“You say it’s affordable—can you be more specific?”
Our goal is to keep food cart accounting services within $150 to $180 per month. If we run into issues that take more than 3-5 hours per month, we’ll let you know immediately.
Payroll services are based on a flat fee of $29 per pay period plus $1.25 for direct deposit checks. Quarterly payroll reports or running W-2s are additional. Some services—like reviewing your records, or custom reporting—are simply priced by the task.
“What information would you need from me?”
We need your daily sales activity and deposit records. If you pay your own bills we would need a list of checks, and automatic or cash payments you have made to vendors.
If we take care of bill payment for you, your invoices would be mailed to our office for payment. Once your bank statements become available, they can be emailed, snail mailed (sent through the post office) or faxed to us to be reconciled.
“How do I get my information to you?”
Our long-range goal is to make pickups in person on a weekly or biweekly basis. For now, we rely on email or the US Postal service for receiving your paperwork. Payroll hours can be delivered by email or text message.
“How is my information protected?”
Accounting and payroll work is performed in an office environment. We take great care to ensure your documents are handled securely and responsibly. Client information is secured in a locked room after hours, and our QuickBooks data is backed up daily to an external server.
“Can I use your services on a trial basis?”
Typically we’ll know from our preliminary conversations whether we are ready to do business together or not, so generally there’s no need for a “trial.”
However, if you feel the working relationship is not what you expected, or if we feel that it’s not a good fit, we can give each other 30 days notice and go our separate ways with no hard feelings.
Our Accounting Agreement is as much a commitment to work together as it is an agreement about how we work together. If you have reservations, we’ll start slowly and modify services to meet your immediate needs first.
