Accountant Launches Two

Posted: December 5, 2016 | Press

A Laguna Hills accountant and certified fraud examiner has started two companies, one designed to help small-business owners remember tax deadlines, the other targeting restaurants with its bookkeeping services.

Mona Scimeme, who's operated RRS Accounting Services for 16 years in Laguna Hills, created both.

Aliso Viejo-based RRS Tax Reminders is a cloud-based software service that sends email reminders to subscribers who pay $99 a year. The emails alert them to impending state and federal tax deadlines and include links for instructions and forms for annual business filings. Missing tax deadlines can result in fees of $250 or more, Scimeme said.

It's also a good way for real estate professionals to make sure they do all of the filings on their properties at the proper time, including annual state franchise tax, she said.

Scimeme started the other startup, Munita LLC, with business partner Sherry Roberts. The Laguna Hills-based firm provides traditional accounting services, specializing in franchisees, franchisors, and privately-owned restaurant locations.
