If you own a business and file on a Schedule C, it may be advantageous to elect S-Corporation status. Depending on the circumstances, the election can save thousands of dollars in taxes each year. Since maintaining an S-Corp does incur additional administrative costs, we will analyze your situation to determine if the election would be beneficial for you overall.

We offer audit, review, and compilation services for a wide variety of businesses, including contractors, restaurants, resorts, condominium associations, non-profit organizations, and various other industries. From preparing financial statements to performing a full scale audit, we can customize our services to fit your needs.
