Fall is here, and along with pumpkin spice lattes that have taken the world by a storm, there is something else to think about. 

October 1 marks the beginning of the final quarter of the year. What does that mean for you? Well, it can mean a lot of things for different people and different business but we will focus on three things to think about. 


Evaluate may seem a bit scary, but evaluation is essential in running a successful business. Now is the time to think about how things are going, so that if changes are ready to be had, you can get ready now to roll them out with  the new year. 

How is your accounting platform working for you? If you are thinking about switching your accounting platform, there’s no better time that January 1st. Is your current accounting solution based in the cloud? The cloud is the way of the future. We love using Xero and recommend it to all our clients. 

Payroll Solution 

Another thing to think about with the beginning of the quarter and end of the year is payroll. Now is a time to to get ready if you plan to change your payroll solution as of January 1.

Is your payroll linked up to your accounting software? Is your payroll in the cloud? We like using Gusto because it is based in the cloud and integrates seamlessly with Xero. If you are thinking of switching to a new payroll solution and want to see if Gusto is a good option for you,  contact us at info@bbbooksinc.com.

New 1099 Filing Deadline

Did you know that the 1099 filing deadlines have changed? This is important to know if you are a business owner. Beginning with the 2016 forms, businesses need to have all 1099-MISC with Box 7 amounts filed by January 31.
