Keep good records.

Without good records, you're probably not claiming all of your allowable income tax deductions and credits. Don't wait, set up a system now and use it all year. It's much easier to have a system in place before tax time to ensure you aren't missing items that could have saved you money.

Why should I use a CPA?

CPA's need to pass a comprehensive exam that covers all aspects of accounting. In order to earn a CPA certificate, an individual must have relevant work experience, a background check and an ethics exam completed. Also, to stay up on all current industry trends and issues, every three years, 120 hours of continuing education is required. The owner of Creative Business Strategies has been a qualified CPA since 1980 and can help you achieve your financial goals, expand your business and plan for the future to avoid any financial trouble down the road.
 

What sets Creative Business Strategies apart from other CPA and financial advisor services?

Creative Business Strategies offers more than the average accounting firm. CBS has a pro-active approach in helping clients maximize their growth and identify ways to minimize their costs. We will not only create a plan for each client that strategizes their tax situation, but we'll also brainstorm ways to expand on opportunities. Unlike other accounting firms, we feel our clients deserve a one-on-one, personalized experience and do all that we can to make that happen.
 

What type of clients do you handle?

If you file a tax return, run a business or are trying to make money, then you're a potential client to Creative Business Strategies. If you have back tax problems or debt workout situations we can help you there too. Creative Business Strategies' bottom line is to make people more money than they charge in fees.
 

What is required of me?

CBS understands that as individuals or business owners, tax and accounting issues are not always your most important concern. This is why we work hard to make your record keeping as fast and efficient as possible. We will work to educate you how to grow your business and come up with new ideas to make and save money.
 

How can accounting help make me money?

Accounting is the backbone of every business. Accounting tells you if you are losing or making money. If you create a profit and loss statement each month, you can assess your position and make the needed adjustments in your operations to help your business, in real time. Creative Business Strategies can also connect you with new clients, investors or other people who can help your business get ahead, as well as brainstorm new marketing techniques to help build your customer base and enhance your bottom line.
 

What does a Financial Accountant do?

Accountants are trained to provide data that business owners need in order to make solid business-related decisions. A financial accountant has the job of categorizing, measuring and documenting all the transactions of a business organization in order to analyze how it can make or save money and prepare for the future.
 

What does an Accounting Specialist do?

Accounting Specialists analyze business organizations. They are responsible for analyzing operational procedures, forecasting trends and identifying weaknesses to help make them strengths.
 

What does a CPA do?

A Certified Public Accountant is an independent financial consultant who serves individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations. CPAs handle a wide variety of responsibilities including financial planning, tax preparation, loan/equity financing, debt workout and more. Call us today for a free quote on where we can help you.
 

Can I just write checks, make deposits and file taxes?

Yes, you can, but you won't really understand the underworkings of your company and how they affect your profits. You need to do some form of accounting in order to keep track of your expenses such as marketing, labor, supplies, etc. Also without some form of accounting and analysis, you'll miss out on tax reduction opportunities and other money-saving strategies.
 

What does a balance sheet do for me?

A balance sheet shows a snapshot of your assets, liabilities, and your equity. It shows your liquidity, whether you're over-leveraged, and whether your business is upside down or right-side up. It allows you to assess whether you have the right allocation of assets, liabilities, and equity.
