SaaS Accounting Services
As a SaaS provider, you and your team invest significant time and resources into R&D to create a product that surpasses your previous release as well as your competitors. Due to the capital intensive and competitive nature of your industry, it is extremely important that care and attention are given to budgeting, forecasting and financial reporting. Without accurate, reliable, and timely financial data it is impossible to measure the success of your company. We can work with you to identify useful Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) and provide KPI reporting on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.
Unlike the enterprise software firms of the past that could count on large upfront fees, the SaaS business model receives small amounts of recurring revenues over longer periods of time. A SaaS business model can be a great strength by providing the cash and revenue stabilization that is attractive to lenders and investors; however, it does provide cash challenges during the development stage.
