Frequently asked questions

Do you offer discounts for pre-revenue companies?

Yes – Mehanna offers special discount pricing for pre–revenue companies. Qualified companies can receive $200 off per month for the first year. Contact us to learn more.

 
 

How do prices change as I grow?

We understand the importance of predictability and transparency. Every month, we’ll average your prior 3 months of books to understand your current expenses, as well as how your financial institution connections, special transactions, and hours of support have changed.

As an example, for an unprofitable 5-person tech startup that has less than $5M in annual revenue with roughly 80% of time being spent on qualifying R&D activities, and average salary of $100k/year, the credit might be between $20k to $60k. 

How should I calculate my monthly expenses? What does that include?

For pricing purposes, we include in expenses the money your company spends each month, including payroll, cost of goods sold, and distributions.

 

Why do you price based on expenses?

Our goal is simple and transparent pricing. In examining different models, we found that expenses closely reflected business complexity while also having the advantage of being simple to calculate. To determine the best Mehanna advisors plan for your business’ needs, we also factor in the number of financial institutions, transactions, and hours of support.

 
 

What is your cancellation policy? What if I prepaid for the year?

Your subscription will continue until the end of your billing cycle. If you decide not to renew after the year is over, you can let us know in advance and we’ll stop billing you for the next cycle.

 
 

When I prepay for a year, does that lock in my price?

No, if your business is growing rapidly, your books are growing in complexity as well. If your expenses and other support needs change and exceeds the amount you’ve prepaid for, you’ll get billed the difference that month.

 

Are there any one–time fees when I sign up for Mehanna advisors?

Yes, there’s an onboarding fee equal to one month of bookkeeping to help us make sure your setup process is a smooth one.

 
  • For product COGS (i.e. the actual cost of the items sold), we base our calculations on inventory information you share with us.
  • For Merchant Fees and Shipping COGS, we track your metrics automatically and categorize your variable expenses there.
  • For other variable costs you wish to track as COGS, we work with you to create accounts and categorization rules to implement this for your business.
