Firm Profile

"My accountant does not help me with my business," is a comment frequently heard from small business owners. Accountants are often viewed as a necessary expense to cope with the record keeping and compliance functions. The accounting profession must accept the blame for this attitude because its members frequently assume a passive rather than active role in the business affairs of the client. In addition, small businesses do not generate the volume to support full-time sophisticated individuals that fulfill the controller and treasurer functions. Our managerial accounting services can provide the small business owner with the following benefits:

  • Improved cash flow
  • Enhanced profitability
  • Reduced operating expenses
  • Improved control and stability

The accountant, acting as controller and treasurer, ensures the achievement of these benefits in two ways:
Developing a comprehensive knowledge of the client's business, strengths, and weakness’, and competition, and establishing realistic goals based upon this data.
Providing the appropriate consulting and maintaining management reporting systems designed to achieve the goals.
