Fiscal Foundations is committed to helping small businesses build a firm fiscal foundation for success. We not only believe, we KNOW small business is the heart of our American economy and democracy, employing 58% of the workforce and producing 40% of the gross national product. Entrepreneurs are men and women of courage, commitment, ingenuity and initiative. They don’t sit back waiting for politicians or others to create their destinies or solve their problems. They know that making dreams happen is not the result of magic, but of putting their ideas, perseverance and resources on the line to bring their vision into reality. Small business is most likely to be the hero when it comes to getting the economy back on its feet and creating the job security we all so desperately need. Our company is committed to supporting that effort by providing the tools, training and services for setting up and maintaining the accounting systems that support small businesses in managing and growing their companies. Accounting is the “language of business”. The bottom line is—to succeed in business, you MUST understand accounting—thus our mission!

We offer three ways of helping:

1. Training, set up and customized bookkeeping services to client companies –

  • New company set up with QuickBooks
  • One-on-one or staff training in QuickBooks
  • Training in small business accounting
  • Customized bookkeeping support
  • On-call remote or on-site support for QuickBooks problems/questions

2. On line training programs (in development) – ADD YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS TO OUR LIST to receive announcements of our complete online curriculum for small business accounting coming soon!

AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP (Vary with topic and length of session)

  • To reinforce how understanding accounting and setting up a good accounting system is critically important to small business success.
  • To give small business owners (and nonprofit managers) a preview of how QuickBooks works and demonstrate its completeness of features to address all their accounting needs, and its user friendliness even for non-accountants.
  • To acquaint business owners with areas of special concern and requirements, i.e. payroll tax deposit/reporting requirements/deadlines; sales tax reporting/paying (optional by state); year-end closing/readying books for CPA/tax preparation; 1099 preparation for subcontractors. Demonstrate how QuickBooks handles this tracking, report preparation, and reminders for deadlines.
