Accounting Consulting Services

Below are several ways we have helped businesses in the Bucks County, Montgomery County and surrounding areas:

1) Should I raise my prices?

A family business owner was overwhelmed with all the actions required to move the company forward.   Cash flow was tight and the owner was afraid of raising prices for fear of losing customers. CMF Accounting came in as a QuickBooks consultant to clean up the data and to review the increase in ingredient costs. When faced with the black and white of how costs went up and margins were being squeezed, the business owner reluctantly agreed to raise prices. The result – not one customer noticed or complained. Additional profit improved the cash flow for operations.

2) Why is my cash flow so bad?

A client was having difficulty finding time to send out invoices. Without billing on a consistent basis, there were major cash flow problems. Worked with the business owner to develop an accounting system and standardized forms to record information when work was completed. This enabled invoices to be sent out in a timely manner. Prompt invoicing plus a dunning policy, increased operating cash flow and decreased bad debt.

3) Which products or services made me the most money?

A family business had three distinct types of services. The owners frequently were overwhelmed with too many proposals to write. Using advanced QuickBooks features to determine which type of service was most profitable, they were able to prioritize their time and write the highest margin proposals first. Financial analysis provided focus, reduced overwhelm and stress and increased profit.
