bookkeeping ADVICE by a cpa
I'll go through an initial review of existing systems and identify best practices for ongoing work.
I'll generate reporting in “ready to use” format for you and your tax accountant.
I’ll meet with you on a regular basis with my CFO hat on to review your financial reports, providing insights and recommendations so you can make informed business decisions based on real data.
To continue to be successful, every business needs efficient procedures, means for tracking and continued analysis of valuable data and the ability to use that information to make informed decisions.
I can help set up those systems and teach you how use them and stay on top of it all.
