Preparing Financial Statements for Your Business

Lewis.cpa has considerable experience working with plenty of company owners and leaders in making sure their financial statements are accurate and effective at minimizing taxes. Our industry experience in creating financial statements includes clients such as but certainly not limited to:

Smaller companies looking for growth might need investors and loans, and financial statements are crucial to landing both.

Not-for-profits face a different set of rules than many companies, and the right financial statements can help prove that you are, in fact, a not-for-profit instead of a for-profit enterprise.

If you work for or run a law firm, or you just work as an independent attorney, then you need to focus as much time as you can on generating billable money instead of doing financial paperwork. We can have a look at your latest financial statement and go from there.

Franchises are unique situations where you're simultaneously a standalone company but also part of a larger organization. This is an example of the type of client we thrive in working for.
