Where Does SD Mayer Offer Outsourced Accounting for Startups?

We are based in the Bay Area — the location of many tech and other startups. Our helpful team members can visit your office, or work remotely if you prefer. We can also assist companies worldwide.

Why Use Outsourced Accounting for Your Startup?

The rush of launching a startup can quickly settle into a daily grind where you don’t have the right staff to assist with your venture. The positions of chief financial officer, controller and treasurer are responsible for critical decisions, but they also can be challenging to fill. You need staff dedicated to your company’s vision and who you can trust not to reveal information.

Stop searching for a unicorn candidate who checks all your boxes. Instead, rely on our outsourced accountant services for startup businesses. We take care of all the things you would usually leave for accounting, such as payroll, accounts payable and receivable, and more. In addition to looking after day-to-day tasks, we provide a holistic examination of your financial picture. We can identify places where you can save or should remain on your current course to realize the most significant long-term benefits.

Startups are busy places driven by a vision of providing a new product or service that either doesn’t exist or is not done well. People with vision and passion lead startups and often convince people to invest in them. Startups must be particularly careful with those investments, working to make them pay off. When you have a trusted financial professional with years of experience behind them, you can dismiss any fears your investors may have and look toward a successful future.

Using outsourced startup accounting services for your San Francisco startup offers cost flexibility. Instead of being locked into a full employee salary, you only pay for the tasks you need. You can cut back when you want and add more when you have the cash. For smaller startups, outsourcing also offers you the freedom to focus on growing your company as you and your small staff won’t feel distracted by accounting matters that can eat up valuable time.
