Accounting & Bookkeeping Services

As a small business owner, there will be times that you can certainly benefit from having a professional keep your books or provide other accounting and audit related services.  Allow our practice to take care of things for you so that you can get back to the job of running your business and generating profits.

​Each month or quarter we can do the following things and more for you:

  • Reconcile your bank and business credit card/line of credit accounts
  • Generate financial statements (Income Statement, Balance Sheet, etc.)
  • Clean up your general ledger and review for discrepancies such as double billings or unrecorded payments
  • Ensure that all capital assets are recorded and depreciating appropriately

These tasks for the solid foundation of your small business accounting system.  You can customize the package of services you receive by adding payroll, tax planning, tax preparation, or any of our other services.

Accounting & Bookkeeping Services

Payroll Processing and Compliance

Payments to employees are a heavily monitored area by the IRS, U.S. Social Security Administration, and other regulatory authorities.  Improperly classifying employees as independent contractors (1099 versus W-2 filings) or forgetting to make timely employment tax withholdings and deposits can be very costly mistakes for your business.  Let us help you stay on track of your filing deadlines and other requirements to ensure that you stay in compliance and have a much smoother process during tax season. Consider adding these services to your accounting, bookkeeping, or other services in one of our comprehensive service packages.


Stockholders, creditors, and private investors often need assurance that the financial statements accurately represent the true financial position of a company.  They all often have different levels of risk tolerance, so we provide three levels of assurance to meet your needs.
  • A compilation involves taking information provided by our clients and putting that data into the form of a financial statement. We express no opinion or assurance on the financial statements prepared.
  • A review is more detailed than a compilation, but not as extensive as an audit. A review of a company’s financial statements uses some analytical and inquiry procedures to give limited assurance.
  • An audit provides an independent analysis of a company’s financial position. Our work includes a review of internal controls, testing of selected transactions, and communication with third parties. Based on our findings, we issue a report on whether the financial statements are fairly stated and free of material misstatements.

Forensic Accounting

This is an area of accounting that investigates actual or anticipated disputes in areas such as

  • ​Fraud or misconduct in the form of employee theft of property, misappropriation (or stealing) of funds by employees, kickbacks (or bribes) to others outside of the business, and insurance or securities fraud;
  • ​Marital disputes in areas such as hidden assets;
  • ​Business economic losses in areas such as contract disputes, construction claims, expropriations, product liability claims, trademark and patent infringements, and losses stemming from an alleged breach of a non-compete agreement;
  • ​Disputes among shareholders or partners;
  • ​Insurance and/or Personal Injury Claims

​Let us apply our accounting knowledge and experience in the field to give you clarity in the areas of concern for your business. When you retain the services of FORBES Accounting & Consulting, Inc. we will skillfully assess the situation and offer suggestions for possible courses of action;  assist with the protection and recovery of assets;  coordinate with other experts, including private investigators, forensic document examiners, and consulting engineers;  and assist with any necessary civil action or criminal prosecution.

Internal Controls

At times you may need a trained outside professional to evaluate your company’s operations to determine if the appropriate controls are in place to ensure the proper handling of resources and to protect yourself from employee theft. We assess your internal control systems to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of your operating procedures.  Then we make recommendations that help your company become stronger and more profitable by advising you on how to correct any problem areas that we’ve found in your operation.
