Recognizing the expansive and innovative opportunities through partnership, the leaders at MarkNelson LLC, a public accounting firm, and Blue Ocean Consulting, a technology company, joined forces earlier this year. In this Ignite blog feature, the Kansas Society of CPAs had the distinct honor of gaining insight into how these voyagers submerged themselves into the merger of both professional service companies; and how by offering new business advisory services to existing and new clients, they’re sailing the seas rich with opportunity and spotlighting their organization’s future-ready success.
By MarksNelson on June 18, 2018The Veterans Community Project is getting a boost from local volunteers. On Thursday, many of those volunteers came from a locally-owned accounting firm MarksNelson. Instead of work Thursday, the company is donating time to help.

That will cause some business owners to reexamine the value of those investments.
By MarksNelson on March 26, 2018It’s a good time to be in the automotive industry — or any business, as long as the stock market continues to hit record highs, unemployment remains low, and consumer confidence stays strong. But auto dealers will continue to rely on F&I to maintain profitability, bring customers back for maintenance and repairs, and create opportunities for participation in reinsurance programs.
By MarksNelson on March 22, 2018As soon as a business hires its first employee, the challenges of payroll management begin. The technicalities and need for vigilance increase exponentially as the company grows and its workforce expands. Even if it downsizes staff and turns more toward independent contractors, considerable payroll-related issues should be considered.
By MarksNelson on February 20, 2018Whether you’re hiring a new worker whose responsibilities will include bookkeeping or you’re tapping an existing employee to take over the job, you have to find a way to transfer all your knowledge about your customers and vendors, your products or services, and your overall accounting workflow to someone else. How you do that depends on a few things.

By MarksNelson on January 16, 2018In 2018, keeping up with your peers in other businesses means one thing: automation. It’s this year’s buzzword where accounting is concerned. In fact, according to a 2015 study by PwC, accounting clerks and bookkeepers comprised the #1 profession most likely to be affected by computerization and technology in the next 20 years. Human intervention will undoubtedly play a role in financial management for a long time – maybe forever. We’re seeing the very beginnings of accounting automation today, though. Are you on board?
