This has been a busy year for all of us!
We have changed the name of our firm to GP CPA, P.C. effective March 2019. “Gary M Prusiensky, CPA, P.C.” and “GMP CPA” had a substantial overlap on Google search with another CPA firm in Texas and we needed to act before Google acted for us. Like some of the big CPA firms (KPMG, E&Y, PWC) we have adopted the initials of our founder (two big thumbs up to Gary!) and made it easier to pronounce and say our firm name. To those clients who have managed to get by without attempting to pronounce our last name all these years, you are safe now.
As many of our clients have found out, we text. Besides using email and calling us, you are more than welcome to text us @ 910-304-0262. This text number is shared across our office and comes through to our emails and phones and is often the best way to get in touch quickly. For security purposes, the 910-304-0262 number is NOT able to accept images, so text (literally, letters and numbers only) is the only thing will come through. If you need to send us a picture of a document or scanned image, please continue to use email.
We are excited to announce that GP CPA will be featuring cash flow analysis and forecasting with Futurli, currently the best small business analytics platform on the market.
We are saying goodbye to spreadsheets and hello to real time updates on long term projections and visualizations of how to meet financial goals. If this sounds like gobbledygook or really complicated, it was… until Futurli was added to the mix. You have goals and targets that you want to meet (retirement anyone?) and GP CPA + Futurli will get you there. Let’s look at your business in 1, 3, or 5 years and see how to get there starting today.
GP CPA has goals, too. We currently have less than 50 reviews on Google and are looking to hit that target by year end (Justin’s future in the firm depends on it!) If you have a moment, we kindly encourage you to leave us a review on Google. Like your business, many of our newer clients have found us via the positive reviews left online and it would help us grow with our clients by adding to our positive review count. Clicking here will get you started.
Sales Tax Checkup
The NC Department of Revenue has been busy with enforcement actions (audits) since the last major sales tax law changes from 2017. As you already know, nearly all labor charges related to services, auto repair, HVAC, plumbing, electricians, and many types of contractors are all subject to the same sales taxes as parts. There is no better time than now for a sales tax review to see if your business is in compliance. Sales tax law does not have a “gray area” and the only help available for sales tax errors or issues is before the state takes a closer look. Contact Gary or Justin today for any and all Sales Tax inquiries.
Onward and upward!
