As a strategic advisor, we will serve as a primary resource for owners, management, and members of the finance team to provide big picture insight and assist with overall financial planning. This role extends beyond the transactional and reporting needs and addresses the interpretation of this activity and reports while providing recommendations for future success.
If you need a more accounting transactional approach, we can take responsibility for month end oversight and bank account management and reconciliations. On a monthly basis, we can provide monthly reports and financial statements with various data points and based on the reporting requested of management and owners/investors. These standard reports will be developed based on a discussion with you on what is most important to leadership as well as our recommendations given our experience working with similar organizations.
We can serve as an advisor as an organization evolves and seeks venture capital financing. We can assist management in developing key performance indicators (KPIs) to track and monitor to achieve desirable KPIs typically sought by venture financing firms.
We can also assist as it relates to its equity incentive plans. We have experience handling this with organizations via CAP table software that manages the different types of stock available, the timing of the distribution of the stock, and the resulting impact on the organization and its finances. When well organized, managed, and maintained, a CAP table can make the accounting for stock options simple and easy, and provide a clear picture of investors and holdings to ensure a smooth process for an annual audit and when preparing to raise capital.
