A3 Accounting can help you accurately determine the value of your business. We conduct an independent study of the ongoing business as of a certain date that will help determine the business’s fair market value.  Each business is different and requires a set of relevant valuation metrics.  The valuations are structured, logical, adequately supported, and utilize proper methodology.  They are used for multiple purposes, such as financing and recapitalizations, purchase price allocations, mergers & acquisitions, spin-offs, corporate restructuring, sale or purchase of a business, partner or shareholder buyouts, and fairness opinions.

Instead we get compensated only for the work that we perform.  You will still have a very skilled staff.  But we may be able to do it for around half the cost.  That's a ton of money saved!  This is an immediate cost reduction for you!  It is money in the bank for you, and it has a positive and immediate net profit impact showing your company is earning more.  And, all information remains confidential and secure.  Payrolling - we can also put your other employees on our payroll so that you do not need to pay them a large fringe benefits ratio yet they and the work they do are still under your full control. Keep more of the money you make by hiring us today.

For example, a performance management system should help create a high-performance organization by aligning the organization and human capital pieces needed to get to a high performance level. Blended into this framework are: quality improvement, process improvement, employee productivity level increases, and decrease costs. A performance management system could be utilized as both a corporate governance and operational tool.
 
   Governance tool – the board should have involvement in such an initiative.
      • To communicate their strategy
      • To broaden discussions at board meetings
      • To improve deliberations
   Operational tool – management should participate for the following reasons.
      • To translate the organization’s strategy into tangible objectives and measures
      • To communicate the strategy downward
      • To provide organized regular reports to the board on progress on the strategic plan
      • As a future road map, as opposed to an accounting system that measures events of the past
     • To visualize the cause-and-effect linkages between outcomes in the financial and customer perspectives and the drivers of those outcomes: the value proposition, critical internal processes, and human, information, and organization capital
      • To implement strategy into operations
      • To align employees’ individual objectives
