You didn’t start a business to track financial statements or make cash flow spreadsheets. But we did. Pilot gives you back the freedom to focus on your business, knowing your own bookkeeping expert will send you an accurate, detailed report every month.
Whether you’re starting fresh or switching from an existing service, getting started is easy. A dedicated Pilot account manager will take care of everything. You’ll work with the same account manager each month, so you can count on them to learn the unique ins-and-outs of your business — and cheer you on as you succeed.
Say goodbye to exporting CSV files and emailing attachments. Pilot integrates automatically with the services your business already uses. Your account manager will walk you through collecting initial details and from there the process is reliable and automatic. In fact, if you want assistance connecting other services (like Gusto or Expensify), Pilot’s got you covered.
While you’re focused on your business, your account manager is focused on your books. Each month, you'll receive a detailed report containing your profit and loss, balance sheet, and cash flow statement for the prior month.
Pilot uses a special blend of custom software and passionate people to deliver accurate, consistent bookkeeping.
Nothing else matters if the numbers don’t add up. We’ve channeled years of bookkeeping experience into crafting our unique, software-first approach. This means we can deliver accurate, error-free reports that make accountants and tax preparers happy.
Accrual basis bookkeeping provides the most accurate picture of how a business is doing. It’s used by nearly all large businesses, and the IRS requires it for some business structures. Pilot sets you up for success by doing accrual from the beginning.
We do all our books in the industry standard: Quickbooks Online. We don’t think you’ll ever want to leave us, but, just in case, you can rest easy knowing your data will be just as useful to any future accountant, tax preparer or other professional you want to work with.
Bookkeeping is an important foundation for any business, so we understand if you have questions. We address common concerns in our FAQ — but always feel free to reach out with specific questions.
We can seamlessly hand off your prepared books to the tax prep firm of your choice. (If you don’t have a tax preparer yet, we’re happy to recommend someone for your specific situation). Also, working with your tax prep firm is included as part of your plan — no additional fees.
Our pricing is a simple monthly subscription where you pay for what you use based on your expense rate in the prior 3 months. There are no hourly charges. If you're on Pilot Core, you can try our service for one month risk free and receive a full refund if you're not satisfied. See our pricing page for more details.
Yes! Support is included as part of your plan — no extra hourly charges to worry about. Your dedicated account manager is happy to answer any questions you might have. We strive to address questions in a business day or less.
Cash bookkeeping only looks at when money enters or leaves a bank account. Accrual bookkeeping is a more sophisticated approach that records when the money was earned or owed. Most larger companies use accrual and Pilot does accrual from day one so there’s no painful transition later.
Generally, our customers are startups, technology companies, and nonprofits with 1–300 employees. But we think Pilot is a great match for any forward thinking company no matter the industry. If you’re not sure Pilot is right for you, please get in touch with us.
Signing up for Pilot is easy. We think once you experience truly stress-free bookkeeping, you won’t want to go back.
