What is CAS?
Many business owners have discovered the advantages of outsourcing non-core functions, and accounting and payroll services are among the most cost-effective functions a small- or mid-size business can outsource. CAS from R&A fills the growing need for general ledger maintenance, accounts receivable and payable services, bank and credit card reconciliations, month- and year-end closes, and more.
- Supplemental Bookkeeping
Businesses may find themselves somewhere in between being overwhelmed with accounting tasks, yet not prepared to invest the resources, time, and training to hire an internal employee. Let our highly trained and experienced professionals take the reins of your accounting environment, including payroll processing, giving you the ability to focus on what matters most to your business.
- Outsourced Accounting
Outsourcing your accounting and/or payroll reporting can be beneficial by ensuring better management of office functions. For some businesses with an accounting employee, or even a small team, hiring an outside accountant to reconcile monthly and quarterly figures may provide you with the extra bit of assurance your business needs.
- Full-Service Advisory
Do you need help updating your accounting department processes and procedures? Is your organization going through a transition? When businesses expand, departments grow or contract, or there is an inter-departmental reorganization, you may find yourself needing outside resources to help you adjust. Our business consulting services can help you accomplish your goals with big picture strategy and thoughtful tactics.
- Some of the many services CAS can provide include:
- Sales tax setup, filing, and payment services
- Payroll setup, filing, and payment services
- Accounts payable (bill pay)
- Accounts receivable (customer invoicing, receivables and collections management)
- Assistance with internal financial statements
- Month, quarter, and annual closing
- Accounting system implementation
- Accounting procedure development and implementation
