“Having the Giersch Group on our team is like having a personal trainer. They help you surpass your personal best and take the risks needed to make it to the next level. With all we have invested in our business, we wouldn't have it any other way!”
--Pam Foti and Jenny Wagner, Vesta Senior Network
Accounting software setup & training
For convenience and efficiency, we urge all our clients to migrate to QuickBooks™ online or a similar cloud-based solution. The Giersch Group can facilitate this transfer and train the client in the viewing of reports from the online software. We'll help you understand how to use your financial statements to make decisions for the good of your business. QuickBooks™ setup can be done as a standalone service, or we can take over your bookkeeping entirely depending on the level of support you need.
New to online accounting software? We can help you choose the right version and teach you how to use it.
Not sure if you've been doing it right? We can clean up your books and review them periodically for accuracy.
It's YOUR money--you tell us how much help you need and we'll simplify your accounting procedures.
Bookkeeping reporting packages

The benefits of our unique approach to bookkeeping
Our approach to bookkeeping leverages the power of teamwork for your benefit.
Keeping financial records for a business is a complex process involving many steps. In larger companies, these steps are separated into different roles, and even at times different departments.
The benefit of the Giersch Group is that you get a team approach to your financial systems needs for a very reasonable price. We approach each client with the following team:
Controller: Every client is assigned a controller who acts as your own personal account manager. He or she will work with you to make sure your financials are done correctly and your monthly report focuses on the areas of greatest concern to you. It is the job of the controller to oversee the Giersch Group bookkeepers and consult with a Giersch Group CFO as needed to solve more complex, strategic issues.
Bookkeepers: We work with local universities to employ finance and accounting majors to take care of client data entry. Our interns are put through a rigorous application process including a test with questions from the Certified Professional Bookkeeper exam. Our bookkeepers work under the supervision of our controllers and CFOs.
CFO: Giersch Group CFOs have decades of experience in small business financial systems and reporting. They are able to step in as necessary to handle thorny withholding tax issues and complicated payroll and insurance questions, as well as to give strategic business advice as needed.
Additional services include:
- Financial modeling
- Audit Support
- Company Value Analysis
- Basic HR Management Services
- Creating or Refreshing Employee Handbook
- Creating Org Chart
- Writing Job Descriptions
- Professional Development Plans
- Employee Review Templates

Bookkeeping firm with flexible support services
If your money is important to you, then the bookkeeper should be one of the most important roles on your team. Too often the bookkeeping is another hat given to an already busy employee. Sometimes that person is the owner-operator who is trying to do it all themselves. A good bookkeeper who can present timely, accurate financial package every month, with helpful commentary and discussion is one of the indispensable pieces of building a great business that lasts.
The Giersch Group provides as much or as little bookkeeping support as you need for your small business or nonprofit organization. We also offer business management consulting, family business succession planning and professional fundraising services.
