Atlanta CPA Advises Taxpayers on Converting their Business from an LLC to an S Corporation
One of the most frequent questions we get each and every week is from Georgia business owners seeking to discover what entity type they should be. Below is a sample letter that we might receive researching entity selection issues:
Love your site as it has given me tons of information to consider. I am starting my graphic design business and I'm in the process now of getting my company rolling. I wanted to know what your consult fee is, how much do you charge for CPA services and if you have dealt with single-member LLCs which are disregarded entities (non-corp.)? I have learned about what taxes I would need to pay and which ones I don't, but having someone help me to get my information solidified is always needed. I am a Christian brother, so I know any help would be sincere and helpful. Thank you in advance. Romans 1:16

The largest and most burdensome administrative responsibility for a business owner is payroll. Whether you have one employee or a thousand, both the IRS and your state has a myriad of payroll reports and deadlines for which you are required to complete. Unfortunately there is not a one-stop shop to pay and report all of the varying deadlines and taxes. However, there is a solution that makes the reporting of payroll dramatically more seamless than if you strive to go it on your own. To learn more visit http://www.hiscpa.com/payroll.html

Bugs4Christ....Atlanta CPA Presents Using Unique Ways to Reach the Lost, the Last & the Least
Taking Christianity Into the World...Navajo Family Missions...Reaching the Young Men & Women on the Reservation
In the fall of 2006, John Albrycht, the Youth Pastor at Plentitude Baptist Church involved his youth group in the secret restoration of a 1971 VW Beetle. The project was dubbed "Bugs4Christ" and the Beetle soon became an object lesson in how God wants to restore our hearts to a right relationship with him. John wanted his youth to understand the mandate of Hebrews 10:23-25: "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope that we profess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another and all the more as you see the Day approaching!" He wanted his youth to feel the power of encouraging others by restoring and giving the gift of unconditional love to the owner of the vintage car. Since that first incredible project, the members of this ministry have been involved in several other restoration projects. They are nearing the completion of a blue customized 1972 Super Beetle and they have just begun the restoration of another 1971 Super Beetle.

Atlanta CPA Presents Tax Resolution to America's Taxpayers
As a CPA approaches a tax issue it is best to first review the reasons for the assessment/selection for an IRS audit. Frequently the audit selection is random but often, as well, there is a targeted reason for a taxpayers selection for an IRS audit. Frequently during this process it is discovered that it is not a payment issue but the original returns as filed need to be amended. After the determination of a just and fair tax, one can begin to adequately assess and make arrangements for the monies due. Great care should also be taken during this time to ensure that all payments and credits have been properly applied to the balance owed, as often-complex tax situations/scenarios will require additional review and analysis to fairly determine what is truly owed. Being sure to use a CPA to file all of your business tax returns is a good first step to ensure that your tax return is both properly prepared and that you pay your lowest legal possible tax. Below is a sample letter that might be used to address IRS representation issues:

Atlanta CPA: Bookkeeping/Accounting Guidance to America's Business Owners & Entrepreneurs
A determined and insightful understanding of your Profit & Loss statement (P&L) is essential and critical. Though a balance sheet is a recap of what has happened to a business's assets and liabilities to date, a P & L, properly resented/managed/understood is a look into the company's short as well as its long term viability. A Profit and Loss statement essentially measures how well the business is utilizing company assets, personnel procedures and facilities in its effectiveness of serving customers while keeping a keen eye on profit maximization. By properly gathering and studying one's operations and its corresponding P & L, one can learn much about a business which is useful for measuring rates of return, detecting both positive and negative trends, taking corrective action, and business valuation.
