    Does your current accounting team protect your finances like a team of Secret Service Agents? Do you want your books to be so secure that they’re practically bulletproof? Great! To uplevel your company's financial strategy, every dollar must be accounted for, each expense must be scrutinized, and all costs should be minimized in order to leverage your cash flow and keep your bank balances safe from bottom line bandits. My services will banish any previous bad bookkeeping tactics and provide you with airtight security which prevents: Penalties & fees IRS audits Inaccuracies due to outdated software Costly tax accountant cleanups Disorganized account payables Uncollectible accounts receivables Cash flow shortages All of the previously mentioned bookkeeping blunders can rob you blind. I’ve helped many companies recover from disastrous financial mistakes caused by inadequate financial management. ================== Client Success Stories ================== ⭐ Helped a start-up company rescue a $100K account receivable that was held hostage by a third-party merchant provider for over 30 days. (I’ll make sure your payments are sent securely and accurately, and that your revenue is received in a timely manner!) ⭐Identified excessive fees on a client’s bank account and negotiated with the financial institution to have them waived, resulting in significant yearly savings. (I’ll examine every company expense and ensure that there aren't any dollars being wasted in your business!) ⭐Completed several companies’ applications for PPP loans and procured over $100k which prevented potential bankruptcies. (I’ll review your situation and help you determine if you qualify for available resources.) To guard the gold in your business, you need a professional accounting and finance expert who is armed with the right tools, such as the most updated cloud-based accounting programs, modernized processes, and has the experience and track record to defend your finances like an armored truck. Every business expense should provide a justifiable return on your investment, and that includes your accounting team. Hiring the wrong team can cost you much more than their hourly fees. Slow and inefficient systems can double their invoice and your risk of being audited, a little more pain here, which makes your bargain bookkeeper an expensive liability that you end up paying for later. Imagine the peace of mind that having accurate financial records will provide you, like having a high-level security system that prevents IRS agents from breaking down your front door. My goal is to help you take control of your finances and teach you how to read your Profit & Loss statements and evaluate KPIs so you have a clear understanding of your business. If you’ve ever watched Shark Tank, you’ve seen the sharks grill each business owner on their numbers, and shame them if they don’t know them inside out, because having a firm grasp on your financials is key to growing a company. When you work with me, you’ll be tank ready at a moment’s notice because you’ll know your numbers backwards and forwards. When you look at the 5-star feedback I've received from all my clients and the returns on investment my experience and expertise provide, you'll see that it's worth reaching out to schedule a brief call. If you’re ready to take control of your business finances and want someone who will guard your company assets like Fort Knox, send me a message and let’s get started! To your financial success! Erin

How to hire an accountant

It would be easy to assume that businesses hire an accountant for their expertise in tax codes and number crunching.

There are also human factors to consider such as honesty, communication and work ethics. So how do you find the right accountant to empower your business? Here’s an overview of what you can do to find, engage, and work with a great accountant.

How to shortlist accountant professionals

As proposals are submitted, you’ll need to vet the most promising accountants to create a shortlist of people you want to interview. Here are some points to look for:

  • Professionalism. Which candidates tailored their submission to your specific project requirements? Do they seem to genuinely care about your needs? How is each candidate’s communication skills?
  • Talent. Does each candidate’s Upwork Profile show a strong history of success? Do they have experience within your industry? Who is proficient with your current accounting software?
  • Feedback. How have other clients described their relationship with each freelance accountant? Are there any that stand out?

How to write an effective job post for an accountant

The most important factor in you finding the perfect accountant is to create a detailed job post about your expectations. It should include general information about your business and your everyday needs, in addition to the exact accounting services that you require help with. The more information you provide, the smoother the process will go.

A few of the more important criteria to include in your job post are:

  • Workflow: What task(s) will you need completed? Are they recurring?
  • Communication: How will the accountant communicate with you?
  • Technical: What’s your current process for bookkeeping? What software do you use?
  • Background: Are there any additional industry requirements or unique challenges?
  • Preference: What are some character traits or work backgrounds you’d like to see?
  • Project Length: How long do you anticipate needing an accountant?
  • Deadlines: Are there any impending timelines? When do will you start needing help?

Interview questions to ask an accountant

The interview process is a great opportunity to learn about each accountant’s personal and professional skills. It is generally recommended to schedule an interview with at least three candidates in total, and preferably with one that is towards the higher end of the spectrum in terms of experience and billable rates. This gives you a baseline to judge the others by.

  • Talk About Relevant Experience: Ask each accountant how much knowledge they have about your industry and softwares you use. If you have unique challenges that need attention, be sure to discuss them early in the interview as well.
  • Ask about Actual Processes: Learning how the accountant processes paperwork, prepares taxes and balances books will give you a lot of insight into their ability to handle your accounts.
  • Present a Real-World Scenario: Ask specific questions about your business that require a solution. By putting each contractor on the spot, you’ll have a better idea of how they respond to pressure.
  • Measure your Comfort Levels: While each contractor’s skill levels are important, you ultimately want someone to build a professional relationship with. So don’t be afraid to get to know them a little bit.

Hopefully, after the first round of interviews are completed, you’ll have a good idea of which accountant makes the most sense for your business. If you’re still not sure though, feel free to conduct a second round of interviews to ask follow-up questions or to explore a relationship with other accountants.
