Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a bookkeeper if I am just starting my company or there is very little activity?
Every business should track the income and expenses to ensure their financial success. A big step toward this is to have a bookkeeper or a bookkeeping company to assist you with that. Every business, big or small, is different and should be treated as a unique entity and should receive quality experienced bookkeeping services.
Why should Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates handle the books for my business?

When is the best time to get started?
In a perfect world, the best time to get started is before you open your doors for business. But if you are open for business, and you do not have a bookkeeper, now is the time because it is never too late to get your bookkeeping in order.
How do I get started?
We at Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates will make that process as simple and easy as possible. We will provide you with some forms to fill out with your important company information and through our one-hour free consultation; we will establish a process to continue over the time required for your business.
How will I get you all the paperwork/data every month?
With today’s technology, there are many different ways to accomplish this. But we structure a specific method that fits your needs and requirements, and we even make business calls.
How often will I get reports?
As often as you need or want them. Financial reports are provided monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually depending on the needs of your business.
Why would I need these reports?
First of all, the business owner needs to know and understand where your business stands financially. Also, banks may want the reports for the purposes of review for a Line of Credit or a loan. Finally, in the future, you may want to buy out a partner or sell the business, and financial reports are a necessity for those transactions as well.
What are the costs for bookkeeping services?
Each business is different, and we structure a monthly or hourly fee based on the needs of the business. We do understand that a business needs to be financially sound in order to grow, and we will do everything we can to provide cost effective and efficient bookkeeping services.
