Services for Businesses

MinistryCPA serves business clients in the Watertown, Wisconsin, area and in distant U.S. states from the East Coast to the West Coast and on to Alaska. Secure, advanced technology enables us to deliver these services without sacrificing the relational mindset that governs our interactions with clients.

Business Advisors

We are entrepreneurs, experienced managers, and decisions makers ourselves. We understand and empathize with the challenges that both long-term vision and daily operations bring to the business leader.

  • business start-up
  • financing alternatives
  • business transition, employee benefits, and cash flow management are just a representative sample of the types of decisions that face our clients which we are privileged to serve daily

Tax Advisors

Planning and preparation of federal and state tax filings, including sole proprietorships, LLCs, partnerships, S-Corporations, and C-Corporations, represent a key opportunity for MinistryCPA to benefit our clients. Planning involves both multi-year and current year considerations. We represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service and state authorities.

Accounting Software

We install and trouble-shoot QuickBooks Online, Desktop and Enterprise software for transaction processing and decision making. GoToAssist, a cloud service of publicly traded LogMeIn, Inc., enables us to provide remote support and screen sharing collaboration with accounting people employed by our business clients. Numerous clients have invited us to join their QuickBooks Online groups.

Accounting Systems

Identifying and overcoming weaknesses in current accounting systems or implementing new systems has long been a critical need of the business clients we serve. These engagements include design and implementation of budgeting and forecasting mechanisms, internal control procedures, and financial analysis and reporting systems. We have designed an operational review template that enables us to work with our business clients to address agreed-upon priorities for accounting system investigation and improvement.

Financial Reporting

We analyze reports to internal and external parties for accuracy, decision making quality, and compliance with reporting standards.

Compensation Planning

Getting the most value for employer and employees by providing adequate and relevant compensation requires a good understanding of our clients’ objectives and the needs of their people.

Virtual Back Office Services

Using QuickBooks Online, we assist small business clients with transaction processing and government reporting. Often our small business clients do not have full-time staff with accounting software experience. We are able to fill that void and support bookkeeping people in the areas needed. Government compliance support and report preparation often accompany these services.
