We help companies solve problems in accounting, technology and risk management.

Our passion for results and remarkable client relationships are the foundation of our culture.

We help our clients achieve their business goals by providing accounting, finance, governance, risk, compliance, IT and security services that improve operations, strengthen controls, create efficiencies, and protect data.

Whether you need to meet compliance regulations, implement system or infrastructure changes, or are preparing to grow your business, we can help.

Experienced

We are accredited, seasoned professionals who offer real-world guidance based upon years of experience and proven skills.

Regionally Focused

We’re in your backyard, part of the same community. Our proximity affords us first-hand knowledge of issues, challenges and opportunities in the region where we live and work. When you need us, we’ll be there – face to face.

Practical Problem Solvers

We deliver solutions, not just theoretical knowledge. Unlike other firms who take a one-size-fits-all approach to service, we customize solutions to meet your unique needs and desired results.

Employee Based

We’re not a staffing company or temp firm. We value continuity, and deliver a consistent group of professionals with deep expertise. You’ll know your team, and we’ll know your organization.

Accounting & Finance

Clark Schaefer Consulting is affiliated with Top 100 CPA and advisory firm Clark Schaefer Hackett. Leveraging this connection, we provide the following services:

Accounting Advisory Services & Co-Sourcing

When you need additional resources because of staff transitions, health-related matters or unexpected terminations, our consultants get up to speed quickly because they have done the same kind of work in the past. They can perform the needed tasks and either maintain the role until the need no longer exists, or transition the role to a new or returning member from your own staff. And as an added benefit, our experienced management personnel help monitor and review the work our consultants do for you.

Accounting Process Improvement

Our consultants can help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your accounting processes. By understanding your goals and current financial processes and systems, we can identify gaps and recommend the best ways to implement needed changes. Our services include:

  • Process improvement and redesign
  • Financial statement analysis and improvement
  • Cash flow performance and improvement
  • Costing review and improvement
Accounting Training

Whether it’s a comprehensive training manual for a full-service accounting team or specialized training for a new set of regulations, we provide educational materials that are clear and easy to understand and communicate.  Our Accounting Training services include:

  • Training Program Design
  • Training Delivery
  • Train the Trainer
Documentation & Governance

Updating policies and procedures is time consuming and challenging. And creating documentation from scratch can be even more difficult. Our consultants can help you review, revise and create well-designed policies and procedures that not only keep your organization compliant, but also provide:

  • Accountability
  • Education
  • Efficiency
  • Consistency
Reconciliations

The concept of reconciliations is simple: balancing an account or bank statement.  But a reconciliation can include a variety of functional areas within an organization.

Our consultants have designed a framework for structuring an efficient reconciliation process, and can help you keep your numbers in agreement.

Business Systems

Whether the goal is to increase efficiencies, reduce costs, strengthen controls or just stay current with technology trends, most organizations will change their accounting software. It can be daunting to change the systems you rely on to run your business, and determining the best solution can be challenging. We can help.

Information & Cybersecurity

Data breaches maintain their reign in the headlines as cyberattacks continue to happen at a disturbingly high frequency. Consumer information has never been more vulnerable, and no industry is immune to the threat of an attack. How are you protecting your data?

  • Audit Data Analytics
  • Internal Audit Co-Sourcing
  • Internal & IT Audit Training
  • Regulatory Compliance
