What happens after you schedule a consult?

When you schedule a consultation with KPMG Spark, you then meet with a representative who goes through an info session with you. There, we get to know you better and see what type of plan would fit best for your business so you get the most value out of our services. Some businesses will require a more complex setup with many accounts while others may just need a simple plan.

After we are able to obtain enough information and prepare things, an onboarding meeting is scheduled with the client experience team to be able to link bank accounts and make sure all things are in order. Our bookkeeping team then gets to work on your books.

Where are your bookkeepers located?

All of our bookkeepers at KPMG Spark are based out of our office in Salt Lake City, Utah. We work with trusted individuals with experience in their fields. With KPMG Spark you are able to work with real people who you can contact to make sure all your information is correct.

What does your bookkeeper do?

Ultimately, your bookkeeper does your books! Your bookkeeper works to make sure every transaction is marked correctly. This way, when you need to do your taxes all your information is readily available. Combined with the online accounting software we have developed, there is no need for manual entry. All you have to do is securely connect your bank accounts, credit cards, and payment apps. The data will then flow in real-time into your account so you can see your income, expenses, and other financial information. Your bookkeeper will make sure everything is in order and will contact you for further information if needed.

AI and machine learning

Using the online accounting software KPMG Spark has developed, bookkeepers are able to effectively keep track of your finances by automating as much as possible. Our bookkeepers oversee everything to make sure all transactions are able to be classified and organized correctly. Through artificial intelligence and machine learning, our processes continue to improve and become more efficient, so your financial information can stay up-to-date even faster.

All this work is put in by our bookkeepers so you can spend more of your time focusing on important aspects of your business and less time worrying about your accounting and bookkeeping. With KPMG Spark, you get an incredible online solution as well as a human bookkeeper to help guide you through your tax preparation process.
