|About Financial Express ( Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Utube )
2020 marks the 30th anniversary that Financial Express has provided financial services to small business and self-
employed professionals throughout the St. Louis metro area. During this period, we have been engaged by over 500
clients to satisfy their particular financial service need.
Financial Services provided:
The firm can charge lower accounting fees since it does not perform public auditing and "Certification" of financial statements given the high risk
and cost of malpractice insurance.
Practitioners are members of the "American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (CPAs)", the "Institute of Certified Management
Accountants (CMAs)" &/or the "National Association of Enrolled Agents (EAs re practice before the IRS)."
We use, install and support both "QuickBooks" and "Sage 50-Peachtree" accounting software in-house and at client locations. Also establish
client presence on popular social media sites and applicable "Cloud based" systems.
Many business owners rely on getting key business advice from accountants and tax preparers. People who may know numbers, laws, and
regulations but who have never started or grown a business. They've never experienced the near panic of missing a payroll, a loan payment nor the
thrill of generating profits and positive cash flow.
That's why, since 1990 Financial Express has armed its clients with an advantage critical to every business looking to grow and thrive.
That advantage is called a personal Business Advisor who has been there. Who has started their own small business and nurtured it along for many
years at a storefront or office just like yours. The firm gives substance to our motto "We treat your money like our own"!
Somebody who does a lot more than crank out financial statements and tally up the books at year end for tax purposes.
Someone who consults with you and points out opportunities and pitfalls. A person very interested in what you're doing and how you're doing on
a monthly basis. Who has professional resources at his beck and call.
Most of all, somebody who can help you solve the mystery every business owner continually faces: "How do you grow a business, not just operate it?"
and even harder, "How do you make money at it?" Most of our clients view our fee as an investment, not a cost. Monthly fees are fixed for one
year based on the number of transactions. For a detailed listing of accounting services, click here Sample agreement.
Financial Express does not collect the payroll amounts due nor the related taxes (impounding) from the client and deposit the funds in it's bank
account prior to disbursement (like our competitors). The client retains its funds until each issued check or wire transfer clears his bank account
(retains cash float). This also eliminates the huge risk to the client if the impounded funds (taxes, etc) are not disbursed from the processor's bank
account to the intended payee by the due date. Please note that the client, not the processor, always remains liable for any unpaid taxes, penalties &
interest. Additionally, the payroll client retains the funds in his bank account for any non-cashed payroll checks, etc. versus the processor.
Save time and money by stop paying your employees. We handle the hassle, you hand out the checks or stubs (Direct deposit). Client
always has on-line access to all payroll info and related reports. Also, employees may be given on-line access to their payroll check info.
The truth is, companies can no longer afford the hassle, the headaches, the hidden costs of handling their own payroll. Unless in your case you have
nothing better to do. We doubt that so read on.
We process your complete payroll- the forms, records, tax payments, paychecks, direct deposits, wire transfers, the whole nine-yards of bureaucratic
wax- for a fee so low, you'll kick yourself for not outsourcing the payroll sooner.
We use, install and support Intuit-ITO cloud software in-house and at client locations.
Think about it. About all the paperwork, records, journals, filings and complicated, ever changing tax laws, forms, & required regulatory websites,
you have to keep up with. Plus all the penalties, interest and late fees you have to pay if you don't comply. Really a "no win" situation! That's why
it's smarter, and more cost effective, NOT to do it yourself. So why do it? Next payday, let us handle the hassle and the risk of penalties and
threats. Say good-bye to late fees. You just hand out the checks or the stubs. Fees are fixed for one year based on the number of checks processed
each payroll. For a detailed listing of payroll services, click here Sample agreement.
INCOME TAX RETURN PREPARATION
IRS Enrolled Agents (EAs) are "federally licensed" and assist in preparing and reviewing all tax work prior to electronically filing with IRS and all
states. CPAs and Tax Attorneys are only "state licensed".
All types of business and personal tax returns are processed for both the IRS and ALL states. Usually the business tax work is seamless to the
client if Financial Express is also providing the accounting and payroll services (One-stop). One firm providing all three services is highly
recommended and usually produces the lowest cost and best results since there is no redundancy, duplication of effort, etc.
We are members of the "National Association of Enrolled Agents (EAs re IRS)", the "National Association of Tax Preparers (NATP)", the "National
Society of Tax Professionals" and an "Authorized IRS e-file Provider".
Business returns for the following entity types are prepared:
Corporation- F1120C, H & S Sole Proprietor- F1040 Sched C
Partnership- F1065 LLC-election to file as: F1120 C or S, F1065 or F1040 Sched C
Estate & Trust- F1041
Tax return preparation fees are based on a time and materials basis.
The following complies with the Federal Trade Commission's rule 16 CFR 313 dealing with the privacy of consumer
