Client Accounting Services
As a business owner, you have more important things to do than keep your books or manage your accounting department. As a business leader, you need information that’s timely and relevant to drive the decisions you make every day. Our client accounting services (CAS) practice addresses that need by leveraging best-in-class technologies to deliver customized accounting, finance, and operational assistance.
Whether we're working on an audit, a review, or a compilation, our risk-based approach to financial reporting begins with gaining an understanding of your business operations, risks, and internal control environment. We use our industry knowledge in tailoring audit plans and review processes so that we focus our efforts on the accounting issues that are most relevant to your business. At the core of our commitment to client service is open communication. In contrast to other firms, we manage our engagements with senior resources, which we believe enhances the efficiency of our engagements.
Trust & Estate
An estate plan plays an essential role in preserving wealth for the future. As experienced financial professionals, we work with your attorney to create estate plans for individuals and business owners to safeguard their wealth. Tax and Trust planning strategies are employed to ensure that your goals are met with your estate plan while keeping taxes as low as possible. Funds and assets should be transferred according to your instructions; we assist in letting you know the tax consequences of the various ways to accomplish your goals.
Due Diligence Reports
Lenders, creditors, and equity investors make critical decisions with each capital commitment – decisions that can put the entire funded amount at risk. VaughnCPA assesses the likelihood that a company will generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations & analyze a company’s cash flow and collateral support for lenders. VaughnCPA Due Diligence Services ensure that a disciplined and comprehensive evaluation is conducted before the money goes out the door.
Criminal Tax Matters
Accounting concepts are a foreign language to some lawyers in almost all cases, and to almost all lawyers in some cases. The presence of an accountant is necessary or at least highly useful, while the client is relating a complicated tax story to the lawyer, for the effective consultation between the client and the lawyer which the privilege is designed to permit.
Fraud & Forensic
We use accounting and auditing skills to provide an analysis of financial records in conjunction with knowledge of marital dissolutions, support issues, spending patterns, tracing issues, business and family dispute resolutions, as well as fraud and theft investigations. Our expertise and the use of available methods can determine the amount of income or the value of a business as well as the extent of financial loss or damages.
Our experienced personnel has been preparing Individual, Business & Non-Profit taxes for years. The business and laws have changed, but the judgment required to prepare and plan only improves with experience accurately. Every year we organize more than 1000 individual, corporate, partnership, and business tax returns. Business planning, consulting, and coaching goes hand in hand with proper accounting and tax preparation.
