What Makes CSI Different?

Mar 3, 2021 11:43:30 AM / by CSI Accounting Staff posted in small business taxes, small business payroll, small business bookkeeping, small business accounting, small business operations

Any reasonable small business owner would ask themselves, "What makes CSI Accounting & Payroll so special? What do they do that my current bookkeeper and annual tax accountant don't? What about my payroll provider?"

You're here for a reason, and that reason is because all professional services are not made equal. You may have a need that is not being met with your current services. Let's see if we can be a good match for each other!

Expert Advice

Complimentary Business and Financial Advice

CSI Accounting & Payroll uses our accounting clients' monthly statements to offer complimentary financial advice. While we also offer business advice to payroll-only clients, it's much more helpful to have monthly accounting statements to monitor your big moves. There are many benefits to bundling our services - because your success is our success!

Free Resources for Small Businesses

Another benefit that CSI offers is free resources to help small businesses. On our website, we have several pages that are intended to provide viewers with valuable content.

Check out the rest of our blog posts, our templates and guides, and our FAQs.


Bookkeeping: the Bare Minimum

Everybody knows that businesses are required to keep detailed financial records, so many businesses opt for basic bookkeeping. Did you know that there's another option? At CSI, we're proud of our work to provide small business owners with monthly accounting.

What's the difference between bookkeeping and monthly accounting?

To put it in simple terms, bookkeeping is the process of data entry for mandatory records, whereas monthly accounting provides monthly financial statements.

Monthly statements help you understand how your business is performing in real time. These also help build a solid foundation for evaluating your business' health and guiding business decisions. Don't make blind decisions leading up to tax season each year!

Don't forget tax season!

Not to mention, your tax season will go off without a hitch if you're up-to-date with your accounting. Instead of an annual tax accountant performing 12 months of work all at once (for both businesses and individuals), your information is ready to go with CSI. We only serve the needs of small business owners, and we include tax preparation and filing to knock it out of the park!

Meeting with your annual accountant once a year just doesn't cut it; we are proactive with our clients and have periodic mandatory meetings to make sure both parties are on the same page. Our plan? We want our clients knowing what their taxes will look like many months ahead of time.

Experience: Unique Situations and Industries

An experienced accounting service will have a background of working with (and being able to offer professional advice on) profitability, operating budgets, mergers, acquisitions, and more. Not to mention, they should be extremely familiar with your industry outside of those topics. CSI offers accounting services that are tailored to over 20 different industries!
