Holidays are perfect days to set a festive scene:
From giving thanks, to New Year’s Eve, and all that’s in between.
For family and friends, and really, everyone you meet,
This joyous time of year is one we know is pretty sweet.
Ever notice how the people who most need professional advice are the ones who think they don’t?
Teenagers are perhaps at the top of this long list. “Mo-o-o-om! I don’t need you to tell me what to wear!”
(This might explain what you see teenagers wearing at the stores this holiday season.)
This time of year, everyone’s talking about spooky stuff, naturally. The last thing any of us needs is another Halloween-related newsletter.
So here it is.
Each client of your Friendly Bean Counter (FBC) (me) has their own horrors – scary stuff that’s specific to their own business or industry:
Your Friendly Bean Counter (FBC) keeps the books for a nice man named Brodie, whose primary business is a mobile dog grooming company, and whose primary name is not really Brodie.
The other day, Brodie called me up to talk about some major capital expenditures he’d been saving up to make, and he wanted my expert and friendly Bean Counting advice on timing the purchases for optimization of his tax bill. This is a pretty common topic during the later part of the calendar year.
“I need one more van,” he said. “Also, I’d like to open up a dance club.”
The van, I get. But the dance club?
“Dance club?” I said. “How does that fit into your dog grooming business model?”
Charm And Good Looks Won’t Impress The Tax Man
Bean There, Done That
Monthly Bookkeeping Wisdom From Your Friendly Bean-Counter
The top question people ask your Friendly Bean Counter (FBC) all the time is: “How can your staff be so talented, and charming, and efficient, all while being so disarmingly attractive?”
Probably the Number Two Question we get is “Is this too late?”
The answers to both of these questions is usually “yes,” but another top question we get is “Do you know anybody who does (X WORK).”
And the answer there is almost always “yes,” as well, because your FBC has an extensive network of professionals who do just about any X WORK your business might need.
We cherish our many wonderful clients, who trust us to keep their books sharply up-do-date and accurate, not to mention compliant with all industry standards, as well as highly data-secure, all while being disarmingly attractive.
