Frequently Asked Accounting Questions

Why should I choose a monthly accountant vs. less frequent methods of accounting?

Monthly accounting services provide substantially more value than only an annual service. If an accountant only sees your numbers once a year, it is too late to offer advice that would have helped to make that year more profitable. And definitely too late to lower your tax liability for a year that is already over with. 

How can I transition from in-house to outsourced accounting?

Transitions are tricky, but preparing your business to switch to an outsourced accountant doesn’t have to be hard. Make sure your new financial partner is a good fit, plan ahead and be sure to budget enough time, set goals, and be mindful of potential obstacles.

Why should I separate my business and personal finances?

It’s the law. The government requires you to maintain a separate set of books for your business and you are not allowed to intermingle business and personal funds. In a nutshell, the government doesn’t want you to use your business as a personal piggy bank. 

How can I tell if I've outgrown my current accounting firm?

If you’re reading this, obviously you have some doubts, do they respond to you when you need them to? or are you constantly chasing them for answers to your questions? Do they come to you with new ideas to not only help you with your taxes but also help you help and grow your business? Are they actively involved in helping you set retirement goals, so you can walk away from your business? Have they helped you put together an exit strategy so you can eventually leave your business? Do they review your personal needs, like life insurance, health insurance, disability insurance, wills and estate planning? Do they ask you about your family and how that can affect you in the future, for example, elderly parents and how to deal with their future health issues and future estate issues? Do you have a need for a trust to protect your assets, and perhaps a child with physical and developmental issues that you’re concerned about their future?

How does better accounting affect my bottom line?

Obviously if we do our job right that puts more money in your pocket.

Our customer service sets our firm apart. We make it our priority to reach out to clients on a consistent basis because we care about the success of your business. Our experienced team of accountants also provide proactive business advice and tax planning, allowing you to maximize your profits.

How much does monthly accounting cost? What factors go into the pricing?

There is an old saying that you get what you pay for, if you go bargain shopping then stop here as we are not a $.99 cent store. We are a mid-sized accounting firm with more resources than a one man outfit or small accounting firm. We can do everything a large accounting firm does without charging their type of fees. We will do as much or as little as you want us to do. We charge a fair price for our services. 

What questions should I ask when choosing the right accountant for my business?

Working with a professional accounting service offers you security and peace of mind. It’s a smart business choice for your company, but you need to decide which accountant or accounting firm is right for you.

  1. Do they have experience with businesses like yours.
  2. How much experience do they have with businesses?
  3. Do they provide financial planning assistance?
  4. How big is the firm? Is it a one person, or is there a staff?
  5. Is their fee structure fixed, or do they charge every time you pick up the phone to call?
  6. If I need to get a loan, does the firm have relationships with banks?
  7. What kind of support do they offer if you get audited?
  8. Are they just end-of-year tax preparers, or do they offer proactive tax planning?
  9. Will they reconcile your accounts every month? Do they provide a solid audit trail?
  10. Do they also do payroll?
  11. Will they prepare a financial statement for you every month — and help you analyze and understand it?

What does the monthly accounting process look like?

Our monthly accounting process starts with receiving your source documents. Our staff compiles the information and reports back to you with a profit and loss statement, balance sheet, and general ledger. These monthly financial reports are presented in digital or hard copy form and become the foundation for our monthly conversations.

When should I consider outsourcing my accounting?

If your business is too small to hire an in-house accountant or you simply don’t have the desire to do it yourself, you should consider outsourcing the task. While QuickBooks is used by many small-business owners, the software can be more complicated than first realized. By outsourcing your accounting, you free yourself to focus on other aspects of your business.

What accounting system do you use?

We primarily use three systems: Drake Software, Canopy and Quickbooks. That being said, we will work with other systems depending on your preferences and needs.

How can I transition from in-house to outsourced accounting?

Transitions are tricky, but preparing your business to switch to an outsourced accountant doesn’t have to be hard. Make your new financial partner is a good fit, plan ahead and be sure to budget enough time, set goals, and be mindful of potential obstacles.

Why hire a monthly accountant instead of an annual one?

Truthfully, not all business owners see the need, but our clients sure do! We provide consulting and business advice throughout the year. Our proactive approach allows you to see trends earlier, and spot any issues before they become larger problems. Monthly financial statements are a tool to stay on top of your business, which allows you to focus on growing your profits.
