HA&W’s New Client Accounting Services Offering Helps Business Focus on Their Customers

January 28, 2016

Access to world-class experts and NetSuite platform enable businesses of all sizes to reap efficiencies, reduce costs and mitigate risks

January 28, 2016- HA&W, LLP, a nationally recognized tax, audit and business advisory firm headquartered in Atlanta, has launched Client Accounting Services to help its business clients do less accounting and put more focus on serving their customers.

HA&W’s Client Accounting Services covers the full range of standard transactional functions such as accounts payable, accounts receivable, financial reporting, general ledger and month-end reconciliation, payroll processing and bank reconciliation. But each client engagement may be tailored to include advanced services, such as budgeting, forecasting, tax return planning and advisory – all of which can reduce the business risks often associated with inadequate accounting practices.

“For many businesses, transactional accounting can be cumbersome, error-prone and detrimental to overall performance,” said William Estes, director, HA&W Client Accounting Services. “When our clients shift their accounting and payroll responsibilities to us, they spend less time on paperwork and more time growing their business and serving their customers.”

Fire & Flavor, a fast-growing manufacturer of grilling and flavoring products based in Athens, Ga., outsources its accounting and finance functions to HA&W. Doing so allows its management team to focus on operations and marketing, and leave accounting duties and issues to a four-person staff of HA&W professionals who also draw on the expertise of specialists as needed.

“As our company kept growing, the accounting and bookkeeping were becoming a bottleneck,” said Davis Knox, co-founder & CEO of Fire & Flavor. “Now, I’m getting a larger and more experienced accounting team.”

Clients like Fire & Flavor realize further efficiencies at tax time. Because HA&W’s Client Accounting Services platform operates on world-class NetSuite enterprise finance and accounting software, many other corporate functions – including tax preparation, payroll, retirement plans and others – can be easily integrated into one system. In addition, NetSuite’s real-time dashboards, budgeting and reporting provide better decision support for growing businesses of all sizes.

“My HA&W team are experts. So I no longer need to focus on trying to understand and solve complex accounting issues,” added Knox. “It frees up more of my time to manage and grow our business.”
