Bookkeeping Services for Insurance Agencies & Agents
The Giersch Group serves insurance agents all over the nation from our our locations in Madison, Milwaukee & Brookfield, WI.
Affordable, professional bookkeeping for captive and independent insurance agents
Our bookkeeping services for the insurance industry provide CPA-ready books, regular financial reporting & online accounting support at affordable rates.
As an agent, you know how important it is to keep your finances organized. Failing to keep track of and document expenses and revenue not only leaves you clueless as to how your business is doing, but it also makes tax time a mad scramble to locate the paperwork you need. That’s where The Giersch Group can help.
We specialize in bookkeeping and accounting services for all types of small and mid-size businesses, including insurance agencies and insurance brokers. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, and as small business owners ourselves, we understand the hardships small businesses face. Our experienced bookkeepers not only take the burden of dealing with the numbers off your plate, but also help you make better business decisions.
We offer free, no-obligation consultations online, or at our offices in Milwaukee, Brookfield or Madison. While we draw many of our clients from southeast Wisconsin, our 100% virtual services are available nationwide.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Yes. Unlike traditional businesses, an insurance company's annual statement indicated its value as if it were in liquidation rather than continuing in business. Giersch Group's full accrual reports are more than numbers and offer suggestions on how to use the data towards higher profitability.
If the insurance company is a stock corporation, like most, accountants file both. Investors can get an accurate estimate of outstanding claims versus revenues. Giersch Group advisors have the expertise to walk you through this process.
