Merry Ann has been the saving grace of our company. Her competence coupled with her patience and understanding are the reasons we are still in business today. It is refreshing to know that there are still people out there that care about people, and understand the struggle of business. Some say that everyone is replaceable, but regarding Merry Ann I would have to argue that. If our company ever grows to be a giant, I can assure you that Merry Ann's ability and willingness to fill in our companies "gaps" (whatever they might be) that will have been a major contributor.
We have outsourced our payroll, as well as personal and business taxes, with Tennessee Business Services. This has eliminated many headaches for us. Tennessee Business Services has provided us with personalized service, timely payroll deliveries and no worries! Their rates are very reasonable and the service has been excellent.
Finding someone to do our company & personal taxes and be dependable had become a daunting task. I found Tennessee Business Services while performing an online search. I emailed the company and asked several questions, and I received a response back quickly. After a phone interview, I decided I would hire her. Much to my delight she finished our taxes ahead of time and her fees were reasonable. We will be using her services next year.
We have found Tennessee Business Services to be very honest and trustworthy; never have to worry about turning over our checkbook. They have handled all accounting and financial areas of the business. Also willingly help with non-accounting related issues such as meeting with insurance companies, handling personnel issues, and handling personal and business banking issues. Merry Ann has worked with me since 2000. She is very knowledgeable and provides a very personalized service. Tennessee Business Services is always genuinely interested in seeing us succeed.
Tennessee Business Services handles many tasks, including meeting with customers to develop a strong effective relationship with regard to invoicing and customer needs. They have taken care of our business formation, A/P, A/R, payroll, taxes, and accounting issues. Never have to worry about financial related issues as long as TBS is handling them.
I passionately believe the success of my company is based on the work completed by Tennessee Business Services. You will not find a company more dedicated to ensuring the success of their client. Their insight and understanding of financial and business procedures are exceptional. Through tact, perseverance, devotion to duty, and outstanding performance, they substantially furthered the prestige, effectiveness, and efficiency of Middle Tennessee Plastics.
As you know, starting a business takes a great deal of work and we quickly realized there were areas of the business that were beyond our expertise. As a small company we could not afford to hire a full time accountant and Tennessee Business Services provided us with exceptional advice, tax service, QuickBooks coaching, and moral support that we were able pay for on a need only basis. In the long run, the money we spent for this service was more than recouped in tax savings and piece of mind. You have truly been an important part of our success. I would highly recommend Tennessee Business Services to other start up companies, as well as to anyone simply needing solid tax advice and preparation.
As a business owner, I have dealt with many “accounting firms” in the past. It was always the same end of the year crunch to pull together all documentation associated with filing of taxes and not ever knowing what our tax exposure was going to be. We never received calls from the accountant, except to advise us that their invoice needed paying—absolutely no solid advice or counseling. This past year we got away from that maddening method and changed to a company that is not just another accounting firm. We partnered with Tennessee Business Services and soon learned what a real firm does. We were immediately given personal attention; like a team approach to accounting. They began monitoring our records on a quarterly basis, checking for errors or opportunities in our books. They found many opportunities and better yet they were able to estimate our year end exposure to taxes – imagine that! Then they showed us ways we could minimize our taxes based on the manner we conducted our business. My feeling at that point was “this is a company that truly is looking after my company’s best interest”. At the end of the year they lived up to their motto—“They saved my company much more in taxes than the cost of their exceptional service”. Tennessee Business Services will be our “professional accounting firm” in the future.
