One of the most critical aspects of starting a new company is proper financial management.

Why Startups Need Professional Accountants

Growth can look a lot of different ways, depending on what you’re trying to accomplish. We understand that business models and strategic plans are a lot like snowflakes (no two are exactly the same). The Dunn CPA Firm offers a full suite of outsourced accounting startup services to meet your needs at any juncture of your growth trajectory; whether simple and complex.

Tax Compliance

A professional accountant from The Dunn CPA Firm will help ensure that a startup company is fully compliant with all relevant tax laws and regulations. We will help prepare and file tax returns, ensure that taxes are paid on time, and help them avoid penalties and fines.

Financial Planning

We will help a startup company develop a financial plan that outlines the company's financial goals, forecasts revenues and expenses, and helps the company plan for growth. We also help the company identify potential financial risks and opportunities.


A professional accountant will help a startup company maintain accurate and up-to-date financial records. This includes tracking income and expenses, managing accounts payable and accounts receivable, and reconciling bank statements.


A startup company may need to secure funding from multiple investors or lenders, and a professional outsourced accountant will help the company prepare financial statements and projections that will be required to secure this outside funding.

Legal Compliance

A professional accountant can help a company stay compliant with legal and regulatory requirements. This includes registering with the appropriate government agencies and ensuring that the company is in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.

Cost Savings

It is not uncommon for our team to save organizations the amount they’re investing in accounting (and more), by simply deploying best practices and tightening up financial books. By letting us manage the finances, the company can avoid costly mistakes and penalties.
