Nonprofit Accounting and Advisory Services

We have developed a number of important new accounting services to meet the needs of nonprofits in today’s environment of increased accountability and governance. Our accounting services include:

Audit Prep – provides an extra hand with year-end reconciliations, adjustments and audit schedules while you continue to control ongoing operations. Audit prep helps you reduce delays in completing your audit, avoid crisis conditions, and improve audit results. You get the additional professional expertise you need only when you need it.

Monthly or Quarterly Accounting – allows you to use in-house accounting staff for daily transactions and bring in the additional professional expertise on an as-needed basis. Monthly or Quarterly Accounting allows you to present reconciled financial statements to your Board throughout the year and adds expertise to your presentations to your Board or Finance Committee.

Nonprofit Controller for Hire – provides experienced accounting personnel to fill short-term needs as interim controller or CFO.

Weekly Accounting – staffs your entire accounting function processing transactions, reconciling accounts and preparing monthly compiled financial statements.  Weekly Accounting saves you time on hiring, training and supervision of in-house accounting personnel.  Weekly Accounting is a great resource for a new organization during start-up or an organization making the transition to independent operations.

Compilation and Review of Financial Statements – provides complete financial statements compiled or reviewed under AICPA standards to meet your financial reporting needs as required by your bank or Board.  Compiled statements may also be prepared in a short form as needed as part of monthly or quarterly accounting.

Accounting System Design – provides help in designing an accounting system that produces the reports you need for management and reporting.

Advisory Services – provide professional assistance in addressing specific nonprofit issues such as assistance with the:

  • application of new accounting principles,
  • development of Board governance policies and procedures,
  • development of accounting manuals,
  • establishment of procedures for internal control,
  • financial training of Board members, and
  • establishment of audit and finance committee functions.
