How Formations helped me?

I have been with Formations for about a month, they are already helping me to put things in order and manage my S-corp:


  • Bookkeeping
  • Processing payroll
  • Monthly reconciliation of my finances.
  • Keeping my business compliant with the IRS
  • Full customer support and access to experts any time with my bookkeeping, taxes, and accounting

I file my own taxes. I was a W2 employee for most of my life. Now that I’m self-employed and have to file as an S-corp, I just wanted somebody to help me through that process without having to go to a standard accountant.

Getting Onboard with Formations

“When I was a W-2 employee, I filed my own taxes. Now that I file as an S-corp, I want Formations to help me understand the amount of taxes I need to pay. I want to understand how to control my income and save on taxes.”

Alex opened his own business about a year ago, after years that he worked as an employee. He understood that being self-employed could be both rewarding and challenging, and he was ready to start his new adventure in real estate. Alex is a self-motivated, fast learning person who wants to understand all the aspects of being a business owner. He did his own research and concluded that filing his taxes as an S-corp will save him money in taxes. He opened his own LLC and filed the S-election.

Alex needed some guidance in managing his S-corp, he wanted to understand the amount of taxes he has to pay, the process of paying quarterly taxes, and processing payroll. He partnered with Formations both to get expert help in managing an S-corp and to learn the details of his own business financials from a tax perspective. He is ready to learn all the details and tax calculations, maximizing his tax benefits and saving.
