How does your historical data integrate?
Your existing data is transferred into compatible new and/or existing accounting software during the initial set-up process. I retain your original data as a backup and can access at later dates if needed.
Do I still need my CPA?
YES! It is very important to retain and keep the services of a CPA. Accountants & Bookkeepers keep up the daily maintenance of your records; CPAs prepare corporate taxes and audit your records.
The most asked question; how much does this service cost?
Historically clients pay less than what it costs in traditional staffing. Estimated hidden savings in time may be as much as 50% of our cost. My fees are based on volume and complexity of each client. I meet with you to work up a detailed scope of the service required, scenarios of an hourly rate and/or contractual rate; it is determined what the best fit is for you. In most cases my service costs less than hiring a full or part-time employee. In addition, you don’t pay taxes or the fringe benefits for my services and it’s a tax write-off!
