Congratulations! You are navigating your way through the exciting world of business ownership and we are here to provide you with the customized small business solutions that will be the groundwork for your roadmap to success.

Initial Setup

We can help you set up your new company with New York State as a Sole Proprietorship, an LLC (Limited Liability Corporation), S Corporation or C Corporation.

A corporation is a legal entity separate and distinct from the individual(s) who compose the business. It has rights and abilities similar to those of a natural person. Principal features are perpetual duration, limited liability and easy transferability of interests.

A business corporation may be formed by filing a Certificate of Incorporation pursuant to Section 402 of the Business Corporation Law.

Profit & Loss (P&L) Statements

This report tells the business owner how the company Is doing. The report details income, minus expenses and gives you the net profit over a specific period of time. Each category is listed, allowing a quick analysis of where the money is coming from and where it is going. We can also give you comparative reports. This will give the business owner control of their expenditures and determine if more or less money should be spent in a particular category, for example:

Are we spending enough on advertising?
Can we afford to hire a new employee?
Can we afford to purchase new equipment?
Can we afford to purchase real estate or move to larger space?
Where can we cut expenses?

Your financial accountant or CPA will need the company profit and loss statement at year end to prepare both your corporate tax returns and you personal tax returns.

General Ledger

The General Ledger is used to prepare financial statements and is also a means to discover fraud.

This is “the books” of your business.  Every financial transaction flows through the General Ledger and is a permanent record.  It is a listing of all of the company’s assets, liabilities, owner’s equity, revenues and expenses.

It is a permanent summary of all your accounts. At the end of the company’s fiscal year, the General Ledger must balance in order to “close the books” to prepare tax returns. 

Balance Sheet

The Balance Sheet is a report of the business as of a specific date.  This is of particular interest to lenders and creditors in determining the credit worthiness of a company.  This report lists the company’s assets, liabilities and owner’s equity.

  • 02 January Najlepszy Prawnik Wałbrzych zajmuje się problemami zwykłych ludzi

    Witamy Państwa serdecznie na płaszczyźnie internetowej naszej Kancelarii Adwokackiej i wołamy do zastosowania z udzielanych przez nas usług. Z przyczynie Dnia Blogów (31.08.2015 r.) zak­tu­ali­zo­wałem ze­sta­wienie wpisów do­ty­czą­cych praw­nych aspektów blo­go­wania, które zamieścił na blogu w prze­ciągu mało dwóch lat. Ile osób po wejściu tych przepisów zapomniało i zlikwiduje pozycje, przez ostatnie iż nie posiada teraz prawa jazdy. Już się ktoś odezwie, że podejmowanie prawa jazdy za jazde po pijaku jest przegięciem, bowiem każdy ceni sobie wypić. Art.77.1.Każdy stanowi prawo do pokrycia szkody, która zostawiłam mu zrobiona przez różne z uprawnieniem działanie organu administracji państwowej. Piękne puste trzy pasy odizolowane od stylu pieszego, i że stanowi adwokat wałbrzych wówczas aleja w miasteczku widoczne ograniczenie 80km/h.

    Adwokat Piotr Waśko podejmuje w jakikolwiek wtorek i czwartek, po wcześniejszym telefonicznym ustaleniu czasu spotkania. W przykładu stwierdzenia przez sąd zakazu kierowania pojazdów tylko pewnego stylu, organ władz państwowej jest wdzięczny wydać (zwrócić) osobie, wobec której stwierdzono taki zakaz, prawo jazdy kategorii, której ten nakaz nie obejmuje, skoro je teraz była.
    I na obecny skuter aktualnie będą wsiadać Wasi synowie i córki, również będą się uczyć jazdy na ostatnich jednośladach metodą prób i błędów między innymi kierowcami. Bezpieczniej będzie gdyby mieszkańce będą prowadzić 125ccm z rozporządzeniem drogi niż 50ccm bez dobra podróże zaś na smak max 45km/h. Będąc prawo jazdy zawodowe pd 24 lat nie wyjdę na koszt I żebym z pozostała się uczyć nauk i zostawiać test na maszynie pojemności 600cm i zdolności 45- czy 50km. Od stycznia 2013 aby jeździć skuterem musisz zorganizować prawo jazdy kategori AM (dozwolone od 14 roku bycia) czy nosić pewne własne prawo jazdy.
