How A CPA Can Help You Grow Your Business

Published by:

Vaughn CPA LovelandI was talking with the Vaughn CPA Company a Loveland cpa firm with offices in Colorado and New Mexico about how something like an accountant can help you grow your business.

The old saying “you can’t grow what you don’t measure” comes to mind.  When you let someone who is an expert in this area take a look at your books they can see things that you can’t.  They can see things you can do that will directly touch your bottom line.  They also can see where you are hemorrhaging profits.

How much does it cost you to get a lead?  How much does it cost you to get a customer?  How many times do your customers buy from you a week, month, year, or lifetime?

If you don’t know these things you can’t grow your business.  A CPA can help you discover these little known pockets of profits.

Or maybe you hate doing books, you hate doing your taxes every year.

Get someone else to do it who actually enjoys that kind of thing!

Here’s what their website says they do:

TAX PREPARATION

Northern Colorado CPA FirmOur experienced personnel have been preparing tax returns for many years as a tax and CPA firm. The business and the laws have changed, but the judgment required to accurately prepare and plan only improves with experience. Every year, we prepare more than 1000 individual, corporate, partnership, and business tax returns. Business planning and consulting and coaching go hand in hand with proper tax accounting and tax preparation.

If you have been selected for a tax audit, we can assist you to be ready for your appointment or represent you, if necessary. When your tax accounting records need to be squeaky clean, we can help. Tax audits may be intimidating and emotional.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Our CPA firm performs audits, reviews and other assurance services. These services carry that extra measure of assurance that reports of Certified Public Accountants (CPA’s) have always provided. Accurate accounting records are the foundation for all financial statements, which should be prepared under generally accepted accounting principles. These statements are critical for business planning and consulting, and other financial decisions.
Audited or Reviewed Financials or Compiled statements may be required by your bank or for bonding. Construction contractors may have special requirements. Accurate accounting is the foundation for all financial information; a service we provide. Business planning and consulting begins with proper statements prepared using generally accepted accounting principles, and that may mean audited or reviewed financial statements. If you are considering purchasing a business, you may want the assurance that such statements provide.

BUSINESS CONSULTING PLANNING

How is your business doing and why do you need a consultant? Our firm asks this question early in the process. Let’s focus on where you thing a problem may exist. No matter what size business you have, how much money you gross or net, a moderate review may reveal some underlying problems that have been overlooked because you have the day to day operations, sales, collections, bills, etc. to complete. A step back is the first step of our approach to business consulting. Call VaughnCPA to find something in your company that can be fixed.

INDIVIDUAL FINANCIAL CONSULTING

Individual Financial Consulting takes effort. While we all realize that we need to do the planning, we rarely sit down and actually PLAN TO PLAN. The financial consulting offered by an outside firm, becomes a great help. Monthly scheduled meetings at neutral places, “homework” assignments and discussions on specific problem areas will become meetings to look forward to rather than a chore to be avoided. The outside influence keeps you on track and moving in the right direction.

NON-PROFIT ACCOUNTING

Organizing and operating a nonprofit corporation, or serving on the board of your favorite activity may seem a simple thing. You have a mission and a passion. These, along with a lot of hard work, may make your organization a huge success. There are some guidelines to follow and our CPA firm, will guide you through rules and regulations and give you practical advice about Non-profit accounting best practices.

NON-PROFIT TAX

One of the instructions given by the IRS and most States to nonprofit organizations is that they follow guidelines to insure that the organization is governed properly (good governance). Your bylaws should state these rules and how to use them. If they do not, then it is time for a bylaws committee to revise them to be in line with “best practices”.

NON-PROFIT CCOMPLIANCE

One of the instructions given by the IRS and most States to nonprofit organizations is that they follow guidelines to insure that the organization is governed properly (good governance). Your bylaws should state these rules and how to use them. If they do not, then it is time for a bylaws committee to revise them to be in line with “best practices”.
Bylaws may be relatively simple. There are many examples on the internet and on some State websites. These will give you the basic format and should be changed to conform to how your nonprofit actually works.

 

If any of you need help with that kind of thing. Give them a call.
