Do you compete with my existing CPA or tax preparer?
Although our consultants are highly experienced tax preparers and are familiar with the services CPA firms provide, our company does not compete with your CPA and/or tax preparer for the services they typically provide to you. Brilliant Solutions Group would work closely with your CPA, at your request, to ensure your QuickBooks financial statements and reports provide the information your CPA requires; and to ensure your QuickBooks data provides your tax preparer with all of the financial information necessary to prepare your tax return.
How much do you charge?
Our professional service fees for initial software implementations vary depending on the amount of information you want to track in your accounting system, how many people will use the software, the accuracy of your existing reports, and many other variables. Given the number variables, we interview each prospective client before beginning work to evaluate their specific requirements and determine our best faith estimate of what the cost of the services will be. In our experience, our billings are very close to the amounts that we originally estimate. For smaller companies that require large implementations, we can perform the implementation in stages, at your request. A multi-stage implementation helps to smooth the upfront costs and assists you with managing the learning curve. Contact us for an evaluation and estimate today!
Do you provide bookkeeping services?
Yes, we do provide bookkeeping services for many of our clients. However, we do not compete with your accounting firm in this area. The bookkeeping services we provide involve us entering transactions into your cloud accounting system or by remote access to your computer system. Alternatively, the accounting system can securely be installed at a third party hosting service location. Either way, the information is accessible to you and our bookkeepers at any time from a web-enabled computer.
Our bookkeeping services are offered at a flat monthly fee, which is determined by the amount of transactions to be entered and the reporting needs. You can choose to outsource all of your bookkeeping tasks or you can choose to have us complete only certain bookkeeping tasks. Some of our bookkeeping clients prefer to enter all of the daily transactions and then ask that we perform the banking reconciliations, processing of payroll, processing payroll forms, paying payroll liabilities, etc. Contact us for a solution tailored to your needs.
