Why Us

The Problem

All successful businesses demand an ongoing investment of time in relation to the accounting tasks, internal controls, and infrastructure within the company.

Within accounting departments there are Bookkeepers, Controllers, and Chief Financial Officers, each playing a specific and important role.


Most small businesses cannot justify having dedicated staff for these three central functions. As a result, the owner tends to spend valuable time fulfilling these roles which generally is not the best use of the owner’s talent or time.

The Solution

A successful business is in its most productive state when working with professional accountants. Socius Accounting Solutions provides access to professionals trained in all three distinct functions in a collaborative and customizable approach. For example, if the business already has a bookkeeper, Socius works alongside this staff member providing direction and controls.

We offer our customizable services for a fixed, monthly fee that aligns with the client’s particular needs and values.  This provides clear communication on the scope of work and removes the misalignment of understanding that can sometimes exist with the hourly billing model.  With efficiency and expertise at our core, the client is able to save valuable resources on expenses such as salaries, benefits, training, and recruitment.

What makes us unique is our partnership approach. We leverage technology for accurate delivery of this solution in a secure and innovative way that empowers business owners to focus on what they do best.
