Possibly you are not sure if your cash controls are sufficient to prevent theft, or you’re not sure if you are properly collecting all of your revenue, or you’re just not getting the information you need from your financial statements. Maybe you need help evaluating a business acquisition or need a budget prepared. If so, I may be just the solution for you. My expertise includes;
