What Makes a Business Successful?

Never stop investigating ways to improve all areas of your business. The astute businessperson will seek information to assist them in making the changes necessary to stay profitable in a competitive business world. Here are some ideas that could improve your profits:

  • Do your homework

    Before you start a new business, be sure the community can support such a business. Some areas are not large enough to warrant certain specialty shops. A bicycle shop, for example, may take a population base of 50,000 people to make it profitable. A grocery store, on the other hand, can be profitable in a town of only a few thousand.

  • Carefully review business proposals

    Business deals and special franchises that sound too good to be true usually are. We will gladly assist you in reviewing any business purchase or proposal.

  • Enlist the service of professionals

    Accountants, bankers, insurance agents and lawyers can help you solve your business problems. These professionals handle a variety of business problems every day. They make excellent sounding boards for proposed transactions.

  • Check reasons for incorporating

    Don't incorporate your business without first checking the long-range tax and non-tax considerations. There are many small corporations that would be better off operating in some other legal form.

  • Make payroll tax deposits on time

    Businesses receive penalties for late payroll tax deposits. To avoid such problems, let us help you understand the complicated deposit rules.

  • Listen to your customers

    You are not only selling products or services, you are selling customer satisfaction. Satisfied customers return to spend more money and are likely to refer new customers.

  • Strive to retain customers

    Experts estimate that it costs ten times more to acquire a new customer than it does to retain a current customer through effective customer service.

  • Don't make yourself indispensable

    If your company runs well now in your absence, it will run well in the event of your disability or death. If you are currently indispensable, start training people now. One of the most rewarding forms of retirement is to own your own company and be absent as much as you like.

Give us a call for a complimentary, initial 60-minute consultation. You should interview us, as you would any professional, to determine if we will be a good long-term match for you and your business. If we don't have the answer to your problems, we will assist you in locating someone who does. We always welcome your questions.


When it comes to paying employees, laws and the IRS have made the payroll function a time-consuming nightmare for small business owners.

Small business owners spend an average of eight hours per month performing payroll functions. That's 12 full days a year that could be spent generating sales, prospecting new business opportunities, improving products or services or servicing customers.

Clergy payroll and income tax return preparation is a specialized area. There are payroll and tax rules in the IRS code that pertain only to clergy. A clergy's payroll IS NOT the same as a regular lay employee's payroll. It is very important that the person preparing church payroll and clergy tax returns understand these rules.

We offer payroll solutions that meet your business needs and enable you to spend time doing what you do best – running your company. Whether your business is for profit, nonprofit, agricultural, multi-state, etc. we can help you.
