you like.

Why are thorough financial records important?

Here are some common ratios you should monitor on a month-by-month and year-by-year basis:

Current ratio

Your current assets divided by your current liabilities. This measures your ability to pay your debts.

Debt to equity ratio

Your total liabilities divided by net worth. This gives you a year-to-year comparison of your ownership in your company.

Receivables outstanding

Your receivables divided by average day’s sales. This gives you the number of day’s sales on the books.

Profit margin

Your gross profit divided by net sales allows you to compare your business operations to industry competitors. It also monitors how well your operations perform over time.
