    – Security First In Your Business with Steve Lewis Episode 004 Mat Hultquist

    Listen to this inspirational Security First Podcast episode with Mat Hultquist about how to understand your financial and tax statements to maximize your cash revenue. He also talked about how he realized that small accounting firms weren’t as proactive as the larger firms at reducing clients’ tax burdens or at helping them strategically plan for a better future. Rather, most small CPA firms simply prepared monthly financial statements or tax returns and sent their client a bill.

    Here are some of the topics covered on this week’s show:

    • Taking the complicated things, understanding them, and then helping clients understand how we can apply that to their situation whether it's to save taxes, increase cash flow in your business.

    • Educating clients on what those financial statements are showing them and help them understand that cash is king in their business.

    • 50% to 60% of the time, reviewing returns, either there was a mistake or there was a rule that clients didn't know about or a provision they didn't take advantage. We show them how they can go back and amend those returns and get a refund.
