Welcome. My name is Bill Sittig and I want to help you with your organization’s financial issues. With degrees in both Finance and Accounting, coupled with over 35 years of practical experience in these fields, I am well qualified to assist your organization. My experiences are well-rounded which gives me the necessary tools to provide a wide range of accounting and financial services for my clients.
I started out of college as a commercial banker specializing in credit analysis, went back to school at night and became a CPA. I then served as an auditor for a Big Four firm specializing in financial institution audits. From there I was V.P.-Finance for a state-wide financial institution trade association and later as SVP/CFO for a large public-private partnership between the state and industry promoting tourism in the state of Florida.
My lifetime goal has been to own my own professional services firm and in 2007 I purchased the practice of a well-established CPA practitioner in Tallahassee. I have grown the business to include consulting as many companies find themselves in need of financial and/or accounting expertise on a limited or short-time basis. Some of the services I provide at an hourly rate include:
- annual budgets,
- cost analysis,
- expense allocations, and
- management and supervision of administrative functions until a permanent solution has been developed.
In addition, I write Policies & Procedures as well as Process’ & Forms. I have experience appearing before the Board of Director’s and their supporting committees such as the Audit Committee and the Finance & Budget Committee. I can meet with and negotiate products and services (i.e.: insurance, information technology, etc…) for your business or organization.
I also perform controllership functions of administering accounting processes from accounts receivable billing and collection to accounts payable processing and payment. Other accounting responsibilities which are of a high level and require regular duties which I perform include: maintaining independent reconciliations of your bank and investment accounts as well as accounting for high-value and sensitive assets.
I am very familiar with several accounting software packages and can be productive in a very short time. I can be available to assist with your auditors by preparing reconciliations and summary schedules before they arrive for their fieldwork. I have saved clients many hours of billings from their independent auditors.”
Payroll functions I provide include payroll processing and tax reporting to maintain compliance. Please see our Bookkeeping/Payroll topic for additional information regarding payroll requirements.
As a Certified Public Accountant, I have the experience to assist you with a myriad of financial issues. I look forward to providing services for you whether you live here in Tallahassee or any of our surrounding communities. Give me a call today at 850-386-2639.
