Frequently asked questions

What is Pilot?

Pilot is a bookkeeping service that maintains your company's books so that you can get back to running your business. Pilot connects to your company's financial accounts like banks, credit cards, payroll, and the other services that you use to receive or send money. Every month, we'll email you a summary when we've finished our quality assurance reviews of your books for the month, and we're available to answer your questions at any time. If we have any questions for you, we'll include them in the monthly email to you. That's it—you don't need to learn any software or wrangle any financial data.

Who is Pilot for?

Today, most of our customers are 1-100 person technology companies or non-profits. If you have a question about whether Pilot is right for you, please get in touch with us.

How does your pricing work?

Check out out our pricing page. Our pricing is always a flat monthly subscription, with no hourly charges or additional fees.

How do you store my books?

We maintain your books in Intuit Quickbooks Online, the industry standard for storing your books. That means that you aren't locked in to working with us, and other financial professionals will know how to work with the books that we've prepared for you.

Do you support accrual basis bookkeeping?

Yes, we do, and we think that it's an important step for preparing your business for the future.

How about end-of-year tax filings?

We can seamlessly hand off the books we've prepared to a CPA firm to prepare your taxes. We make this process easy for you and make sure that the information you've provided us flows through to your tax preparer, so you don't need to repeat yourself. If you have a tax preparer that you'd like to continue working with, we can work with them; otherwise, we're happy to set you up with a CPA firm who can help you with your tax filings. We don't charge any hourly charges or additional fees for working with your tax preparation firm. They will bill you directly for their services and we receive no referral fee from them.

What's your cancellation policy?

You can cancel at any time with no penalty. While we'll be sad to see you go, it's important to us that you're never locked in. We store your books in Intuit Quickbooks Online, the industry standard format, which means it's easy to take your books with you and have other finance professionals work with what we've prepared. You won't need to deal with any awkward CSV or Excel exports.
