How Can A Business Tax Accountant Help You?

Written by Nathan Watt

You know the feeling. You wake up sensing something is amiss. You check for your phone, glasses, kids and dog—all good. So, what's that sinking feeling? Taxes! Dread creeps up your spine as you realize you still haven’t done your taxes. Don't you worry, there are professionals out there to help get your taxes done right and on time. Just call a business tax accountant.

Call a What?

A business tax accountant! Imagine you have a heap of important papers, including legal ones that, if not handled correctly, could get you in a lot of trouble. Now imagine there is someone waiting on the other end of the phone, sitting upright and waiting to help you with all your business worries. Do you call? Of course, you call. That's what this kind of accountant can do for you.

A business tax accountant is well versed in tax law—P.S. it changes all the time—policy changes, forms, filing deadlines, exemptions, deductions and all the stuff you don't want to fill your head with. They are well trained and the really good ones not only have a passion for numbers—who knew?—but also for making sure you succeed no matter what stage of business you're in.

You might have Marge, your mother's best friend's aunt, who does your tax each year. But she has to put her new grandkids first, so she hasn't had time to read up on all the changing regulations, figure out what forms to use this year and won't be able to file on time. You can't be solely reliant on Marge—hire a professional.

What Does a Business Tax Accountant Do?

Think about this—every move you make affects your business. Your business tax accountant will track those steps and report the important ones. Even if you have no idea where to start, you can meet with them, they'll make a list of what you need, and then you bring it back to them. You really don't have to do the work, just provide the paper trail—or electronic if you've upgraded to 2020.

Your accountant—that just sounds cool—can help you with a slew of business money and tax issues. They keep up to date on the ever-changing tax codes and laws and how to apply them to your unique situation. They will help you deal with:

What Services Can They Offer You?

Business tax accountants do more than just help you around tax time. Everything you do during the year will affect your taxes one way or the other, and there are ways to make things easier at the end of the financial year.

You can reach out to your tax professional during the year to understand the tax implications of buying or selling real estate, buying or selling securities and any other major financial decisions you want to make.

It doesn't stop there. You have a ton of paperwork to do every single day. And because your business survives because of the products or services you offer, it makes sense the less time you spend pushing papers, the more you can spend on what actually makes your business profitable.

A tax accountant like us will help you maximize your deductions and use proactive tax strategies to save you time and money now and in the future.  That's all part of our core accounting and tax services.

Your passion is what your business is all about—it's what gets you excited in the morning and wakes you up in the middle of the night because you've just had another idea.
