Dive into the 5 critical lessons that small businesses need to know when working as a government contractor.

Listen now:

The fiscal year is ending and it is the time to gather what you need, review processes, and get everything prepared for 2024.

This month, we’re creating a checklist of what you need. Look for posts earlier in the month to catch anything you missed.

Review taxes, payroll, and employee information:

✔️Tax Documents:
Organize and prepare tax-related documents such as W-2s for employees and 1099s for contractors.
✔️Tax Planning:
Work with your accountant to plan for year-end tax strategies to minimize your tax liability.
✔️Estimate Quarterly Taxes:
Estimate your quarterly tax payments for the upcoming year, if applicable.

✔️Payroll Compliance:
Verify that your payroll records are accurate, and all payroll taxes have been properly withheld and paid.
✔️Reconciliation of Payroll Records:
Ensure that your payroll records are reconciled with your payroll tax forms, such as Form 941.

✔️Employee Benefits and Retirement Plans:
Ensure contributions to employee benefits and retirement plans are up-to-date.
✔️Employee Records:
Ensure all employee records are accurate and up-to-date, including contact information, benefits, and salary details.



I’ve found one of the most important things we can do in our company is let others be empowered.

Our team and our community need to feel valued. This means listening to our employees and making them feel comfortable to make decisions. It means making our business client-centric so they feel heard and understood.

Quality service doesn’t mean just getting the job done right. It means trust and reliability are built within a job well done.


For many companies the fiscal year is ending. Now is the time to gather what you need, review processes, and get everything prepared for 2024.

We’ll be reviewing everything you need to think about from the accounting side.

Start with:
✔️Reviewing Financial Statements:
Review your income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement to assess your financial performance for the year.
✔️Reconciling Bank Accounts:
Ensure that all your bank and credit card statements are reconciled and match your accounting records.
✔️Inventory Valuation:
If your business carries inventory, conduct a physical count and update the value of your inventory on the balance sheet.
✔️Depreciation and Amortization:
Review and update the depreciation and amortization of assets on your balance sheet.
✔️Accounts Payable and Receivable:
Review your accounts payable and accounts receivable. Ensure that outstanding bills and invoices are accurate and up to date.

Someone in my life that was always an inspiration to me is my grandfather, who was also very much a mentor to me.

He immigrated to the U.S. from Holland as a boy, and came of age during the Great Depression. He dedicated himself during the Depression to ensuring people had food and shelter, working as a social worker. After the Depression and the end of WWII, he went to work for the State Department, and ran reconstruction programs internationally, to help efforts to rebuild after the war. Upon retirement, he took his modest savings of $70,000 and became an investor, and eventual millionaire. Over the span of his lifetime he led three amazing careers, and made successes out of each.

During my upbringing, he made time to meet with me monthly for ‘business meetings’ (really, we just had lunch together) during which he counseled and instructed me in investing and business. His time and effort was such a gift.

In the 1880’s, candy corn was a sweet confection known as “Chicken Feed.” Corn at the time was for feeding animals and about 50% of people were farmers so thematically it worked. It was also a treat not specifically tied to Halloween.

Our business isn’t always going to go the way we plan and it can’t stay the same forever. It’s hard to imagine anyone wanting to eat “Chicken Feed”, sweet treat or not.

However, if you can lean in to the changes, encourage innovation, and embrace opportunity (like marketing a candy product for Halloween and then changing up the colors and flavors to fit other holidays), your business will flourish.


As we move through Q4, it’s time to start planning for tax season. If you’ve had problems in the past, you know the importance of filing correctly and keeping solid records throughout the year.

We can help you prepare and file, negotiate and resolve tax issues with the government, and advise and plan for the upcoming year.
