SB Suite is Not a Certified Public Accounting Firm, or a Law Firm, and it is not engaged in the practice of public accounting, or law, as defined by Federal and applicable State laws. No information obtained from SB Suite should the considered as financial, tax, or legal advice. SB Suite provides you with complete bookkeeping, accounting, payroll, tax preparation, HR management, and a suite of other back-office services to help you start, manage and grow your business. We have established the following Terms of Use (“Terms”) to inform you of our service processes, and of both our and your rights. By using our services, you accept to be bound by the terms set forth herein. We reserve the right at any time to modify these Terms, without notice to you. Please review these Terms periodically for any updates or changes.

Bookkeeping Services
SB Suite will perform bookkeeping and accounting for your business and process all relevant financial documents and data, including bank deposits, cancelled checks, credit card transactions, and cash receipts (“transactions”) provided to us on a catch-up and/or monthly basis. We provide non-audited compilations of information provided by you as the business owner. All of the transactions will be accounted for in our accounting system, generally on a cash-basis (unless otherwise instructed by you, or unless you are using our Full-charge services), where bank reconciliation, general ledger, trial balance, cash ledger, expense ledgers, and revenue ledgers will be provided to you on a catch-up and monthly basis. Simply send us all the information that is requested by us, and we do the rest. It is your responsibility to provide us with the proper documents on a timely basis. While every effort will be made to send you reminders of filing deadlines, if any, it is ultimately your responsibility, as the business owner, to send us all the required information on time, in order for us to properly complete and file any reports/returns on a timely basis. As part of our process, we will be emailing all completed or draft financial statements, such as Profit & Loss, Balance sheet, etc. for your review. We will make necessary changes that you request, and correct any errors that we may have made. If you do not notify us of any changes or errors within a reasonable time, we will assume that you agree to the financial statements completed by us, and no refunds of any fees will be given for work already performed, unless it is proven that even after attempts to correct any errors, or make any requested changes, the financials are not compliant with generally accepted accounting principles. Please note that change requests that are based on “preferences” of other accounting professionals, may be charged additional fees.

Payroll Services
If you sign-up for our payroll services, SB Suite will provide complete payroll processing services. Our all-inclusive payroll service includes the following: payroll information processing, payroll checks, or direct deposits, quarterly payroll tax processing and deposits, pay-period specific reports, and year-end tax documentation (W-2s for then-active employees). Our payroll services may be rendered to you by SB Suite or a third party payroll provider with whom we may contract to provide these services to you. It is your responsibility, as the business owner, to provide us with your time sheet, if applicable, on a timely basis, in order for us to prepare your payroll timely. Depending on the delivery option you choose, you are required to provide us your employees’ information 2-3 business days prior to your paydate. SB Suite prepares your payroll checks (drawn on your own bank account) and delivers them to you (FedEx – shipping at FedEx cost), OR directly deposits the net pay amounts into each employee’s bank account (bank fee per direct deposit may apply). Please ensure that you email or fax us with your employees’ pay information at least 2 business days prior to payday (for checks) and 3 business days prior to payday for Direct Deposits. Our cut off time is 3PM each day for payroll processing. For direct deposits, SB Suite’s payroll provider will ACH debit the net payroll amount from your designated bank account, two days PRIOR to your scheduled payday. Your employees’ will receive direct deposits on the scheduled payday. Please ensure that your bank account is properly funded for this purpose. Should the attempted ACH direct deposit debit bounce back due to insufficient funds, your employees’ scheduled direct deposits will be stopped, until we can verify the sufficiency of funds. Upon the first of such occurrence, we will require that your bank accounts have sufficient funds for the total direct deposit amount for the next payperiod, at least three to five full business days prior to your scheduled payday. SB Suite’s Payroll Service impounds all employee payroll tax deductions, as well as the employer’s tax requirements, by issuing a check for the amount of taxes to be impounded onto our payroll account, and deposit them on your behalf when due.

Tax Preparation Services
Sales/Use/Excise Taxes: If you desire for us to prepare your sales/Use/Excise tax returns we will complete the returns for you, including pre-payment forms, if any, depending on your State requirements. The copy of the completed return will be provided to you electronically via email (or on our website), at the end of each month/quarter, for you to sign, and mail with payment. It is your responsibility, as the business owner, to provide us with accurate sales/use information on which we will base the completion of your returns.
Income Tax: SB Suite will provide for you any and all year end financial reports needed to file year-end state and federal income tax returns. Should you choose to have us prepare your taxes, we will do so using the financial reports that we prepare as part of our bookkeeping services, along with any additional information you provide. In addition to the financial reports we may prepare for you as part of our bookkeeping/accounting services, we may require additional information at tax time relating to your business and personal information. Your tax return(s) may be prepared and signed by SB Suite, or one of our network third party tax preparers who include CPAs and IRS Enrolled Agents.

Incorporation/LLC Formation Services
