Consulting services & software for local government financial reporting.

Who we are

Founded in 2002, Thales Consulting Inc., creates software and provides consulting related to local government financial reporting.  Our CAFRONLINE product streamlines the preparation of financial reports, through collaboration and efficient reporting processes.

We collaborate with over 200 clients across 22 states in a cost effective manner because all aspects of our services — from set-up to training, to maintenance, can be completed remotely.


mission statement

Our mission is to identify, develop, and implement projects which are desired by local governments, provide economies of scale, and increase a government’s ability to be responsible to their constituents.


who is thales?

Among a host of other achievements, Thales of Miletus is thought to be the founder of natural philosophy and the developer of the scientific method. It could be argued that his achievements are unparalleled, because he single-handedly initiated the first western enlightenment.




Currently over 90 local governments use CAFRONLINE to create their CAFR or annual financial report. CAFRONLINE was designed to streamline the production of the CAFR. Having the entire document centrally located not only eliminates version control issues, but being web-based improves collaboration, which clients say provides the flexibility to add more resources to meet their deadlines.



BUDGETONLINE is currently being piloted in a handful of governments. Contact us if you are interested in learning more about this pilot.
