Determining the Level of Service You Need

For any business, managing your books can be time-consuming and complex. Many entrepreneurs struggle to stay organized and make confident financial decisions. The right assistance can eliminate stress and free up valuable time. Running a business comes with all kinds of responsibilities…are you currently getting the assistance and advice you need?

If you’d like to be able to answer the below questions differently, it may be time to reach out for guidance:

  • Are your periods closed timely?
  • Does your company have current financial data to aide in important business decisions?
  • Understand the difference between cash and accrual basis financials?
  • Do you only look at the net income number?
  • What about the small steps to “protecting your bank account”?
  • Does your software produce reliable accounting? 
Outsourced Controllership

At Vrakas, we understand the challenges you face in finding someone reliable to watch over your books. Our team specializes in outsourced controllership in both long and short term scenarios. Our staff of CPAs can act as your bookkeeper, a replacement for your controller or a temporary fill in for any level of accounting personnel. We make sure your office runs smoothly in the event of unexpected personnel changes. We can also work as a team with your current staff and provide assistance as needed.

Systems Set Up

Accounting software is a key investment for any self-sufficient small business. If you are starting a business or currently outsourcing the preparation of your financial statements, the experts at Vrakas can help you select and implement the right software to meet your unique needs. We provide experts in two of the most user-friendly software solutions available today, QuickBooks and Sage 50 (Peachtree). Our accountants also have experience with other software products to assist with your needs – just ask!

QuickBooks can provide useful and timely information in the form of financial statements, reports and graphs. However, it can only provide this information if you purchase the right product and then install, setup and use it properly. We don’t just help you use the software, we help you use it more efficiently and more effectively. As Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors®, we can work with you and your team to insure you are using QuickBooks to its full potential. 

Vrakas offers the following solutions to help meet your QuickBooks needs:

  • Personal Training
  • Installation
  • Setup
  • Support
  • Review

Through our customized implementation and training services, we provide small businesses all the tools necessary for internally managing financial operations. Going one step further, Vrakas provides ongoing support to ensure you are always getting the most from your chosen software solution.
