How we work
Our services are provided virtually, from our office in Ojai, California.
As much as we would like it to be, accounting is not entirely a “done for you” service. Information and feedback are important components that affect the quality of the work that we do.
Most communications are through email, however there is nothing like the efficiency of a phone call to clarify, catch up, review and discuss what’s needed. In person meetings are also available for clients within our geographical location. When engaged, we will determine and agree about the best way to receive your feedback so that you will benefit from our best work.
We work in a computerized environment, have implemented an internal paperless workflow and specialize in using software tools and applications to perform and deliver accounting services, communicate with clients and share information. When you engage us, we will determine the information we need and how it will be obtained.
We have expertise with several tools and services that helps us share information. The services we will recommend and use will depend on what we need to know and what we’re tasked to do for your business.
