5 Reasons to Outsource Your Payroll

Dependable payroll is essential to any business; without it, you could risk serious fines and losing talented employees. Putting your payroll in professional hands comes with multiple benefits. Here are five reasons you need to consider outsourcing your payroll today.

  1. You'll save money by having a professional who can manage your payroll efficiently, and you won't have to pay a full salary for an in-house accountant.
  2. You'll avoid the penalties that come with unnoticed errors and missing filing deadlines.
  3. You'll have an expert to turn to with employee questions and concerns.
  4. You'll receive comprehensive reporting to help you manage your business more effectively and be proactive when special requirements or issues arise.
  5. You'll have more time to focus on the areas of your business that need your attention most.

Does My Business Need Forensic Accounting?

Also called 'investigative accounting', businesses turn to forensic accounting to help them decipher financial data and uncover evidence of illegal accounting activity or practices. It's most often used to find evidence of embezzlement or fraud, but may also be relied on during legal disputes or divorce proceedings. It may also be used to eliminate suspicions, especially if data has been lost, corrupted, or is unreliable.

What to Expect with Forensic Accounting

When you hire someone to conduct forensic accounting, you can expect a comprehensive and in-depth look into the relevant accounting information. Forensic accountants must follow strict guidelines to provide absolute assurance of their findings, and must be capable of backing them up in court if litigation should proceed.

When providing forensic accounting services, our experts strive to be diligent in our pursuit of the truth. We take care to present all facts and reports in a way that is clear, legible, and accurate. Integrity is essential during forensic accounting, and we strive to be honest and impartial at every stage.


New Business Formation

Before your business gets off the ground, various decisions and processes must be finalized. We can assist with many of the financial aspects of starting a new business, from drafting a business plan to establishing the most appropriate tax entity. Having a CPA on your side provides credibility for your startup, and could potentially help you secure capital to get your venture up and running.


Strategic Business Planning: Building a Map to Success

If you relied on a business plan to start your business, you know how valuable they can be. However, the best businesses know that their goal is to outgrow their current plan. To keep your company growing and striving, you'll need to revisit and revise your business plan regularly.

Our team can help you make a strong and reliable business plan to provide direction and motivation for your business. We listen closely to your objectives and use the goals you outline to devise realistic and measurable standards you and your employees can use to evaluate their progress.

Your business plan will provide you with a solid way to measure your progress against your goals over a 3-5 year period, and can even help you proactively identify opportunities to propel company growth and success.


Does My Business Need a Valuation?

It's no surprise that a business valuation is an essential part of buying or selling a business, but you might not know that there are many other benefits to the right valuation.

Buying and Selling

Having a clear valuation for your company puts you at an advantage and helps you to secure a better offer for your company. Naturally, if you're planning a merger or acquisition, you want to be sure you're also getting your money's worth.

Company Growth

An accurate valuation can highlight strengths and weaknesses in your business, which is invaluable for business planning. This can help you balance your business and gain a better market price overall.

Tax Purposes

You may need a specific valuation for tax filing, but it may surprise you to think of using a valuation for tax planning as well. Knowing your company's value can present opportunities for saving throughout the year. It's also essential for estimating tax liability in estate and gift taxes.

Investment Return

Determining how dividends and capital gains should be distributed to investors requires a current and accurate valuation.

Personal Worth

If you own a business, it's likely that most of your wealth is tied into it. Periodic valuations help you understand your net worth so that you can make informed decisions about how to allocate assets to promote your financial wellbeing.


A Dedicated Approach Tailored to You

Your business is one-of-a-kind, and so are your accounting needs. At Accounting, Tax and Investigations Group, we tailor our approach to you and your goals, providing the help you need to reach for your objectives.
