getting started

The genesis of our company is a collective endeavor. After numerous consultations with fellow entrepreneurs in a bustling business setting, we envisioned a firm where a financial service provider and businesses could seamlessly collaborate to balance financial records and drive profitability. To break the relentless cycle of seeking clients, persuading them to enlist services for one-off assignments, and then having to start from scratch once the project was finalized, there is yearning for a more sustainable solution.


Partnering with several experienced accountants, Cornerstone Operations has been established to provide professional bookkeeping services to small and medium sized clients that are in need of their skill set. Cornerstone Operations is positioned to provide a wide array of services, including general ledger maintenance, accounts receivable and payable management, financial statement preparation, payroll processing, and so much more!
