“The profitability of local small businesses in Naples is directly increased by a professional accountant or bookkeeper who understands and keeps current on changing tax laws and accepted accounting principles, who can monitor the financial records of the business correctly, and show the business owner ways to increase the cash flow of their business,” says Kathleen Lettau, CEO and Founder of Perfect Accounting Service located in Naples, Florida. “I meet so many business owners who have bookkeepers or accountants that just don’t know what they are doing, or I find major mistakes in their books when I do an analysis of the work that their past bookkeepers or accountants have done for them,” states Ms. Lettau.
Businesses today need cutting-edge business tools and competent financial accounting personnel in order to surpass their competitors, no matter what industry they are in. Chief among these needs is an accountant or bookkeeper who can keep all of your financial records in order so that you, the business owner, can analyze and understand them. And these financial records must conform to the ever-changing business tax laws, so the IRS can recognize them as standard and best practices. An expert accountant can keep your business out of the gun-sights of the IRS.
Business owners here in Naples, Florida rely on accurate accounting procedures to be done for their business. “It’s the old adage, garbage in – garbage out,” says Ms. Lettau, “If you don’t get accurate figures on your business:
- You may not be taking full advantage of lawful tax deductions,
- You may not recognize that employees may be stealing from you,
- You may not know that customers are getting incorrect invoices,
- You may be paying too much for payroll services or credit card merchant services,
- Your collections may be suffering,
- You may not be paying your bills on time, or filing tax returns on time,
- You may miss the signals that tell you your suppliers have raised their prices, and you need to pass the increased cost on to your customers,
- And you may not be able to take advantage of discounts from your suppliers.
