Additional Notes

Complaint: We hired ****** ****** to incorporate our business and to set up our Quickbooks for a more stream-lined operation. Neither was completed. After a few emails and an interview in our office in early December of 2011 with ****** ******, we hired her to incorporate our business and set up our Quickbooks for better management. We hired her because she said she had done many corporations for contractors and assured us that she could set it up Correctly. After she began the process we had to continually contact her for further updates as to the status and completion of the corporation. The process had been drug out for so long that by the end of May, we realized that ****** ****** was not in a position to set things up correctly so we hired an attorney to complete it. , We did this because she did not perform the service she said she could do and in a timely manner. Her website says the corporate book only takes 10 days to receive, well ours took about 4 months. She said she had set up many corporations for contractors, well she could not answer our questions about how it would affect our son being an employee if he was named on the corporation. There were other things that she did not have knowledge of that were necessary to know in order to set up the corporation correctly and to get the best tax benefits. I have a concern that the many contractors that ****** ****** helped to incorporate as she said, may not have been done according to IRS standards. For this reason we are requesting a full refund of 1499.00 for non completion of the services we paid for.

Desired Settlement: A full refund of 1499.00

Business Response: Business' Initial Response
DBS was hired to incorporate the business and included in the package was the setup of a new QuickBooks file. The client delayed the completion of the setup of the corporation because they could not decide which family members they wanted listed as shareholders. They were notified in email as well as through phone calls that DBS could not go any further until we knew which persons were to be listed on the corporation. DBS has responded in a timely manner to emails, phone calls and letters. At times, the client has taken weeks, if not months, to respond. We received a letter from a law firm directing DBS to release all files, materials, legal documents, etc. on June 7, 2012. The corporate book was hand delivered to the law firm on that day. It was delivered complete with an exception of 3 items that could not be finalized until we received information regarding the shareholders. We did not hear anything further from the client until September 6,, 2012 when they requested a refund of $1215. DBS responded via certified mail with a checklist of items that were completed as outlined in the package they purchased and included a refund check for $179. This amount refunded the setup of the QuickBooks file, as well as the 3 items that could not be completed in the corporate book due to not receiving the information requested. Again, now here we are 3 months later and the client has now filed a complaint with the BBB. The timeline of events clearly demonstrate the response time from the client and how this is the cause of the delay in providing services. DBS has made every attempt to resolve this with the client and has issued a refund check for services not rendered.

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
