In 1979, Mal Blodget started a company called Blodget Builders, a remodeling and contracting firm in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. After several years as a contractor, he came to appreciate the many facets of running a business. With little knowledge of business management, he set out to learn as much as he could. Although experience proved invaluable, some business skills need to be learned. Seeing other companies struggle, Mal realized that good business decisions depend on a solid foundation in business management and accounting. Following this path, he earned two masters degrees and became a Certified Public Accountant.
Help for New Businesses
If you are a new business and wonder how you can get started, your search is over.
Try our New Business Checklist to see what you need to get done to comply with the law.
There are many state and federal requirements. This is the place to get started.
Affordable payroll help
Consider getting help for your payroll needs.
While it is possible to do this "in house" (by you or an employee), getting professional help will save you significant time and money. Let us take care of the details while you take care of your business.
Support for QuickBooks Users
We offer an easy way for QuickBooks users to stay on track.
Many firms offer support for QuickBooks users. Usually this involves dropping off disks or emailing files. This can create problems such as lost, duplicate or overwritten files.
Our method is a safe, convenient way for our clients to get us their QuickBooks file.
This also allows us to make changes to your QuickBooks file and get it back to you safely and easily.
All you need is an internet connection. This is not an email program but is a safe, encrypted way of transferring your file(s) over the Internet.
Financial statements can provide a small business the necessary financial information for loan applications and tax return preparation. Even if you have a current accounting system, adjustments are usually necessary to bring the financial statements in compliance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
While some people try completing their own tax return, the complexity can be overwhelming. We usually do several amended returns each year to correct returns that were self prepared. In most cases the savings would have more than paid for the cost of preparation.
IRS Problem Solving
Get the IRS off your back! These problems will never go away. Many issues and outstanding balances can be cleared up easily. In some circumstances, outstanding balances might be settled for considerably less than what is owed. We are able to act on your behalf getting you the best possible resolution.
Accounting System Setup and Support
We offer QuickBooks installation, setup and support. Here is where a small investment early in the process really pays off. We see a lot of QuickBooks files that have gotton off track. Sometimes many hours of data entry work are done with little benefit to the business owner. When your starting out with a new accounting system such as QuickBooks, it pays to have it set up properly. Accounting system setup can be as little as $450 and monthly support plans start at $60 per month.
Management Advisory Services
Management advice can be an inexpensive way to help with decisions that most businesses face. These decisions can provide long term benefits. Sometimes "flying by the seat of your pants" can cost you dearly. We have helped many businesses face critical decisions that will shape their outlook for years to come. Some questions you might be asking yourself are: "Why is it that we never get ahead?" "We can't keep up with our workload, should we hire more help?" "Could an investment in equipment or buildings provide the edge we need?" "Should we lease or buy equipment?" Let us help you see these issues from new perspective. Sometimes the decision is easy when you have all the necessary information.
