Enns & Associates, Inc. offers a focused range of services to our individual and business clients. Because our firm is small, our clients benefit by getting personalized, quality service by professionals who truly care about the people we get to work with. We deliberately do not offer the wider range of services typically offered by many accounting firms. We have chosen specific areas of emphasis to place our focus and energy rather than being mediocre at a large number of service types. This means we emphasize the use of other qualified professionals such as attorneys, financial and insurance professionals, and other accounting firms for the various services needed by our clients. The following list represents our areas of focus:
We can help with the installation, setup, training and ongoing support for QuickBooks accounting software. We emphasize a training and ongoing assistance process with previously untrained bookkeepers. Our goal is to teach the bookkeepers how to continually improve their accounting competence and the quality of the client accounting records. We emphasize the use of remote access software to assist in the support process to provide efficient and effective accounting assistance to these clients.
Outsourced Accounting Services
We provide outsourced accounting/bookkeeping services where the client desires to have some or all of their accounting functions performed outside of their office. These services are customized to the individual client's needs. We can also provide client computer access to their accounting records for their review 24/7.
Tax Planning and Preparation
Tax planning and preparation is an integral part of our service menu. We emphasize long term planning to try and minimize tax liability over more than just one year. We also take a practical approach to this area and utilize strategies that are as simple as possible, but yet effective. The emphasis on strong accounting systems is a vital part of the planning and preparation process for our business clients. This makes for better tax planning and management decisions as well as providing a more efficient tax preparation process. It also provides stronger support in the event of an examination by a taxing authority.
Estate and Trust Tax Preparation, Planning and Accounting
We strongly believe in utilizing a team approach when working in this area. Your attorney, financial advisor and insurance professional should all be involved. Effective estate and gift planning facilitates the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, provides security for your surviving spouse, and can reduce or eliminate transfer (estate/gift) taxes due on the transfer of your business and other assets. We emphasize a practical approach to this process that tries to find simple yet effective solutions that clients can understand.
