Accurate record-keeping is essential to a successful business yet can also be complicated and time consuming. MAS Associates can help you with the organisation and day-to-day tasks of bookkeeping so that you can focus on your core business.
Accounting software can provide useful and timely information in the form of financial statements, reports and graphs. However, it can only provide this information if you purchase the right product and then install, setup and use it properly. We don’t just help you use the software, we help you use it more efficiently and more effectively.
MAS Associates offers the following solutions to help meet your accounting software needs:
We train you personally! Either one-on-one or several individuals within your organisation at your company’s location.
We install and configure accounting software in either single or multi-user mode.
We assist new users with initial setup including: Preferences, Lists, Customers, Vendors, Employees, Banking and Reports. We also help experienced users manage their businesses more effectively by improving their current setup. Many users experience problems and lack the ability to generate and track important information as a result of inadequate setup.
Our support service can assist you with any installation, setup or operation assistance you might need. In addition, our support is not limited just to the software part of it, but we can also provide accounting and payroll assistance.
Our review service helps companies that have the human resources to perform daily accounting and payroll tasks, but need an accounting and payroll expert to review your transactions, accounts and reports. This review ensures that you receive timely, relevant and reliable financial information. We also inform you of any corrections, adjustments or reclassifications necessary to ensure that the financial information you receive reflects the correct financial condition of your business. Reviews may be conducted at any time, but monthly reviews provide you with up-to-date information and feedback about your business.
MAS Associates’s payroll services can help you reduce the time spent on administration through developing and implementing a computerised payroll system that will facilitate processing, timely payment and preparation of annual returns.
Good cash management can improve liquidity, reduce costs, and increase profitability. MAS Associates can help you maintain optimal cash flow levels by tracking sources and uses, forecasting, and budgeting accordingly. To a business, cash flow is something that can make or break the business’ ability to survive. We can help you analyse your spending, re-balance your budget and/or debts for an optimal cash flow to support your business’ success. This balance plan would be revisited if and when there were any major changes in your business structure to ensure that you are operating at an optimal level. With our help and guidance, you will always be on top of your finances and ready for the future.
The range of needs for valuing businesses continues to widen, and MAS Associates can provide in-depth analysis to help you identify and analyse the factors that drive the value of your business or one in which you have an interest.

There are so many factors that contribute to the perceived value of a business. Our expert help can help you evaluate entities that you have an interest in and guide you towards making business decisions that you feel confident with.
From start-ups to established enterprises, businesses rely on accurate and insightful financial information in order to maintain profitability and capitalise on new opportunities.

Effective estate and trust planning can ensure financial security for loved ones. For businesses, it can maintain a smooth succession of ownership.

Having your taxes and estate thoroughly and carefully planned will ensure that your loved ones don’t have any complications to deal with during a time of loss.
