Business Spotlight: John Craig Bookkeeping & Taxes 

A small business must be mindful of its bottom line. Often to keep within a budget, a business owner will try to save some pennies by handling some of the day-to-day tasks of conducting business by themselves. That may be fine for some aspects of a business such as handling correspondence or ordering supplies, but for other areas, that do-it-yourself attitude can be an invitation for trouble. 

“Accounting/bookkeeping is really time consuming for most business owners, and trying to handle this on their own can create a lot of confusion about taxes, assessing how profitable your business is, and it also leave a business vulnerable to security issues such as fraud, etc.,” said John Craig, owner of John Craig Bookkeeping & Taxes.  

A Pittsburgh-native, Craig is a graduate of Robert Morris University and has both corporate and personal bookkeeping experience. In 2012, Craig founded John Craig Bookkeeping & Taxes on Troy Hill and has been aiding clients with bookkeeping, tax preparation, payroll, debt elimination and tax planning. He works with clients all over Western Pennsylvania. “I will sit with everyone from businesses making over a million dollars per year to ones able to file a simple EZ tax return,” said Craig. 

The old proverb says that “Time is money.” And both time and money are precious resources to a business, and John Craig Bookkeeping & Taxes can help you to preserve both. “Hiring a bookkeeper and tax professional does save time and money. A bookkeeper takes care of the back-office things that most business owners don’t want to do. This frees up more time for them to do their core money-making activities. And tax preparation saves time for the person that isn’t analytical.” Craig said. Also, engaging Craig’s services can save money, especially if you don’t keep up with tax law. You may overlook deductions, so having a professional help is the best solution. 

Craig can either come to your office or you can come to his—whatever is most convenient for you. He charges on a case-by-case basis, depending on the needs of the business or individual. “I can be as hands-on or hands-off as need be,” said Craig. 

“My passion is helping businesses and individuals grow. Helping families become better financially or helping a business owner save $1,000 in taxes so they can put it to grow their business or put it away for retirement is one of my greatest joys,” Craig said.
