Accounting & Bookkeeping
Relieve your curiosity (I wonder how much I'm making? Where am I at on cash flow? How will I do if I continue with my current plan?).
Small businesses depend on complete, accurate and up-to-date information in order to make good business decisions. Because the outcome depends on the quality of the input, Private Accounting will work with you, not just for you, to develop the accuracy and completeness of the data that we use to report results of your operations, cash flow and financial position. We will help you with a business plan that is written using the same rules as we use for accounting, making comparisons and cash planning meaningful. We can be as involved in the "daily work" processing of your data as you desire, from doing all of your accounting to just a quarterly review of your bookkeeping procedures and results. Cash, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Assets and debts of your business will always be reconciled and up-to-date. This will give you confidence in using your accounting data to make good business decisions.
Because Private Accounting uses the Quickbooks ProAdvisor program, you can be sure that the expertise that is necessary to ensure effective selection, setup and training in using your software is available to you. Mike Johnson has had many roles in the accounting industry, and is an expert in using many software platforms for accounting, reporting, compliance, and client service.
Modern, up-to-date technology is used to ensure that we use as little paper as possible, while securing your data in the clouds so that only you and your accountant can gain access to your accounting data. It can never be lost, stolen or accidentally destroyed.
Be as involved or as hands off as you want to be. Private can work within your existing payroll procedures or completely outsource the payroll function, with many possibilities and levels of control in between these two alternatives. In any case, our goal is to reduce your concerns about the payroll function, giving you time to devote to other areas of your business and personal life.
Finance & Compliance
_Analyze and project cash flow, and create business plans that describe your visions for fund raising and budgeting. Manage customer relationships and receivables, as well as vendors and accounts payable. Private is considered to be an expert in the use of MSOffice products such as Word and Excel, as well as Android office products.
Income tax law goes through many changes every year. The possibilities and strategies to optimize your tax expenses can be confusing and those inevitable changes can make the planning process difficult at best. Private Accounting works hard and effectively in managing these constantly shifting sands, with the goal of minimizing both your business and personal income tax burdens.
Working with a tax professional is the first and best step toward freedom from the never-ending task of the planning-to-reporting cycle for all of the municipalities that tax you or your business. Private Accounting is a member of NATP, the National Association of Tax Professionals, and the Arizona NATP. This is an association for keeping its members up to date and also provides services such as income tax research on topics that fall into gray areas. The owner of Private Accounting, Mike Johnson, is one of the first tax preparers in Arizona to be registered with the IRS as a Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP).
Let Private Accounting do all of the research for you and work with you to stay informed about matters that affect your income taxes. We use online cloud technology for all of your tax processing and tax data, with access to your information granted to only you and your tax professional. The preparation is done with a secure, online service that is more secure than having your data sit on an accountant's system. Your data can't be compromised, lost or stolen. This provides that higher degree of confidentiality that you desire for such sensitive information.
Private Accounting goes beyond the task of reporting this year's income and taxes due. Private can also provide you with access to an attorney for such tax-related services as preparation of a will, IRS audit representation, and identity theft protection. For businesses we can also provide you with access to business forms, business consultants and business and legal tax advice. These services can add value to your small business.

Protect Yourself and Your Family:
When you and your family need a doctor and medical care, you can get medical services without worrying about the cost because of medical insurance. After all, who could afford to pay a doctor by the hour, or pay for medical services at clinics, labs and hospitals? Instead, you pay a cheaper price monthly to gain access to the medical system.
So why go unprotected from the cost of the legal system? After all, an individual in the United States is three times more likely to end up in court than to end up at the doctor. LegalShield is an array of legal protection services that are paid for with a low monthly charge. You get access to some of the best attorneys in Arizona.
Identity theft is the #1 crime against individuals in the US. Arizona has been especially hard hit. Identity Theft Shield can help in protecting you, your family or your business. There are other plans, but they cover only financial identity theft. But many other forms of this crime are proliferating, such as medical identity theft, a way to get medical care in your name, and legal identity theft. Imagine being arrested for outstanding warrants that you didn't even know anything about. There are 18 other varieties that you need to watch, so you can see that this goes far beyond credit reporting problems.
