High growth ecommerce companies require more than just simple financial statement preparation and tax returns.
Cash flow forecasting based on inventor trends, state and local taxes, SKU level analysis, the nuances of Amazon vs Shopify vs Paypal, gross vs net revenue - all of these complications require an experienced accounting team. Just like your ecommerce customers expect a great online experience, our outsourced bookkeeping and CFO team will produce your financial statements online.
Enterprise SaaS, small business SaaS, consumer SaaS, app store SaaS - they’re all different, and we’ve worked with hundreds of SaaS companies, delivering high quality books, tax advice and CFO level advice.
SaaS companies should look for online bookkeeping solutions that are paired with experienced SaaS accountants. That’s because not all accountants know how to correctly recognize SaaS revenue and expenses. Many online bookkeepers fail to correctly identify contract lengths, discounts and more. And when the MRR and ARR numbers don’t match the books, VCs get concerned.
Work with a team that knows SaaS accounting.
Biotech companies bookkeeping and accounting needs are extremely specialized.
Managing cash burn and taking advantage of government tax incentives can’t be automated; your biotechnology startup needs experienced healthcare and drug development accounting advice.
As your biotech company is getting ready to head through FDA and government trials and certification, you’ll want to work with an experienced CFO who can help you anticipate the costs and possible bottlenecks.
And your online bookkeeping needs to be both fast and accurate, so you can carefully manage your burn rate as you develop your drug.
Inventory accounting, build of material calculation and working capital constraints make even early-stage hardware companies complex from an accounting and bookkeeping perspective.
Kruze’s team works with agtech, healthcare, direct-to-consumer and other hardware startups, helping the founders understand their cash flows and prepare for venture capital rounds. We have a number of "hardware as a service" clients that combine SaaS revenue streams with hardware.
Building a physical product is hard enough - work with an accounting firm that can help you focus on your technology and not your books.
Building a startup is hard enough - but layering on the complex regulatory environment and difficult purchasing cycles of the healthcare industry adds a whole new level of complexity.
Founders of healthcare startups deserve an accountant who has seen the healthcare startup journey more than once and who can offer valuable guidance and advice.
From claiming R&D tax credits to accurately projecting cash burn, the Kruze team is ready to support your healthtech company.
Our online bookkeeping will help you understand where you’ve been, and our outsourced CFOs can help you visualize where you are going.
Fast growing CPG companies should have specialized accounting help to deal with complex issues related to inventory, BOMs, gross vs net revenues and more.
Kruze’s team has worked with food startups, supplement providers, subscription fashion and more. And we know that high growth comes with its own problems, especially understanding how inventory and manufacturing impact cash flow and getting a handle on customer acquisition costs.
Getting a new product in the hands of consumers is hard. Don’t let your accounting distract you!

Startup CFO services, startup accounting and bookkeeping services, startup annual taxes, expense reports, payroll, benefits: we've got you covered. Our software provides custom tailored dashboards that can be provided weekly or monthly, depending on your preference and plan. Founders are often so busy building their company that they don’t have time to take care of their finances. Traditionally, these companies have had to work with a basket of people to get their work done, including bookkeepers, accountants, AP clerks, CFOs, consultants, and tax accountants. At Kruze Consulting, our founders have one point person, saving time and money.
We're huge fans of Vanessa and the folks at Kruze Consulting. They set up our books, finances, and other operations, and are constantly organized and on top of things. As a startup, you have to focus on your product and customers, and Kruze takes care of everything else (which is a massive sigh of relief). I highly highly highly recommend working with Vanessa and her team.

As a startup, moving quickly is a top priority for us and we just needed to get our tax return done. After we uploaded our docs, we got our tax return in 3 days! E-filing was confirmed by Day 4. Super responsive and helpful!

Avochato has been growing rapidly in the past year – in fact, too quickly for us to keep up with books, taxes, and budgeting for growth. Partnering with Kruze Consulting has been fantastic to manage, track, and analyze our finances while we continue focusing on building our customer base. Kruze’s team knows what startups need.

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.

Kruze Consulting is the perfect Accounting, Finance and Tax partner for Los Angeles Startups. Kruze delivers exceptional monthly reporting and financial projections. When we need help with benefits or payroll, Kruze solves our problems. Kruze does our taxes for a fraction of what previous accountants have charged. Thank you Kruze for being a great partner.
CEO @ FLYR
Being a repeat tech entrepreneur, I know how challenging it is to find the ideal CFO - not only is it often expensive to find the right one, but CFOs who combine expertise with scrappiness, market vision and perspective with detail orientation and 'roll up your sleeves' execution is near impossible for an early stage company. So I've been thrilled to work with Kruze Consulting, who not only provide all the ideal characteristics of a top-tier tech CFO, but also live and breathe entrepreneurship themselves. I've known Scott and Vanessa for many years and their deep personal integrity and strong reputation in the industry and made it an easy decision to work with them again.
CEO @ HobNob
NIH, NSF, and SBIR grant compliance can add a lot of overhead for a start-up. The Kruze team makes it easy, so we can spend our time growing the business instead of shoveling paperwork.
CEO @ Mission Bio
As a startup, it’s incredibly important to keep track of where our money is coming from and where it’s being spent. Kruze Consulting really helps keep our books and taxes in order so that we can focus on the core business. Extremely responsive and very professional, the accountants at Kruze Consulting are a pleasure to work with. We’d highly recommend their services.
