Finding the Perfect Blend of Accounting Skills and Expertise

Every business is different when it comes to the type and level of accounting services needed. Some small businesses may only need bookkeeping services, while others benefit from many layers of accounting skills from bookkeepers to Chief Financial Officers.

If your business is in the small to mid-market range, generating $500,000 to $20 million in annual revenues, it may not make sense to have a full-time CFO, a full-time controller, and multiple bookkeepers with all the full-time salaries and benefits in your accounting department.

The good news is you can still get the advice of these high-level accounting skill sets while paying only for what you need. We work with business owners like you to create a customized package based on your company’s unique accounting needs.

Accounting System Selection, Setup, Customization, and Training

Having the right accounting system can make all the difference in the world.  We’re familiar with many accounting software options and can help you find the best fit for your business. If you’ve outgrown your current solution, we can help you manage the transition without missing a beat.

One secret in boosting accounting productivity is to make sure your accounting software is set up and customized correctly. We learn your requirements so we can tailor the accounting software to your business and reporting needs. Plus, we can train your staff on the new system so they can be up and running in no time.

Profitability Analysis

Do you wonder which product or service line is the most profitable for you?  We can perform an analysis of profitability by location, product, employee, or whatever grouping is meaningful for you.  This information will help you make better decisions about your revenue mix and make your business more profitable in the long term.

While most accountants stick to cursory expense reviews, we prefer to go deeper. We can help you identify costs that may be outside your industry norms, discover areas where your pricing might not cover your costs, and root out profit margins that should be higher.

If you maintain inventory in your business, we can help you lower carrying costs, determine out-of-stock conditions, and identify obsolete items.

Is your business project-based with job costing requirements? We can help you make sure it’s set up right, help you create more accurate estimates, and accelerate cash flow with timely progress billings.
