Small Business Accounting Services
“Over the past year, we have had the pleasure of working with Christina M. Binagi and Mary Ellen Michaelson of Vrakas CPAS + Advisors. Both Christina and Mary Ellen have been beyond fantastic to work with. They are excellent at what they do, very prompt, courteous, professional and quite frankly, fun to work with. I can tell they both enjoy their jobs, which makes working with them an enjoyable experience. They certainly have made out lives easier and I would recommend them to anyone looking for any type of accounting or bookkeeping help.”
Determining the Level of Service You Need
For any small 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”?
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.
