Cruise and Associates: Business Services
To successfully run a business you need to know how to run your business efficiently. Statistics show six out of 10 new businesses fail within the first five years. A bankruptcy judge said 75 percent of business bankruptcies could have been prevented if a business owner kept proper records and received proper advice. In the early stages of business, owners need someone to guide them through the critical periods to help ensure they are managing expenses, handling sales growth and monitoring cash flow.
Business Services Available
Rent a Controller Program can provide you with all the services of an in-house bookkeeper, a corporate controller and an outside accounting firm for less than the cost of a part-time bookkeeper. We can handle all your accounting needs and even provide computer training for you and your staff.
Consulting Programs are tailored designed for you and your business. We don’t look strictly at your business and tell you what needs to be done. We look at the entire industry. We will work with you to help you manage your business more efficiently, more effectively and more profitably.
Accounting Services involve preparing monthly or quarterly customized financial statements for your specific business and industry. Most accountants try to group all businesses under one set of financial statements. This doesn’t work because all businesses are unique and not alike. We also will reconcile your bank account and help create a simple internal record keeping system.
Bookkeeping Services offer business owners the luxury of an in-house bookkeeper without the worries of having an employee call in sick or having to pay out benefits. We can take care of accounts payable and receivable, create invoices and send out statements, write checks, track vendor’s invoices and credits, and reconcile vendor statements. This frees the owners up from doing the tasks themselves or having to hire someone. Since the average business doesn’t need a full-time bookkeeper, we can give owners quality professional service without the difficulty of finding a qualified part-time bookkeepers.
Payroll Service can help you get it right the first time. A current report from the Government Accounting Office shows that the Internal Revenue Service penalized 34 percent of all employers who used the payroll depository system for incorrect or late payments of taxes owed. With our service, the only thing an employer has to do is figure hours and than fax, e-mail or call that information to our office. We process the payroll and print checks on checks we provide at no additional cost. This leaves the owners with the task of just signing the checks. The payroll service also includes handling the annual worker’s compensation audit at no extra cost. Our services aren’t limited to just Nebraska. We can take care of multi-state payrolls as well. In addition, our Tax Management Program tracks all payroll taxes, pays payroll taxes on the appropriate days, and files all payroll tax reports with federal, state and local agencies. We also provide copies of this information to the employers.
Software Consulting Services include a variety of programs. The two main programs we deal with are QuickBooks Pro and Peachtree for both DOS and Windows. We can install either one of these software programs and have the system up and running in a short period of time. Since we have more than 10 years experience working with QuickBooks Pro and Peachtree, we understand not only the programs but also the accounting aspect. Once the software is installed, we provide ongoing support, and don’t leave the employers to figure it out on their own.
