Does your municipality have internal accounting challenges that you need help with? Did you know that Melanson offers outsourcing professionals who have the experience and knowledge to take the load off your back — fully supporting your team in any capacity you may need. Our accounting experts are up-to-date on all the state guidelines and accounting standards. You can gain the peace of mind in knowing that your accounting tasks are done properly by a qualified expert in the field.

Hiring experienced staff can be very expensive and you have to consider the inevitable overhead costs that it entails. In addition to their base salary, you have insurance and pension costs, paid time off, vacation time, and other perks that go along with having employees. Not to mention the time and money spent on-boarding and training them. We are here to help fill that gap in any capacity you may need.

We offer long-term services, such as Town Accountant, City Auditor, Finance Director, CFO, and ongoing Accounts Payable Processing. We also offer short-term services like software and chart of account conversions, account analysis and reconciliations, financial reporting, and interim Accountant, Director, or CFO positions.
