Small Business

 

Your first call to Fiscal Foundations brings us to your office to learn more about your business and what services you are looking for.  Then we will jointly develop a plan to best achieve your goals and objectives.  All of our services are completely customizable to fit your needs and budget.  We are happy to work at your business location or home office, or perform the work offsite.

If you are like most small businesses, you don’t need a full time bookkeeping person on staff.   However, you do need help from someone with experience who can make sure your books are up-to-date and accurate and knows how to get helpful information that you can use to run your business out of your QuickBooks or other bookkeeping system.    We work with every size business; those who haven’t yet hired their first employee to those with 70+ employees.  That said, most small business require only a few hours per week to do everything!  Our people are experts and they work as fast, without compromising accuracy and completeness.

In some cases, we do all of the bookkeeping for a client.  In others, we may come in on a less frequent basis, doing just the more difficult tasks and reviewing the work done in-house for accuracy and completeness.  For some clients we do clean up/catch up work (in some cases several years worth).  We also provide QuickBooks training for those who want to do all or a portion of  it themselves.  Our services are flexible.  We are happy to change the level or frequency of our services as the needs of your company change.  In seasonal businesses, we can provide more help when their is more work to be done and less when it isn’t as busy.

We’ve also are the ‘back office’ for a number of CPA firms in the Twin Cities.  If you currently have your CPA doing your day-to-day bookkeeping, we are sure to be a less expensive option.   We love CPAs.  They are experts at doing your taxes and tax planning.  However, they are not generally experienced bookkeepers, QuickBooks consultants, and they hardly ever provide training.  They won’t come to you, you have to go to them.  We specialize in performing the day-to-day bookkeeping tasks for small businesses. We think it is critically important to have checks and balances built into your system.  For this reason, your CPA should not be responsibile for record keeping.

We recognize that chemistry and good communication skills are as vital as exceptional knowledge and experience in the small business environment. We strive to find the right consultant or bookkeeping person for your needs based upon industry expertise, software program, location, availability, and personality.  Our knowledge, experience and advice will assist you in establishing and maintaining a framework of administrative processes, document management, and business performance information that will enhance the efficiency and stability of your organization.  Once you’ve been assigned a consultant, it’s like having a Controller on staff – just when you need it and only a phone call away.

Unlike individual contract bookkeepers, we have a depth of staff, E&O insurance and guarenteed quality.    You can be assured of their expertise, as we have put them through our testing process prior to being hired, and all have at least 10 years of non-clerical bookkeeping experience.  They’ve also undergone our extensive background check and screening process so you can be sure they are trustworthy.

Best of all, you can enjoy worry-free bookkeeping. While we ensure your books are done accurately, completely and on time, so you can spend your valuable time growing your business.
