Planning and Budgeting
Are you aware of how much it costs to operate your business each day? Do you know which services or products are your top performers?
If you are not aware of the factors that influence your business, then it’s time to realign your objectives with a fresh business plan. The decisions you make today will impact your ability to achieve future success. The team at Faulk & Winkler will work with you to interpret the numbers, evaluate your budget and compare your expectations to your actual performance. Using our industry knowledge and experience, we will design a plan to help you make your business more efficient.
Internal control studies provide opportunities to assess weaknesses, improve business processes and reduce the risk of fraud. Our team at Faulk & Winkler is trained to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your control system and offer suggestions to help your company operate more efficiently and meet expected goals.
We help to minimize surprises by:
Reviewing contracts and agreements with one or more third parties
Searching for better ways to manage risk, improve control effectiveness and improve process efficiency
Audit & Attestation
Climbing the mountain of endless paperwork can be daunting. Financial statements are one of the best ways to evaluate a business’s performance, but they can be difficult to comprehend. Audit, Review and Compilation are three distinct levels of service relating to financial statement reporting. These reports allow owners and investors to evaluate their business and guide them as they make management decisions.
Audit – An audit is necessary to attest to the accuracy of your company’s financial statements. The process involves a critical review and verification of financial information, providing the highest level of assurance on how your company is performing financially. While the audit is focused on the past, we assess your current procedures and processes to recommend practical suggestions to strengthen internal controls for your future operations.
Review – The objective of a review is to provide limited assurance to investors or banks that a company’s financial statements are satisfactory. At Faulk & Winkler, we use industry knowledge and analytical procedures to evaluate your business and provide a fair analysis.
Compilation – It is our practice to begin a compilation by gathering details about the industry and the client and then assessing the financial statements for material misstatements. Since a compilation is significantly less in scope than an audit or review, we render the financial statements to management without an opinion or assurance.
Tax Strategies and Compliance
It’s not how much you pay in taxes; it’s what you have left after taxes are paid. In order to achieve your business objectives, you need to balance your short-term burdens with your long-term business decisions. How you plan for and report your taxes can have a significant impact on your business.
At Faulk & Winkler, our goal as tax practitioners is to work closely with you throughout the year to create innovative and customized plans to minimize your tax liability. We believe in providing “strategic” tax compliance and consulting services that align with the needs of your business. Preparation of your tax return is the culmination of 12 months of activity and planning. As a result of our strategic planning process, we are positioned to prepare your return and close your compliance obligation.
The following is a list of tax services we provide to businesses and individuals:
Strategic tax planning
