SEND IN YOUR FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

It's hard to believe that another year is almost over. It seems the older I get, the faster the years fly.

Don't forget: When you have your year end Financial Statements complete, if you have a loan with us, don't forget to send us a copy. We will need your files and a copy of your federal tax returns after those are filed. We have found that the easiest way to send your tax returns to us is to have your accountant send them securely from their office when they are completed. All of this information can be sent to [email protected]. This account is monitored daily and we will be sure that your information gets to the correct place.

Thanks again for another great year! We couldn't do it without you!

When providing a balance sheet to your lender, the more detail you can put on the balance sheet, the faster you will get an answer on a new loan. A well prepared and complete balance sheet is a good indication of your management ability. Likewise, a poorly prepared balance sheet can reflect negatively on you and your business.
