For small businesses and even individuals, trying to do your taxes on your own will often end up wasting money instead of saving it. An inexperienced tax preparer can easily miss valuable deductions and make other costly mistakes that result in paying higher taxes and even penalties. Don’t take risks with your taxes, go to Edwards Ingram CPAs for trusted tax preparation services in the Fairfield County, CT area. We have a reputation for quality tax preparation at affordable rates for small businesses and individual taxpayers.
Our CPA firm offers smart tax management for a wide variety of small businesses including sole proprietorships, S Corps, C Corps, and LLCs. We’ll do more than help your business meet compliance requirements; we’ll work hard to find real tax savings you can bring to the bank. As your tax preparer, we’ll make sure you get every tax deduction and credit you deserve so your business retains higher revenues and maximizes profitability. Unlike online tax software, a real person who cares about controlling your tax burden will review your tax documents and make sure you only pay what you legally owe.
In our constantly evolving tax environment, tax planning must be proactive not reactive. That’s why we work with you throughout the year to develop and refine your tax plan. For new businesses, we identify which business structure will bring the most tax savings and allow you to become profitable quicker. For established businesses, we analyze your finances to find ways to control tax exposure. We’ll identify which deductions are available for your particular industry, how to take advantage of certain tax credits, and how to limit your tax burden as your business grows. And for individuals, we recommend a variety of techniques to maximize after-tax income and put more cash in your wallet.
It’s true, you can incorporate a business yourself online but creating a lucrative and sustainable enterprise takes more than selecting the right entity. At Edwards Ingram CPAs, we provide incorporation services coupled with the sound financial guidance new business owners need to build a longstanding organization.
The first step is to clearly explain your options for incorporation so you understand what it means to form an S corporation, C corporation, or LLC. After identifying the best structure for your business, we’ll design a coordinating tax plan that works in conjunction to limit tax obligations so you turn a profit sooner. Next, we’ll provide whatever additional assistance you need to get your operation off the ground including writing a compelling business plan, finding ways to secure financing, and showing you how to organize your accounting and bookkeeping processes.
As your business develops, the continued value of partnering with us will become clear. Our Fairfield County, CT CPA firm will make ourselves available to answer financial questions that arise and work with you to minimize expenses and maximize revenues.

Cloud accounting is an indispensable financial tool for the modern small business owner. To keep up with the pace of business in today’s world you need to be ready to make financial decisions from anywhere. The cloud-based accounting system offered by Edwards Ingram CPAs makes your financial data accessible from virtually any place you can jump on an internet connection. This convenient 24/7 access will empower you to make the quick decisions that you need to in order to keep your business moving forward, day or night.
Managing your accounting data from a cloud platform is both safer and more practical than traditional desktop accounting software. When your financial information is living on a local hard drive it can be stolen, destroyed in a natural disaster, or burned up in a fire. But, when your accounting software is in the cloud, it's safe from theft and the elements. The online accessibility also allows your CPA firm to oversee your transactions regularly to help keep your data organized and error-free.
At Edwards Ingram CPAs, we recommend QuickBooks™ for our business clients but setting up any accounting software properly can be tricky if you’re not an accountant. When we become your CPA firm, we’ll handle the initial setup to be sure your data is accurately collected throughout the year. As Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors, we know how to select the appropriate version of software for your type of business, create your chart of accounts, and design clear and professional invoice templates so your clients are more likely to pay on time. We can also answer questions and share useful tips for entering data to be sure you’re getting the most of your QuickBooks software.
In addition to easy setup and stable financial data, our ongoing support services for QuickBooks will make gathering documents for year-end tax filings easy and painless. Instead of spending hours organizing archaic paperwork and searching for missing receipts, we’ll use the information QuickBooks tracks throughout the year to prepare and file your taxes with minimal effort on your part.
