Having quality tax, accounting and consulting services provided by Rio Grande CPA is affordable. Not only can we create a package that will meet most budgets, the value we bring for the services we offer will more than cover the cost. You will find significant savings with our solutions.
In the tax role, you could be missing out on THOUSANDS of dollars of tax savings, net operating loss carryforwards (or backward), capital gain losses, or misclassifying or deducting expenses incorrectly. Tax law and regulation is not always what makes sense to the ordinary person and reading the tax code is usually not straightforward. We have clients that have been clients for years and often times losses can offset future gains years down the road. This is something our firm will track and optimize.
On the accounting side, accounting needs to be handled or at least supervised by a trained accountant. We know most business owner don't like or want to handle this part of the business but we believe they should always be aware of:
- Their obligations and the importance of good accounting
- Who is doing the recordkeeping and what is being done, and
- How their business is performing.
Often individuals and business owners think that doing it themselves or having an office worker is sufficient but we have found the opposite to be true. It takes years to become proficient at accounting and tax concepts. A full time accountant would cost anywhere from $30,000 - $70,000 per year! If you are like most business owners, you can't afford and don't need a full time accountant but you still need the same quality of service. Expecting someone with little or no training is not good business.
Our practice is very aware of small business operations from the start up to the mature company and can help you. If you are a start up or small/micro business, then having our firm handle most of the process might be ideal. If you are a larger firm, with a competent person that manages the office work, we can train them on Quickbooks or data entry and then review transactions quarterly.
So how much does it cost? Well, the answer is it depends. It depends on the complexity and what work needs to be done. The first step is to contact us. We'll set up a meeting to ask you about your needs and either let you know if there is a package that fits your needs and the cost or will give you an estimate of the project cost. We will make the process as painless as possible. And during this process you will get to know us and we will get to know you.
