Tax for Small Business


Helen M. McCann, CPA  offers one-stop tax services for Home-Based Businesses, Sole Proprietorships, Partnerships, and Corporations.  Helen can help you at start-up with QuickBooks®, set-up and tax planning advice, find a bookkeeper, prepare your taxes and assist with difficult issues like reconciling a problem account.  Helen can help you decide which business structure is right for you and provides you with the information you need to start and grow your business.

  • Tax Preparation Helen’s goal is to help you pay the least amount of tax that is legal.  Whether you are an LLC, a Sole Proprietor, a Corporation or a Partnership, Helen can prepare a tax return for you and your company.  Helen stays up to date with the latest software, reference materials, and continuing education to ensure that she has the tools, information and skills to give you accurate advice and help you file a complete and correct return.
  • Tax Planning and Consulting As the owner of a small business, Helen understands the unique challenges you face in a way many of the big companies can’t.  She knows that every small business has its own unique ways of doing things and understands that every employee in a small business is wearing many hats.  Helen works with you to find ways of being in compliance and meeting requirements that fit the way your business works.  Helen can help you with retirement and compensation planning, help you navigate federal and local regulations, and even work with the IRS.
    Planning can be especially critical for a small business operating with minimal staff and frequently unpredictable cash flows.  Doing at least one tax projection mid-year to determine what you will owe can be critical for small businesses – helping you avoid big surprises later.
  • QuickBooks® Set-Up and Trouble-Shooting  If you are just starting your business, Helen can help you set up your books, as well as answer questions regarding obligations and requirements under state and federal law.  Spending a little time and money getting your accounting system in order now can save you time and money down the road.  Again, Helen does not take a one-size-fits-all approach to helping you set up your books – she will work with you to make sure that the set-up meets accounting best practices and works with your business.  Having your books in good order can also mean a more efficiently – and less expensively – prepared tax return.
  • Problem Account Reconciliation Helen can help you bring your bank account back into balance, get your accounting records straightened out, perform database fix-it work, and team up with your bookkeeper to make sure that your financial accounting database is providing clear and properly classified information.  Helen can help you do all the things that you or your bookkeeper may not have the time or expertise to handle on your own.  Dealing with these things early can mean time and money saved at tax time.
