Ceterus has debuted Ceterus Tax, a managed tax service for small businesses.

The Ceterus Tax team will provide small business owners, entrepreneurs and franchisees with personal and business tax planning and preparation, along with tax filing services. The new service will be led by Ryan Cook, who has worked for Charleston, S.C.-based Ceterus for the past five years.

“We wanted to create a one-stop accounting solution that would empower entrepreneurs by providing them bookkeeping and tax under one roof,” said Ceterus CEO Levi Morehouse in a statement. “By uniting these services we’re transferring the stress of financial management to us from our customers, freeing owners to think strategically about growing businesses.”

Ceterus already manages the bookkeeping for many small business owners and franchisees, using a cloud-based service that pulls information directly from the business’s point of sale, bank and payroll provider into its own system. Clients using Ceterus’s bookkeeping service can continue to work with their own accountant.
