Drive Accounting Bookkeeping Services for Small Business

We are passionate accountants and bookkeepers who possess the experience and expertise to help your business succeed. Every relationship begins with an authentic discussion aimed at getting to know you and your business.

Some clients tell us “just make sure everything gets to my CPA at the end of the year”, while others want very detailed information about different areas of their business. It is vital we take the time to get to know you and your business so that we can set up a system that works specifically for you and your company.

As a professional services firm, our services are customized to suit your needs. We start by identifying what you want to accomplish, then set up plans to help you achieve your goals. We support you through the implementation and regular maintenance of your systems.
Drive Accounting offers a variety of accounting and bookkeeping services to help businesses with their accounting needs. Clients generally flow through three stages:

Set Up

Just as each business is different, the accounting steps needed for each business can vary as well, depending on the industry, size, and entity type, as well as the owners’ personalities and need for certain information.

At the beginning of each project, we map out the flow of money and design the accounting processes needed specifically for each company. These processes are then set up within QuickBooks so that our business owners can get the information that they need to effectively run their companies.

This is where the process breaks down for most bookkeepers. If you don’t understand accounting, QuickBooks, and business, the systems set up are rarely comprehensive or set up with tested best practices. Our accountants at Drive are experts in all three of these areas and it’s this insight and expertise that allows us to set up successful systems for our clients.

Clean Up

Running a small business is difficult and you’re often wearing many hats. What small business owner hasn’t felt like they are juggling too many things at once? Unless you run an accounting firm, you didn’t go into business to do bookkeeping all day. Because of this, owners often put off accounting tasks because they are busy running their business and retaining and attracting new clients.

Don’t feel you are in a unique situation. You are not alone. We’re here to help – and it’s been our main business focus since 2000.

It’s important to remember that good data leads to good decision making. Your bookkeeping will only be as good as the information you put into it. We understand that business owners can fall behind. It’s happened to us, and we very acutely understand the stress created and the pit in your stomach that you feel waiting for this to catch up with you. This is why we started Drive Accounting.

Regardless of what’s got you here or how far behind you are, a change needs to happen and there’s a clean-up that needs to be done. We’ve helped hundreds of clients with bookkeeping clean-up and set up processes to help keep them updated moving forward. Whether you’re behind 6 months or 6 years, we’ve done it.

Keep Up

Typically, bookkeeping falling behind is a symptom of a different issue that isn’t resolved just because the books are now clean. Now that your books are set up and up to date, it’s imperative that we put systems in place to keep from falling back into the same habits that got us here in the first place.

We leverage the system designed in our set up phase to determine who should do what, and when. We take the process map and we put names in each step so that everyone knows who is responsible for which area.

Sometimes our clients’ names are in most spots, and sometimes, Drive fills all the steps, but typically there’s a division of duties where our clients can leverage their existing staff for many day to day tasks, while leveraging Drive’s expertise for the higher end tasks and to provide checks and balances for our clients.

Drive Accounting provides the rhythm and helps ensure that your books are maintained properly and consistently so that you can get accurate and timely financials.

Drive Accounting is experienced at eradicating the problems and issues that are commonly and not-so-commonly associated with owning and running a business. We are the preferred company when it comes to timely delivery of excellent services to clients. Our top-notch services are relished by our customers of diverse backgrounds in various business fields.

Are you having issues with preparing your financial statements? Don’t have financial statements? You can count on our expertise and experience to get the job done!
