Client Testimonials

I became totally and permanently disabled after a working for 44 years. I returned to college late in life (while working full-time) to fulfill my dream of becoming an RN and at that time found it necessary to secure student loans. Three years after being declared totally and permanently disabled my student loans were discharged. In January 2013 we received a 1099-C form declaring said student loans that were discharged however that amount could be considered as income for 2012. This was a large amount of money and we live on two pensions and social security income.

I started looking on the internet for information regarding 1099-C and felt that this was something that we could not handle alone. I made phone calls locally to a very reputable tax group in a city near us and they said it would cost $500 for an appointment and that they really prefer to do corporate taxes and they referred me to a local person who had worked for them at one time, we called and explained the situation and an appointment was made and then the comment was made that "I will have to do some research on this" and flags immediately went up and we called back and cancelled that appointment. I had been researching the IRSwebsite and every place else I could think of and I was not comfortable doing our own taxes this year. We called another local tax preparer that we had used in the past and made an appointment, however prior to the appointment, while still seeking information regarding our situation,

I came across a website for Gary l. Bode, MSA, CPA, PC in Wilmington, NC. I called Mr. Bodeand explained our situation and asked if he could help. He spoke very knowledgeably regarding the situation and stated that yes; he felt he could help us. As Mr. Bode was in North Carolina and we were in New York I scanned all of our documents including back-up documents for all of our claims and forwarded all to him. Mr. Bode kept in touch with us via email; we have spoken on the telephone several times and have become very comfortable with his knowledge and professionalism. Also, as I am a true "worrier" I have continued looking into information regarding our tax situation and I came upon another web page for Mr. Bode that included testimonials which spoke of his experience with this type of tax situation as it became prevalent during the recession. This reinforced in our minds that we had made the right decision in hiring this person as our tax preparer.

I share all of this as our taxes are now ready to be filed (we do owe tax for 2012 but not the astronomical figure we thought we were facing), and we are confident that they have been prepared with the utmost care by a gentleman who has an excellent working knowledge of the situation we faced and the tax laws that were applicable to said situation.

QuickBooks CPA discusses the Days Cash on Hand Financial Ratio | Wilmington NC

QuickBooks CPA Wilmington NC

Gary Bode, CPA: your QuickBooks bookkeeping should be managerially useful. For a free phone consult call 399-2705.

Every QuickBooks CPA knows that hard work goes into your bookkeeping and accounting. Too often it is only used to interface with the IRS during income tax preparation. Here is an example of a tool Fortune 500 companies develop as part of a monthly performance dashboard. Days Cash on Hand is an “alarm” type of tool.

What is a Financial Ratio?

Two or more components, taken from the company’s accounting or Financial Statements, are compared to each other in the form of a ratio or percentage. Financial analysis uses dozens of standardized ratios. These can be benchmarked to past figures, other companies and entire industry segments.

“The Days Cash on Hand calculation indicates how long a company can continue to operate if its revenue was cut off. All components of the calculation are derived from the underlying QuickBooks bookkeeping.”
– Gary Bode, QuickBooks CPA Wilmington NC

Below 90  is an indication that the company’s liquidity could be jeopardized if revenue dropped suddenly. What is the ideal number? It depends. Too high implies less than optimal utilization of resources. If the company’s revenue suddenly declines, it usually takes a 90 days to develop and implement a turnaround plan. Remember the Days Cash on Hand is just one monthly tool and would be a part of a performance dashboard.

Days Cash on Hand = (Cash + Investments + Available Lines of Credit) / Average Daily Operating Expenses
