It’s a FACT…

50% of businesses fail in their first five years (Source: SBA), it just makes good business sense to find ways to increase your chances of success with your business.

What’s the most frequent reason for small business failure?

Why do most small businesses fail? According to a U.S. Bank study, a whopping 82% of businesses that failed cited cash flow problems as a factor in their failure.

Hiring a bookkeeper, using cloud-based software like QuickBooks, and enlisting a CPA can all help to keep your cash flow in check.

As an Independent Contractor, you only pay for services you need without the expense of an employee salary, payroll taxes and office space. We can do the books remotely for a business anywhere in the U.S.

We can handle transactions weekly, monthly or quarterly depending on your needs. Organizing your office work flow and documenting processes for easy transitions is another service we provide.

Procedure Documentation and Office Organization

“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” –  John Wooden

Often times we just do something to get it done, without thinking about how we may need to access the information in the future. The result can be wasted time and disorganization. We can work with you to determine the best way to do a task based on work flow and help you document the process so that if need be, someone new could step in and do the task. – Read More
