QuickBooks: List Sorting

QuickBooks: List Sorting

By default, lists in QuickBooks are sorted in a certain preset manner.

The accounting process involves recording, interpreting, classifying, analyzing, reporting and summarizing financial data.

Our services are industry agnostic so we support businesses that range from professional services firms and VC-funded startups to small businesses and sole proprietors.

Our team is comprised of Silicon Valley Accounting Solutions employees in the United States, so your financial data is never relegated to subcontractors or sent overseas.

Some reasons businesses outsource their accounting to us include:

  • Lack of accounting processes & procedures
  • Inability to forecast or budget
  • Inaccurate or late financial reporting
  • Personnel churn, lack of internal expertise and even theft
  • Poor or non-existent accounting technology integrations

 

 

Done this before?

We have. Hundreds of times. GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles), best practices, accounting education and experience - is why you want to engage us.

Want to do it better?

One of our favorite things to do is to educate our clients so they can reclaim the accounting and finance function internally – with confidence in the timeliness and accuracy of their abilities.

Don’t want to deal with it?

Don’t sweat the details. We ask the right questions; understand your needs; and deliver results. It’s what we do. You won’t have to manage the process or participate any more than you choose.

TOOLS WE USE

Any job requires the right tools.  Accounting is no different.  We use the tools that are best for your business.

"When I did a search for ‘accounting san jose’, I found lots of CPA firms and tax preparers. Maybe I searched for the wrong thing because what I really needed was someone to create a balance sheet and cash flow statement for my small business. More importantly, I needed someone that could walk me through these types of financial reports on a monthly basis. When I called SVAS, I could tell right away that they knew what they were talking about. I’ve been a loyal customer now for more than five years!"
