Case Study - The Pitfalls of Clinging to In-House Accounting
A recent US survey showed that 31% of small businesses still keep track of their books on Excel spreadsheets. However, this reporting method was almost four times more prone to human error and potential tax problems down the road. The number one reason given for sticking to these methods was the cost of hiring an accountant.
Interestingly enough, the study also found that companies spent up to 55% more in labor keeping their own books. Switching to 21st century bookkeeping and payroll offered an average savings of 24% while saving employees almost ten man hours per week.

Myth-Filing for Tax Extensions Increases Audit Chances
Does the IRS become suspicious when you ask for more time to file your taxes? Absolutely not. Businesses have hundreds of legitimate reasons why they can’t meet the April 15th deadline. Filing for an extension shows that employers are committed to filing their taxes accurately, which actually decreases the chances of an audit.
The truth is that over 10 million businesses and taxpayers are granted six-month filing extensions every year. This actually helps the IRS during the peak season and there is absolutely no evidence of late filers being audited more often. This myth is 100% busted.
