Do you mean bookkeeping or true accounting? Bookkeepers can pay bills, send out statements, balance check books and manage the accounts on a system such as Quickbooks. Some can also prepare tax returns and do financial statements. Accountants tend to be much more expensive and do things like set up systems, advise on taxes, review the bookkeeper's work, etc. Budgets really need to be created internally. Our experience has been to hire local bookkeeping services, which usually means a one or 2 person office, not a large organization. Experience with HOAs or other types of non-profit businesses is important. Recommendations from other non-profit organizations are a good source. We are blessed with enough people experienced in accounting that we have been able to do the accounting functions with volunteers. This has included preparing the financial reports and tax returns, which saves considerable money.
