Small Business Accounting & Bookkeeping Services
Small Business Accounting Services – CapActix
It is generally observed that in start-ups and small businesses where the whole business is run by the one-man army, Accounting & Bookkeeping is not given due importance. For small business owners accounting task is just like Broccoli. Even though you know the benefit of eating broccoli, you avoid eating it. Irrespective of the size of your business, maintaining proper accounts depicts you a correct and reliable picture of your business’s health, showing you in which area you are doing good and bad in a particular period. Although cumbersome, maintaining correct accounts can contribute in leading small businesses to medium and medium businesses to large.
Business owners with some interest and knowledge of bookkeeping, try to handle all accounting related tasks at their own such as maintaining proper accounting records, invoicing your clients, keeping an eye on cash flow, preparing taxes and paying it, preparing financial statements in adherence to accounting principles and standard accounting practices. This leaves them very little time to focus on other important business activities.
Our Accounting Services for Small Business helps startup and small business owners to save time and cost. Our personalized Accounting services for Small businesses range from bookkeeping services for small business, payroll services, management reporting, tax preparation, business analysis, account receivables & payable management, and virtual CFO services.
We do understand that it is not feasible for small businesses or start-ups to invest a lot of money in non-revenue generating activities such as accounting and compliances. Therefore, we follow the cost-value approach in small business accounting services which can be explained as follows;
