We will be presenting on accounting services, QuickBooks, outsourced CFO services, and answer any questions you will have. Often times a business owner will think they need to have three separate accounting records: one for taxes, one for the bank, and one that is the actual. We can help navigate your accounting records so you only need one set of books. We will also talk about how an outsourced CFO can help your business grow and be more profitable.
