It is the Client’s responsibility to provide, in a timely manner, all business income/expense supporting documents for processing. These documents include, but are not limited to:

  • Credit card and bank statements, along with copies of cancelled checks. If copies of cancelled checks are not provided by the financial institution as part of the statement, we may accept other records, such as ledgers, paystubs or information lists. ACR shall not be held liable/responsible, if such as documents are not deemed acceptable by the taxing authority, in the event of an audit. Furthermore, additional charges may apply, if we have to obtain/download copies of these cancelled checks from bank websites, due to the nature of such time consuming activity.
  • Receipts, invoices and/or any other supporting document related to deductions being claimed or intended to be claimed on Federal and State business tax return.
  • Client shall also provide to us, within fifteen days of receiving it, copies of any letters or correspondence received from government agencies. Client delays, or failure to provide in a timely manner, the documentation described herein, shall not waive the client’s responsibility of paying the monthly fee described in Paragraph 4.
  • Client understands that most businesses are required to file an income tax return each year. Most calendar-year entities must file by March 15 of the following year, unless an extension is requested. Therefore, client must provide all information and necessary documents to prepare the return, no later than January 15th. after the year ended. If client fails to do so, client agrees to pay an additional document-accumulation fee, for each month of documentation presented late for processing. (Fee does not apply to December’s documentation). If a the company files on a fiscal-year basis, then the fee applies to documentation turned in late for processing, after the 15th day of the following month, immediately after the tax year ends. (Fee will not apply to documentation corresponding to the last month of the tax year being reported). The fee will be calculated as follows: If the monthly fee paid by The Client, as described on paragraph 4 or as adjusted due to increased activity, whichever is higher, is less than $400.00, then fee is $100.00 per month of paperwork turned in late. If the monthly fee is more than $400.00, then the fee is $150.00 per month. The Client has the option to get this fee waived, by agreeing to request a 6-month extension to file the business tax return. However, any late filing penalties, fees or interest assessed by taxing authorities or resulting for filing late, will be the client’s sole-responsibility and will NOT be covered by Paragraph 10 below.


You promise to pay us in U.S. dollars, a fee of $VALUE IN US DOLLARS****** per month, plus any late fees, finance charges, adjustments, payroll fees, document accumulation fees and any other charges due on your account, according to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, starting in the month of MONTH-YYYY. The monthly fee has been based on answers you provided about your business. These answers include, but are not limited to: The number of bank accounts, credit cards, estimated amount of annual gross receipts, expected number of employees/subcontractors, average number of income/expense transactions each month and many other estimates, projections and assumptions affecting the company’s activities.

Client agrees that if at any point, the Company has no payroll or business activity on any given period, it does not waive The Client’s responsibility of paying the monthly fee described herein, since the business tax return must include the whole year of activity and mandatory monthly, quarterly and annual reports must still be prepared and filed with taxing authorities, even if no activity is being reported.

The monthly fee may be reviewed, at least once a year, for purposes of comparison to local or nationwide average fees charged by similar providers or to review tasks being performed to service your account, that may require additional work and to our discretion may not be feasible (i.e.: Personal transactions being paid out of business account).


Client acknowledges that, if at any point in time, the actual number of business transactions, gross receipts, number of employees/subcontractors or any other activities described on paragraph 4 of this Agreement, should go significantly higher, than those estimated by the Client at the time of signing this agreement, it will cause for the monthly fee to be reviewed and adjusted accordingly. We shall notify you of any fee increase, within 30 days, or as soon as we become aware of the change in activity. This adjustment may be necessary, to deal with the cost of serving your account or time consumption to process your documentation. It is also understood that, if the level of business activity should go lower, than those estimated at the time of the signing of this Agreement, it does not guarantee or imply, a decrease of the monthly fee assigned, unless otherwise specified or prior negotiation with us.


You authorize us to process your payment via direct debit to your business bank account, through the Automated Clearing House System, also known as ACH, via direct draft, Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or any other form of payment available to us, such as a debit/credit card on file or direct draft conversion of a business check. You agree at all times to have an active bank account on file with us for that purpose. You will be notified each month via e-mail or other electronic means available to us, about the fees due on your account and the payment due date. Electronic payments are free to the client. However, if the Client wishes to have a paper billing statement, it will be subject to an additional $5.00 administrative monthly fee, necessary to compensate for postage, paper, envelopes, toner and handling.


In the event that your business bank account, does not have enough funds to cover the monthly fee described herein, Client agrees that a NSF fee of $29.00 may be charged by our processing agent. Shall your account go unpaid for over 60 days, a one-time late fee of $29.00 per month will accrue, plus a minimum of $5.00, as finance charge or the maximum amount permitted by applicable law, whichever is higher. You also agree to pay a fee of $29.00, for any check given to us, as a form of payment and returned to us as unpaid, for any reason, by your financial institution.

If you or your financial institution closes your bank account, provide no other means of payment or no communication is received from the Client, we shall have the right to immediately discontinue providing the services and to transfer the account to an agency for collection. Client agrees to be responsible for the direct or indirect costs, related to the collection of any unpaid balances on your account, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, collection agency fees, arbitration and court costs. If the Client wishes to reinstate service, the balance due must be paid first, including late fees and finance charges. The Client shall be responsible for reimbursing any commissions and/or fees charged to us by collection agencies and/or third parties used to recover unpaid balances due on your account.

These records are property of the Client and are available for secure access at our website.

The Client reserves the right to request copies of such records at any time, while this Agreement is in force and for as long as the account is in good standing. Every year we may clean up the Client’s archive and return any documents related to tax periods beyond the 3-year statue of record keeping, imposed by the IRS. It will then be The Client’s responsibility, for saving such records and to have them ready for Federal or State authorities, if so required in the event of an audit or investigation. In the event that we may have physical business records and documents provided by you and need to be returned back to you, we may contact you to have those records picked up or have us mailed to you for an additional fee. However, if no positive response is received within 90 days, those records may be destroyed with no liability or responsibility to us.

Client agrees that ALL claims for reimbursement MUST be presented in a timely fashion and MUST be accompanied by a copy of the first notice received from the agency for verification purposes. This provision does not cover for penalties due to Client’s failure to pay tax liabilities on time or when required.
