Our Services Go Beyond Just Bookkeeping and Accounting! 

In order to run a successful business, you need a clear view of your financial health. It’s critical in today’s competitive marketplace.

Do you measure your company’s success by critical key performance indicators as well as other industry-specific statistics? That’s how we look at things and are important indicators of success. Profitable revenue, healthy accounts receivable, and accounts payable are also important indicators.

Most in our industry can grow a company.  The question is can you grow profitably?  The question is do you have the policies and procedures in place to create profitable growth?

The financial discipline and protocols is what we help you with to make sure that the money coming in the front door contributes to profitability and doesn’t leak out the back door.

It’s all about focusing on the results of your efforts and the reports that we provide you with to make managing your growth an achievable goal.  These reports allow you to focus on cost containment, tax minimization and manageable growth.

Baseball teams keep score by counting runs.  Football teams keep score by counting touchdowns.  When you have your own business, counting money is the way to keep score.  It is extremely important for you to know where you stand from a financial perspective.  Budgeting and setting goals is a critical component to your financial and operating game plan.  Knowing what you want to accomplish strategically is absolutely vital and measuring against this objective is paramount.  Our experts can help you formulate a budget and set realistic goals.

Signing up with Turf Books has be one of the best investments we have made in our business. Dan and his team were there when we needed them most, helping make our transition from our old accountant and bookkeeper to Turf Books quick and seamless. Our old accountant would always ask me “how did you do this month”, Turf Books tells me how we are doing, and how our numbers stack up against the rest of the industry. Due to their industry involvement they are also a great resource for other industry information, best practices as well as other “Go to people” in the industry. We wish we did it sooner.”
