Financial Management & Accounting

Financial Management Services

If you need higher level financial management, our financial managers can produce cash flow forecasts to manage operations, financial models to raise investment capital, budgets for reporting to owners and/or a Board of Directors, contracts to fairly allocate risk, and strategic plans to support our clients in creating the enterprise of their dreams. We bring leaders together, identify new opportunities for growth, and champion systems of shared, real-time information flow internally and with external auditors, tax preparers, and investors.

When considering what’s best for the people in your organization and what’s best for the organization’s financial health, one need not be sacrificed for the other. Yes, we’re money people, but money doesn’t always come first.  We understand financial sustainability serves as a platform for businesses, empowering them to achieve great things that have a positive effect on people’s lives.

One of the most challenging tasks of organizational leaders is managing their cash flow. Our financial managers can help you get the right tools in place so you can stay on top of your current and future cash position and then provide access to cash for short-term and long-term needs. Whether it’s setting up the right reporting, creating forecasts, automating cash inflows, preparing a loan package, or securing investment capital, we can help you keep your cash flowing.

Accounting Services

When we serve as your outsourced accounting department, we fully understand the critical role we play in liberating you to engage in your efforts toward building the company. We do that by providing efficient and effective accounting services along with the financial scaffolding to help you create positive change, growth and increased profitability. We’ll quickly become an integral part of your organization by providing mindful accounting and/or financial solutions with a clear focus on continuous improvement.

If your accounting needs are more basic, our Bookkeepers don’t just record debits and credits. They create an accounting system that is a treasure trove of financial intelligence powering our clients’ data-driven decisions rather than leaving them to manage by gut. M&A Bookkeepers are available to create financial statements and reports required for tax, audit, and grant compliance concurrently with detailed management and operational reports.

Effective documentation serves a crucial role in any organization; it creates a repository of transferrable jobs and tasks. Having quality job and task documentation has many benefits. It can mean that things keep humming even when staff members take time off to rejuvenate. It can increase the value of a commercial business seeking a buyer. We’ve found that it also helps cultivate a collaborative mentality that benefits the entire team…and ultimately, those served by the organization. If there are areas in your accounting department that are not effectively documented, we can help write a standard operating procedures manual for those areas.

We also look at areas within your accounting system that are costing you more than they should be. These could include areas of duplicate data entry, time spent on manual reports, and bottlenecks in general. In addition, we monitor accounting data trends/comparisons for your ongoing operations and suggest improvements that can save you time and money.
