Think of us as a GPS for your tax and accounting needs!

Plus Minus is your back office GPS when you need to cruise through the critical needs of running a business, from completing payroll to keeping accurate books and more.

Tax & Accounting needs for clients throughout Portland
From working with individuals, to serving small and mid-sized businesses, our full suite of professional services helps you plan, build, and reach your financial goals.

All we need is your office coordinates to get started. We’ll pick up and deliver your accounting records every month to help you plan and schedule accordingly. From there, we’ll deliver monthly profit and loss statements that help you keep better track of your business, and plan around trends and changes.

Tax Preparation and Filing
Leave “close enough” to a game of horseshoes. From business taxes to personal returns, property tax and more, we work with your numbers to make sure everything adds up in your favor come tax time. In addition, we handle monthly and quarterly sales taxes, quarterly payroll taxes, including Form 941 and State, and withholding statements for employees (W-2s and 1099s).

Tax Planning
For us, tax planning is about what’s happening now, and about what’s happening next. Our proactive tax planning services help you limit your tax liability and keep more of your hard-earned money. We provide insight into new tax laws, including how they affect you and your business, support for when you need to make critical business decisions, and reviews of your previous year’s tax returns to check for accuracy and possible savings.

Business Advice and Consultation
Even when our work is about numbers, it’s still about people. We’re your sounding board when you need to make key financial decisions – especially when those decisions and intended results need to be spot-on. As trusted business advisors, we’re available to answer your accounting and tax-related questions when they come up, whether it’s during a scheduled appointment or an urgent call.

We’ll put QuickBooks to work for you!

Imagine having a tool that, despite offering robust solutions, was being completely underutilized, possibly to the detriment of your business. Many small businesses find themselves in this situation where QuickBooks is concerned. We can help you plow through the QuickBooks tunnel and discover what’s on the other side.

Training, Consulting, and Administration
Just because you’ve purchased the software doesn’t mean it’s working for you. We make sure you’ve set up your QuickBooks file properly, review your data entry for accuracy, review your adjusting transactions, cash receipts and disbursements, make general ledger adjustments, create QuickBooks internal financial statements (for management), and provide monthly hard copies of comb-bound financial statements when requested.

Our technology allows us to review your QuickBooks data remotely, saving you time and scheduling headaches. We ensure that your QuickBooks complies with GAAP requirements and current IRS laws, and make sure of the accuracy of owner’s equity, liabilities, balance sheets, and income statements. When requested, we provide monthly bank reconciliation and an “Accountant’s Review” merged copy.
