Accounting Services

Helping you do what you do best by doing what I do best. 

Hello, I'm Jim Layton

If you are a small business owner and would rather not toss and turn at night worrying about your accounting, help yourself sleep better by having a trusted advisor handle your accounting needs. I'm a CPA and specialize in all aspects of small business accounting and tax.

I'd love to help you do what you do best by doing what I do best. How much is your business worth? An accurate business valuation is critical to selling your business, managing buyouts and making sure you are on track for retirement. Let's talk.

The initial valuation consultation is free. Perhaps you suspect fraud or financial misconduct, or need litigation support.

I’m passionate about strengthening our future business leaders through education. I serve on the faculty at Georgetown University where I teach courses on Sports Economics and Sports Business & Finance.

I've also served as an adjunct professor for accounting and auditing on the graduate and undergraduate levels at the University of Maryland, College Park. I’d be pleased to give a presentation to your group about any of these subjects. 


As a valued client, you get a secure, password-protected QuickBooks account to store and access your important financial documents from anywhere at any time.


Tax Services

Planning is the key to successfully and legally reducing your tax liability. We go beyond tax compliance and proactively recommend tax saving strategies to maximize your after-tax income.


We offer payroll solutions that meet your business's needs and enable you to spend time doing what you do best--running your company.


As a small business owner you have more important things to do than to keep your own books. We take care of your books for you, so you can get back to the job of running your business and generating profits.

 Forensic Accounting 

I have years of experience as a fraud investigator and have been an expert witness or litigation consultant in federal and state courts on behalf of privately held business and government agencies. I scrutinize every detail while keeping the big picture in mind. 


Managing your customer relationships is critical to your success. Your customers aren't just numbers to you. They shouldn't be just numbers in your QuickBooks either!  If you find you need a little help with your Customer Center, give me a call or send me a message. I am a certified QuickBooks Proadvisor and am happy to help with any QuickBooks needs you have.
