Del Real Tax Group will focus on big savings for small business
For the average small business owner, managing every aspect of the business from marketing and sales to human resources can be daunting. Finding a tax adviser that understands your needs can be challenging, especially if this is the first time an adviser has been brought into the administrative process. Del Real Tax Group, Inc. (www.delrealtax.com), located at 2209 S Highland Avenue, was established in order to provide year-round comprehensive tax and accounting services for small businesses and individuals. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on Wednesday, July 25 in conjunction with the Berwyn Development Corporation (BDC).
Often times, start-ups and small business owners complete their own tax returns. Some entrepreneurs may even feel that they lack an adequate grasp on their finances, which makes approaching an adviser difficult. In both instances, an accounting professional could help an owner strategize their finances as well as mitigate the risk of missing key tax savings.
Maribel Del Real, owner of Del Real Tax Group, is a qualified CPA, is licensed in Illinois and Texas and has over a decade of experience working with small, mid-size and large companies. During her tenure with PricewaterhouseCoopers and R&M Consulting, she worked with clients including ExxonMobil, BP, Abbott Laboratories, and Anixter among others. During this time, she was determined to form her own practice and bring her vast accounting and tax knowledge to the small to mid-size companies within her community. By offering her services year round, it gives her the ability to focus on her clients throughout the annual cycle and provide personalized service.
Del Real Tax Group’s comprehensive menu of services includes tax planning, tax preparation, tax estimates/extension, bookkeeping, QuickBooks consulting, and sales tax and payroll services. “By advising clients throughout the year, we can build a big picture together. By planning properly, we can maximize deductions so that businesses pay less in taxes and keep more money in their bank accounts. By doing this, clients can make better decisions that help to lower their effective tax rate.” Del Real also provides tax services to individuals.
Del Real is certified in QuickBooks by Intuit and The Sleeter Group. In order to educate the local business community, Maribel has conducted free QuickBooks overview seminars and plans to create a workshop for entrepreneurs that reviews tax and accounting issues for start-up companies. What’s more, she has established a speed networking group (http://www.meetup.com/speednetworkingchicago/events/69719792/) in order to help her clients expand their professional network.
Mayor Robert Lovero commented, “We have a lot of professionals that live and work in Berwyn, including myself. We hope that you have a thriving business on our Main Street.” Jon Fey, BDC Board President, continued, “It’s wonderful to see a new business owner becoming part of our community and taking the time to provide technical assistance to our BDC members through the events that Maribel is creating. QuickBooks is the premier accounting software for small business, so I recommend anyone who is unfamiliar to attend her event.”
