Specialized Accounting Services for Startups

Monitoring Burn Rate and Cash Flow

For startups, managing the burn rate and maintaining healthy cash flow are vital for sustainability and growth. Startup accounting services keep a close eye on your financial runway, offering proactive strategies to extend it and optimize cash flow.

Saving Time for Core Business Activities

As a startup founder, your focus should be on developing and marketing your products or services. Outsourcing your accounting and bookkeeping can free up valuable time, allowing you to concentrate on growing your business. An integrated financial platform can streamline this process even further, automating tasks like receipt capture for transactions and helping with month-end closures.

Choosing the Right Business Structure

Deciding on the appropriate business structure, whether it’s a C-Corp, LLC, or another form, is critical for startups. A specialized accounting firm can guide you in selecting the most advantageous structure based on your business’s unique needs and goals.

Leveraging Tax Credits

Startups in Canada and the US may qualify for various tax credits, such as the R&D tax credit. A dedicated accounting service for startups can identify these opportunities, ensuring your business capitalizes on potential tax savings.

Guiding Your Startup's Financial Management

Essential Financial Records for Your Startup

Maintaining accurate financial records is crucial for any startup. Key documents to keep include:

  • Receipts and memos for transactions over $75.

  • Invoices and bills for purchases.

  • Bank and credit card statements.

  • Previous tax returns.

  • T4, T4A and T5 forms for owners, employees and contractors.

  • Regularly updated financial statements, including income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements, prepared by your bookkeeper.

Record Retention Duration

It's advisable to keep most of your financial records for at least seven years. Having an organized, accessible storage system for these records is essential for easy retrieval and reference. We can introduce you to tools and platforms that streamline this process, ensuring your financial records are well-managed and readily available when needed.

Understanding Cash Basis vs. Accrual Basis Accounting

The choice between cash basis and accrual basis accounting is crucial:

  • Cash-basis accounting records transactions when cash changes hands.

  • Accrual-basis accounting records revenues and expenses when they are incurred, regardless of when the cash transaction happens.


The distinction is important because accrual accounting offers a more comprehensive view of your business's financial health over time, while cash accounting focuses on immediate cash flow. We guide startups in choosing the accounting method that best suits their business model, providing clarity on how each transaction impacts your financial statements.
