A Fixed Low-Cost

Expert Financial Support Service

for Startups & Small Businesses

You run a young startup or a small business and are inevitably focusing your energy and resources on product and business development. You have delegated your financial tasks to a Bookkeeper, Office Manager or an Accountant and are not ready to hire a CFO.

You know your financial systems and records must remain a priority and should adhere to best practices early on so you can:

  • make better business decisions,
  • maintain readiness for the next round of financing or exit, and
  • avoid last minute cleanups which are frustrating and potentially very costly.
With ASK VMISM, a fixed low-cost service, you can now boost the effectiveness and productivity of your financial team by gaining access to Anthony Nassar, a user-friendly financial expert with 20+ years of experience in finance and accounting, who will answer your questions as frequently as daily, to help you build a solid financial organization.

You will be getting guidance and coaching from a senior financial professional, a CFO type, you can rely on. As we work together, we will identify areas to address or improve such as:

  • Setting up your accounting systems or your chart of accounts
  • Accounting processes and controls
  • Recording transactions in QuickBooks
  • Month end close
  • Financial Statements
  • Financing
  • Cap Table
  • Financial Modeling
  • Budgeting
  • Financial Analyses
  • Board reports
  • Best practices in accounting and finance, or
  • Other finance/accounting topics

What do I get with ASK VMI?
ASK VMI is a month to month subscription service for startups and small businesses, which provides:

  • Unlimited calls and/or emails during the month, Monday through Friday (9am-5pm Pacific time), to ask financial/accounting questions,
  • Access to templates developed by Anthony Nassar, including depreciation, vacation accrual, stock option vesting, cap table and chart of accounts, which we will adapt to your business,
         plus if you select the Premium Plan described below,
  • Two monthly face to face on-site meetings of 2 hours each to discuss various financial/accounting questions or issues you need answers or guidance on.

Please note that ASK VMI is an advisory service aimed at providing you and one designated person on your financial team with ongoing coaching and support for the duration of the subscription. It does not include performing actual accounting and financial tasks such as setting up a system or process, recording journal entries, working on a month end close, developing analyses in a spreadsheet, or creating a financial model. VMI can perform such tasks upon mutual agreement between you and VMI for an additional fee.

How you benefit
You gain access to Anthony Nassar, a financial expert with 20+ years of experience in financial management, who will help you build and maintain a sound financial organization early on in the life of your startup. With a subscription to ASK VMI you will:

  • Know how to build a solid foundation for your financial systems and be able to make ongoing improvements to accommodate the growth of your startup.
  • Use our help to build reports and tools to make better business decisions.
  • Get answers to your questions as they come up. No need to batch them for when it is convenient for your advisor to answer them.

  • Save money by enjoying a service offering answers to unlimited questions for a fixed low fee. Say goodbye to the fear of "how much will it cost" every time you pick up the phone to ask your advisor a financial/accounting question.
