A three-part plan designed to support your staff and systematize your business.
Systems and technology require quality people to bring them to life. You are assigned a dedicated bookkeeper who is responsible to document client specific information within a client manual. The client manual becomes a resource for us and for you, and it allows for a smooth transition in the event of a change in personnel on our side or on yours.
You are provided with cloud-based accounting software, a paperless receipt and bill capture system, and an accounting file backup service. You benefit from a collaborative approach to bookkeeping, where to the extent possible, we limit your staff involvement to providing the information we need to do the heavy lifting.
A big part of financial clarity is staying up-to-date. You or your staff meet with us on a weekly basis. The weekly meeting is the best time to ask and answer questions and to address any issues in the present. When your books are up-to-date, then your financial reports may be relied upon for making important decisions.
