CPA Advice Leads to Growth

Stephen Gibson is an entrepreneur-in-residence at Brigham Young University, and has published a column with his reflections of simple, yet solid, advice he gained from his CPA of 26 years.

CPAs may want to review his list for a glimpse into what a few simple ideas means to him. The areas covered include:

  • differences between cash and profit
  • leasing versus buying
  • the value of an S Corpoation
  • multiple S Corporations
  • spreading stock ownership among family members
  • cash versus accrual accounting
  • filing timely tax returns.
