Outsourced Accounting Solutions Tailored for Your Business

Outsourced accounting services help myriad businesses flourish in diverse ways. Lewis CPA works with companies as varied as law firms, healthcare practices, industrial companies, as well as nonprofit organizations.

Businesses with tight profit margins know all too well the value of disciplined cash flow management. For medium-sized and small businesses, a tight rein on equity, liabilities, assets, revenue, and expenses is crucial for success and growth.

Competent accounting services can minimize costs and spur efficiency, particularly with a high-tech workflow system. Grants are better stewarded, and officers are better informed when contemplating new initiatives.

Those firms practicing the learned professions, like law, face unique challenges. Profitability comes from multiple centers and tracking their activities demands special attention. We provide that focus from billing to payroll to taxes.

Clinics and affiliated businesses have their own business goals. Accounting services for these entities perform daily accounting tasks like payroll administration and electronic payment processing, among other office services.
