Compilations and Audit Preparation

A Compilation

A compilation involves an accountant preparing, or assisting in preparing, financial statements without expressing any assurances that the statements are accurate, complete, and/or in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Unlike a review, few, if any, procedures are performed.

Audit Preparation Assistance

An audit is a formal examination of an organization’s accounts or financial situation. It is the top level of investigation performed on a business’ financial statement.  We can help your operation prepare for external financial or regulatory audits. We will work with your internal management team to identify issues and develop and implement appropriate corrective action prior to your audit reviews. We will prepare and perform necessary testing as well as provide supporting documentation and work papers.

Payroll Services

Are you considering outsourcing payroll? If so, you are not alone. Managing payroll is a time-consuming burden. Payroll is a necessary function of employing people, but it does not help create revenue or increase sales. Simply, payroll is a drain on most employers’ resources.  Outsourcing payroll helps reduce costs and workload by freeing up time to take care of what’s really important: attending to your clients and growing your business.

 1.     Do you want to avoid paying IRS/State/Local tax penalties for a late or incorrect tax filing?
Did you know that 40% of small businesses pay an IRS penalty each year for late or incorrect tax fillings? We guarantee accurate and timely filling of your payroll taxes.

2.     Are you looking for ways to reduce back-office overhead?
The costs associated with processing payroll can be greatly reduced by outsourcing. We can assist with the reduction of back office expenses directly related to processing payroll.

3.     Are you looking for ways to increase productivity among your current staff?
Payroll management is a time-consuming process. By letting us remove this burden, your employees can focus on more value-added and revenue-generating activities.

4.     Do you worry your current payroll process is not capturing all the latest changes in payroll tax laws?
Payroll tax laws are ever-changing and failure to comply with these changes can result in penalties and inaccurate payroll. We will insure that your payroll is in compliance with the latest federal, state, and local tax laws.

5.     Do you have a contingency plan if something happens to your primary payroll person?
If the employees who processes payroll lands a new job or leaves the business, your company loses its payroll knowledge. By outsourcing with JFW Accounting Services you will maintain the payroll process continuity regardless of staff turnover.

Through our very solid partnership with Paychex, an international payroll processing company, we can streamline and manage your payroll and guarantee accurate and timely tax deposits and returns.  Additionally, we can process your payroll in-house utilizing QuickBooks Payroll.
