Who is a Good Fit to Work With CSI?

Jan 20, 2022 8:15:00 AM / by CSI Accounting Staff posted in small business taxes, small business payroll, small business bookkeeping, small business accounting, small business operations

While we’d love to work with everyone, we know that it’s not so simple.

If we onboarded every person who showed an interest in our services, we’d spend too much time trying to make them into the right fit, and we wouldn’t have enough time to provide quality service to the people we’re supposed to be here for. Plus, working with the wrong person isn’t beneficial to them either; signing a contract to pay for services that aren’t a good match for their business is no joke!

We acknowledge that our services are not the best solution for every business, much like how not every business is an ideal client for us. However, when working together is the right fit for both parties, we can come together to use monthly financial statements to monitor and grow your business, run your payroll efficiently while you maintain as much or as little control as you like, or both! Continue reading to learn about the technical components, values, and beliefs that it takes for us to be a good match.
