WELCOME TO CLEARED ACCOUNTING
Now the fun begins...well, not really. We have to take care of a little business first. : )
Our onboarding process starts with us gathering information about you and your business. From there, we will set you up in our suite of cloud-based technology and provide you with the tools you will need to work closely with us.
To make this process a little easier, we created a "checklist" to keep you on track. Based on the services we are providing, some sections may not be applicable to your business.
New Client Information Form
Thank you for completing the form. If you need to update any information provided on the form (i.e. change in address, add/update a contact, etc.), please notify us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to ensure our records are up to date.
ShareFile: "Cleared Connect"
Online Document Sharing and Storage
For the protection of your financial and business information, we utilize a secure online portal known as ShareFile to send and receive documents. We will not accept any financial information via e-mail. ShareFile (internally known as "Cleared Connect" is also used to securely store your financial records as a virtual "file cabinet."
Once we create an account for your business, you will receive a Welcome E-mail with instructions on how to complete the creation of your account. Below are instructions on how to utilize Cleared Connect while working with us.
The checklist below details the general company documents we need for our files. Please upload these documents to the Cleared Connect portal.
If we are providing payroll services to your business, please review the checklist for a list of items we need. Please upload these items to the Cleared Connect portal.
Payroll information is not accepted via e-mail.
