We help you adapt and grow as your business needs change by providing a team of seasoned finance professionals helping you make the right choices

You need our Controller Services when:

What does a Controller do?

A controller can help you consolidate the disparate processes, technology, and people that have gotten you this far & provides a layer of accountability for bookkeepers and accountants, ensuring that each is doing the required work—from keeping up with timelines to adhering to financial expectations to compiling reports—to reach the company’s goals on time.

A controller sees strategic goals through to completion.Tracks the company’s overall budget.Ensures you’re hitting your budget and margins. While not ideal, it’s worth noting that if needed, a controller can also do an accountant’s job, such as close the books.

Our controller-led team will deliver the day-to-day accounting and bookkeeping tasks and add to that the internal controls, sophisticated reporting, and process expertise that will help you sleep well at night and put you in a position for success.

Plus, when your needs require a cost-effective pathway to receiving fractional CFO-level guidance on a project or ongoing basis, we are accustomed to managing that progression and we’ll work together to develop a roadmap that addresses your needs and meets your budget.

 

 

Control your finances

How We’ll Do it For You

Reviewing day to day financial operations

Our controllers will track the financial activity on a daily basis and ensure the accuracy of accounting treatment along with advisory on how to best handle them. They will act as a balancer in your finance department.

Month End Closings

Controllers help to close the books within a deadline  and here we contribute by creating detailed checklists with timeline, budgeted hours & responsible person.

Missed deadlines are costly for any business as it does not give sufficient time for the management to respond to the latest information about their business.

Internal Controls & Procedures

Every system has an inherent entropy. A controller works to build processes & systems for accounting, bookkeeping, and reporting, so that this entropy is kept under check and the controls are being built to consistently check the accuracy of data. The controls and procedures must be dynamic, responding to the changing dynamics of the business.

Compliance & Doc management

Every finance department should know tax and financial compliance requirements & implications inside and out. Our Controllers ensure that your company follows defined processes for keeping track of revenue, expenses, assets, and liabilities, so you stay in compliance.

Reporting Package

We build customized dashboards and reporting package for your business depending on your business KPIs and industry. The reporting package contains commentary on financials and includes industry wide benchmarking. The reporting contents are reviewed every month so as to retain the relevance of reports.

Budgetary Controls

Our Controllers will make sure that every financial transaction is happening as per our budgetary guidelines. Any deviation from the plan shall be reported and scrutinized into “Why” & “How to control in future”.

Sales is not the only Performance indicator. We can identify more than 50 performance indicators & suggest how to keep them under control.

Automate Manual Tasks
Controllers spot out the inefficiencies in the current process and automate as much as possible to reduce the time for month closing and reduce chances of errors as well.

Seamlessly perform the Month End Closings

Do not let the monthly closings delayed by unforeseen events. Our controllers take into account for every variable and respond accordingly based on their experience.

It was such a pleasure to work with Gaurev & team! He brought our business to a new, more mature level now that we have our books set up.

Excellent communication. Helpful. Understands how to work around clunky systems. My business & finance systems were in a mess. Honestly, I hated it. But Deskerra went above and beyond to help me straighten it out. Now i see my finances much better with their monthly reporting & my tax season headache has also vanished. Thank you for your patience and kindness. It really means a lot.

Delicia Ivins

Owner, Mission Marketing

Very few people are passionate about what they are doing & gaurev & his team are exactly that. Our previous accounting firm used to handle our bookkeeping & taxes, but i rarely saw them excited to talk. Gaurev, is always willing and excited to talk with us. He is always putting new ideas about how we can improvize our systems and our business. It feels like he is one of our business partner. We are very grateful to have found gaurev.

Generally, How much does a controller cost?

According to a recent survey by ledger labs, Average annual salaries for full-time, in-house controllers are in range from $70K to $150K. But with an accounting firm like Ledger Labs, you can get the same or better quality at a fraction of the cost.

Well, we do have a contractual system, whereby clients agree ad authorize us to work on their behalf. The idea behind this is to ensure a smooth working relationship.

HOW LONG WILL THE ON-BOARDING PROCESS TAKE?

The on-boarding process can range from 1 month to 3 depending upon the scale of the business. There are several check-lists that we follow to ensure that the on-boarding process is completed effectively.

We acknowledge the need for all of our clients to not only understand their financial data but learn from it and use the same to grow their business successfully. The team at Ledger Labs works consistently with clients to provide appropriate, considered and timely financial advice to clients according to their business needs.

Why doesn’t my Controller do all these services you mentioned?

Your “Controller” is not really a Controller. Many companies have someone who they call their Controller. Often these individuals are involved in bookkeeping tasks (i.e. paying bills, running payroll, etc.). If your “Controller” is not involved in financial analysis, budgeting, overhead control and cash flow planning, then your “Controller” is more of a bookkeeper.
