Answers to frequently asked questions
Every business is unique, so we individualize each package, with the goal of finding a flat monthly price that allows us to maintain your books at a price you can afford. You can see some of our starting prices under the services tabs above, or request a customized quote. We will call you and ask you a few questions about your organization and bookkeeping needs, and give you a quote over the phone. Your price will be based on the overall volume and complexity of your financial transactions.
No, we don’t. The IRS has increased requirements for tax preparers in recent years, and we aren’t certified in that area, nor do we wish to be. It’s actually better this way; we specialize in bookkeeping and generating financials that empower you to make good business decisions. That way, we can provide a bridge between the day to day operations of your business and the CPA or Enrolled Agent who is only focused on preparing your taxes.
Yes, we currently have several clients in various industries whose gross monthly revenues are seven or eight figures. And if you’re not (yet) making millions, we will stand with you as you grow, providing you with the financial data you need for effective decision-making.
Most banks these days offer a kind of “guest user” access to online banking for business accounts (here’s one example), which includes viewing access for transaction details and statements, but no ability to transfer funds or initiate other transactions. Wherever possible, it is our preference to set up view access only to your bank data. Where that’s not available, we will discuss other options with you to minimize your risk exposure.
Since the onset of COVID in 2020, we have discontinued onsite services and work entirely remotely. If you are located in or near Salt Lake City, UT or Greenville, SC, we can arrange occasional in-person meetings. However, we find that we can do almost all of our work with the remote tools currently available, and we frequently host Zoom meetings with our partners and clients.
Yes, our sister company Backyard Payroll offers payroll services. Unlike Paychex or ADP, we don’t withdraw tax money from your account and hold them in trust for you; the money stays in your account and tax payments are initiated directly to the government from your bank account when they are due.
No; that requires specialized training and is best handled by someone on site. However, we can still do the bookkeeping and prepare financials for the overall business.
We are always happy if we can help! There is no charge for quick questions or advice. Just call our office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get back to you within a day or two.
We have done bookkeeping for businesses in almost every industry imaginable: construction, professional services, interior design, entertainment, medical, nonprofit, legal, auto mechanic, MLM, retail, online sales, IT, cryptocurrency, and many more. The only thing we can safely say we don’t do is bookkeeping for government entities and publicly traded corporations.
When you sign up for bookkeeping with us, you are assigned a primary bookkeeper who will be responsible for your books. We do sometimes reassign bookkeepers, but it’s pretty rare. However, you do benefit from the strength of our team! We hold company meetings regularly, share information securely as needed, and keep each other updated, so if your assigned bookkeeper takes some medical leave or goes on vacation, there will be someone else who can step in and make sure your books are kept current.
We primarily use Quickbooks, either the desktop version or Quickbooks Online; however, we are also familiar with Xero, Wave, CosmoLex, and others. We also can work with you to integrate data from other systems, such as online webshops or POS systems, into your company file. Luckily, bookkeeping principles remain the same in any accounting software.
Yes, of course! Our remote server is well encrypted and backed up daily. We have strict security protocols to keep data safe, cybersecurity insurance to protect us and our clients, and ongoing cybersecurity training for all employees. We use Advantage IT for all our IT and cybersecurity needs.
One of the reasons you are looking for a bookkeeper is simply that you need someone else to take care of it, so you can work on other things. Let us do that for you! Over the past several years, we have refined our remote tools and procedures so we can do the bulk of the work without your direct involvement–without having to remote in to your personal computer, take up space in your office, or pester you for information. After we’ve done everything we can on our own, we contact you with a short list of questions only you can answer, and then we can issue your financials. Let it be that easy!
Yes, of course. We can provide a certificate of insurance upon request.
Yes, as needed. If your only goal is personal budgeting, it’s probably better to use one of the many free online personal finance tools. However, there are scenarios where people request we track their personal finances or where it makes sense for us to add that to our service package, such as when personal finances are intermingled with business, or where someone needs help tracking expenses to identify additional tax deductions. Also, we have helped prepare household income and expense statements in multiple cases where financials were needed for divorce proceedings and similar court cases.
