 Are your numbers a tangled plot? We organize your financial story so you can focus on producing and publishing yours!



Like your organization, accurate and timely reporting is what we do! We work with you to develop financial reports and visualizations that tell your organization’s financial story in a way your team can embrace and communicate to other stakeholders. Our Non-Profit Finance experts and Data Visualization team can build custom dashboards and reports to illustrate your progress toward subscription targets, royalty agreements, intellectual property valuations, inventory management, and more.



Understanding complex revenue streams can be a struggle but YPTC is here to help. We have experience managing all the nuances of revenue recognition from advance sales, subscriptions, licensing, advertising, and sales of physical or digital media, to training, education programs, and special events. We do this while meeting donor restrictions and conditional grant criteria to support your programs. We can also handle UBI (unrelated business income)!


Allocations & Cost Accounting

Tracking your jobs including overages, grants, and restrictions can strain your organizational capacity, taking the focus away from your mission. We are experts in allocations and cost accounting. We’ll help you track production costs and overhead across multiple metrics to bring clarity, deliver relevant KPIs, and get the most out of your funding sources.  


Budgeting and Forecasting

The landscape of Media & Publishing is changing constantly. Whether your lead times are long or short, accurate forecasts and multiple-year budgets are more important than ever to ensure the longevity of your organization. We can take the burden off you by training your team to become experts at budgeting and contributing regular updates to your forecasts, ensuring you’ve got the cash flow you need to make strategic decisions about investments to support your mission and your operations.
