  1. Do you ever worry that if the credit card you’re using to make business purchases isn’t in your business name that you won’t be allowed to take the deductions? The good news is, that’s not the case—even if you have a separate entity! This doesn’t mean you should mix personal and business expenses. When you take a personal credit card and use it entirely for business expenses, you are essentially contributing this debt to your business. You can use the card the same as if it was in the company’s name and deduct every business expense you purchase on it. This can be a great strategy, just like with auto loans, when the company is new because it’s harder for new companies to get lines of credit without an established credit history. So if you’ve got a personal credit card available for business expenses, feel free to use that card and benefit from all of the rewards!

  4. According to The NY Times, you should have a well-padded cushion of savings by age 50 if you want to retire comfortably. This is how it should look: By age 50, have five times your annual salary saved. ( ie. $100K income = $500K savings) By age 55, have six times your annual salary saved. ( ie. $100K income = $600K savings) By age 60, have seven times your annual salary saved. ( ie. $100K income = $700K savings) The Times also reports that less than 13% of Americans have a pension or a solid retirement plan. How does your situation looks? Are you on track to retire comfortably? If not, no need to panic. We can guide you in getting there. If a shop owner who is currently 50 years old starts putting away $2,700 every month until he retires at 67. He would have amassed $1,245,344 by the time he retires. Now you might be asking where will I get the money from to save? Well, most of the shop owners that I encounter are overpaying an average of $22,679 in taxes yearly. This amount alone could easily be used to fund your retirement plan. When we met Henry he was 62 and his shop was netting a little over $283K per year. We were able to find tax savings which allowed him to save $84K per year and in 8 years he had over $1.1M in retirement savings. To learn how to use your tax savings to build your retirement portfolio message me directly or book a free consultation via my website.

  6. Typically, at the end of the year, tool reps and other sales people will try to sell shops tools and equipment with the pitch to make sure you get all your write-off deductions in by the end of the year. While this tax strategy can reduce your taxable income, thus reducing the amount of taxes you owe, you need to discuss any purchase with the purpose of using it as a write-off with a qualified accountant first. Reducing taxable income through ligament write-off deductions can in many cases also reduce your cash reserve. Cash is king and sometimes paying taxes and maintaining cash reserve is the smarter decision. Everyone wants to reduce their business and personal income tax. But, please discuss with your accountant any purchase that may impact cash reserve. Obviously, if you need a particular tool or equipment to operate your business, that’s different.
  7. Hi All, I'd like to thank everyone who has helped answer so many questions recently. I'm in the process of finalizing the opening of our Auto Repair shop and I got a call from a CPA offering their services. Basically their offering is a subsription type service that allows me to contact them with any questions etc and they help file taxes each year etc etc. However being new to this I would appreciate any input on how you all manage the finances of your business. I was hoping quickbooks would be sufficient for me but apparently they recomend proffesional help. Our shop consists of 2 full time mechanics and myself to manage and run the whole thing as well as the initial service advisor.
