QUICK TIP: “If money can solve a problem, let it.”
“In 2004, I started my IT services company, Yamashita Solutions, LLC. My employees were located in [four states]. As a novice small business owner, I handled all the administrative tasks, including ‘tax accountant.’ As you might guess, I was completely unprepared and unaware of the tax filing requirements for each state. I also started a 401(k) plan for the company, and the reporting requirements for the matching contributions compounded my headaches. The result was an audit and a stream of notices of delinquent income reporting. On a recommendation from a friend, I contacted Don and asked about his services. During our initial interview, I was impressed by Don’s acumen and keen analysis as he asked very detailed questions about the company structure, the 401(k) plan, the revenue stream and expenses. … I entered into an agreement right then and there. Subsequently, he helped me establish a set of strict procedures to account for all revenues, expenses and estimated tax payments. Twelve years have passed, and it was one of my wisest moves.”
