Outsourced Controller Services From Supporting Strategies
Helping You Make Informed Decisions
Strengthen and protect your business with controller services from Supporting Strategies. With financial analysis, management reporting, consistent bookkeeping practices and efficient systems and processes, you always have the information you need when you need it.
Stay one step ahead financially with forecasts of where your business will be tomorrow. Supporting Strategies delivers a standard monthly financial package that includes a balance sheet, income statement and statement of cash flows. At your request, we can also provide additional management reporting to meet the unique needs of your business.
As your controller, we’ll consult with you on your numbers and ongoing needs — from regular cash forecasting to reviewing and analyzing financial data. With this depth of data and analysis, you can apply for business loans with greater confidence, respond more quickly to opportunities and chart a course for your company’s future based on accurate, actionable intelligence.
Tax preparation doesn’t have to be a stressful process each year. At Supporting Strategies, our controller services include setting up systems and processes to capture the data that’s essential to your CPA. You can rely on us to deliver audit-ready financials in a timely manner, making it easier for your CPA to meet tax-related and other important deadlines. Plus, we can work directly with your CPA to fulfill requests that may previously have gone to you.
Do you have a business loan? Our team can work to understand loan reporting requirements and deliver data as needed. Or, are you applying for a business loan? We handle preparation of financials and projections for loan applications and government assistance programs.
For nonprofits and other organizations that have a board (or other governing body), we can work with the board to learn what specific information they’d like to see. Then, we can create efficient systems and processes to obtain the necessary data and prepare regular financial reports for their review. We can also discuss the financials directly with the board as needed and get the books in order prior to audits and donor reviews.
Focus on your business — not on your books. When you hire an in-house bookkeeper and controller, you may find yourself overseeing your their work and helping to develop bookkeeping processes. When you work with Supporting Strategies, you work with a bookkeeping and controller services partner. That means you benefit from built-in oversight, high-level expertise and proven processes.
At Supporting Strategies, our team members are all based in the United States and have an average of 10 years of industry experience. They typically have a bachelor’s degree in accounting or a related discipline, and many hold an advanced degree and/or CPA designation.
Plus, we assign each client a team of at least two bookkeeping and controller services professionals who get to know your business well. This arrangement allows for cross-training, coverage during vacations or illnesses, and load-balancing to handle fluctuating volumes of work. It also creates a segregation of duties, so checks and balances are always in place to guard against errors and fraud. And we follow proven processes to establish controls that support the integrity and accuracy of each client’s financial information.
As your business grows and evolves over the years, you can count on Supporting Strategies. Our team approach enables us to scale to meet your changing needs.
Supporting Strategies follows time-tested, efficient, standardized processes that we customize to fit your needs. We also collaborate with each client using highly secure, best-of-breed cloud accounting tools. WorkPlace™, our proprietary workflow management system, standardizes and automates our processes to maximize efficiency of service delivery.
We continuously vet and implement the latest third-party solutions for managing the general ledger, payables and receivables transaction processing, document management, financial analysis and more. All these systems are scalable, allowing us to easily meet your needs as you grow.
As a business leader, you have many functions to oversee. At Supporting Strategies, bookkeeping and controller services are our core competency — and we are experts in the field.
As controllers, we will work with your CPA to follow bookkeeping-related compliance regulations and generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In order to keep your company in compliance, we will work with your CPA to ensure you have the necessary procedures and policies in place and can field and coordinate filings with state and other government agencies.
When you work with Supporting Strategies, you work with a team of experts, a proven process and best-of-breed cloud accounting tools that fit the needs of your business today and tomorrow. And you have a bookkeeping and controller services partner with the knowledge and expertise to provide information that helps you lead your business.
The records my clients get from Supporting Strategies help their management teams understand KPIs and make decisions on company direction based on those KPIs. That’s very meaningful.
Our books were a mess. Karen got the chart of accounts right, along with all the other stuff that we aren’t experts in. We’re good at sales, engineering and design. Accounting and HR are hats I do not want to wear.
Now we can really see where we are financially and compare things year by year. I get a better picture, and the board gets a better picture.
