Frequently asked Questions

We work with most business owners and high-net-worth individuals.

Most all small business owners can benefit from accounting and bookkeeping.

The same applies for new business owners – the longer you delay getting your books in order, the harder it will be down the road to make good decisions and ensure you aren’t missing any tax deductions. 

Bookkeepers and assistants are typically the first hires successful entrepreneurs to make in their business.

If you haven’t had an accountant before, you have nothing to worry about! We will help you get your books caught up to date and get your technology in place to support the accounting within yourbusiness. 

If you already have a bookkeeper or accountant, we can still serve as your outsourced CFO, assist you with an accounting system implementation, provide you with advisory services, or help you with tax compliance and tax planning services. So, in short, we may work alongside your existing service provider. 

Alternatively, you may prefer that we take everything over, and we’re happy to do that!

Since we offer services virtually, we have clients in states all across the US. Whether you’re in California, like we are, Hawaii, or somewhere in between, we can help!

You bet. We can help you get them up to date. That being said, don’t hold off on doing so. The longer you wait, the bigger the mess and cost it is to fix. 

Yes, we do tax compliance and tax planning to ensure you pay as little of taxes as possible while also being compliant. 

Deciding who you want to help you with your accounting and bookkeeping is a big deal. Most business owners see a return on their investment when working with the right accountant. 

However, the best way to find out if you’re at that level or if we are a good fit for you is to book a complimentary call. We’ll be able to help you understand if and how we may be able to help you. We’re always honest, and that includes letting you know if it doesn’t make sense for us to work together. 

In most cases, yes.

Some of our clients just need us to set up their accounting and bookleeping software, and then they will take over the monthly accounting function.

Other clients desire for us to set up their accounting system and then have us candle the monthly accounting and bookkeeping so they can focus on growing their business.

For others, they already have their accounting system set up and staff in-house to do the work, but they need accounting support from advisory experts.

Whatever you need, we’re here to support you and your business. 

Our cost varies based upon your needs and wants. We’ll be able to provide you with a quote when you sign up. 

The best way to get started is to schedule a call. This call is always free and is used to understand if we are a good fit to help you. 

We value education. Check out some of our blogs below:
