Challenge: You Need to Manage Cash Shortfalls During Slow Seasons

CPA firms are easily one of the most well-known seasonal businesses. While February through May can stretch you to the limit, the summer months leave you wondering if you can manage cash flow for the remainder of the year.

  • How do you monitor your cash balances on a regular basis?
  • How do you meet payroll and other expenses during periods of slow demand?

Challenge: Improving Staff Productivity and Client Confidentiality

Since CPA firms basically sell the time and expertise of their professional staff, profitability is driven by the utilization rate of the staff’s time and the billing rate they realize for that time. Many firms are making investments in information technology, such as knowledge systems and mobile computing, to improve the productivity of their employees. Likewise, investments should be considered for technology initiatives to manage data, secure the IT environment, and manage IT risks and compliance.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • How often do you update your technology solutions?
  • How do you finance investments in practice management systems and technology upgrades?
  • How do you keep up with the latest software for tax returns?

How we can help you:

  • Lines of Credit to help you navigate ebbs and flows in your available cash while you work to improve efficiency and security.
  • Term Loans to give you the working capital you need to acquire software, hardware and practice management systems.

Tax preparation and planning is the bulk of a CPA firms’ business, representing upwards of 50% of revenue for most firms. Collecting on a high number of clients for these services can be problematic.

  • How many individual and small business tax returns do you typically prepare?
  • Do you accept credit cards for payments by clients?

How we can help you:

  • Merchant Services to allow you to accept debit and credit card payments from clients, reducing the processing times for payments and improving receivables.
