BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there. 

I’m the president of an emerging consulting startup called ARI Resources. We work in talent development and recruitment. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Pasquesi Partners LLC? 

Pasquesi Partners has been with me since I first started setting up my company about two years ago. I hired them to handle our accounting needs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Pasquesi Partners oversees all of my accounting needs, including billing my clients, managing my business credit card and checking account, and advising me on money to set aside for taxes. They’ve also initially helped with my business taxes for the first year, but we’ve decided to hand the material over to my personal tax resource so that she could roll it into my tax returns.

Beyond accounting-based services, Pasquesi Partners has been a great help in getting me acclimated to being a business owner. They’ve provided literature to walk me through the accounting process and generated opportunities to network with other helpful professionals. This has included an attorney, whom I love, a liability insurance provider, and other resources.

What is the team composition?  

I work with Rob (Founder, Pasquesi Partners LLC) and his team. 

How did you come to work with Pasquesi Partners LLC? 

I found them through a personal referral. 

How much have you invested with them? 

So far, I’ve spent about $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement? 

Their work started in May 2017 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Rather than just focusing on our accounting needs, they’re really invested in making sure that we succeed. I now understand the importance of paying out and timing and have the due diligence to set aside money for taxes. As a result, I run a pretty tight ship, so I don’t feel the need to reel back on my expenses. As a acclimate into year two, I’m sure to pay more attention to our overhead and look forward to working with them there, too.

How did Pasquesi Partners LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re timely with all of their communications and boast an extremely fast turnaround time. Whenever I ask them to bill a client, they complete the task within a matter of hours, which is faster than other accounting firms I’ve worked with. I’m also pleased with their updates. They provide regular aging reports, profit and loss reports, and more.

What did you find most impressive about them? 

They’ve given me very specialized service, and I always feel like I’m their only client. Over the last few years, they’ve grown quite a bit and have taken on more clients, which is a testament to their efforts as a team. It can be challenging to work with so many smaller business owners without sacrificing the quality service, but they make it a point to let us know we’re an important client.

Are there any areas they could improve? 

No, I can’t come up with anything. I’m very pleased with their work, and Rob is a great partner. He’s got a good persona and great equanimity. He’s warm but direct and knowledgeable, so I know that I’m in good hands.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Try to be clear in your needs. But if you’re a startup and need a resource that can work with you as you figure out all the moving parts, then Pasquesi Partners is a great option. They’re patient and will steer you well; it’s one of the things I’ve appreciated most from them.
