Working on-site at a client’s business is common practice for a tax and business advisory professional, whether it is on an interim basis due to personnel change or to gain new financial representation without hiring a CFO. Many start-ups and established businesses find this to be a great staffing alternative. It allows them to save money by engaging us for only the services they need and only when they need them. Once the business achieves the growth that requires a full time CFO position to be established, we will develop a policies and procedures manual to document the positions in your accounting function and help recruit just the right person to fill it. We will also remain to train, educate, and orient the new employee to the accounting and bookkeeping function.
