San Francisco Accounting - All you need to know
Kruze Consulting is a leading San Francisco accounting firm, with CPAs, controllers, bookkeepers, staff accountants and CFOs ready to help San Francisco based startups and eCommerce companies. Kruze is specifically focused on the accounting needs of seed and venture capital funded companies in the Bay Area and beyond.The founders of funded startups based in San Francisco have a lot of pressure. Pressure from their board to grow. Pressure from their employees to create a great work environment to reduce employee churn. And an unfortunate side-effect of being in San Francisco - extra regulatory pressure.In most locations, early-stage companies mainly have federal and state compliance requirements. But in San Francisco, there are a variety of extra taxes and regulatory filings, including:
1. The SF payroll tax. 2. The San Francisco gross receipts tax. 3. A special SF asset test and tax. 4. The San Francisco business registration5. Loads of special tax liabilities and paperwork.
Kruze’s accountants specialize in helping local founders avoid missing compliance deadlines - so they can focus on their business, not on paperwork.
