Entity Selection

There are many options available for your entity type. The tax and legal traits of each are different and it’s important to evaluate which is best for your situation. The most common entity formats are:

  • Sole proprietorship
  • C Corporation
  • S Corporation
  • Partnership and Limited Liability Company (LLC)

Strategic Business Planning

A Strategic Business Plan is much more than a tool to obtain financing. If you still have all your plans and ideas locked up inside your head, preparing a strategic plan can help you clarify your company's direction. It can ensure that your key leaders are all on the same page and keeps both management and staff focused on the tasks at hand.

A Strategic Plan is often needed when:

  • Starting a new venture
  • Launching a new product or service
  • Expanding a current organization, product or service
  • Buying a new business, product or service
  • Turning around a declining business

Cash Flow Management

Proper and timely cash flow is imperative for every business.

Our cash management service allows you to:

  • Know when, where, and how your cash needs will occur
  • Know what the best sources are for meeting your additional cash needs
  • Be prepared to meet these needs when they occur, by keeping good relationships with bankers and other creditors

Internal Controls

At times you may need a trained outside professional to evaluate your company's operations to determine if the appropriate controls are in place to ensure proper handling of resources and to protect yourself from employee theft. We assess your internal control systems to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of your operating procedures. Then we make recommendations that help your company become stronger and more profitable by correcting any inefficient or ineffective operating procedures we find.
