Employee paperwork, tax forms, payroll...it all becomes stress-free, thanks to Houston Small Business Services. Call 281-940-4727 today!

We calculate and pay sales and payroll taxes. We will prepare and distribute quarterly and year-end payroll forms, prepare and distribute 1099’s and prepare year-end income tax reports for your CPA.
We do not prepare income tax returns as this requires specific expertise from someone that specialized in this field.  We will however work with your CPA to ensure that they have all the information required to prepare your taxes accurately and in a timely manner.  If you choose to have an independent audit or review of your finances, we will work with your CPA to provide them with the information they need to ensure that your finances are in proper order.  Because of our experience in the corporate arena we have many years of experience completing financial audits and understand what they will not need to clean up your records.  Our response to their inquiry will be timely and we can even setup a system where they receive reports on a regular basis to review on your behalf.

Reporting

Upon setup we will work with you to determine which reports will help you make intelligent business decisions for growing your company.  We will also make recommendations in the future and keep you up to date on new information that is available due to QuickBooks upgrades.
We will prepare all the standard financial reports that you will need to make the important decisions that drive your business.  We will also customize advanced reports feared to your specific business.  These include a Balance Sheet, Profit and Loss Statement, Accounts Payable reports, Accounts Receivable Reports, Statement of Cash Flow.
We will help you understand these reports to better run your business.  You will be better able to manage productivity and customer satisfaction.

Banking and Credit Cards

We can download and record bank and credit card transactions for you.  Accounts are also reconciled each month and prepared for your review.  We will make recommendations for write-off and prepare cash flow reports.

By downloading instead of entering we automate as many processes as possible thus keeping your costs as low as possible.  This also speeds up the month end process and allows us to provide you with reports in a more timely manner.

As part of the reconciliation process we will review uncleared transactions to make sure we’re writing off transactions that will never clear the bank.  Bank reconciliation is a great way to help reduce risk of fraud.  Payee on cleared checks will be compared to the payee recorded in QuickBooks to ensure that the payee was not changed.
