Warren Buffet is credited with saying "Accounting is the Language of Business" and I believe this to be a profoundly true statement. However, if financial statements are not your thing, then you are trying to understand a foreign language and probably do not find them being very helpful at all!
If, you need help to interpret your financial statements or just getting them together for tax time you are in luck! I speak accounting fluently, and I am a licensed CPA operating a cloud accounting firm out of my office in Belleville, Michigan.
I grew up in small business and, for as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about two things; the first is numbers and the second is helping people succeed. In High School I discovered Accounting and since then I have worked towards building a career that would allow me to use numbers to help people succeed in business. That was a long time ago and now I have an MS in Accounting, an MBA, and my CPA License.
I believe that accurate financial statements can help guide so many business decisions!
The ebb and flow of your business cycle can help you decide when to order more inventory or allow it to deplete. Analyzing patterns can help you decide when to hire a new employee, lease a larger warehouse, raise prices, or even purchase a large piece of equipment. The list of possible uses for financial data is unlimited however, you must start with reliable financial statements. Reliable financial statements also help with tax return preparation and tax strategies.
It would be my distinct honor to help you learn the story that your financial statements are trying to tell and to prepare accurate and reliable financial statements and tax returns for you. Honor may seem like a strange turn of phrase for an accountant but I acknowledge that it can be difficult to let someone else in on the financial health of your business. My goal is to earn your respect and become a trusted business advisor.
I offer tax services, set-up/clean-up/catch-up packages, three levels of monthly service, and business consulting. Depending on your business needs we can construct a solution that works for you and helps your business succeed.
Please schedule a free consultation for more information and to see if we can work together to grow your business.
I look forward to working with you! ~Alana
