Business Services

The goal is to free you up to work on your business, not for your business.

Tax Preparation

We start by collecting your QuickBooks file so we can review the entire year. This helps us understand your business, allows us to make changes and return a clean accounting system file each year, and most importantly, gives us access to find areas for making tax saving changes. To our surprise, many other firms skip this imperative step of tax preparation and only prepare your tax returns from financial statements.

Tax Planing

Every accountant helps you to decide when to purchase a new piece of equipment, but do they dig deeper?

CFO Services

Small but growing businesses need CFO level services long before they can afford the $75,000 to $150,000 per year expense it would be to hire a full-time Controller or CFO. We fill this gap by immersing ourselves into your business and providing high-level financial consulting and business services on a part-time level for a fraction of the cost. CFO level services include:

  • Financial Forecasting and Budgeting
  • Cash Flow Management
  • Developing Internal Audit and Financial Control Policies
  • Training or Hiring Internal Accounting Staff
  • Strategic Planning
  • Assisting with Securing Outside Financing or Capital
  • Mergers & Acquisitions Advisory Services
  • Due Diligence
  • Succession Planning

Full Service Accounting

We handle the entire accounting cycle. Making deposits, paying bills, reconciling accounts, handling collections, and taking care of payroll. The goal is to free you up to work on your business, not for your business. While giving you the financial information you need to make management decisions. Like “outsourcing” your accounting team, but right here in the community.

    Benefits of Full Service Accounting:

    • Gaining a partner to help you understand the numbers driving your business
    • Real-time accessibility through cloud computing
    • Eliminating hiring costs and training time
  • Enhanced business continuity
  • Data security with continual on site and remote back-ups.

"DePauw Johnson, Inc. and their staff provide my business with payroll services, weekly bill-pay and deposits, bookkeeping, business and personal tax returns, and general business consulting. The help given has always been outstanding and the cost is fair and well worth the price.

Medical Web Experts has grown to include multiple locations including offices outside the United States, yet the output given from DePauw Johnson remains exceptional despite the distance between us. Their knowledge and use of technology is fundamental to us being able to work together efficiently and quickly without losing the personal touch that we need from a trusted resource."
