Meeting with clients

'Ready-to-offer' client accounting and advisory services (CAAS):

  • Business Foundation Services—a one-time engagement designed around educating and training a new business owner on basic but important tax and accounting concepts as well as on the basic use of QuickBooks Online.
  • Business Management Services—a recurring engagement billed monthly, built around a pre-defined report that tracks vital information that a business owner should be paying attention to.
  • Business Tax Preparation with Bundles—walks you through bundling your services together to create a packaged offering for business tax clients that the firm may not be interested in providing, or able to provide, full outsourced accounting services to.
  • Cash Management Services—an ongoing service with reports delivered to the client on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis supported directly with weekly, biweekly or monthly client meetings for the firm to review how cash has recently been spent, but with a main focus on cash inflows and outflows in the short term.
  • Credit Card Rewards—a one-time engagement designed to help your clients get the most out of their business by maximizing credit card rewards on their everyday expenses.
  • Entity Type Analysis—a one-time engagement designed to help your clients understand the different business structures and help them select the entity type that is right for them; can be sold standalone or consider bundling it as part of the Business Foundation Services product.
  • Individual Tax Preparation with Bundles—take a traditionally annual client and turn them into a monthly/quarterly recurring revenue client, offering various levels of planning to ensure the best possible tax liability and get them involved with the firm more than once a year.
  • Outsourced Accounting (BOSS)—accounting services that are delivered by an accounting firm's accounting and tax team to their "ideal" clients in a recurring manner; ideally, these services are bundled and sold as products in a fixed-fee model to clients and are delivered in a way that is standardized and scalable.
  • Payroll – Live—a stand-alone service designed for firms that choose to process payroll completely in-house or for firms that employ a hybrid payroll solution.
