Which is the best firm assisting to incorporate a tech startup and continue with tax and administrative issues?

Vanessa Kruze Kruze Consulting

Vanessa Kruze

CEO and Founder of Kruze Consulting

If you’re looking to incorporate your tech startup, you’ll want to do so with a lawyer (Orrick, Gunderson, Lowenstein) or an online service (LegalZoom, HireAnEsquire, Clerky). An accountant may also be able to help, but incorporation docs tend to be reserved for the legal team. As for ongoing startup tax, accounting, & finance issues, you’ll want to work with a CPA that knows you, your industry, and your plans for the future. Pricing can vary widely as each startup is unique, but I’d say expect to pay $500/month in accounting for an early stage company. You may also have to pay an on-boarding fee if there’s a backlog of work.

If you’re looking for help on the tax, accounting, and finance side, I’d be happy to help. I’m a CPA and the founder of Kruze Consulting, where we provide Accounting, Tax, Finance, and HR for over 500+ startups. In the past I’ve worked at Deloitte Tax and I was the Controller of a 120+ employee startup. Our COO Scott Orn is a Kellogg MBA, former VC Partner at Lighthouse Capital Partners, and before that was an investment banker at JPMorgan. Together we’ve created an all-in-one back office solution for VC backed startups. Most importantly, we love what we do and look to form lasting partnerships with our clients.

Our services include: temp CFO services, bookkeeping, payroll, benefits, taxes, debt & equity fundraising assistance, 409A reporting, board financials, AR, AP, and HR. We also build financial models for startups that have been used to pitch premier VC firms. Our clients have raised over half a billion dollars in funding in the past twelve months.

We have offices in San Francisco, NYC, San Jose and Santa Monica.

$250M+ VC Funding Raised
I had a great experience working with Kruze Consulting when we raised Series A. They know what VCs need to see, and how to present a startup’s books and finances. If you are going to raise venture capital, you need experts like Kruze.
