Support to Start-Ups

So you’ve decided to become an entrepreneur!  But you’re not sure where to begin getting everything set up.  You desire to start with a solid foundation, but have lots of unanswered questions: 
 

  • What registrations are required (IRS, SOS, other)?

  • What type of business should it be (sole proprietorship, corporation, LLC, etc.)?

  • Should it operate on a CASH basis or be ACCRUAL based?

  • What should my account structure look like?

  • What accounting software options are available?

  • What is a chart of accounts and what does one look like?

  • Should I pay for accounting services or can I handle it myself?

For Medium to Large Companies & Municipalities.

Internal Assessments

 

Whether you are a municipality, a non-profit entity, or a for profit company, an occasional audit of your processes and internal controls is a must for maintaining a healthy organization.  A periodic internal assessment is just as important as having your personal "Healthy You" annual physical exam.  And like the physical, many of us know we need it, but for various reason don't do it.  

 

Your organization has existed for years.  You assume that processes have sufficient internal controls.  But do they?  Your focus in on the technical aspects, the processes may have been healthy when the entity was established.  But there has been employee turnover, the entity has grown significantly and the processes may be suffering unrecognized deficiencies.  

We perform both Functional and Accounting assessments.  QPAS will:

  • Develop a concise picture of existing processes

  • Evaluate the health of your internal controls

  • Make recommendations for process changes

  • Lead the implementation of changes

  • Document processes in a procedures/policy manual

Contract Audits

Do you secure services from contractors/consultants?  Consider performing an audit of the contractor/consultant invoices

  • Are your contractors billing you at the contracted rate?  

  • Are all the charges legitimate for the agreed upon work scope?   

Facilitation

 

Need someone who knows how to keep a conversation focused and on task?  That can keep the conversation moving forward toward the ultimate goal?

Strategic Planning

 

Every organization needs a business Plan/Strategic Plan.  A vision without a plan is at risk. 

QPAS will facilitate discussions and bring clarity to document your:

  • Mission statement

  • Vision for performing that mission

  • The organization's log and short term goals

Root Cause Analysis

Does your organization have situations that are a hindrance to it's growth?

  • When undesirable situations exist, the immediate response is generally directed at the visible problem.  

  • In most instances, reality goes much deeper and can only be uncovered through a progressive drill down of all the issues than will ultimately lead to the ROOT CAUSE. 

 

It is only when you understand the root cause that effective corrective actions can be implemented.
