How do I know which bookkeeping package is best for me?

This all depends on what your company’s needs are.  The pricing packages are just a baseline, and fully customizable.  Let’s say you have 3 bank accounts, but only want quarterly reporting instead of monthly reporting, we can customize our packages to meet your needs.

What will you need from me to get started?

During our onboarding process,  we will get to know your company, what you do, what your concerns our, and  how we can best solve your bookkeeping needs. We will set up automatic bank feeds, get you set up with a system to store your source documents securely.

Do we need to meet in person to get started?

No need to meet in person to get started! If you live in the Tampa, FL area, that can be an option, but is not needed. We do like to set up a telephone call at least to get to know one another, and meet your new teammates!

Do you have experience in my industry?

Depends on what your industry is.  We have worked with Retail, Service, Restaurants, Photography, and Marketing companies.  We have worked with businesses with 1-300 employees and $500K-$10M in annual revenue. We are always open to learning more industries as well! We like a challenge. ☺

In a nutshell, you will digitally send the documents we need to a secure cloud hosted platform, and we take it from there!

Do I need to organize my records & receipts?

So can you mail us a shoebox? We would not prefer this, but you can.  However, it helps to know how you categorize items so we can clean up and advise as needed.  It is always nice to have financials that are organized so you, as the business owner can see the real picture of your company to help steer business decisions.
