To some accounting firms bookkeeping is a four letter word. They want to spend their time on "higher level" work. We love bookkeeping. Think of your accounting system as a pyramid - bookkeeping forms the foundation of the pyramid with your financial statements, budgets and other analysis on the top of the pyramid. If the foundation has cracks and holes the whole pyramid will eventually crumble. It is the same for any business - if your bookkeeping is riddled with mistakes, misclassifications and errors your business will eventually fail. We offer a variety of bookkeeping solutions including training your bookkeeper, handling your complex bookkeeping issues, provide full service on-site bookkeeping and provide full service remote bookkeeping.
