There are many reasons to hire a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), with one major reason being that many tend not to look forward to tax season. The company acknowledges that many people have faced horrific difficulties while attempting to sort their finances. When it comes to businesses, whether big or small, finances become even more complicated and stressful. This is where hiring a CPA comes into play. A client has no need to subject themselves to the stress and confusion when there are professionals, such as Gerlach, who will sort through their financials with efficiency and accuracy.

It does not matter if a client only needs help with their personal taxes, filing tax returns for their whole family or filing for their business. Gerlach and her team are prepared to handle each case. As opposed to using software, there are many benefits of hiring an accounting firm. First, even though the firm does offer tax services, they offer a far wider range of accounting services that are beneficial to a client. For example, the firm can help a client develop strategies for long term financial goals or help solve financial issues for their business.

If someone is opening a new business and has already secured the funds, one must then run this business. The firm’s website explains this scenario, stating, “Do you have a financial plan laid out that will cover expenses, make room for hidden expenditures and keep you going through early struggles? Oftentimes, new businesses don't have a strong foundation, simply due to their nature of how new they are. It can also be difficult to keep track of all of your financial information you'll want to have later on when you're #1 priority is just staying afloat and bringing in clients or customers. By working with a financial professional, you can make sure you're starting out on the right foot.” Learn more here: Carlsbad CPA Near Me.

Most people believe that, by hiring a CPA, the finances one may save through taxes will simply go towards paying for the services of the accountant. Gerlach and her firm are quick to dispel this belief as it is simply not true. While the firm does charge for their services, they are often able to save a client more money than they will be paying. This is because all members of the team are professionals with expertise in this field. They will find all possible deductions and ensure that a client will not overpay for their taxes. This means that not only will a client be spared the stress and effort, but there is a high chance that they will see an increase in their tax refund than if they had done it on their own.

A second benefit of hiring an accounting firm is that they can take care of a client’s accounting and bookkeeping. One may say goodbye to subjecting one of the individuals they employ to handling all the finances, as they can hire a CPA who has nearly 20 years of experience and expert knowledge to handle the matter professionally instead. Instead of feeling stuck with questions and feeling constantly unsure about whether or not each step is being taken correctly, one will have a resource that works for them. Hiring a CPA will let a person focus on running their business in the best ways possible, and the CPA will take care of all the accounting and the tax needs.

The third and most popular benefit of hiring an accountant is to simplify the tax return process. Gerlach and her team take a proactive approach to this process and will stay in contact with their clients throughout the year. This prevents the process from becoming overwhelming as they are constantly keeping records up to date. A client will also save time by handling things consistently throughout the year, rather than waiting until the last minute and attempting to provide all the necessary documentation. The firm also makes it a point to keep the client informed about all the work that is being done. To quote the firm’s website, “We believe in being completely transparent. At Candice Gerlach, CPA that's what professionalism means to us.”
