Financial Reports

Timely and accurate reporting of your associations’ financial matters is critical to making sure your Board stays on budget.  Our accounting professionals prepare your balance sheet, income and expense statements, manage your accounts payable and receivables, general ledger, deposit and check history.  They also prepare a comprehensive monthly financial status report for your Board to keep you updated on your community’s financial status at all times.  

Budget Preparation

It can often be a challenge to make sure that maintenance fees are in line with your association’s economic needs, while taking into account the need to maintain or improve your community’s overall aesthetics.  Our team leverages its combined financial, accounting and property management expertise to successfully balance these needs.  As part of this process, they prepare draft budgets for Board review, including a 12-month history of expenses incurred and previous expenses for comparison.

Annual Audit & Tax Preparation

Our financial and accounting professionals prepare all documents necessary for annual third-party CPA audits and tax preparation.  We also enable Board-hired attorneys and CPAs to access relevant documents through our FirstService Residential Connect software platform, which significantly reduces time and preparation costs for your association.
