We're a specialty trade contractor as well. Our annual volume is higher, $70 to $80 million typically, but we don't have all the entities you describe. Our total accounting staff, including me, is 5. In addition, we do have some service related departments that do their own billings and some accounts payable entry, and weak attempts at collections.
