    I'm an engineer who's been working with spreadsheets for over 40 years, creating a wide variety of Excel files, both for engineering work, and also for other projects (such as tax records, business data processing, payroll records, quotations / estimates, stock analysis, church recordkeeping, etc.). I've completed over 1000 different Excel projects for over 300 different clients, in the USA and around the world. My strengths are spreadsheet structure, complex formulas, and VBA macros. Whether you need a complex macro-enabled spreadsheet to automate data processing, or a simple one, I can deliver. NOTE that I work in Excel (for Windows). I do NOT work with Google Sheets or Excel for Mac, since I have found both of those platforms to have some significant incompatibilities with Excel for Windows. Also NOTE that my high number of open contracts is due to many of my clients leaving our Upwork contract open perpetually, so they can come back to me for additional projects. Also note that I have recently closed a number of these long-term (2+ years) open contracts, resulting in a number of "No feedback given" entries in my Job History. These were all satisfied, long-term clients (whom I am now working for directly); there is no feedback because the contracts were closed by me, rather than by the client.

    I am an experienced U.S. degreed accounting professional and CPA candidate. Reducing income tax starts with accurate financial statements prepared with current tax laws in mind. Unreconciled business bank and credit card accounts can leave out income and expense transactions leading to an over or under statement of busness net income. Financial decisions can be made successfully by determining after tax profitability. In 2024, all for-profit entites that are formed and registered in the United States (U.S.) are required to file a Beneficial Owner Informaton (BOI) Report to the U.S. Treasury. Newly formed businesses in 2024 must file the BOI Report within thrity (30) days. Existing small businesses will need to file the BOI Report by December 31, 2024. The Work Opportunity Credit and Empowerment Zone Credit are available for 2023 and 2024 tax filings. Section 179 allows 100% depreciation for business equipment in 2024. Bonus Depreciation for Federal income taxes is 80% in 2023. The Inflation Reduction Act enacted for 2022 increases the tax credit for solar installions included are tax credits for installations of engery efficient windows, doors, water heaters, furances, air-conditioners, and an electric vehicle tax credit increase of $7,500 to $4,000 for purchases of particular models in 2023. Buyers of clean engery vehicles will receive a Time of Sale Report from the dealership to file with their tax returns starting in 2023. Quarterly United States (U.S.) estimated Federal income tax deposits are due by the 15th of the following month. The American Rescure Plan Act of 2021 changed the filing requirement for Forms 1099-K for payment card and third-party network transactions (TPSOs). There is a requirement for Credit Card Payment Facilators to send Form 1099-K to payees who have payment card transactions of $600 or more in 2023. The mileage rate for vehicle business use has been increased to 67 cents per mile for 2024. The Qualified Business Deduction (QBI) is a twenty percent (20%) deduction for qualified taxable income less any net capital gain for the tax year. The QBI 20% deduction is available through 2025. The (I.R.S.) requires Schedules K2 and K3 reporting beginning in tax year 2021 for U.S. partnerships, foreign individuals, and S-Corporations with items of international tax relevance. Some state sales tax laws requires Online providers to collect and remit state sales tax if remote sales in the state are $100,000 or more. Most other states have similar laws for remote sellers and marketplace facilitators. International tax payers may have Tax Treaties with the U.S.. I have over ten (10) years of experience in bookkeeping, GAAP accounting, Federal and state tax filings, and business support. I have real estate, renewable energy, e-commerce, service, medical, and tech industry experience. I offer intelligent business support, excellent problem solving, and leadership skills. I have successful Upwork virtual work experience. I have QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Online conversion, and clean-up experience. I use Excel reporting and analysis. Best results are obtained by applying best practices, current Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and U.S. tax law. Converting your business accounting to a cloud based accounting software, like QuickBooks Online is a smart decision because of the quick access to financial data worldwide, robust reporting, and easy account maintenance. Technological advances have eliminated the importance of location making virtual business partnerships efficient and effective. Net present value, ROI, capital budgeting, and other capital investing models and analysis support executive decision making. A periodic examination of financial ratios for business such as Asset Turnover, Return on Assets, and Return on Equity can show relative success, cost savings, and a company's operating effectiveness. The goal is a larger return on equity for sustainability.

    I am a former Finance Manager (14 Years) who has created P&L Models for Fortune 500 and start-up companies, forecasted sales for GSK Consumer more accurately than the Walmart dedicated sales team, and analyzed cost variances on over $300M in annual purchases. I've created forecast models for one of the world's largest nonprofits to help make informed decisions. I am also an Excel Macro Guru (VBA & TypeScript) (20+ years). I love data analysis I have a passion for making things "just work" whether it is beautiful executive dashboards or automating time-consuming/error-prone processes. - A business and finance manager/analyst that can program - hard to find someone who does both sides exceptionally. I build Executive Dashboards so CEOs can quickly understand and can automate the entire data stream. - Expert in automating QuickBooks output to Excel Pivot Tables and Dashboards - Dashboards, Scorecards, and Executive Summaries - Automation: Using VBA macros, Power Query, Pivot Tables, and advanced lookups/formulas - Simplifying Advanced calculations and Pivot Tables. - Nielsen reporting and analysis (GPG/OTC/Consumer Healthcare/Seafood/Meat/Snacks & More) - Financial Reporting/analysis. - Processing, manipulating, and analyzing large sets of data. - Breaking/Removing passwords on sheets - Any password, Any version of Excel. - Formatting: Making things look good while guiding the user to the important data points. - Optimizing files for size and speed - Taking files from 5 Minutes to under 1 second calc time. - Using the simplest solution possible - make it faster, easier to understand, and easier to modify if needed. - Almost anything else: If you can dream it, I can do it. Recently quoted in Forbes Magazine in an article on Akkio’s Conversational AI. Excel Certifications (LinkedIn) · Cert Prep: Excel Microsoft Office Expert (77-728) · Cert Prep: Excel Microsoft Office Specialist (77-727) · Master Excel · Excel Power Query Get Transform · Excel: Advanced Formulas and Functions · Excel: Advanced Formatting Techniques · Excel: Managing and Analyzing Data · Excel: Pivot Tables in Depth · Creating Interactive Dashboards in Excel · Excel Business Intelligence: Power Query · Excel Business Intelligence: Data Modeling 101 · Excel Business Intelligence: Power Pivot and DAX Past projects include: Automation: I have programmed Access and Excel applications and automated many processes: - Pulling Nielsen NITRO data through Excel can take a long time; open files, refresh data, save, close, repeat. I wrote a VBA macro for running entire directories - push 1 button, and you can literally walk away - dozens (or even hundreds) of reports update to the latest data with no intervention. - I wrote a UPC utility in VBA for adding/stripping UPC digits that is in use over a decade later at a $37B drug company - One morning, I was given the task of comparing 12 sets of sheets from 2 separate sources, the person who used to do it took 3 days spot-checking the files, by hand. Before lunch, I had written, tested, and debugged VBA code that compares any 2 Excel sheets and had compared every single cell, on all 12 sets, for any differences - color-coded by how large the variance. Models/Analysis: I have created dozens of financial models in Excel, examples include: - The full P&L forecasting model that has been used by Star-Kist since 2008 ($900M+ in sales) - 152 Sheets, 3.7M formulas, Calculates in 15 seconds - Building from bottom-up and allocating OH costs down to the SKU and Channel for every P&L line item. - Fish cost forecasting model that takes projected fish costs and forecasts amortization down to finished goods SKU level by month. - Build/Burn analysis model that takes all products shipped vs Nielsen and retailer POS to project inventory movement by customer. - Weekly retail (POS) consumption application and analytical tools that consolidated Nielsen Data, Walmart (when Walmart was not reporting into Nielsen) Club, C-Store, Dollar store, etc, and gave a 98%+ complete view of all consumption. Formatting Charts and Data: I have created scorecards and dashboards that not only look nice but convey important information in the most understandable way. For example, New Item Scorecards that are color-coordinated with the products - Blue Themed for Wild Planet Tuna, Green/Black themed for Wild Selections Tuna, so users can quickly find the correct report in a stack of dozens of reports and each chart in the report is displayed in the best format for that data. Optimizing: I also optimize Excel files for speed and size and have taken files in the 5MB range and reduced to 0.5MB range with no loss of data or functionality, and have optimized files that take over 5 minutes to calculate and reduced that to under 1 second with no loss of data or functionality. I use proprietary software to test calculation speeds (formulas and VBA) to make sure your workbooks run as fast as possible.

    Is your business ready for a CFO? While all businesses can benefit from expert financial guidance, it really depends on your goals. Do you have a vision for the future of your business? Do you know what steps you need to take to realize this vision? If your business is growing (or struggling), you need a proactive approach to financial management. This is where professional financial advice becomes crucial. As an experienced CFO I can help your business: -Develop a solid accounting infrastructure with strong internal controls and segregation of duties for accurate and reliable financial reporting. -Manage and improve cash flows so that the business has enough cash available at the right time to take advantage of any attractive opportunities. Cash is the lifeblood of any business. You can easily go broke while making a profit if your business lacks proper cash management. -Implement and oversee company budgets with an emphasis on reducing cost and plugging any money leaks. -Prepare and analyze financial statements in real time to support strategic decision making. -Establish key performance indicators. -Financial forecasting for growth and business development. -Measure financial results and course correct accordingly. -Provide CEO coaching and financial education for confident decision making. You likely already have an accountant or bookkeeper to compile and reconcile your books and a CPA to prepare and file tax returns. Keep in mind that a CFO is different. An experienced CFO is an expert in financial management. I don't replace your accounting and tax team. The cost of hiring a full-time CFO can range from $120k to over $250+ per year (not including bonuses, benefits, and employer taxes). Most small to medium sizes businesses are not at a stage where they need to hire a fulltime CFO. Hiring a CFO on a consulting basis can give you the experience you need at a fraction of the costs. I’m a CFO/CPA with 15+ years of financial management and accounting experience. I have a diverse background and have supported businesses of all sizes in a wide array of industries. I provide financial, operational, and analytical support to small and medium size businesses and nonprofit organizations. Main industries I serve are: Construction, SaaS, IT, Cybersecurity, Nonprofit, Professional Services, and others. Contact me for a free consultation.
