Working with your CPA

EBCís bookkeeping services are not intended to replace the services of your Certified Public Accountant (CPA). In fact, many of our clients are referred to us by local CPA firms. Our services are designed to work in conjunction with your CPA, so that you have comprehensive financial management solutions for your small business.

By providing timely and accurate bookkeeping information to your CPA firm, you are able to receive more value for the money you spend for accounting services, guidance, and advice. At the same time, you will have a greater confidence that the advice and planning you are receiving from your CPA is based on reliable, up-to-date data.

When your information is reliable, your CPA firm is able to spend extra time formulating the more complex strategic analysis that it was hired forórather than spending valuable time verifying and correcting your general ledger.

What to Expect

If after reading the preceding pages you would like to obtain more information, the next step would be to schedule an initial consultation. This meeting is conducted free of charge and allows us to learn more about your business. The meeting usually consists of the following:

  1. A discussion about your business and the level of service that best fits your needs and budget.
  2. A look at your current bookkeeping system and software to assess its strengths and weaknesses.
  3. An analysis of your current trial balance and detailed general ledger, if available, to determine what types of transactions are currently being recorded and to provide a general assessment of the accuracy of those recorded transactions.
  4. A more detailed discussion of the services offered by EBC as they relate to your business.

We recommend that your CPA attend this initial meeting so that we can get feedback as to what information they would like to receive on a regular basis and what improvements in your bookkeeping system they would like to see take place. Following this initial consultation, we will present a detailed written recommendation, including an estimate of costs for our services.
