Services for Start-ups and Entrepreneurs

We’ve seen what happens when startups attempt their own accounting. In the beginning, these early-stage entrepreneurs bootstrap, stretch limited funds and cut costs where they can. But managing their own finances and accounting should not be among these cost-saving measures. In fact, doing so can have serious consequences and wind up costing far more than if this speciaized work was outsourced from the onset.

So, when should you hire an accountant? Maybe you raised an initial round of funding. Maybe your payroll and other expenses are growing, and getting harder to track. Maybe what you need isn’t a full-time CPA, but rather a CFO For Hire or other outsourced accounting services. Our small-business experts help you determine the type and scope of services you will need to support you through those crucial early stages. That way, you pay only for the accounting and transactional work your start-up needs. Some of our services for this business niche include:

Business Consulting
• Bookkeeping
• Human Resources Management
• Complex Accounting and Tax Matters
• Quickbooks Setup and Training

PKHB CPAs takes the time to understand what our clients need. With offices in Catskill, Hudson, Kingston, Saugerties, Valatie and Albany, NY, our accounting firm learns the nuances of your business, and then uses what we learn to craft a cost-effective accounting plan that frees you to grow your core business, build relationships and grow your brand.
