Ken Shayna's Three-Phased System - keeping clients on course.

Phase One is the monthly and/or quarterly review of your financial statements BEFORE they reach your desk. CPAs Ken and Raplh scrutinize your report to determine any immediate changes you might need.

Phase Two comes in the autumn, when our CPAs meet with each client to carefully review business issues in detail so as to most effectively reduce tax liability. These tax-planning meetings give clients a few hours with experts to review financial matters and plan for the future. Remember: Autumn tax planning meetings prevent April surprises!

Phase Three takes place the following calendar year, when constantly-changing tax laws have been established and final financial statements are completed. This is when our tax experts roll up their sleeves and skillfully hammer out each client's federal, state and local returns.

Estate Planning

Simply put, estate planning is the process by which an individual or family arranges the transfer of assets accumulated during life. An estate is the total property owned, real and personal; real property is real estate and personal property includes everything else, e.g., cars, household items, bank accounts. An estate plan aims to preserve the maximum amount of wealth possible for the intended beneficiaries and flexibility for the individual prior to death.

Though the subject matter is stupefying for mere mortals, Shayna Accounting's experts can explain estate planning issues without putting you to sleep: probate and the many ways to avoid it, methods for eliminating or reducing death taxes, funeral planning and choosing someone to handle your affairs if you can't.
