Jerry Jones CPA
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a CPA that you deal directly with, that knows the Self Storage business, that works in all 50 states and is there for you when you need him?
Following construction and 2 years of operating my self storage facility, I had become uneasy with my previous accountant’s fees and related IRS filings. My search for alternatives led me to Jerry. His knowledge of the storage business resulted in significant savings that had not been taken advantage of by my previous accountant. Now I can feel comfortable by giving Jerry a call on small considerations, as well as major financial planning. For business or personal financing I highly recommend Jerry to all of my customers and friends.

Jerry Jones, The Self Storage CPA, Announces New Website

Site Offers Information Specific to the Self-Storage Industry

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 15, 2013

Jerry Jones, The Self Storage CPA, has announced the launch of his new website at http://www.theselfstoragecpa.com. In addition to information about Mr. Jones’ services, the new site offers a variety of links and a wealth of information specific to the self-storage industry.

For the past 25 years, Jerry has specialized in accounting and tax services for self-storage operators/owners. He has designed monthly/annual management reports to help the owners of facilities with cash flow and expense analysis. “I can give owners a monthly/prior year comparison and three-to-five-year comparative statements by facility,” he explains, adding that he has also designed a 13-month cash flow statement which is great for seasonal comparisons. All the income/expense statements are designed so that every line item is the same on every statement.

“Self-storage is a special asset class that requires industry-specific knowledge when it comes to accounting and taxes,” says Jones. “These reports were designed for self-storage operators to facilitate cash flow and operational management.”

Inside Self Storage
Web-Based Self-Storage Software and Facility Data:

When it comes to management software, what’s the difference between “Web-based” and “Web-enabled”? Many of you have been deluged with these terms when shopping for software to run your self-storage facility and may be confused by them. You may also be unclear about which software companies provide which model.

In self-storage, “Web-based” is sometimes misused to include a PC-based Windows application that’s accessed via Terminal Services (Remote Desktop Service). The program runs on a computer in a distant location but can be accessed through a remote desktop connection.
