Keeping the “books” has always been a business fundamental. The first “bookkeeping systems” were stone tablets etched with transactions dating back to 4000 BC Babylon and Assyria! While “systems” have certainly changed, what separates a middling enterprise from a successful one remains the same; the distinguishing factor is, at least partly, the processes used to collect, track, organize, retrieve, and report data. How the transactions that make up your business’s financial picture are recorded, can help or hinder the goal of accurately, completely, and compliantly documenting your finances.
Accurate and complete bookkeeping services provided by Whyte & Associates in Rancho Cucamonga provide valuable insights into the business that can be used to drive effective, strategic decision-making. If the books that you keep are “off the mark,” the strategies that you develop will likely miss their target, too. Plus, there is no skirting the legal requirements that your business is bound to; eventually, the IRS and other government agencies or regulatory bodies will catch up with you. For these and a multitude of other reasons, it is critical to partner with an exceptional bookkeeper or accountant, just as you might partner with a top-notch lawyer, financial advisor, and lender.
And, while we leverage the latest and greatest software, it is merely an ally. Software is generally not going to responsively answer any questions specific to your situation that you may encounter. Likewise, software does not actively take the data that is collected to identify patterns, or opportunities for growth and improvement. When you partner with our team, which includes Enrolled Agents, the highest credential awarded by the IRS, you are dealing with people. We are experienced professionals with firsthand knowledge of your industry or sector, whether you own a chain of restaurants, represent a major franchise brand, run a dental practice, or are the proud owner of an auto repair shop.
Since each type of business has different terms and nuances, on-the-job “training” when combined with technical accounting and bookkeeping expertise, is a powerful combination. We also pride ourselves in consistently fast turnaround times that do not compromise quality. Regardless of if you want monthly, quarterly, or annual financial statements, our firm is committed to preparing this information within a month.
We encourage you to contact us today to free up more time in your schedule, and to ease the headaches associated with this critical, yet often tedious, function. We look forward to hearing from you, and are not going anywhere! Our firm has been serving fellow entrepreneurs across the Inland Empire since 1956.
