QuickBooks Assistance

QuickBooks can provide useful and timely information in the form of financial statements, reports and graphs. However, it can only provide this information if you purchase the right product and then install, set-up and use it properly. We don't just help you use the software, we help you use it more efficiently and more effectively.

Grandchamp, McBride, Wallner, Wallner & Prophet, CPAs, PC offers the following solutions to help meet your QuickBooks needs:

Personal Training

We train you personally! Either one-on-one or several individuals within your organization at your company's location.

Installation

We install QuickBooks on your stand alone computer or in a network environment, in either single- or multi-user mode.

Setup

Many users experience problems and lack the ability to generate and track important information as a result of inadequate setup. We assist new QuickBooks users with initial setup including: EasyStep Interview, Preferences, Lists, Customers, Vendors, Employees, Banking and Reports. We also help experienced users manage their businesses more effectively by improving their current setup.

Support

Our QuickBooks support service can assist you with any installation, setup or operational assistance you might need. In addition, our support can also provide accounting and payroll assistance.

Review

Many companies have the human resources to perform daily accounting and payroll tasks, but need an accounting and payroll expert to review your transactions, accounts and reports. Our QuickBooks review service ensures that you receive timely, relevant and reliable financial information. We also inform you of any corrections, adjustments or reclassifications necessary to ensure that the financial information you receive reflects the correct financial condition of your business. Reviews may be conducted at any time, but monthly reviews provide you with up-to-date information and feedback about your business.

Cash Flow and Budgeting Analysis

To a business entity, cash flow is something that can make or break the business's ability to survive. Good cash management can improve a company's liquidity, reduce costs, and increase profitability. We can help you analyze your spending, re-balance your budget and/or debts to optimize cash flow. We can also help you maintain optimal cash flow levels by tracking sources and uses, forecasting, and budgeting accordingly. If you change your business structure in the future, we can re-evaluate the budget plan to ensure that you are still operating at an optimal level. With our help and guidance, you will always be on top of your finances and ready for the future.

Accounting Services

From start-ups to established enterprises, businesses rely on accurate and insightful financial information to maintain profitability and capitalize on new opportunities.

Audits, Reviews, and Compilation

Our financial statement services comprise all three levels of assurance depending on your company's needs.

Audits

Audits offer the highest level of assurance to third parties, and include in-depth examination and confirmation of account balances, inventories, and selected transactions. We perform audits for you to remove errors and ascertain the validity and reliability of your information.

Reviews

Reviews provide limited assurance to outside interests. Reviews involve inquiries and analytical procedures that confirm financial statement matters and identify any items requiring further analysis. We perform reviews to ensure the integrity of your data.

Compilations

Compilations are usually requested for internal purposes and are based upon information provided by a company's management. They do not offer assurance but may involve some adjustment to accounting records.

Estate and Trust Planning and Tax Preparation

Effective estate and trust planning can ensure financial security for loved ones. For businesses, it can maintain a smooth succession of ownership. Our role is to help you navigate the complex and shifting tax laws to facilitate the transfer of assets and minimize the tax liability of your beneficiaries. Everyone should have a well-thought-out-plan for disbursing their estate in order to avoid complications and be sure your wishes are followed. We can work with your legal counsel to be certain that your taxes and estate are thoroughly and carefully planned, so that your loved ones won't have to deal with unnecessary complications during a time of loss.

Financial and Retirement Planning

We can help you reach your financial goals and maintain financial independence through a comfortable retirement. We can guide you through tough decision-making processes such as asset allocation; investment performance monitoring; college education funding; retirement plans; insurance; and tax, estate, and business succession planning. Whether you are developing an investment strategy or evaluating current investments, we can ensure that your portfolio encompasses tax implications for an advantageous after-tax return. The road to retirement is shorter than you think, and we can help you to take the proper steps to attain your goals.

These services can involve quantification of economic loss or damages, analysis of financial records, and fraud and theft investigation. Financial and personal records are often vast and confusing to sort through. With our professional training, we can make sense of your records and transactions and get to the bottom line.

Bookkeeping/Write-up

Accurate recordkeeping is essential to a successful business but it can also be complicated and time consuming. We can assist with your bookkeeping organization and day-to-day tasks, so that you can focus on your core business.

Entity Selection and Restructuring

The type of business entity you select has a significant impact on your taxes and other liabilities. From your company's inception through its growth and development, we can advise you on which entity type to choose, and recommend subsequent restructuring as your business evolves. With our knowledge and expertise, you can be confident that you have the most advantageous entity type for the functions your business performs.
