Accounting Services

Access all your banking needs in the office or at home. The Tax Shelter online accounting package is an effective and efficient way to utilize professional accounting services from a computer. Our communications package is proven to be an extremely secure program, as well as very user friendly. We want this to be a helpful tool you can access, even if you aren’t the most conditioned computer user.

We don’t want technology to get in the way of our personalized care, which we take so much pride in. We handle online accounting in two ways.

  • One way to use your online accounting package also includes being aided by our firm. You can contact us and have one of our experts remotely log in to your accounting software and walk you through the vitals of your financials. 
  • The second way is simply by sending a copy of your digital file to us. You can do this online through email, secure FTP or conventional mail. 

Once we receive your file, we begin reviewing it for accuracy and compliance with all tax laws. If there are any changes to be made, we will carefully edit and make the necessary changes. Once all this is done, we prepare financial reports for your use. These can help you identify areas of your business and budget that aren’t helping you grow. You have the confidence of knowing that your financial data has been reviewed by an accounting professional and is accurate.

Setting up accounting software can be very difficult and time-consuming, especially for someone who does not enjoy technology. Even after the setup, the actual operation of the software is tedious. Figuring the ends and outs of accounting software can be very challenging. This is where The Tax Shelter comes in. We hope to take the hassle out of online setup and provide you with an easy, accessible computer system. Many of our associates studied accounting technology and passed the rigorous Intuit QuickBooks Certification coursework. We consider them experts and hired them to assist you. The Tax Shelter is also a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor. Aka, we are experts in America’s number one small business accounting and management software.

Many companies install this software, lacking the proper education to use it to its full potential. We can show you the helpful tools and installations that make this program impressive and efficient. We start with a flawless installation, then a full set-up, followed by on-site staff training until everyone is comfortable operating the software. Afterwards, if you still have questions or issues, feel free to contact us. The Tax Shelter is always available for your technical support.

The Tax Shelter offers complete payroll services. Compared to larger payroll processing companies, you’ll see a major difference in the quality and service of the payroll services at The Tax Shelter. The Tax Shelter does not debit your bank account for payroll wages and taxes. You have complete control of your money up until the date the liability is due. This allows your company to maintain better cash flow. Larger payroll processing companies debit your bank account at the time the payroll is processed for both wages and taxes – even if the taxes are not due.

The Tax Shelter provides full-service payroll processing as well as on-site staff training to allow your company to process payroll in-house.

Bookkeeping is a very important role in keeping the company’s financial transactions accurate. Transactions are identified, approved, sorted and stored (usually in a software program) so they can be later retrieved and used in the financial statements and other reports. Keeping accurate transactions helps business owners or managers determine the profitability of the company and its’ viability to stay open.

  • A company’s financial transactions may include:
  • Bank loans for business or equipment.
  • Purchasing equipment or office supplies.
  • Office space rent.
  • Sale of merchandise or services.
  • Employee wages or salaries.
  • Insurance for business, vehicles, and/or employees.
  • Product supplies for inventory.

Transactions are often sorted into hundreds of accounts including Cash, Accounts Receivable, Loans Payable, Accounts Payable, Sales, Rent Expense, Salaries Expense, Wages Expense, etc. The amounts in each of these accounts are then included on the company’s financial statements on a monthly, quarter, or yearly time frame.

With a possibility of hundreds of accounts and thousands of transactions, some small or medium sized businesses need help keeping the daily transactions organized and applied properly for best bookkeeping and accounting practices. This is where we can help.

The Tax Shelter offers a complete line of bookkeeping services for small businesses and medium sized businesses. No matter what your accounting needs are, we have the staff and the experience to serve your needs. We can design a bookkeeping package, which includes only the services that you need, to efficiently handle your bookkeeping service needs. For more information, contact us below.
