For the small business owner, the necessity of keeping financial records may be the difference between success, failure, or years of mediocracy. For most owners, their passion compelled them into taking the risk of working for themselves. Almost no one started a business so they could spend hours and hours working on their bookkeeping. Learn how MAT can decrease busywork and increase profitability for your business.
This is where ‘My Accounting Team (MAT) enters the picture. MAT is an accounting and bookkeeping outsourcing company. They deliver people, processes, and technology to small and mid-size companies.
The secret of their success lies in the seamless integration of technology with simplicity. They allow small to medium-sized businesses the benefit of a team of financial experts for the price of one part-time employee.
Small companies usually cannot afford a finance department, including Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Controller, and a full-time CFO. Nor can they afford to staff an IT department to keep all of those resources working. MAT provides both the services of accounting and bookkeeping along with the technology to keep every person productive.
While their base of operations is out of Portland, Oregon, their clients receive the benefit of their technology and expertise through their computer, tablet, or phone.
MAT is one of the few licensed providers of Sage Intacct. This platform offers our clients access to every necessary bookkeeping and accounting tool. Best of all, the user interface is intuitive, informative, and actionable. Clients of MAT will also enjoy other technology applications to make their businesses more efficient, like ‘bill.com’ and ‘Expensify.’
While MAT is not a CPA firm, they do work with their client’s CPAs closely. At year-end, they provide the CPA with everything needed to complete taxes efficiently and quickly.
Growth for MAT mainly comes from word-of-mouth referrals. Once a small business owner sees the benefit of investing more of their time into their business instead of into their accounting, they usually tell a friend.
