Why the CPA Firms mustn’t delay & file today?

It’s an annual occurrence, it’s inevitable, yet somehow the CPA firms are never fully prepared for it. Tax preparation & filing, in fact any corporate accounting process for that matter, isn’t something that can be wrapped up in a month or two. Yet, it’s always the dreaded rubbernecking deadline that makes CPA businesses rush their clients’ tax returns. The pressure of imminent deadline results in errors, which at times are damaging for the business. It even can cause your clients penalties, excess tax, or even worse, not enough tax.

When it comes to tax preparation, accounting, & bookkeeping services, it’s a given that different CPA firms will have different needs. So, it’s only fair on your part to identify your business needs in terms of tax preparation outsourcing in advance.
