Audits, Reviews and Compilations
I view my role in the financial reporting process as an opportunity to provide constructive solutions for maximizing your company's profitability and efficiency. I provide financial reporting on all three levels of assurance:
- Audit- an intensive examination with the highest level of assurance
- Review - some analytical procedures conducted with limited assurance
- Compilation - based upon client information provided and used primarily for internal use.
As a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner I use accounting and auditing skills to provide an analysis of financial records in conjunction with dispute resolutions, as well as fraud and theft investigation. My damage measurement methods can determine the extent of financial loss and illegal accounting practices.

Tax Planning & Preparation
Tax planning and preparation form a winning combination for my successful individual and business clients. I can develop tax strategies that take advantage of new tax laws and legislation.
During my years of experience dealing with many taxing authorities, I have achieved a level of competence that can ensure my clients they are being properly represented before the various federal and state tax agencies.
As a business grows, it must hire more employees, which can result in increased payroll administration. I can assist you in implementing the controls necessary to ensure a reliable, efficient, and effective payroll system. My firm can also help you develop a payroll system and prepare all necessary payroll tax returns in a timely manner.
Sales Tax Services
Many of my clients are responsible for collecting and submitting sales taxes in many different vicinities. I can assist your company in the compilation of information and preparation of sales tax returns in an efficient and timely manner.
I gauge my worth by the personal and business successes of my clients.

In addition to acting as a sounding board for management, I provide comprehensive, flexible strategies that address the issues affecting your business.
Business Entity Selection
Choosing the form of entity of your business (e.g. "S" corporation, sole proprietor, limited liability company…) is a crucial decision that can have longstanding tax implications, positive or negative. I can assist you in evaluating the pros and cons of each entity type to help you determine the most advantageous form of business for your company.
Fraud Prevention & Detection
As a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner I use accounting and auditing skills to provide an analysis of financial records in conjunction with fraud and theft investigation. My damage measurement methods can determine the extent of financial loss and illegal accounting practices.
Litigation support involves the quantification of economic damages pursuant to existing or pending litigation using accounting and auditing techniques. I can compile information efficiently to assist in the calculation and documentation of any potential economic loss or damages.
