Ryan Accounting and Tax Preparation

Bookkeeping and IRS Representation

Balance Your Books

Our firm believes that business owners should focus primarily on what they do best, then hire outside experts to do the rest. It's clearly the best way to maximize your profits and overall efficiency.

After all, why would you spend your valuable time and talent doing something you likely don't enjoy when a professional bookkeeper can make it a quick and painless experience.

So, if your books are a mess and the paperwork is piling up simply because you've been too busy out making money and bringing in new clients, don't worry about it, we can help.

Personal Tax Returns

With 30 years of experience in preparing everything from a 1040EZ to a 1040 with multiple schedules, it is our goal to assist you in filing an accurate income tax return while taking advantage of every allowable deduction.

We look forward to your tax appointment visit so we can discuss upcoming life changes such as a new baby, a different career, marriage/divorce, or early retirement.

Any one of these events can have a significant impact on your tax liability and it’s always better to be prepared than unpleasantly surprised.

Certified Payroll Processing

There are numerous Payroll Services out there but if you prefer the personal touch, call us.

We can handle your weekly, biweekly, or monthly payroll including processing and printing paychecks, remitting state and federal tax liabilities electronically, and preparing of Forms 941, NYS-45.

We will also generate and submit W2s for the employees in your business at year end.

External Audits

If you have your own bookkeeper handling the finances of your company or non-profit but something just doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t.

Call us if you need someone outside your organization to review the numbers and processes.

No one is suggesting that you might be a potential victim of embezzlement but, as the saying goes, "Trust, but verify."

Business Consulting

Thinking of starting a business or tempted to invest your savings in some online "get rich quick” program?

Please, before you write that check, let's sit down to discuss the potential pitfalls you might encounter.

Our fraud awareness experts will try to help make sure it’s not a financial scam seeking to make you their next victim.

IRS Representation

Enrolled Agents are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation with unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS.

As an Enrolled Agent since 1991, I specialize in helping people and companies who have either not filed their taxes or have been informed their tax return is being examined by the Internal Revenue Service.

General Bookkeeping

Are you the owner of a small business with no desire to even look at an accounting program? Or perhaps a larger business who has lost their in-house bookkeeper due to retirement or unforeseen circumstances?

We may be able to help, even if only on a temporary basis.

We are experienced in all aspects of bookkeeping including Certified Payroll and MWBE (Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise) reporting, Union remittances, general and specialized invoicing, and NYS Department of Labor and Workers Compensation audits.

Bank Account Reconciliation

The cornerstone of any successful small business is its bank account.

Monthly reconciliations are crucial to identify lost checks, missing deposits, unauthorized debits and in the extreme case, embezzlement.

A properly completed bank reconciliation and accompanying Profit & Loss Statement and Balance Sheet will give you a clear picture of how your business is actually doing financially.

Business Tax Returns

We can prepare any and all business tax returns including Schedule Cs for sole proprietors, Form 1065 for partnerships, and 1120 or 1120S for corporations.

We'll visit your business to collect the documents necessary to prepare and submit your taxes and will discuss ways to improve your record-keeping for potential tax savings.

State / Federal Taxes

New York State Sales Tax is due quarterly and it's not something you want to mess around with, even if you feel confident about handling your own basic accounting needs.

Business clients come to us with their sales figures so that we can calculate what’s taxable and non-taxable and then file their returns electronically.

AIA Contractor Billings

Most general contractors, and even subcontractors working on larger construction projects, are required to have their progress billing invoices prepared and submitted in AIA format (American Institute of Architects) if they wish to get paid.

We use a specialized accounting software program dedicated to producing compliant paperwork in the form of an AIA G-702 - Application for Payment and G-703 - Continuation sheet for your business.

Special Reporting Needs

We are experienced in MWBE (Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise) reporting, union dues remittances, and both general and specialized invoicing.
