Cheryl A. Reuter, EA has been a member of the PASBA Association since November 2004. Over the years the policy and procedures shared at the Association Conventions and Regional Meetings has been invaluable. Reuter Accounting & Tax Inc. is striving to instill the vision, values and systems of the PASBA Association into our practice. We look forward to sharing what we have learned to help your business become the success you desire.
Competence- Improving our knowledge base is one of our firm's key goals. We continually learn more to help our clients make and keep more of their money.
Teamwork- Team above self in all that we do. We cannot achieve our goals for our clients and our organization without each other.
Ethics- We will perform our duties understanding that our actions must pass the strictest scrutiny of our clients and our peers.
Caring- We are here to serve our clients. We will not do anything that would knowingly harm our clients.
Meaningful Value- Everything we do must have value to our clients beyond the fees that we charge them. We strive to provide the most value for the fees that we charge.
Accounting is really quite simple and straight-forward. You have money coming into your business in return for the goods and/or services you provide; and you have money going out of your business to pay for your materials, your employees, your equipment and physical facilities (i.e. the costs that you incur in providing those goods and services).
Unfortunately, when you throw in Inventory, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Depreciation, and a lot of the other time-related aspects of accounting that affect your financial reports, it just doesn't seem quite that simple.
But, when you own a business, accounting is something you have to do! Using a manual bookkeeping system can be frustrating and time-consuming, even if you have the background for it. A computerized accounting system, such as QuickBooks© or Peachtree Accounting©, can help. But it probably won't save you much time. And it won't turn you into an accountant any more than purchasing a computerized design or CAD system will turn you into an architect or engineer. In fact, without proper setup and installation, computerized accounting systems often leave you just as confused, but at a much lower level of detail.
To manage your business profitably, you need the right financial data, advice and services. But you may not have knowledge or ability to do it all yourself -- and if you do, that still might not be the best or most profitable use of your time. Our accounting firms can provide you with the accounting, consulting, payroll, tax services, and other business services you need to profitably manage and grow your company. Each of our member accounting firms want to be part of your success. Count on our members to listen, give you top priority, and respond promptly with cost-effective services specifically suited to your personal capabilities and business needs.
