A tailored service that works for you
As a business owner, you have more important things to do than worry about your bookkeeping! Let us take care of your bookkeeping so that you can concentrate on growing your business.
We are system agnostic. We believe that as each business is unique so too are its needs. We will not push you down the “one-size-fits-all” route – rather we will use our expertise to put together a tailored solution – specific for your needs. Using accounting systems like Xero, Quickbooks and MYOB Live, combined with our expertise, we can streamline your accounting process. Whether you are a start-up with big aspirations or a mature business looking for efficiency, Integer will provide the right solution for you today and in the future.
The initial setup (or initial cleanup) of your books is cumbersome. However, it is a necessary evil. Most accountants don’t take the time setup your books correctly in the beginning but we view this step as the most important. Our initial setup of your bookkeeping will allow us to gain a deep understanding of your business & create the customized process necessary to keep your books well-maintained.
Why keep good books if you don’t have access to them? Any substantial decision that you make during the day should factor in your financial well-being. If you can’t access this information 24-7, it inhibits your ability to make quality decisions. This is why we set you up in the cloud as our second step. The days of calling your accountant and asking them to send you an updated Income Statement are over!
Financial Statement Preparation
Almost anyone can be taught basic accounting in a few hours. However, it take foresight and experience to setup account groupings, create custom reports and then turn the reports into useful information for you. We not only create customized reports for you, we also analyze them to help you benchmark against other companies in your industry.
Budgeting & Forecasting
If you do not periodically budget, you are putting your financial future in jeopardy. A good budget should help you estimate expenditures & anticipate revenue. Upon the creation of a budget, we will continually refer to them to measure your company’s performance against what your expectation was. When you have large swings in your “budget to actual”, we will help you identify any weaknesses or events that caused your business to fall short of your expectations.
Cash Flow Management
A good budget will help you limit your expenditures and capital waste. However, cash flow management is more than just budgeting. We provide companies the ability to estimate the amount of cash that they will have on hand at any time in the future. This can help us identify any potential cash shortfalls that could occur in the future. Additionally, we teach business owners how to read cash flow statements to help them understand where their cash is going. An income statement only tells part of the picture. You need to be able to understand a cash flow statement to see the entire picture.
At the end of the year, there will be no more waiting on your accountants to close the books and then send to your CPA. We keep our clients’ books up to date and we will be able to start your tax return almost immediately after the close of the year. We can save you money on tax preparation fees because your books will not need any cleanup & we will already be familiar with your company’s year. No more headaches or angst from filing your tax return last minute.
