Vermont Business Magazine BURLINGTON startup Reconciled (formerly Reconciled It) has been chosen as Intuit’s 2018 US Firm of the Future. The Firm of the Future contest, now in its fourth year, searches across the globe for the most future-ready and forward-thinking accounting, bookkeeping and tax firms — those that are able to best showcase how they see the value of the cloud, use business models to better value their expertise and grow their practice with modern marketing techniques.
“I am honored that Reconciled was chosen by Intuit as the US Firm of the Future,” said Reconciled Founder and CEO Michael Ly. “But more importantly I am proud of Reconciled’s amazing accounting professionals who strive every day to provide the best service to our customers. We have been inspired by the passionate entrepreneurs and small business owners we serve across the country and with this recognition, we will continue innovating our services as the Firm of the Future.”
Reconciled received a $5,000 prize as an awardee and will now compete against the four other finalists (from Australia, India, the UK, and Canada) to win a $25,000 grand prize and the title 2018 Global Firm of the Future.
Each Firm of the Future is honored alongside one of their clients, and Reconciled’s co-honoree is local startup Ogee, a luxury organic skincare company, who will also receive a $5,000 prize. The companies began working together when Ogee won LaunchVT, the Vermont entrepreneurship competition, and received bookkeeping services as part of the prize package. Ogee has remained a Reconciled customer.
Intuit will send a videographer and producer to Reconciled’s Burlington offices to film a high-quality video entry for Reconciled’s entry into the Global Firm of the Future Competition, which will culminate at the QuickBooks Connect Conference November 5-7, 2018 in San Jose, California.
Reconciled opened its doors in Burlington in 2015, using the most innovative, best-in-class digital tools to provide online bookkeeping services to entrepreneurs and small business owners nationally and internationally. The company has grown to a staff of over 16 dedicated professionals, with offices in both Burlington, VT and Charlotte, North Carolina.
