Business Start-Ups & QuickBooks

We are pleased to offer one-on-one advisory service to new business owners designed to assist them in mastering the complexities of the business start-up process. Helping new business owners to become successful and grow their enterprises into financially strong entities is one of the areas that we most enjoy at Smith and Associates. Part of this process usually includes the selection of the most advantageous entity to conduct business and the best methodology for maintaining complete and accurate financial records. This often includes initial setup, training and ongoing support in using the QuickBooks program, a service that we continue to make available throughout our clients' business cycles.

We are proud that our Peer Review ratings have been the highest possible during the past 18 years. An integral part of our audit services includes making positive suggestions and recommendations to improve our clients' accounting, recordkeeping or internal control system.

We also offer compilation and review services for our diverse clientele in Maine, New Hampshire and Florida.
