Emanuel Gilkes has prepared my business and personal tax returns for the past couple of years, and I continue to use his services even after making a move out of state. He has provided me with excellent service, as he understands my specific lifestyle, which involves travel. Mr. Gilkes determined that certain expenses were deductible that other services missed.Feb 24, 2013
I knew I wanted to get started in the business of my dream. I always wanted to get in the elderly home care business. I did not know what to do. I really needed much guidance. Mr. Gilkes sat with me for many hours. His questions and guidance helped me crystallize my thoughts and better understand my responsibility as a businesswoman, a service provider and an employer. Then he got me started. He helped me register my business with the State Secretary and got my Employers Identification Number from the IRS. He prepared a thorough, very informative business plan. He helped me with all the paper requirements for the bank. I was approved for a $95,000 loan and a line of credit. It was a dream come true. He then provided all the quarterly reports the bank needed. I paid off my loan early. He helped me register with other tax and city and government entities. He now compiles all my external reports. Every month he comes to my office and prepares my financial statements, he prints these statements and discusses my previous month's performance. I adopt many of his recommendations. Then he files all my income taxes, payroll taxes, sales taxes and franchise tax. I operate a very successful and growing home care business because of the advice and services I get from Mr. Gilkes. Many of my friends are also using him and are happy with my recommendation.Feb 11, 2013

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Look for a Service Provider who is focused on optimal client's solution.

Such a Service Provider takes on and completes each engagement as a divine responsibility to pursue the best solutions and offer maximum client's benefit. Such a Service Provider will therefore be keeping current with updates in his/her industry, engaged in professional associations, holds jealously his/her professional integrity and pursues professional distinction.
