Here’s the problem…

You know that in order to have predictable profitability that allows you to grow and scale your business, you need to know your numbers…

However, there’s that nagging pull to do everything but your books consistently.  Because…

👉🏽 Bookkeeping is boring

👉🏽 You’re not a “numbers person”

👉🏽 You’re stuck/unsure if your “did it right”

👉🏽 It’s one more piece of tech/software to learn

Here’s what Megan had to say about working with us…

Megan (For Consulting)
Megan Everett - Project Manager

I trust Joyce M. Washington, CPA, of TheCommonCents.com, to have my back while I focus on growing my business and serving my clients. She tells me exactly how healthy my business is by looking at my numbers. She alerts me to small problems so they don’t become big ones. Joyce makes me laugh while telling it like it is. She helped me figure out how to make my small business a PROFITABLE one. Joyce is the third CPA I have worked with. The first two came highly recommended, and knew nothing about online businesses. I highly recommend Joyce as an experienced, professional, strategic partner who will look after the financial side of your business as fiercely as if it were her own.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between bookkeeping, accounting and a CFO service?
Bookkeeping is the transaction level of your money system. It is the foundational level of everything.

Accounting is actually in between bookkeeping and CFO services… it is the reporting level (and for most people, lumped into the bookkeeping level of money management).

CFO’s typically are the analysts of the bunch – looking for and spotting the trends, reviewing budgets versus actual figures… They are the money detectives that look for ways to optimize profits and cashflow.

I’m not using Xero. Do you use other accounting programs like QBO?

Nope.  So that we can optimize our workflows, we concentrate on learning and mastering one accounting software suite and how we can integrate it with other 3rd party tech that you need to run an online business.  We choose Xero Accounting as our base software.

I’m not using Xero (part 2). Will you migrate/setup my books for me?

YES. If you aren’t already using Xero, we will do a systems setup. Please note: migration/setup does NOT include retroactive (catchup) bookkeeping or cleanup.

What if my bookkeeping isn’t up to date? Can you help me?

No worries. We will discuss this during your Money Systems Assessment, including scheduling and estimate of additional fees for completion.

Do you file business/personal taxes?

No, but I do have quite a few accounting friends that do.  We’re happy to refer you to someone on our list of trusted advisors.

What is the investment for this service?
