Yesterday a package arrived at our office from the Utah Jazz organization. Inside the package was an official NBA jersey celebrating our achievement of making the Inc. 5000 list last September. Of the 5000 fastest growing companies in the US, Inc Magazine ranked Valentine CPA number 2,327.
The Inc 5000 is an annual list of the fastest growing companies in the United States. All 5000 of the companies are listed in the September issue of Inc Magazine. The ranking is determined by the percentage of growth from the prior year.
Our growth came from our increase in payroll services. Our clients like our prompt attention to the complicated accounting discipline of payroll processing. We feel that a CPA firm is the most qualified organization to work with the tax reporting requirements of processing payroll. Payroll is not just figuring out the net payroll checks (that is the easy part) but keeping up with all aspects of government compliance and reporting requirements. When looking for a payroll service, you should ask the following questions of the person preforming the service (not the salesperson representing the company): • How are problems resolved?
• Are telephones answered live and can I speak with someone who can answer questions?
• If a mistake is made, will you amend the quarterly filing?
• Are taxes remitted directly to the taxing authorities?
• Is the work guaranteed?
• Is the company keeping up with new government requirements?
