- Consistent good work, at least for an external function. Includes bookkeeping and external CFO services as budgeting and board prep. ~5k NIS / month total for all services; 9 employees.
- "One stop shop" for startups. Their CFO services help a lot for budget, forecast, board meetings summary, etc. Bookkeeping, salaries, and CFO services - about 6,000 NIS per month, for 10 employees

- They are OK, doing the annual reports, 3,000 USD
- They do their yearly review. From time to time I need their help in regards to taxes in the US and they always move fast to make it happen, but I don't feel they're doing anything out of the ordinary or giving me any extra value.
