Here you are – you need an accountant for your startup. After all, accounting helps you make the daily business decisions required to make your business financially function and grow. Welcome to startup accounting 101 – accounting tips for startups that will help you choose among the best accounting firms for your startup business.

Accounting gives you the heads up on revenue timing, cash flow planning, and a snapshot of the business’ overall performance. An accountant manages and oversees your finances, tax preparations, recordkeeping, and can pinpoint inconsistencies and problem areas in your money management practices that can set your small business on a trajectory to success. Accounting can help you figure out how to make your business more successful and save you time so you can focus on running the business.

You may narrow down your options by how the accountant would like to be paid (flat fee, percentage, by the hour), and if that’s something that is doable at the current stage of your business.
