Small Business

The importance of maintaining a stable cash flow is something that every small business owner should understand. Cash flow can determines the success or failure of a small business more than any other factor. Your financial numbers can determine the progression or digression of a business so you need to make certain that every detail of budgeting and record-keeping is done right. This is why selecting the right accountant is a critical business decision.


A sound bookkeeping system is the foundation on which all of this valuable financial information can be built. Having an expert third-party review your records means you’ll be alerted to problems with your record-keeping methodology or just plain computational errors. Better to have your Accountant tell you this, rather than the IRS.


At Brinkley Financial,We remove the hassle and stress out of doing payroll. We will run payroll for all employees of your company or organization. State and federal withholdings will be paid to the proper tax agencies. We will file proper tax forms with their corresponding agency in a timely manner.  We offers comprehensive payroll services, including payroll processing, payroll tax administration, and employee pay services, including direct deposit and check signing.


Budgeting is an important component of financial success. It’s not difficult to implement, and it’s not just for people with limited funds. Budgeting makes it easier for people with incomes and expenses of all sizes to make conscious decisions about how they’d prefer to allocate their money. It can also help people save for retirement, emergencies, a new car or just about anything. For many people, having a solid budget in place, knowing how much money they have and knowing exactly where that money is going makes it easier for them to sleep at night.


As certified tax preparers we know our stuff and are held to a standard even higher than required by the IRS. We know the tax code better than others. We ask more of the right questions to find the credits and deductions you deserve and others miss.
