KPMG Spark Helps Small Businesses

The variety of services offered by KPMG Spark allows our clients to grow, develop, and focus on things that matter most. Our services take the responsibilities of bookkeeping and give you all your necessary financial information at the touch of a button or from a quick call to your dedicated bookkeeper. Our contributions not only help you save time so you can focus on other aspects of your business, but it also gives you the information you need in an efficient, presentable, and tax-ready format. 

New Member of Your Team

When you use KPMG Spark’s services, you not only receive access to our one of a kind software but you also receive a dedicated bookkeeper that you can contact who keeps track of your books and is there at your service. Your bookkeeper is there to serve you and you can always reach out to them with concerns, questions, or even just updates about your company. 

Our bookkeepers enjoy helping their clients and getting to know them and their respective industries. It is so easy to stay in contact with your bookkeeper, you can call or text them when you need information, advice, or consultation. One of our own account leads stated, “Clients LOVE having a live bookkeeper that they can text, call, or email. So many will text me receipts, email me wanting a quick call, or need me to set up a meeting with a CPA. They love having someone working with them on it all.” Having a personal bookkeeper that you can stay in contact with is one of our most popular services as it helps you stay up to date with your books. 

Our bookkeepers work at your pace so you can always be on the same page. This helps our small business partners have the books in order at all stages in their growth. One of our startup partners recently commented, “the bookkeeping team is incredibly responsive and helpful which is critical given the fast pace of our growing business”. KPMG Spark is so much more than a bookkeeping software company, we want to add value to your business. Your dedicated bookkeeper keeps up with you so you can be readily informed of the standing of your business and so you can focus on other, more pressing matters at any given moment. 

“Our Biggest Time Saver”

As a small business, doing bookkeeping on your own can be daunting and extremely time-consuming. KPMG Spark takes the bookkeeping, payroll, tax preparation, invoices, and so much more off your plate so you can focus on what really needs your attention. As one of our partners recently stated, “[Spark] fuses together some of our most time-intensive tasks into a single platform, streamlining our accounting through to taxes”. Here are just some of the services we can take off your hands. 

Online Bookkeeping

Just connect all your accounts, and we’ll reconcile your books, securely and quietly in the background. No more monthly reconciliation. Bookkeeping made simple by yours truly. 

Tax Preparation

We simplify the tax preparation process for you so you can focus on what matters: the day-to-day of your business. Then when you need your tax documents, we’ll already have them ready for you.

Expenses

Track mileage and other expenses in our unified interface that seamlessly flows into your books and reimbursement processes. Our software has been designed specifically so you can have access to everything you need in a simplified interface that you can see whenever you need it. 

These services, as well as others found at kpmgspark.com, allow you to put more of your time into other aspects of your business like product development, marketing, hiring employees, training, culture development, and other time-intensive tasks for small businesses. As some of our business partners have commented, “Switching over to Spark allowed me to gain more control over the creative part of my business” and “Spark makes it easy for me to focus on my customers and not spending my time worried about… my books”. We make time for your books so you can take time for vital parts of your business. 

Let Our Accounting Experience Help Your Business Thrive

The combination of our software and our accounting professionals working with you is unmatched and creates a system that allows a business to streamline its efforts to achieve stability and profit. With customizable monthly reports and tax-ready information, all the information you need is right at your fingertips. A startup partner of ours recently commented, “The customizable monthly reports allow us to present our financial picture in a professional and crisp layout.” Our software allows your information to be readily available so you can stay up to date and keep other parts of your business on the same page with your finances. 

In order to keep your business alive and healthy, your finances and financial decisions need to be on the same page. For example, when you get a new plant you have to know how often and how much you need to water it to keep it alive and healthy. Likewise, with your business, you cannot spend too much or too little money or you will inhibit its growth. KPMG Spark’s services work with your business as the info sheet that comes with your plant to provide you the financial information you need to stay up to date with your finances and keep your business alive and healthy. The information we give you works so you can know how much to ‘water’ your business so it continues to thrive. 

Let's Spark Something

Here at KPMG Spark, we love helping small businesses with their online accounting so they can grow to their full potential. We’ve had many partnerships over the years and these partners have continually shown positive growth with our help. The accounting system for small businesses that we have developed is a combination of our one of a kind software and a dedicated bookkeeper and CPA to make sure your books are in order. No need to stress about getting things ready for tax season or getting all your expenses in order, your bookkeeper’s got it covered. Online bookkeeping is our bread and butter and we can take it off your shoulders so you can get back to what makes your business yours. One of our partners said it best, “With KPMG, I finally feel like my business matters.”
