The Blog Of TL Wall Accounting

Why T. L. Wall Accounting & Tax Corp?

Over the past six years we’ve given a lot of advice on many things related to financial health, both business and personal; budgeting, bookkeeping, accounting, income; etc. We’ve rarely talked about ourselves as a commercial for why anyone would want to work with us. Therefore, we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves again, and show why we feel we’re one of the top small accounting firms in the Syracuse and central New York area.

We don’t have multiple offices around the state; we sit right on Main Street in North Syracuse. We don’t have dozens of specialized accountants. We have who we need to address the issues that small to medium sized business owners and individuals have, and we’ve proven over the years that we’re as accurate as anyone else.

Terri Wall has been a small business owner for over 20 years. She’s worked with a partner and now is the head of her own corporation. She also has worked in corporate accounting, starting out in that world, so she has the benefit of experience in that area. The combination of both helps to set her and her company apart from many others.

One thing that benefits many small business owners is working with someone who is just like they were. It’s not easy starting one’s own business and even harder making it a great success. Being able to work with someone who’s been there and is now doing well on her own is inspiring and comforting.

Something else that’s to our benefit is that our customers aren’t just customers, but become friends. We can take the time to not only work with you but discuss issues that bother you. We can usually find a quick 5 minutes to address a question you might have, but will always get back to everyone within 24 hours, except during holidays and of course tax season. We get to understand how you like to do business and what your strengths and weaknesses are, and we make sure we keep in touch with you with a quick phone call or email, if that’s your preferred way of being contacted.

Finally, we’re an affordable choice for all our clients. We can offer as much or as little time and advice as you need, but we’re always there for your tax needs and will make sure to keep you and your business on time and in line, safe from tax penalties. We’re also there if you need help with budgeting or bill paying, Quickbooks training, and any other type of financial consulting you need for your business.

Versatile, friendly, accurate and local; what more could want in an accounting company? We’d love to have your business, and we’re just a phone call away at 315-314-7253. We hope you enjoy our blog, and we’d love to work with you.
 

Should You Hire An Employee For Your Small Business?

Something that every sole entrepreneur learns at some point is that they need help with “something”. It could be with sales, answering the phones, handling marketing… almost anything.

When you get to this point, it begs this question: do you hire or hire out? For some it’s an easy answer; for others it’s complicated. As an owner, you have to think about what’s at stake for your business.

What’s Your Most Important Financial Consideration?

Like almost everything else in life, looking at one’s finances isn’t the same for every person; sometimes it’s not the same throughout one person’s life.

There’s more differences than just thinking about either worrying about debt or monetary growth. There are times when you need something immediately, need to think about different long term situations, need to balance between eating and living and tragedy. Life isn’t simple so why should finances be?

Let’s Talk Consumer Credit Counseling

A few years ago we touched upon the topic of problems paying bills. In that article we briefly mentioned Consumer Credit Counseling. That’s because it’s a free service, for the most part, that helps people set up payment arrangements to get rid of a lot of debt and takes a small percentage of it to help cover their costs so they can continue providing services for others.

They’re the best known but there are other companies that can help you with this same type of thing. While accountants like us can help you set up a budget and help you manage your money, these companies have one specific goal, which is to help get you out of debt and keep you from adding onto it.

4 Things You Should Know When It Comes To Hospital Bills

Did you know that around 63% of all people who file for bankruptcy have a significant health care bill logged, and it’s most probably a hospital bill? For most of history large medical bills might have been included on credit reports, but lenders ignored it, which meant people could still get loans and still qualify for new credit cards. It pretty much meant that even if you were getting calls from collection agencies regarding medical bills and you ignored them that it wouldn’t impact your credit scores at all.

Those days are long gone. Just like anything else that shows up negative on your credit report, if you haven’t attempted to take care of an outstanding medical bill you can’t buy a house or a car, you can’t get a credit card… you’re pretty much stuck with the consequences. Some people think it’s unfair because medical bills can be extensive and it’s not like anyone volunteers for the worse case scenarios. Still, hospitals, physicians, clinics, whatever… these are professional businesses, and they deserve to get paid.
