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

Gary Bode,CPA: QuickBooks is our specialty! (910) 399-2705.

Gary was an online QuickBooks and Computerized Accounting Instructor for Baker College, in Michigan.  This familiarity with Quick Books, and his desire to turn your accounting and financial data into useful managerial tools, make him the perfect choice to set up QuickBooksfor you.  And, to help train the staff. With our virtual office, your Company’s location isn’t usually an issue.

“I’ve worked with every QuickBooks version for over 15 years: from Basic to Enterprise and Online, and in almost all types of companies.” Gary Bode, QuickBooks CPA

QuickBooks Chart of Accounts Setup

Your accounting should do more that just Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable.  Setting up logical accounts  to appear in your Financial Statements is crucial to turning your data into managerial tools, that can help guide your company’s future.  We utilize QuickBook’s flexibility to create a Chart of Accounts that reflects your business the way you intuitively think about it.  We adjust to the way you think.

For example, we often see Insurance as an Income Statement account.  It holds the facility’s insurance, Workman’s Comp, vehicle insurance, sometimes health insurance etc.  Which is, of course, correct.  But isn’t the facility insurance really part of facility cost?  Isn’t Workman’s Comp more like an employee cost?  And you can’t drive the vehicle without insurance.  So, we try to use functional centers:

  • Your Facility account has all its associated expenses listed with it. Rent, Utilities and Insurance.
  • Your Vehicle account includes Fuel, Repairs and Insurance.
  • Your Employee expenses include Health Insurance and Workman’s Comp.

The guideline for establishing an account is 1) how much money you expect to pass through it and 2) whether you can make managerial decisions based on that amount.  For example, if you have to sporadically rent a truck for your business, we would suggest tracking those expenses in a Truck Rental QuickBooks sub account.  Because you may eventually want to purchase your own truck if the cost of renting warrants it.

Pit Falls in  QuickBooks Setup

The same user friendliness that  makes QuickBooks the industry leader, is also its greatest downfall.  Things can be deleted and duplicated because it doesn’t have the controls other accounting software does.

 ” I’ve seen clients mess up QuickBooks in very creative ways and have learned how to fix all of them.” Gary Bode ,CPA – QuickBooks Accountant

While we try to prevent you having problems with QuickBooks, isn’t it comforting to know we can fix them?
