Many small businesses and nonprofits can’t afford to have a bookkeeper on staff, but the work still needs to be done. I fill that need and work with them at whatever level they require.
I have helped sole proprietor interior designers set up their own bookkeeping systems and taught them to use QuickBooks™ so they can track their income, expenses, and sales tax reliably themselves. I have provided in-house payroll services to nonprofits, as well as regular reconciliation of their bank accounts and bill-paying, so the overworked staff could focus on providing the agency’s targeted services.
With my background in construction and photography, contractors and photographers find my familiarity with their language and practices a big asset. My tenacity has helped my clients in health-care service industries (chiropractors, psychotherapists) collect all the monies due them from clients and insurance providers.
Really Busy People
Individuals who are too busy to pay their bills or reconcile their own bank accounts have found relief in having their own private bookkeeper as well. My services are also useful for those managing trusts or anyone who wants to track their investment portfolios and assets all in one place.
My clients have one thing in common: The need for accurate tracking of income and expenses, paying bills, figuring taxes, and perhaps processing payroll. I can provide these services to anyone, in any field of expertise.
