Our Part-Time CFO services are structured to your specific needs and circumstances in order to provide cost-effective solutions where and when they are needed most.

Beyond Bookkeeping

Well-organized financial records are an essential part of running any business. However, bookkeeping alone often lacks meaningful information and insight for making important business decisions. We get it. That is why we go beyond bookkeeping. We come alongside your business as strategic advisors with the depth of a full-service accounting department, CFO-level-insight, and tailored business reporting to help you focus on what counts.

Financial Statement Preparation

In today’s business environment, banks, regulatory agencies and other stakeholders often require financial statements to be compiled, reviewed or audited by a CPA.


This non-assurance service is frequently a cost-effective option in lieu of a financial statement audit or review. After gaining a general understanding of your business and bookkeeping, we will present your financial information in the accepted format of proper financial statements.


This service provides a base level of CPA assurance involving analytical procedures, inquiries and other procedures, and is useful to provide lenders and other outside parties with a level of comfort on the accuracy of your financial statements without the full time and effort of a financial statement audit.


This assurance service involves obtaining an understanding of your business’s internal controls, assessing fraud risk, and obtaining audit evidence through inquiry, observation, confirmations, analytical procedures and other steps in order to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.



Located in Santa Ana, California, our primary focus is in serving the entrepreneurial business community through our unique approach of management-focused accounting services and tax consulting designed to add value to any business.
