WHO WE ARE
We are an accounting and finance services firm that helps businesses ranging from start-ups to publicly traded companies, comprised of financial professionals with years of experience, and a wide breadth of knowledge. We help our clients make lasting improvements to their business and realize their goals. We are uniquely built for this task.
We can serve as your entire finance and accounting function from staff accountant to Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Our experience with a wide range of companies, industries, and issues allows us to obtain a deep understanding of your business. This understanding combined with our resources empowers us to provide high-quality services so our clients focus on growing their business and achieving their goals.
ACCOUNTING & TAX
Everything from setting up your chart of accounts, bookkeeping, closing the books, consolidations, and preparing financial statements and disclosures to identifying technical accounting issues, analysis, restatements, and implementing solutions or new guidance. We can also assist internal audit, manage external auditors, audit preparation, SOX 404 internal controls testing and implementation, legal entity setup, and file your tax returns.
Your most important asset is your people. We can help you build robust HR/People processes to make sure your employees are taken care of while your business stays compliant with rules and regulations. Our experts can do everything from helping your draft an employee handbook to dealing with tough HR situations to choosing and setting up your employee benefits.
You want your business running at peak operating performance. To help you accomplish this, we offer sound, critical analysis, unit economics assessment, modeling, budgeting, and forecasting. So you always know where you stand financially, and continue to make smart business decisions. We review your data throughout the year to offer insight and help you understand the story behind the numbers.
One of the most time-consuming tasks any business owner faces is payroll. Processing payroll involves much more than simply handing out paychecks. There are taxes, deductions, changes in laws, year-end documentation, employee questions, and more to worry about. We can help you set up and manage your payroll.

Senior Manager Internal Audit Zynga
After only a few years of being public, Zynga was growing at a rapid pace through acquisitions. We had to comply with many requirements including passing audits of our internal financial controls and performing SOX readiness and control implementation audits on newly acquired entities. We needed someone with experience and expertise to help us maintain, improve, and put new financial controls in place. VCG was able to provide exceptional resources to make our team stronger and maintain that compliance. We have worked with VCG for 5 years now and couldn’t be happier with our partnership.
We interviewed and worked with a number of firms to manage our accounting needs before ultimately selecting VCG. John and the team have done an amazing job handling our day-to-day needs, making suggestions, and improving our accounting operational efficiency. They are very responsive with an amazing turnaround time. I highly recommend VCG.
Head of Finance
Zeal Talent Ventures
Coming from a Big Four accounting firm I know the importance of having a strong finance team. Fast growing companies like ours face the challenges of making the right strategic business decisions and having good financial data to do that. From day one, VCG has been able to help us with improving our processes, taking the load off me so I can focus on growing our business, building out complicated analyses and models, making suggestions that have saved us money, and handling our finance and accounting needs.
