Early Growth’s experts also analyze trial balance relationships and develop controls to ensure the integrity of financial statement data.
Early Growth’s accounting services team makes sure you avoid discrepancies, errors or fraud by tightly reconciling your bank statement to confirm that your transactions align with your balance sheet.
We deliver an accurate assessment of how your spending and revenue generation meet the financial forecasting projections to identify where you are over or under budget, if you can hire additional employees, or shine light on a gross profit margin that’s not line with expectations.

“The financial reporting, whether to the government and the taxes we pay or other concerns, was taking away from the innovation of the product and being able to help our customers. Having Early Growth take on that function allowed us to not worry about that, so we could focus on the most important thing, our customers.”
