Xero is a cloud-based accounting software that helps you keep track of your business finances. We will set up your chart of accounts and show you how to add your bank accounts so that the data can be automatically imported into the software. Once it’s all set up the transactions need to be reconciled each month. For the Incubator Level package, you will do this from the start. For the Accelerator Level package, we will do the reconciliation for the first 3 months. For both levels, we will cover the cost of the software for 3 months.
Tax preparation is not included in these packages, however, we would be happy to file your taxes for you, but there will be an additional fee.

The election allows for the taxes to be paid (if any) when shares are granted instead of the date when the shares actually vest. This can produce significant tax savings when shares vest in the future at a higher price. This election needs to be made within 30 days of the grant date.
