    Now that specifics are out for the second Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) round, there are some important things you need to know. One is the 25% loss in receipts rule.



    How Is Your Small Business Adapting?

    For most of us, driving to the office has been replaced by remote work environments. Fortunately, at BudgetEase we did a lot of remote work before the pandemic. For many small businesses, however, this has been a challenging adjustment period.

    'Tis the eCommerce Season

    Despite the time of year, I chose to head to Aurora Outlets to pick up a few holiday gifts this week. I recall saying last year that I would spare myself the misery of trying to find a parking spot and waiting in line. Knowing the annoyance lying ahead, I went anyway.

    It’s Almost Year-End. What Should You Be Thinking About?

    It’s not too late to get organized for year-end. A lot of small business owners wait too long to get their financials in order. Closing the books for the year doesn’t have to be a race to the finish; it can be a jog. Below are a few things you can do now.

    We Tackle the Tough Stuff

    As the title suggests, we can help your small business tackle the tough stuff, and no we are not selling laundry detergent now.

    NOW is the Perfect Time to Catch Up on Your Bookkeeping

    Summer's over, the kids are settled back in school or in their virtual classes, and we have a little time before the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping hits. Spend the extra time you have now catching up on your bookkeeping (and dealing with matters related to operating in a global pandemic). Sounds exciting, right? Probably not, but it will pay off if you do it! 

    The Fall Catch-Up Challenge

    This has been an unusual year with COVID-19 and the financial burden many businesses are facing. What has not changed is the calendar. The year ends on December 31st, and accountants will want to start preparing taxes between now and then.

    E-Commerce and Sales Tax

    If you’re an e-commerce business, you know the pain and suffering involved in managing sales tax. Each state, and in some cases different counties within a state, have differing tax laws. Taxes can vary depending on the county in which  you are selling!
