Hi! My name is Cathy Derus. I’m a CPA who’s ready to help you feel confident about your personal and business finances so you can get back to doing what you love.
I started Brightwater Accounting as a way to help you improve your financial situation and alleviate some of that money stress so you can get back to doing the things you love: spending time with your family and friends, growing your own business, travelling, running marathons, and so on.
If you’re looking for help with your taxes or small business accounting, you’re in the right place. Enter your contact information below to receive more information about our services and to subscribe to the newsletter. As a “thank you,” you’ll receive a copy of our guide “Are You Running a Business or a Hobby?”
This guide will help you decide whether you have a business or hobby on your hands and then how to report your earnings and expenses on your tax return.
