Dedicated to helping new business owners launch with confidence and clarity by offering Godwin (Re)Start-Up

No business owner should have to go it alone. That’s why we designed a special accounting, advisory, and tax services platform specifically for start-ups and businesses that just need to hit "refresh." Let us help you build a strong foundation by educating and advising you on several key areas of business start-up, including:

  • Entity type analysis—We’ll help you navigate which entity structure is right for your business as well as handle state and federal form preparation.
  • Accounting system setup—Our team will ensure that your accounting system is optimized to support a streamlined, efficient workflow before we begin assisting you with your monthly accounting. We will even help you build it from scratch if you like.
  • Retirement plan analysis—When the time is right, we’ll help you identify the best retirement plan for you and your employees…and one that doesn’t break the bank.
  • Tax Planning—We will work with you each quarter to ensure that you’re paying estimated taxes in the correct amounts, and also provide pro-active advice to mitigate your tax liabilities where possible.
