Client success stories

A Marin County building contractor had several projects going at once, but he had no idea whether any of them were profitable. Suzanne created departmental profit and loss statements showing the clients which projects were on track to make money and which were not. Using cost accounting, they could determine why there were losses.  Did he under bid? Or miss the mark on the price of materials? This approach works well for any business owner or professional who has a variety of products or services they want to track.

For an investor, Suzanne prepares a monthly P&L to track securities values. She updates the prices then prints a report showing last and current month. The report also provides a comparison of current month to the same month of the previous year. All of this is summarized on a balance sheet so they can see exactly which securities have increased or decreased in value from last year to this year and from last month to the current month.

If you want to bring bliss to your books, contact Suzanne.
