We understand that for many business owners, accounting, payroll, and taxes can be a nuisance; it has to be done, but no one wants to do it. Rather than spend countless hours doing it yourself (hours that you could be using to grow your business), we can step in and manage as much or as little of that work as you want. The financial information that we process can also be a powerful tool that helps you determine how best to grow your business, save costs, and so much more. At Pearl Accounting, we take your nuisance and turn it into something of value.
Tax return preparation, year-end tax planning, large transaction planning to minimize tax liability, and providing feedback on opportunities for appropriate tax strategies. Tax services are available for businesses, individuals, nonprofits, trusts, and estates.
Customized bookkeeping services to match your needs, from performing all tasks related to accounting (like check writing and bill paying, performing reconciliations, Form 1099 preparation, and mailing, etc), to just helping finalize everything at year end (like calculating and recording depreciation), and everything in between.
Preparing regularly scheduled payroll, bonus and special payrolls, consulting work to help up set up and run payroll yourself, and/or preparing payroll tax returns.
