Things that Make Us Different should be Very Important to You (Part 1: Money)By: Dan Bender | NEWS | December 19, 2020
Just like any accounting/financial management team, we are a professional service. Our difference, and why we’ve maintained a perfect client retention rate is the level of service we provide and the pricing matching we use to match the unique needs of our clients.
There are 10 really important reasons why you should hire us, and I’ve outlined some of them here for you.
This first blog talks about money. At the end of the day, all of our clients are highly aware of their expenses (and that’s partially why they hire us).
Reason 1: Uniquely Tailored Monthly Retainer
We price our services based on a flat monthly fee. We do this for a couple of reasons.
First, it helps your business budget out a predictable expense.
Secondly, we want you to get comfortable letting us handle a ton of work related to accounting. The more you give us, the more effective we can be at helping you grow. Since you’re paying a flat fee, there’s no need to fear running up the clock or getting nickel and dimed when you call to ask questions.
Reason 2: Skilled team at a fraction of in-house expertise
Ironclad is staffed with multiple professionals with a variety of experience levels.
We provide lower cost associates where appropriate, but bring in an executive level CFO or CPA when needed. Using this blended approach, you get the horsepower you occasionally need, but at a lower cost than a full-time employee.
At the same time, you have year-round coverage because we have redundancies built in; our clients aren’t faced with having their accountant being on vacation or out sick.
Reason 3: Economies of scale, price negotiation, and advocacy
Due to the nature of our regular in-depth review of the books, we become hyper vigilant about eliminating unnecessary expenses on your behalf.
When we spot clients using services that are pricey compared to other clients, we dig in a bit deeper. Often times, we recommend lower cost alternatives or approach vendors on behalf of several clients together to negotiate a volume discount.
We certainly do this with the CPA’s we use to handle tax matters.
