Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO YOU BILL FOR YOUR SERVICES?

Our standard billing procedure is to bill monthly for accounting services.  We arrive at a flat monthly fee that is right for your size business and level of service.  Payroll is billed by frequency of payroll and number of checks issued.  Tax return preparation fees are based on the forms involved and complexity of the return. Consulting and planning are billed hourly at the partners or employees hourly rate.  We require payment upon receipt. All standard forms of payment are accepted including credit cards.

WHAT HOURS ARE YOU AVAILABLE?

We are available during normal business hours, which are 8:30 to 4:30, Monday through Friday. We would be happy to make special arrangements for evening or weekend consultations.

WHAT ROLE DO YOU PLAY IF THE IRS AUDITS ME?

We will spend up to one full hour with you at no charge, going over the return in question with you. After that, our regular hourly fees apply.

HOW MUCH AND WHAT KIND OF PREPARATION DO YOU NEED FOR MY RETURN?

We prefer that your materials be in a computer accounting program, but we have taken materials in almost every imaginable form.
