I am looking to purchase a business and then multiple businesses. I have all the basic numbers and have attempted my own spreadsheet to do some financial forcasting on how many businesses I can purchase over time. I am not an accountant and not great with numbers so would like someone to help me put together a basic spreadsheet to do some planning. Please see attached example (I have started the project myself but not very good at it and probably have numbers in all the wrong places) The attached spreadsheet is the basic format I am looking for. MUST SPEAK FLUENT ENGLISH: So we can discuss via skype messenger or phone call. Please see the basics of my plan below: I am starting my business with $500,000. $300,000 capital and $200,000 on finance (7 year loan at 12% pa). From day 1 the business will return $150,000 pa. I want to calculate loan repayments for the first 12 months and see how much money i have "in the bank" after 12 months. At the 12 month mark I will purchase business 2 (same price $500,000) same return pa ($150,000) I will use the funds from the business 1 ($150,000 minus loan 1 repayments) as the deposit for the next business. The second 12 months will return $150k from business 1 (minus loan repayments) and $150k from business 2 (minus loan repayments) leaving x for a deposit for business 3 at the 24 month mark. At the 24 month mark I will purchase business 3 (same price $500,000) same return pa ($150,000) I will use the funds from Business 1 ($150,000 minus loan 1 repayments) and business 2 ($150k minus loan 2 repayments) as the deposit towards business 4 The third 12 months will return $150k from business 1 (minus loan 1 repayments) plus $150k from business 2 (minus loan 2 repayments) plus $150k from business 3 (minus loan 3 repayments) leaving x for a deposit for business towards business 4 at the 36 month mark. Purchase business 4 (same details) and continue to year 7 Please clearly indicate in your proposal that you fully understand the task and are able to speak with me via phone or skype to discuss any details and can converse in FLUENT ENGLISH More work available in the future for the right person that can do the job quickly and easily PLEASE NOTE: the attached spreadsheet is just my own work that is not likely to be correct, I am simply providing it as an example of the style of layout I am looking for I would also like the starting amount ($300,000 capital and $200,000 deposit) to be positioned at the top so I can use this cell as "variable data" If I change these numbers the remaining spreadsheet should adjust accordingly.

Corneilius & Merril Corporation is currently looking for Quickbooks Online Bookeeper that is trustworthy, focused, well organized, and a good communicator. CMC uses Quickbooks Online for accounting. Experience with Quickbooks / Quickbooks Online and basic bookkeeping and data entry is a must. The admin’s primary responsibility will be to first data entry all of the previous bank statement data into Quickbooks. The resource needs to able to carefully audit certain accounts or invoices or bills to make sure that the bank balance and QB balance match and that no vendors are over charging. They need to also use QB to carefully make sure CMC is not under billing. They need to already understand how to receive and match payments, make invoices/quotes/bills and so forth in QB. On a weekly basis, they will process payroll through QB, check for electronic payroll tax submissions and so forth as well as those that have to be sent out manually via email or fax. They will also make sure that the government agencies have the payroll taxes and filings in a timely manner through QB or manually when QB does not offer electronic submittal. The primary responsibility will revolve around Quickbooks – but the resource must also be willing to address some standard administrative tasks as described below. The administrative assistant will use email, Basecamp, Microsoft Office, as well as other tools to keep projects organized and updated. They will communicate with business contacts, clients, and tenants. The admin will need to use email, basecamp, phone to engage contractors to review work status, get updates, communicate changes, and document discrepancies. They will also go from time to time to various government websites such as BBB, SBA, County Tax Accessors, IDES, and other office to transact business, get updated tax information for properties, or make sure CMC is in line with the government agencies’ reporting requirements. Most of tasks can be done online via computer and phone. Eventually, they may also review a property online via the mls, Zillow, or other online resources to make sure it meets the company’s portfolio requirements and lenders’ profile requirements. Some of those tasks can be delegated to real estate agents, but depending on the admin assistant’s skill and proficiency, this may be something they can do. The admin will also be responsible for establishing vendor relationships and building vendor databases for rehab contractors, plumbers, electricians, hvac supply providers, wholesale supply providers (instead of Home Depot and Menards), and so on. The majority of work will be administrative on the computer and phone: filing, scanning, researching, tenant follow-ups, organizing tasks and working on projects, creating power point documents and proposals, keeping track of rent payments, engaging lenders, attorneys, surveyors, title companies, appraisers, and so forth. The admin will have to be logged into the CMC provided softphone at all times during their shift and answer all business calls professionally. The admin will use CMC provided email and use basecamp.com extensively. Familiarity with basecamp is a must. The work can be performed offsite instead of at the office. The office location selection is one of the projects the admin will assist with. The hours are primarily first shift and some predefined weekend time. The weekend hours are optional and not necessarily required. The weekend time can be agreed upon and scheduled up front. The hours are primarily first shift for the weekdays. The admin must work closely with second shift counterparts and be expected to carefully document detailed handoff instructions, pick up where they leave off on some projects, as well as work on separate projects. The position is hourly exempt. The position is full time. Mileage and expenses are reimbursed, of course. Payroll is distributed via direct deposit. In the spirit of full disclosure: this position is not for the lazy person, the one that is trying to avoid work, get away with not working because no one is watching, the one that will half do work, not follow up on the email and respond in a timely fashion, not keep projects updated, and so forth. This is for the organized, meticulous, detailed, communicator that is comfortable with a mix of tasks and projects. Some are easy and boring like filing.. Some might be a learning experience such as making a proposal or an executive summary for a new property
