CFO, Controller, Tax Services

There are many reasons to contract with us for our CFO, Controller, Tax Services, and more including:

  • Expertise – because we offer specialized business consulting services across multiple industries, we are able to bring a depth of knowledge and awareness and the benefit of our extensive experience to your accounting and financial management systems
  • Budget – oftentimes, companies entering the all-important growth stage don’t have the budget for the specialized Accounting/CFO services they need to help them successfully reach the next level…contracting with LWI is an affordable way to get the expertise that will help get you to the next level
  • Cost Savings – when you hire LWI, you save on the traditional fringe benefits of an employee (insurance, vacation days, sick days, etc.)
Lescault and Walderman doesn’t charge for initial consultations or communications leading up to the engagement. This research phase helps us to get a feel for your organization, its needs and the overall scope of the project. We want to make every effort to ensure the optimum solution for our our clients and establish both the credibility and trust that a long-term relationship requires.
We have worked with clients ranging from 1m – 20M in annual revenues.  However, our services are designed around our clients’ specific needs.  Our experience has taught us that the appropriate accounting infrastructure should be dictated more by operations than revenue.
Because our services are customized and designed to fit the specific needs of each client, the overall project and ongoing work costs can vary.  However, all of our rates are billed on an hourly basis, with accounting services ranging from $50-$150/hour and consulting services ranging from $100-$200/hour. Note that these rates are subject to change based on the scope and complexity of the work being performed, but this should provide a good baseline to help you determine if LWI might be the right fit for your organization.
Lescault and Walderman professionals are flexible with regard to work location.  We review and propose the best arrangement for each client based on scope and needs.  Our engagements range from placing interim CFOs on a full-time basis to complete remote accounting support.  Please contact us for more details as it relates to your specific situation.
All clients are assigned a team consisting of a Bookkeeper, Controller, Virtual CFO, CPA and/or Partner.  These individuals are always selected with industry expertise in mind, to ensure each client benefits from the most qualified individuals.
Once the scope of work and rate are negotiated, Lescault and Walderman will sign an engagement letter outlining the parameters of our working relationship. We will also sign non-disclosure/confidentiality agreements to protect the information of all involved parties.
