Financial statements –whether compiled, reviewed, or audited –have become the single most important basis for measuring an organization's financial health. The banks need it. The nonprofit boards rely upon it. The donors request it. Not only are these statements intended to provide accountability to management and comparability to other organizations, they are crucial for management's internal use in gaining an accurate perspective of where the organization stands and what changes need to be made to ensure that resources are most effectively used to achieve long terms goals of the organization.
We take the financial information you give us and help you make the necessary adjustments to arrive at an accurate picture of your organization’s financial operations and position. Then we help you understand and analyze the information so that you can make more informed decisions and plan strategically. Our goal is to handle the accounting technicalities so that you can put your time and energy into running your organization with greater effectiveness, which includes helping you improve your financial processes and reporting.

tax planning and compliance
We know taxes. In fact it’s not just our specialty, it’s our passion. We help our clients develop tax strategies that work, and qualify for as many deductions and tax credits as possible to minimize tax liabilities. We work with ministries, churches, nonprofits, and pastors to guide them through the complex tax environment and offer tax planning assistance throughout the year.
Not-for-Profit Organizations and Churches
We help organizations apply for and receive tax exempt recognition from the IRS. Once received, we help organizations navigate through the maze of state property tax exemption and use rules, understanding when your organization is required to pay or collect sales tax, understanding and complying with unrelated business income tax issues, and advising on designated charitable contribution issues.
We firmly believe that the best tax strategies come from viewing your lifestyle and finances holistically. You need advice that is practical to your everyday life. We like to take the time to learn about your plans for the coming year –anticipated expenses, changes in employment, projects underway, etc. –so that we can accurately project and help minimize your tax burden and to help you get the maximum benefit from your housing allowance. We encourage you to contact us throughout the year as circumstances change and you are faced with new decisions that may have a significant tax impact.
