Controller Service

If you are looking for greater financial oversight, our controller services are your solution. From month end close to financial analysis and forecasting, we help you keep a pulse on your business to drive better decisions. These services include:

Implementation of Processes and Procedures

To truly set your business up for success, you need systems and processes to automate and scale repeatable actions. As Controllers, building these systems into the accounting workflow is our second nature. We are lovers of checklists and processes. We map out the exact steps that need to be taken for each element of the accounting cycle, from bank reconciliations, to payroll, to month end close. Not only does this help us do our job efficiently, but sets your business up for success by providing a baseline of systematic and repeatable actions.

Month-End Close

Having timely and relevant financial information is key to your ability to understand your business and make decisions. Implementing a month end close process will provide you with clarity in understanding your business performance, and also give you confidence that your financial statements are accurate and available when you need them.

Cash Management

Cash is king, and your business needs a handle on it to be successful. Resolve Works can help you manage both your incoming and outgoing cash flows and prepare cash forecasting models so you know what you’ll need and when you’ll need it.

Financial Analysis

We analyze your financial results so you can understand your performance, monitor trends, and and track your progress against goals.

Annual Budgeting

Preparing an annual budget provides a financial roadmap for your strategic initiatives. Regular budget vs. actual analysis also provides timely insight so you understand if you need to take corrective action now to meet your strategic goals tomorrow.

Forecasting and Pro-Forma Statements

If your business is wanting to understand its growth path, is considering financing, or contemplating an acquisition, preparing Pro-Forma statements can help you understand what that picture may look like given a certain set of assumptions. Working with your leadership team to define those assumptions, we can help you prepare and analyze what those “what-if” scenarios mean for your business.

Business Strategy and Planning

We offer quarterly and annual strategic planning sessions that go beyond just the books and focuses on the business as a whole. Utilizing the EOS® process, we help you identify long-term goals for the future, establish specific financial goals, analyze obstacles that may keep you from reaching your goals, and determine specific action items that help you overcome obstacles and make progress against your long-term objectives.

What Our Clients Have To Say About RW.

" Creative professionals are often weak-to-hopeless when it comes to procedures, paperwork and other unsexy money matters. GUILTY!! [Resolve Works] turned our accumulated chaos into order quickly and with zero friction. [RW] keeps everything running smoothly and provide thorough, thoughtful counsel whenever needed. Super responsive, utterly pro and a true pleasure to work with. Be smart, hire them. They work miracles! "

Julie K, owner, strategic brand consultancy

" I was struggling to keep up with the bookkeeping for a growing retail business. I tried hiring inexperienced, part time help and ended up spending more time correcting and auditing than I had previously spent doing all the entries myself! Jill and her team at [RW] offered a professional solution that could grow with my business. They helped me correct the mistakes I originally made in the set up of my books and provided credible balance sheet and earnings reports. Jill and Miranda are helpful, responsive, and capable. They are so careful and detailed that I no longer worry about data entry. I am so happy with the value of the service I would not hesitate to recommend [RW] to anyone. "
