Small businesses need budgets, but too often, they don’t have one. The staff at David Mills CPA, LLC can assist with your budgeting needs.
Creating a business budget can seem overwhelming. One survey found as many as two-thirds of all small businesses don’t have a budget.
Without a budget, though, your company’s financial health is at risk. Small businesses face challenges every day. A budget helps mitigate those difficulties.
The experts at David Mills CPA will show you how budgeting can grow your profits. Interpreting the numbers is key, but we understand making sense of those figures can feel overwhelming.
We can help you answer the critical questions:
A smartly planned budget will include flexibility to help you navigate any troubled waters your business may face.

We will teach you the questions to ask when looking at your budget versus actual numbers. In this way, your budget becomes a valuable tool to manage cash flow and build your business.
Budgets help make your business more efficient. They can help keep your company out of debt while developing a roadmap for future growth or expansion.

You’re the CEO of your business and an expert in your industry, but does that expertise expand to the financial side of your business? If phrases like “projected profitability” and “cash flow” make you cringe, it’s time to call the experts at David Mills, CPA, LLC.
Chances are you didn’t get into business because the idea of managing financial statements appealed to you, yet your company’s success is directly related to the quality of your financial statements and the CFO (chief financial officer)/Controller Services overseeing them.
A head-in-the-sand approach to your business finances is a disaster waiting to happen. Just like ignoring your car’s check engine light can leave you stranded, not paying attention to finances can cripple your business.
More than 28% of bankrupt businesses cite problems with the financial structure of their company as a primary reason for failure.
Businesses fail because they forget about the basics. Have you taken the time to create a budget? If you have, do you regularly analyze the results? Is your business making a profit, yet you never seem to have money in the bank?
Hiring an outsourced controller/CFO is the smart way to keep your finger on the financial pulse of your business.
If financial statements make no sense to you, you won’t use them. You need controller services you can trust to interpret the statements for you.
Just because you may not have the budget for a full-time CFO doesn’t mean you don’t have alternatives.
With our Morton and East Peoria offices, our firm can provide CFO services on an “as-needed” basis to companies in the Tri-County area.
We can take full responsibility for the financial side of your business, work part-time, or train your staff. Our services are available on a monthly, quarterly or a specific-project basis.
You’ll gain greater control over your business when the numbers make sense.
Having the staff at David Mills, CPA, LLC be your financial experts allows you to excel at the business you do best.

If you own a business, you have probably heard about the Section 199A Deduction. This is also known as a Qualified Business Income Deduction. You may wonder what exactly this is and how does it work? David Mills CPA has put together information in order to help you better understand the 199A Deduction.
The 199A Deduction reduces taxable income, but not adjusted gross income. This deduction does not lower Illinois taxable income or does not lower self-employment tax.
The 199A Deduction is available to sole proprietors, partners, and S corporation shareholders. It is not available to C corporations.
The calculation for the 199A Deduction can be complex. It is partly dependent on the taxpayer’s total taxable income. There are no limits for married filing jointly taxpayers with $315,000 or less of taxable income. There are typically no limits on the deduction regardless of whether the business is a specified service trade or business.
The deduction is the lesser of the Qualified Business Income or 20 percent of taxable income minus long-term capital gains.
Limits exist for married filing joint taxpayers with taxable incomes between $315,000 and $415,000. A limit begins to phase in based on wages and/or qualified property acquisitions.
If you earn an income above $415,000, limits are determined based on W-2 wages and qualified property acquisitions. This deduction is not available to the taxpayer under certain circumstances.
If you are looking for more information or need help with your 199A Deduction, contact David Mills CPA today. Our team of experts will be happy to assist you with all of your financial needs. David Mills offers financial and accounting services to small and medium-sized businesses, as well as individuals in Peoria, IL as well as the surrounding areas. We look forward to hearing from you!
