It is never too early and your business is never too small to need an accountant. If you wait until your start-up is several years down the road, you will lose the advantages that come from taking a highly-organized approach to your company’s finances. This could negatively affect the potential success of your business and impede its growth.

McKay Tax & Accounting is a family-owned firm that has been where you are. Richard McKay built this business from the ground up. That makes us uniquely suited to help guide others through the process of their own business formation.


When you first start a business, it is natural to have a lot of concerns and a lot of questions. You need answers -- fast. Sometimes you aren’t even sure what questions to ask. We know how to guide you through all the steps of business formation, including:

  • Deciding which type of company (sole proprietorship, limited liability company or corporation) is right for your needs
  • Aid understanding and setting up the chart of accounts and asset accounts for the business
  • Understanding the tax consequences of each business type and the potential impact on your family’s financial security
  • Establishing the processes you need to operate such as accounts payable, accounts receivable, profit & loss statements, and balance sheets
  • Accounting and payroll software setup - or management services for those who prefer to hand this effort off
  • QuickBooks training, installation, and support for invoices, purchase orders and check writing, et al
  • Assistance with monthly, quarterly, and yearly analysis of your accounts and forecasts
  • Tax planning, including strategies for ethical tax reduction
  • Insight into investment planning and pitches, including data collection -- even if that is something still far in the future
  • Online collaboration for financial management, including risk-reduction strategies and effective cash-flow management

We customize our service to your business needs. As you grow, we are happy to grow with you or let you take the reins.
