The 2018 filing season is in full swing, which means most CPA’s don’t see family, friends, or daylight until sometime after April.

The big focus this year has been on refunds, which were expected to be quite a bit different this year due to the changes that happened last year. A lot of taxpayers are finding reduced refunds or other surprises this year, for many different reasons. There are two basic ways to look at the 2018 refund situation, either you received more money each month in your paycheck and less of a refund; or that refunds are interest fee loans from you to Uncle Sam. No matter which camp you side with, if you are a business owner (especially one with an ), then there is virtually no excuse for a surprise at tax filing time. clients know where they stand throughout the year, and it makes tax time less stressful and nearly uneventful for them. If your CPA is not using Xero to keep track of your business and Gusto for payroll processing, then not only are you paying for inefficiencies but how are they getting you timely information?

Switching to for your and tax needs will not only save you valuable time and money but is generally a long term investment in your business. At , even though we rely on software, it’s our people that count. Come say hello, Charlotte is nice this time of year.

This firm is absolutely the best that I've dealt with when it comes to CPAs and financial advice. I'd gone to another CPA in the area for help with my small business during tax time, they stopped communicating and I was left with important documentation not filed and a lot of anxiety around what to do. My appointment with Justin was set up quickly and I was in within a couple days to sit down with him. When you first meet him, you get the impression that he's incredibly intelligent and knows what he's talking about. He took the time to me through each and every step that I needed to take to move forward and actually ended up saving me money. I am so grateful to him for his knowledge and professionalism. Total life saver! If you're a small business owner, you should not be taking your time, money or business anywhere else but GP CPA and their crew 🙂read more

My partner and I started our very first small business last year. Justin has been a blessing to us. Being new at all of this, we didn’t understand much of how business work. Justin explained and answer all of questions that we have. He took care of everything for us throughout the year and have made life so much easier for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better CPA. Highly recommended!read more
