Sales Tax Services
Many of our clients are responsible for collecting and submitting sales taxes in many different vicinities. We can assist your company in the compilation of information and preparation of sales tax returns in an efficient and timely manner.
As a business grows, it must hire more employees, which can result in increased payroll administration. We can assist you in implementing the controls necessary to ensure a reliable, efficient, and effective payroll system. Our firm can also help you develop a payroll system and prepare all necessary payroll tax returns in a timely manner.
Reviews and Compilations
We view our role in the financial reporting process as an opportunity to provide constructive solutions for maximizing your company's profitability and efficiency. We provide financial reporting on two levels of assurance:
- Review - some analytical procedures conducted with limited assurance
- Compilation - based upon client information provided and used primarily for internal use.

Organizations that are structured to properly allocate resources and to support effective communication throughout the business are more likely to succeed in challenging times. We work with you to analyze and improve upon the structure of your business with regards to overall work design, hierarchical structure, communication tools, feedback mechanisms and supplier relationships.
The way your people work together and the way your products and services reach the customers define your overall system. The critical operating processes of your company are the differentiators that separate your company from your competitors. We work with your team to document and improve upon the critical processes of your company and we train your team to refer to and continuously improve the processes to ensure organizational learning and memory.
The human capital of your company is your company's #1 vehicle to success. We believe that human resources should be strategic in nature and managed as a critical asset. Through leadership development, training, coaching and feedback the members of your organization will drive the infinite operational success of the business. We work with your team in developing an innovative, near real-time feedback reporting system that spans across all functions of the organization in order to drive the decision making process.
