Solution Providers Guide: Accounting & Bookkeeping

Solution Providers Guide: Accounting & Bookkeeping

The VENTUREAPP platform collects data from solution providers, experts and businesses interacting on our marketplace. We are presenting this data to help determine the top solution providers, as referred or used by businesses on our network.

Startups have lots of tools and service providers to consider when it comes to their finances. If a startup is very young, they might only need a bookkeeper or online software to help manage their books. As a startup scales, they might require further counsel and management fro an accountant. Whether you need an accountant or bookkeeper is dependent on the stage of your startup and your own comfort-level. You might find that you only need an accountant for occasional advice, and especially during tax season. We took a look at the best accountants, bookkeepers, and solutions being used or recommended on our platform. Stay tuned for timely, specific tax services options later this week…

This way, we give you a head start by doing the legwork and sieving through the many options to find those with the best reputation for startups of various sizes and stages. We encourage your input and recommendations so we can treat this as a living & breathing document and resource. If you have experiences with any of these solution providers – positive or negative – that you’d like to share, we welcome that input as well.
