Bookkeeping, Payroll & Business Services


Beyond Traditional Accounting Services

When clients think about their accounting firm, they think about business and individual tax return preparation, financial statements, and tax planning. Windes also offers additional accounting services such as bookkeeping and payroll services.  Our Client Accounting Services group is staffed with skilled professionals that provide these additional business accounting services to many clients in the Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Orange County areas.  Remote services are also available to clients nationally and internationally.

Who benefits from outsourced accounting services?

Small to medium-size businesses, nonprofit organizations, start-ups, sole proprietorships, and financially successful individuals facing a common challenge will benefit. The challenge is:

How to handle a multitude of bookkeeping, payroll, and business management issues with limited human capital and monetary resources.

Clients frequently cannot afford to pay for full-time accounting and finance staff, and sometimes do not have employees with the specialization required to perform certain business accounting tasks. The key types of bookkeeping, payroll, and business accounting services clients often need are:

  • After-the-fact financial statement preparation – Sometimes called “write-up,” is when checks, invoices, and cash receipts have already been written and collected. Windes helps to properly log this data into a general ledger in order to create accurate financial statements.
  • Transaction Processing – Windes handles the processing of regular accounting transactions like issuing invoices, check payments, payroll processing, and payroll tax processing.
  • Outsourced CFO and/or Controller Services – Windes provides a seasoned senior CPA to meet regularly with client management, review financial performance, and provide strategic input.
