Hilaire Consulting Group (HCG) is a full-service accounting firm. We can act as your accounting department or provide services a la Carte: payroll, managerial accounting services (Treasurer, Controller, Virtual Chief Financial Officer), financial reporting (profit and loss, balance sheets), audit preparation, budgeting, Federal Compliance, cash flows, accounts payable, contract negotiation. We primarily use QuickBooks (Desktop and Enterprise) and have extensive experience with other products, including MAS 90 and ACCPAC. With our wide-ranging use of secure cloud services (Right Networks, Gusto, Dropbox), we can offer our clients 24/7 access to their company’s financial data from anywhere. We can come to your location or work remotely from our offices. Theresa Hilaire Hogg, J.D., launched HCG in 2002 as a sole proprietor and it has since grown to 4 people.
Theresa began with a desire to bring quality accounting services to small businesses, non-profits, and for-profits, allowing those owners and leaders to concentrate on their core activities and opportunities. Theresa worked as a full-time Controller/Chief Financial Officer at non-profit and for-profit companies for 25 years, gaining in-depth knowledge and experience in keeping those companies financially stable. Her husband Charles joined the company after a 30-year career in the US Coast Guard.
We love establishing close working relationships with our clients, gaining a working knowledge of their businesses and helping them in their success. HCG brings in-depth, comprehensive accounting experience to our clients, including non-profits (from one-person to dozens of employees), high-tech start-ups, churches, charities, small construction companies, and more. We are flexible and responsive to our client’s needs. We want everyone who works with us to know they have been working with accounting professionals – professionals with a deep understanding of the accounting world and provides tools and services to meet our clients’ needs.
HCG is always looking to grow our own business while improving service to our clients. The non-profit world is a particular passion of ours. Helping those who seek to make the world a better place makes for very satisfying work that sometimes does not seem like work at all. (We also assist non-profit clients in the preparation of IRS Form 990).
HCG is based in Antioch, with a roster of clients in Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco and Los Angeles. We help our clients by providing accurate and timely information about the financial status of their businesses. We provide our clients a complete package of services that in turn allows our clients to spend more time achieving their business and personal goals.
