Oakland Nonprofit Bookkeeping Firm Says It’s Not too Late to Switch Accounting Firms

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — The new year is all about new beginnings, and many nonprofit organizations will move on to a different accounting firm at the start of 2012. Although some organizations with a 12/31 fiscal year may feel they have already missed the opportunity to find a new firm, Oakland nonprofit accounting firm Nonprofit Suite says there is still time to find the right partner for nonprofit accounting, nonprofit bookkeeping, and nonprofit payroll services for the new year.

The Oakland/San Francisco nonprofit bookkeeping firm, which exclusively specializes in accounting for nonprofit organizations, understands that obtaining approval from the board to switch accounting partners may take some time, but encourages organizations seeking a better fit to continue looking, even though they weren’t able to get the decision approved by the end of 2011.

“Nonprofit Suite understands that it's not always possible to make the decision to change accounting firms and get board approval by the end of the calendar year. Therefore, our team is always ready to take on new clients and make the conversion to Nonprofit Suite convenient for them versus easy for us,” explained Annette J. Cook, Founder and CEO of Nonprofit Suite.

The experienced team at the Oakland nonprofit bookkeeping company Nonprofit Suite is trained and experienced with the unique structure and operations of tax-exempt entities to provide better service to their clients. They implement solutions that maximize the client organization’s resources in order to meet regulatory needs and ensure sound fiscal practices.

The work of Nonprofit Suite doesn’t end at the office, as each member of the team dedicates his or her own personal time, money, and talents to a number of nonprofit organizations. In support of Nonprofit Suite employees, the company actually provides 2 days off per year to each employee so they can provide service to the nonprofits they support.

The team regularly volunteers time and resources to Adopt-A-Classroom, Fix Our Ferals, Public Radio, Human Rights Campaign, Habitat for Humanity, Insight Garden Program at San Quentin, East Bay Sanctuary Covenant, First Mennonite Church of San Francisco, East Bay SPCA, elementary and high school PTAs, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, San Francisco AIDS Walk, Alameda Science and Technology Institute, St. Joachim Church Finance and Stewardship Committee, Latino Leadership Committee All Saints Church, Mustang Soccer, and San Ramon Valley Education Foundation.

"Each member of the Nonprofit Suite team is personally involved in the support of nonprofits through their donations of both time and money. Their dedication to the missions that are personal to them gives them a unique and caring perspective, which translates to providing outstanding service to our clients. I am proud of our team and of their willingness to give back each and every day," said Cook.
