Online bookkeeping and CFO services for high growth ecommerce companies
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.

Co-Founder @ Superhuman
Prior to Kruze, as a remote-first team, we were weighed down by a lot of the bureaucracy involved with having a distributed workforce. Kruze has supported us above and beyond basic accounting needs by ensuring we have everything we need to expand and support our team wherever they may be located
Pequity's Head of Operations & Legal
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.
