Whether completing tax returns or organizing submission of needed financial information and documents to an already engaged tax preparer, Hugh Gross does not regard tax returns as a commodity but rather as a reflection of the individual or entity whose return is involved. Tax planning and tax return preparation are therefore an integral part of any entity’s financial well-being.
Whether analyzing and interpreting the financial condition and performance of a business, or reviewing the procedures used to record the transactions themselves, every person and business needs to know how things are going. Hugh Gross helps individuals and businesses establish the systems and controls needed to organize their financial data to meet whatever reporting, compliance and/or decision-making requirements may exist.
