Accounting & Financial Services Based on Your Business
You have questions? Our team has answers.
As a business owner, I spend more time than I would like taking care of the accounting needs of the business. How can you help me redirect my focus?
Of course, you would rather be working “on” your business instead of “in” your business. Your time is limited, and you want to spend it working on the core of your growing business. By partnering with the Business Services and Solutions Team, you can have the peace of mind knowing the accounting part of your business is being handled by skilled and efficient professionals. You’re a business owner, not an accountant – that is our job. This is our passion. Partner with us so you can focus on essential revenue generating practices for your business.
I have an accountant on staff, but worry about how operations will continue if they retire, need to take maternity/medical leave or simply don't come to work tomorrow. How can you help?
These types of events can cause serious interruption to business and accounting processes. Holbrook & Manter’s Business Services and Solutions Team can seamlessly step in during this crucial time. In fact, many businesses then choose to work with our team instead of hiring a new employee, as our costs are lower than offering salary/wages, benefits and vacation pay. Our team can help you eliminate hiring and training costs while still maintaining an internal accounting department. The best safety net you can provide yourself is a plan that is in place in the event that your key staff member must step away from their role. This can be achieved through one of H&M’s Staff Shadowing exercises. This involves our team coming in and documenting everything that your staff member does on a daily basis. From the smallest of tasks to the important passwords used to access information that is crucial to keeping your business running, we learn it all. Then if and when the time comes, we can step in so your operations aren’t interrupted. Contact us today and ask for more information on Staff Shadowing.
I have some accounting staff in place already, but I believe further help is needed. Can you work with my existing staff?
Yes! Some of our clients need us to handle all accounting needs; others want us to handle just certain elements. For example, you may have someone who handles your payroll, but help is needed with closing the books, collections and tax reporting. We can help with tasks that aren’t covered. Or, you may have current staff using QuickBooks or Peachtree, but you aren’t sure if they are using it efficiently or to its full potential. We can offer them software training so time is better spent. We can always work in tandem with current staff members, on-site or remotely.
Who can I expect to be reviewing my company’s financial information?
You will meet and get to know members of the Business Services and Solutions Team. They will quickly become trusted partners in your business operations and be readily available to you. You can expect qualified CPAs and accounting professionals to review your information in a confidential and professional manner. You will benefit from working with CPAs who are experts in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
I am concerned about sharing my company information. Is this concern warranted?
We understand the information about your business is important, sensitive and should be safeguarded at all times. Working with an independent third party is really to your advantage as we can always keep sensitive information confidential, while analyzing internal controls and bringing important issues to light.
Will the Business Services and Solutions Team perform my needed tasks in a timely manner?
You can count on it. You will never have to wonder if payroll will be done on time or if a tax deadline has been missed. You won’t have to deal with the frustration of not having your financials on time. We’ll take care of all of that, all while providing you with current financial reports so you will always know, in real time, where your business stands.
I’m not sure I can afford to partner with the Business Services and Solutions Team. Is it expensive?
We offer affordable rates for our services. Clients pay only for the expertise and accounting help that is needed, not for work they wish to continue to take care of on their own. All of our accounting and CPA for small business solutions can be customized and client budget is always taken into consideration. Keep in mind, we can provide a full accounting solution, or offer you a la carte-style service options.
Affordable is good, but will our partnership provide me with any cost savings?
That’s always our goal. The Business Services and Solutions Team works efficiently; so much so that we can often complete accounting tasks in a fraction of the time that it takes an in-house staff member. What may take them a full work week to complete, we can take care of in just a matter of hours. While you will be paying for our services, you won’t be paying the overhead of a salary/wages, vacation time and benefits. Cost savings for sure!
I need accounting help, but only during certain times of the year. Can you work with me on this?
Of course. The Business Services and Solutions Team can work with you on a seasonal basis. Also, we can adjust our presence as your business grows and changes. We’ll be there when you need us.
I am interested in starting a new business. I am not sure where to start. Can you be of help?
Absolutely. Holbrook & Manter has a long history of helping businesses get off the ground and then thrive. Click here to review our New Business Kit, and contact us today to schedule a time to talk about your possible new venture.
