1. Guide you through the start up process and assist in getting your  accounting system set up correctly.

2. Train your bookkeeper  or other assistant in the proper accounting procedures for your particular  business.

3. Work with your bookkeeper on a monthly basis to ensure that  transactions are recorded correctly and records are kept up to date. (The  virtual controller Is also available to assist the bookkeeper if problems should  arise.)

4. Offer guidance in the budget planning process and provide  guidance on budget-to-actual analysis.

5. Discuss project or department  profitability on a monthly or quarterly basis.

6. Prepare fixed asset  depreciation schedules on all equipment and keep the list current with new  purchases.

7. Teleconferences scheduled monthly or quarterly with management  to discuss results of operation as well as other business decision making issues  as necessary.

8. Provide tax planning strategies to business owners.

9.  Individual & Business Income tax preparation.

10. Documentation of  Policies & Procedures.
