QuickBooks Accounting Help and 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, setup and use it properly. I don’t just help you use the software, I can help you use it more efficiently and more effectively.
C.A.T.S. offers the following solutions to help meet your QuickBooks needs:
I can assist new QuickBooks users with initial setup including: EasyStep Interview, Preferences, Lists, Customers, Vendors, Employees, Banking and Reports. I can also help experienced users manage their businesses more effectively by improving their current setup. Many users experience problems and lack the ability to generate and track important information as a result of inadequate setup.
My QuickBooks review service helps companies that 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. This review ensures that you receive timely, relevant and reliable financial information. I 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.
Your business entity has a large impact on your taxes and other liabilities. From your company’s inception through its growth and development. I can advise you on choosing the most advantageous entity type for the functions your business performs.
As technologies rapidly advance, companies increasingly need to update their computer systems. I can review your system competencies and gauge upgrade needs. I can suggest companies to support you in choosing and implementing new hardware or network systems.
Cash Flow and Budgeting Analysis
Good cash management can improve a company’s liquidity, reduce costs, and increase profitability. I can help you maintain optimal cash flow levels by tracking sources and uses, forecasting, and budgeting accordingly. To a business entity, cash flow is something that can make or break the business’ ability to survive. I can help you analyze your spending, re-balance your budget and/or debts for an optimal cash flow to support your business’ success. This balance plan would be revisited if and when there were any major changes in your business structure to ensure that you are operating at an optimal level.
Debt and Finance Advising
Whether your needs are corporate or personal, I can assist you in sorting out the different options available for debt management and financing that might lower your payments and/or reduce the total amount of interest paid. Re-balancing your debts can also result in tax deduction savings. Even if you are able to handle the payments and the amounts of your current debts, my expertise may be able to save you money and/or lower your payments.
