Business Advisory Service

"Sometimes, it's not how much money you make, it's how much money you get to keep":- If you own a business, take a look at a situation that we have discovered. This is about TWO companies of Similar Size, operate in the same industry, in the same State/City; and in the same year:-

Company#1

Gross Annual Revenue    $920,250

Net Profit                          $598,163 (65% Profit).

Company #2

Gross Annual Revenue   $1,540,310

Net Profit                            $262,093 (17% Profit).

**NOTE:- Company #2 earned $620,060 more revenue than Company #1; and Company #2 has generated $336,070 less profit than Company#1. Isn't that interesting? Large companies are facing a similar situation. We are helping the owners of company #2 to benchmark the company and increase margins and profitability(Financial ratios V's Industry benchmark). They are being guided by a new vision and unifying goals; and we follow up with them monthly.

***(Financial ratios show how efficient and profitable they operate their companies when compared to their industry benchmarks).

 

Business Advisory Service

Small and Large Corporations are frequently confronted with this decision, "Buy v's Lease":-

A) Buy or Lease/Rent trucks and equipment.

B) Buy or Lease/Rent a building to house Offices, Workshop, Warehouse and/or Parking Garage.

***Both Leasing and Buying have Financial and Tax Benefits and Drawbacks (Pros & Cons)that are too numerous to discuss here. However, the reality is 65% of businesses lease/rent office space, building, vehicles, and equipment because:-

1)Leasing is more financially feasible for them.("Law Firms leasing doubles in NY City", Crains New York Business, Page 06, October 25, 2021).

2)Vendors prefer to lease/rent their equipment to business customers because leasing provides those vendors with a recurring income stream .

3)Landlords prefer to lease/rent their buildings to commercial tenants and passed on those buildings to their heirs (Estate Planning) instead of selling those buildings to their tenants/business owners.

4)There are NEVER enough commercial buildings available to sell to EVERY Small Business Owner or Major Corporation that wants to own a building to house their business operations. Hence, many of those corporations are located in High-rise buildings (office towers) in cities in almost every country.

Cleints' Testimonials

"Thanks for filing the tax returns for my Mail Order Distribution company. It was not as simple as I thought.

"BIG MISTAKE!! Over the years I paid a lot of income taxes because I allowed the people who filed my fleet fuel tax reports prepared my business tax returns.

"My personal and business tax returns are complex, and I needed a Tax Accountant. I received numerous referrals; but I am very picky/fastidious. Every time I researched and reviewed my list of prospects and their customers' experiences, your name kept coming up. That's why I contacted you and send you my documents. I'm glad I trusted you. Great results. Thank you!" - J. Morrison, (Business Owner), Manhattan, N.Y.

I like that".- Capt., Samuel, K  (Jacksonville, FL).

"The Shipping Company we inherited were in total disarray. Barry helped us reorganized it and make it efficient and profitable.

We stopped paying high overdraft fees; and the bank has increased our revolving line of credit."- Andre, Julian & Mindy Roache, Owners, Brooklyn & Queens, New York.

 

"Our Construction company was under investigation because we didn't file tax returns and pay the sales and payroll taxes. We called several accountants who used to solicit us for business, but they were too busy attending to their regular clients. We found Barry's Accounting Services listing in our local newspaper. We called Barry and we agreed to provide him with the information he requested. We paid $8,226 less in penalties and interest. Our financial affairs are finally back on track and we are happy. Thanks, Barry."- Leo & Jane Robinson, Owners, Jamaica, New York.
