Among the services we provide we can advise you on the right version of QuickBooks to purchase as well as help you set up and train you on how to use it. Or if you prefer to spend your time building your business and your profits; let us handle your bookkeeping, recordkeeping and report filing.

We can provide as many of the following services as you want:

-Entering your check stubs and deposits.
-Doing your bank reconciliations.
-"After-the-fact payroll", including quarterly and annual payroll tax reports.
-Providing balance sheets, income statements, and other financial statements.
-Preparing all required business tax reports and filings.

We will put together a custom list of services to fit your particular business needs.

Our job is to see that you pay no more tax than the law requires. We monitor the changes in the tax law that could affect you and recommend tax saving strategies. We will file all your tax returns and serve as your advocate in all tax matters.

Today's tax laws are so complicated that unless your financial affairs are extremely simple, chances are you will benefit from at least occasional help from a tax professional. It is too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled if you prepare only one return a year. Even the use of computer software is no substitute for the assistance of a seasoned tax preparer.

We prepare hundreds of tax returns every year. We know what to look for when your return is prepared. More importantly, you will have someone to answer your questions during the rest of the year.

We have used Pereira CPA's now for about 4 years. We were referred to them by a friend, when looking to switch accountants, and never looked back.

We even schedule a tax planning meeting each year to ensure we are positioning ourselves properly for the closing tax year.

Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. According to a study released by the US Government's General Accounting Office, most taxpayers (77% of 71 million taxpayers) believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer. Whether we like it or not, today's tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program there's no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.


Michael Gerber's The E-Myth Revisited should be required reading for anyone thinking about starting a business or for those who have already taken that fateful step. The title refers to the author's belief that entrepreneurs--typically brimming with good but distracting ideas--make poor business people. He establishes an incredibly organized and regimented plan, so that daily details are scripted, freeing the entrepreneur's mind to build the long-term success of the business. You don't need an M.B.A. to understand or follow its directives; Gerber takes time to explain buzzwords and complex theories.
