Financial Reporting & Analysis - One-time or On-going.
Let us take a look at your financial reporting mechanisms. Are you getting the numbers you need on a timely basis? Do you know your cash position, inventory, AR, AP, when you need to? Are you doing monthly variance analysis to see crucial trends? Do you have a budget and are you comparing actual results to it. Is there a cash flow forecast so that you can be sure you'll have funds available when needed.
For as little as $250 OnTrack Accounting can provide a detailed analysis of where you stand with your financial reporting timeliness and accuracy, and what you need to get to where you want to be.
Budgeting & Forecasting
They teach you in MBA school about the crucial need for any business to setup a workable budget - to see where you've been - and forecast - to see where you are going; yet many small businesses have neither the time nor experience in how to go about this. We can take the pain out, and guide you through the process of establishing and using effective budgeting and forecasting. If your not looking at both the income and cost sides of your business on a monthly basis, and.or not looking ahead to see where you are going to be in two to six months, then call OnTrack Accounting and let us help. We can establish these processes for as little as $500, then you can run things from there, or we can stick around to help.
Medium to small-size businesses run lean and mean - in today's environment this must be a given. Typically it is not easy or cheap to add personnel to help get your accounting caught up for year-end and tax filings. But don't just let this go until it's either too late or too painful. Call OnTrack Accounting to help fill the gap. We can come in and provide very cost-effective help and experience to ensure that your books can be accurately closed for the year, and the appropriate data provided to your CPA. And, if you need an CPA, or a new CPA, we can help you there also.
Troubleshooting System Problems/Inconsistancies
There are two key elements to maintaining accurate and useful accounting and financial records; people, and the systems they use. Are you getting the most out of your accounting system? Is it easy to work in? Are you finding you are having to do data entry more than once? Are you getting the reports you need in a timely AND accurate fashion? If your experiencing dismay with your system, with it being either too slow and time-consuming, or unreliable, please don't hesitate to call. OnTrack Accounting can conduct of straightforward review of what you have, compared to what you need and want, and provide you will either suggestions for improving your current system, or analysis and recommendations for moving to an alternative platform.
Training and Process Development
I mentioned the people aspect above. No matter how good the accounting software you use, it will only be as good as the people who use it. Many individuals doing transaction processing for companies are provided with very little training in terms of the concepts and principles of accounting and accounting and financial processes. However, it is surprising how quickly they can be brought up to speed when knowledge, structure and a bit of encouragement is provided. OnTrack Accounting can provide an integrated approach that combines knowledge of your software's capabilities and experience in managing accounting process with a tried and true ability to impart these facilities to your people so as to make them effective custodians of your accounting system.
