Before starting your business in New Jersey, it’s important to understand the regulations and requirements for things like business practices, licensing, and insurance. If you’ve just started, there’s no denying one of the most important things you can do to protect your small business assets is business insurance. But which one? There is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to ensuring your business, just as there are no two businesses alike. The chance is, your business needs will vary depending on a variety of factors, like the industry you operate in, the type of business you run, and trade.

.....As CPA's we continuously get requests for "comfort letters".....sometimes at the very last hour by a client about ready to close on a piece of property.....All the bank requests is a simple letter telling them that Jane Doe is "still" self-employed and "still owns" 50% of the business.....when we say we cannot do that we are met by a "pissed off" (a technical accounting and tax term) client..... ......Help us here.....this is the kind of help we need, NOT making sure we ticked off a box or included a piece of paper on "peer review!"

People’s greatest fear (besides death) is outliving their retirement assets. They want to know how to make their money last. Accountants can help. Some Applicable Assumptions Let’s assume the following: They Have Substantial Assets:  Your client has followed instructions and saved money with retirement in mind. Retirement is About 30 Years:  Your money should last that long. Spending It All is Okay:  Your client is fine not leaving a windfall for their heirs. There Will be About 3 Percent Average Inflation:  Research by Ibbotson Associates shows a 2.9 percent average rate between 1926 and 2019. One more optional assumption: Your client ...

I started my college career in Computer Programming (C++) and did alright in it. While I enjoyed it has a hobby I didn't see it as a career path for me.

This is my second post about my six-week internship at Nisivoccia LLP in Mount Arlington, New Jersey. I just had my first client visit, which was very exciting. My main tasks were to complete the Accounts Receivable (through Subsequent Cash Testing) and Accounts Payable workpapers. I worked closely with others on the audit team, as they provided me with direction. I had a sense of achievement when the numbers on my workpaper tied out. I really appreciated that Nisivoccia took me to a client because it gave me a much better perspective on how audits are performed. I liked working offsite at the client location. As part of the audit team, I learned ...
