It’s almost tax season! 👻💸
We can hear you groaning, but it doesn’t have to be that way — especially if you use Pilot.
Pilot is a bookkeeping and tax prep company built for startups and e-commerce businesses. Today, they handle the bookkeeping for hundreds of millions of dollars of transactions per month and have raised $59 million from notable investors (including Stripe).
"The Pilot team was an invaluable resource to us at every stage of the company: they helped set everything up for us in the early days, and they’ve really helped us look around corners because they’re experts at high-growth tech startups." - Nick Bushak, CTO of Gem
The way they see it is: you could try to find a fax machine to get your business taxes done by your uncle’s old college roommate or you could try something more modern.
Here's how Pilot is shaking things up:
🛎You’re paired with a dedicated account manager, a full-time Pilot employee who is a finance expert. Not only do they take care of your books and taxes, but they also help you put a best-in-class financial stack in place and give you advice about best practices. Think of them as your financial butler.
🤖Their team is assisted by powerful software that helps with the most error-prone pieces of bookkeeping so that your books are incredibly accurate. This means that the team spends less time clicking around in QuickBooks and more time providing a top-notch experience for you.
📈Whether you’re two people in a garage or a 200-employee company, Pilot works and grows with you. This might also be why they count hundreds of YC companies as customers.
