How does startup bookkeeping work?

Startups need funding. Professional bookkeeping tracks all of your startup expenses, like hiring employees and renting office space, to start your business on the right foot. 

Giersch Group provides tailored bookkeeping services for startups. Our process has three steps: 

  1. Data Entry: A bookkeeper enters your financial data into our accounting software and digitally records all transactions. 
  2. Analysis: A controller reviews the data for accuracy and identifies all potential issues. 
  3. Financial Reporting: The CFO examines your financial statements to gain insights into profitability, liquidity and overall financial health to chart your strategic course forward. 

We help startups establish a solid foundation and provide financial visibility to help them make data-driven decisions. 

Reporting Packages

We provide complete and accurate monthly financial records. The reports we create help you understand your expenditures, profitability and cash flow. With real-time financial insights, you can make informed choices to drive growth. Use your financial history to open a line of credit, file taxes and more.

We don’t just send you reports - we teach you how to interpret the data within them to make smarter decisions.

Giersh Group understands the challenges startups face. We aim to support entrepreneurs by equipping them with bookkeeping best practices and the financial acumen to build lasting success. Let us help you overcome hurdles and accomplish your vision.
