Technical Accounting Complexity at Startups

The impact of accounting pronouncements on a startup’s financial statements can be burdensome. Our on-demand technical accounting services provide the support needed to implement and report under GAAP. Common areas of accounting pronouncements implemented include:

  • Revenue recognition
  • Equity accounting – derivatives, stock based compensation
  • Lease accounting
  • International consolidation
  • Due diligence support
  • Accounting for digital currency

Investors and creditors want compliant financial reporting to understand the health of their portfolio companies. Being audit or exit-ready allows companies to rapidly react to M&A or other opportunities that arise.

Financial Modeling for the Future

For fast-moving start-ups, forecasting and planning for the future are crucial. Our team’s expertise provides you with clear insights into cash management, potential growth trajectories and fundraising requirements, helping you plan for funding events and scaling operations.

CFO Advisory

The financial landscape for startups can be complex and ever-evolving. Our CFO advisory services provide you with strategic insights and guidance, helping you make informed decisions that drive growth. Whether developing a financial model, cash flow projections or aligning efforts for a fundraising event, our experienced team members can step in to provide the advice and guidance needed.

Equity and Convertible Instruments Administration

Our team provides expert equity administration services, ensuring that compensation structures and investment vehicles are managed efficiently. In the modern business landscape, equity-based compensation has become a vital compensation element for attracting and retaining top-tier talent. We are versed with equity management platforms as well as the related support required for audit and legal diligence matters.

Risk Management & Liaison Services

In the area of crucial risk management oversight, we strive to safeguard your business against potential exposures by functioning as your liaison with regulatory and other third party entities. These outside entities could include governmental agencies, bankers, insurance brokers, auditors, board members, tax advisors, attorneys, or payroll agencies. Our engagement helps you to offload the time-consuming compliance, communications and coordination with these parties.
