A Strategic Business Plan is much more than a tool to obtain financing. If you still have all your plans and ideas locked up inside your head, preparing a strategic plan can help you clarify your company's direction. It can ensure that your key leaders are all on the same page, and keeps both management and staff focused on the tasks at hand.

A Strategic Plan is often needed when...

  • Starting a new venture, product or service

  • Expanding a current organization, product or service

  • Buying a new business, product or service

  • Turning around a declining business

The Strategic Plan provides a blueprint, describing your company, its products, the competitive environment, management team, financial health, and business risks.

The plan allows you to...

  1. Identify and describe the target customer profile, features, advantages and benefits of your new venture, product or service.

  2. Justify that your plans are credible by fully researching the need being filled with your new venture.

  3. Develop marketing plans including full descriptions of targeted promotional campaigns with implementation timelines. You also get to examine market conditions, the nature of your customers, as well as your competitors, sales potential, and projected results of your promotional campaigns.

  4. Develop staffing plans including identifying the key players, skills, attitudes and expertise needed to build the venture.

  5. Develop management plans including full descriptions of management systems and timelines for implementation.

  6. Develop financial plans including projected startup costs, operating costs, revenue, profits, and break-even analysis for the first 3 to 5 years.

    Projected financial plans allow you to effectively predict upcoming problems, or prevent them. In other words, the perspective gained through your Strategic Business Plan can make a significant contribution to your company's success, and help you get the funding you require. In fact, most lending institutions and private investors will not even talk to you without a solid financial plan.

  7. Identify building and equipment needs including vendors and cost estimates.

  8. Formulate company milestones including timelines for upcoming products and services in development.

Remember: Failing to plan is planning to fail.

Let us help you develop a powerful Strategic Business Plan that drives your business to the level of success you deserve.

Most commonly looks like, "can I deduct my home, can I pay my children, should I buy equipment, should I track mileage, etc." This is a service that is sometimes addressed by phone calls to the office and/or emails. Often times it's with an associate or staff member in our office. It can also be something addressed and finalized in an annual office meeting. Different strokes for different folks, but we are capturing what "most" business clients are availing themselves of in this area.
Includes Federal and State vouchers based on safe harbor provisions of estimated tax payments. It uses prior year data to help avoid interest and penalties. It is worked on during your 2018 tax prep meetings.
Common in our practice. Many of our business client owners want us to run projections, using very detailed versions of what they think their personal return will look like, in it's entirety. Most commonly done in our office, with a tax manager or myself.
Most commonly looks like a before and after dog and pony show that illustrates the benefits of making retirement contributions and more importantly, structuring a plan for funding the contribution over a more manageable time frame.
The corporate fee includes all applicable schedules including partner K-1s.
We include one owner tax prep and for any additional owners we would offer a bundled fee of 75% of full price.
Our Valued Price Agreements allows our clients to lock in monthly, quarterly or annual billings that even out cash flow.
It is not a popular service within our firm because of a number of online tools but we do offer it at $75 per filing period (monthly, quarterly etc.). We have empowered our clients to take this role on themselves but we are happy to address in our annual office meeting.
We took time to review our previous billing methods, and to better serve our corporate level clients, have embraced a method that allows us to fix our annual fees. That method is based on the value of those services and the costs we incur, providing them.
Individual returns start at $550 and includes Schedule A, B 2441(Child Care Expenses) and one state return. Any additional schedules range from $50 - $100.
